Tottenham will be going in search of a statement victory under Antonio Conte when they visit his former club Chelsea in the Premier League.

Spurs were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by the Blues earlier this month and the Spurs boss lamented the gulf in quality between the two teams afterwards.

However, they will be buoyed by the exhilarating conclusion to their 3-2 win over Leicester in midweek, when Steven Bergwijn struck twice inside two minutes deep into stoppage time to complete a sensational late comeback for Spurs.

Here's how Tottenham could line up this weekend.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Has committed his future to the club with a new contract, much to the delight of Spurs fans.

Japhet Tanganga (CB) - Needs to make up for a horror evening against Chelsea in west London in the Carabao Cup.

Davinson Sanchez (CB) - The Colombian has been forced to provide cover in the middle of Conte's back three in the absence of Eric Dier.

Ben Davies (CB) - Netted an unfortunate own goal in his last outing at Stamford Bridge.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Emerson Royal (RWB) - It's no secret that Conte is looking for an upgrade on the summer arrival from Barcelona.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Offers bite and power in midfield, which will be required in this weekend's derby clash.

Harry Winks (CM) - Appears rejuvanated under Conte after a couple of years in the wilderness.

Oliver Skipp (CM) - Enjoyed a very successful loan spell with Norwich last season and Conte is beginning to reap the rewards.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) - Boasts the quality with his crosses from wide to unlock opposing defences.

3. Forwards

Harry Kane (ST) - Owns an impressive goalscoring record against Chelsea over the years and is coming off the back of one of his most impressive performances this season.

Lucas Moura (ST) - Can often look rash in front of goal, but his pace is such an effective weapon for Spurs.
