Chelsea is presently on an almost perfect run to the EPL titles following their Unbeaten run since the start of the season and with a center forward that’s firing from all angles like Romelu Lukaku another win away from home doesn’t seem unlikely.
Tuchel has all odds on his side given that Tottenham has most of their key players Injured with their on-form forward Heung min Son unexpected to feature in the game Nuno Santos would have a lot of thinking to do on how best to break down Chelsea compact defense line.
He would bet on Harry Kane reigniting that form that won him the Top Scorer award and best playmaker award last season to turn up against Chelsea as he hasn’t been firing goals of late.
Chelsea Players Unlikely to Start against Tottenham
Saul, Kepa, and Chalobah are unlikely to start for Chelsea against Tottenham as Saul for example needs time to adjust Tuchel’s tactical gameplan as he was awful the last time Tuchel played him for 45 minutes.
Kepa on his part would have to do with the bench as Mendy is on undropable form currently and would have to manage the few minutes he would get from cup games. Chalobah is class but is too young to be given a starting preference over Azpiculeta and Thiago Silva given that both players are fully fit.
