@Geo; Everywhere, @Targeting

1′ Chelsea get the first half underway.

The players emerge from the tunnel. A minute’s applause is held following the death of former Tottenham and Chelsea striker, Jimmy Greaves.

Chelsea are on the brink of history today. Chelsea have won each of their last five away league London derbies – they’ve never won six in a row on the road before in their league history.

Chelsea, meanwhile, make just three changes. The main news is that Edouard Mendy is injured and Kepa replaces him in goal. James and Ziyech also make way with Silva and Havertz coming in.

Tottenham make nine changes to the side that drew in the UEFA Conference League against Rennes. The main headline there is that Son returns from injury to replace Bergwijn on the wing, while Lo Celso and Ndombele make rare league starts together.

SUBS: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Saul Niguez, Hakim Ziyech, N’Golo Kante, Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Marcus Bettinelli, Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner.

CHELSEA (3-4-2-1): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Alonso; Mason Mount, Kai Havertz; Romelu Lukaku.

SUBS: Ben Davies, Matt Doherty, Oliver Skipp, Davinson Sanchez, Joe Rodon, Dane Scarlett, Pierluigi Gollini, Harry Winks, Bryan Gil.

TOTTENHAM (4-3-3): Hugo Lloris; Emerson, Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon; Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Dele Alli; Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Kane, Son-Heung Min.

Chelsea have made an even better start to the season. They’re unbeaten with 10 points from four games and they’ll be looking for a statement win in this London derby to consolidate their title credentials. 

Hello and welcome to live commentary of this Premier League fixture between Tottenham and Chelsea. The hosts enter this one following a solid start to the season where they’ve collected nine points from four games. However, the home fans will expect a response today after their disappointing 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend.
