Tottenham Hotspur continues the roller coaster we call a season on Sunday as Spurs host the Chelsea Blues; these are the 11 players we should expect to start in Lilywhite.

Do not expect many changes in the Spurs 11 when Chelsea comes to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon for another London derby. Tottenham is coming off an important win against West Ham, seemingly righting the ship after consecutive losses. Chelsea is looking for a similar bounce with a win over Spurs. With a chance to solidify a hold on a top-four spot and continue to bury Chelsea in a midtable scrap, here are the 11 Spurs who will start against the Blues.

Tottenham forwards to face Chelsea

Although Heung-min Son once again scored in his last match, perhaps bringing the South Korean off the bench is the best move for Spurs, with four of his five goals coming as a substitute. This is our logic, as our front three is unchanged from the group that beat the Hammers.

Left-forward – Richarlison

Whether or not he is more of a striker or a left-forward is probably debatable and has more to do with where Harry Kane goes than anything. Regardless, the Brazilian is going to get another run-out on Sunday. If nothing else, Richarlison will run hard for an hour, chasing down balls and pressuring the Chelsea defenders. This effort may lead to some chances but will lead to tired legs when Son comes on in the second half.

Center-forward – Harry Kane

Barring some unforeseen situation, Harry Kane is starting against Chelsea on Sunday. Kane was ill earlier in the week but seems to have recovered and should be ready for the Blues. Looking to extend his club-record goal tally and inch closer to Haaland in the Golden Boot race, Kane will be ready Sunday.

Right-forward – Dejan Kulusevski

Although he did not score or have an assist against West Ham, it is unlikely Emerson Royal would have been running unmarked down the pitch for his goal had Dejan Kulusevski not been there to draw some attention. Dekki was just fractionally off from connecting on several crosses to Kane and a couple of shots. If he can cut in on his left against the Blues, he can do some damage on Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal.
