Lineups: Chelsea v Tottenham – Maddison drops out – The Spurs Web

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Ange Postecoglou has named his squad that will take to the field in tonight’s Premier League match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have lost just one of their past 33 home games against Tottenham – 3-1 in April 2018 when Spurs were managed by their current boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham know they need to get all three points from the game if they want to have a realistic chance of guiding Aston Villa into fourth place in the Premier League and securing qualification for the Champions League.

Ange Postecoglou’s side have looked weak defensively, especially from set pieces, and have lost two of their past three away games in the Premier League (D1), the same number as in their previous fourteen (W7 D5).

There needs to be more urgency in attack as we have failed to score in both defeats, having failed to score in only two of the previous 34 away games in the league.
