TOT vs CHE Dream11: Rejuvenated under Mourinho, Spurs favourite to win the London Derby.
Jose Mourinho will face his former club on Sunday at the London Derby. Spurs have had a resurgent run in the EPL ever since the Portugese Manager has taken over. Mourinho has won 12 out of 13 home games played against his previously managed clubs. A victory on Sunday will take Spurs to the fourth spot on the table. Last year Spurs won the same fixture with a 3 – 1 scoreline at the Wembley Stadium.
Frank Lampard walks into the Derby with his full strength squad and I feel he will most likely stick to 4-3-3 combination. This combination will provide necessary hurdles to the series of attacks that are expected from their fierce opponents. The Blues desperately need to get back to winning ways if they want to aim the Champions League spot for the next season.
Injuries: Ben Davies (ankle injury), Erik Lamela (Hamstring injury) and Hugo Lloris (shoulder injury)
Doubtful: Tanguy Ndombele (groin injury) and Michel Vorm (calf injury)

Doubtful: Fikayo Tomori, Oliver Giroud and Ross Barkley

TOT vs CHE Dream11 Goalkeeper
I am anticipating a result in favour of Spurs in the London Derby, that’s the reason why I have picked Gazzaniga over Keppa. Gazzaniga who is an interim keeper for the Spurs in his 11 appearances has made 43 saves and has had 1 clean sheet. My predicted scoreline is 3 – 1 which means Keppa will score less points than Gazzaniga.
TOT vs CHE Dream11 Defenders
This London Derby as always is a high pressure game and demands pace and accuracy. Both sides have lightning fast players. To maintain a constant supply of through balls and aerial attacks fullbacks will have a busy game and that’s the reason I have Azpilicueta and James in my team. The Blues duo has already collectively assessed 3 goals so far this season.
Since I had a limited budget I had to settle for Sanchez who has completed 796 passes and has cleared 57 dangerous attacks from his opponents this season. Given an opportunity I would have selected Vertonghen over Sanchez
TOT vs CHE Dream11 Midfielders
I am anticipating that Lampard will play with a 4-3-3 combination and Mourinho will play with a 4-5-1 combination. This gives me a wide range of 8 midfielders to choose from. Ali,Pulisic and Willian walked into my side on the basis of their current forms and goal scoring abilities. Ali has scored 5 goals in his last meeting against Chelsea in all competitions. To add to his scoring Ali has 5 goals in the EPL this season. Due to budget constraints I had to fit Dier in my team.
Pulisic and Willian are known for their swift movement and gaining momentum from the wings. Pulisic has scored 5, whereas Williand has scored 2 this season in the EPL.
TOT vs CHE Dream11 Forwards
The forward lineup is the real power house of this game. Since Giroud and Batshuayi are not expected to start I was left with only 4 options to select from. I selected Son over Moura on the basis of current form and past stats against Chelsea in the recent past. Kane and Abraham are automatic selections for me in this fixture. Kane has scored 9 goals whereas Abraham has 11 goals under his belt this season.
TOT vs CHE Dream 11 Power Players
Due to their goal scoring abilities on a regular basis I have selected Kane (C) and Abraham (VC) as my captain and vice captain respectively.
