Chelsea could have a fully fit squad to pick from with the news that Christian Pulisic should be fit.

The USA international has been sidelined for a month with a hamstring injury but Frank Lampard has said he has made good progress recently and could feature.

Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva were rested in last weekend’s win at Newcastle and will likely return.

For Tottenham, Matt Doherty missed their win over Manchester City last weekend due to a positive COVID-19 test but should be back on Sunday.

However, Toby Alderweireld will miss the next few weeks with the groin issue he picked up while facing City.
