    Spurs with a full strength team except for the GK position?

    Strong team for Spurs. Hopefully a high intensity game and they get tired.

    Spurs should be winning easily with this Chelsea lineup.

    This trophy is important for Poch.

    No Morata at all. Is he definitely off then?

    Strong team from Spurs.

    Apart from maybe Luiz, Kovacic and Pedro, that's Chelsea's strongest line-up no?

    Is starting Hudson-Odoi purely an attempt to keep him?

    That's a full strength lineup from Chelsea, barring David Luiz and Kovacic.

    Why are people acting like the Chelsea line up isn’t strong as well?

    He played really well at the weekend and Pedro & Giroud are not fully fit and Morata is garbage.

    Interested to see how Hudson-Odoi gets on now that he’s starting. Seasoned professionals usually suffer in performance in the midst of a transfer wrangle, let alone inexperienced teenagers. A lot of pressure on his young shoulders tonight.

    Hazard as a false 9, not sure about it.

    Very hard to call this one, both teams strong. 1-1 or 2-1 to Spurs

    There's nothing special about Chelsea except Hazard tbf. Very beatable side.

    Hopefully, Kane, Dele, Eriksen, Trippier and Alderweireld don't get injuries....

    I find it a bit weird that the official lineup comes with a sponsored link to betting odds.

    Great to see CHO start. Good we're going false 9, hopefully work as against City. Hope Christensen has a good game big opportunity for him. Luiz rested for the league I guess.

    Morata hamstring, really? Off to Séville me thinks.

    Chelsea aren't resting anyone proper, that's just how their squad is now :D

    Basically Hazard + 10 players since Kante is out of position and so not as effective.

    :nono: Sarri Ball means Jorginho is protecting that back 4 against the likes of Alli and Son. What can go wrong?

    I think we're going to sit deeper than usual. Sarri Ball cancelled tonight. Similar to against City where we only had 38 percent possession.

    That had to do with City actually being the team that dominates possession. This Spurs team ain't all that in possession and will most likely surrender it. Sarri had no choice, because trying to outplay City in the midfield is suicide.

    As long as Gazza keeps his head and the attackers hit the target, I think so.
