The only words that can come out of my mouth after that loss to Man United are "I'm Disappointed". From the Injuries, to the VAR decisions, luck was just not on our side that night. Moving on to this weekend, Chelsea go up against Tottenham. The North London side will be looking to bounce back from a defeat in the Champions League to RB Leipzig. Chelsea will have to win this game to keep the gap between the 4th and 5th. A loss would mean that Chelsea could drop down to as far as 7th place. The most positive news this week though, is that Ruben Loftus-Cheek is finally ready to be in the matchday squad. We could see him make a small appearance of the bench for about 10 mins against the Spurs. Chelsea would be very glad to hear that Son is out for the London Derby. Kane is also out for this match having picked up an injury against Southampton on New Year's Day. Dele Alli is 100% fit and will be looking to score again against Chelsea scoring 6 goals and 2 Assists in 8 matches against The Blues. The Midfielder loves to make those sneaky runs in which a lot of his goals against Chelsea have come from. Chelsea will be looking to attack Tottenham from their left to exploit the space left by Aurier when he attacks. This usually leaves Tottenham quite vulnerable at times as they now play with 3 at the back. This would be quite a challenge for Chelsea knowing that our Left side isn't as strong as it used to be. This, however, will be quite important to try and breakdown Tottenham's defence in order to put some pressure on Tottenham to make silly mistakes which in then Chelsea can exploit from different sides of the pitch. Team News: N'golo Kante and Pulisic are out injured. Unconfirmed reports state that CHO will be okay for this game. Tammy is 70% fit and again will be assessed for the game. Ruben is fit and will most probably make the bench. Christensen is available to play. Predicted lineup: (4-3-3) Kepa, James, Christensen, Tomori, Azpilicueta, Joginho, Kovacic, Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Abraham (Giroud). Score Prediction: Chelsea 2 - 1 Tottenham Hotspur
