Chelsea targeting Mauricio Pochettino as next manager

David Luiz (knee) is definitely out for three more weeks and Ross Barkley (hamstring) is being eased back into shape with the development team on Saturday.

But my focus is to win games with Tottenham.

He might have had a poor campaign so far, a point underlined by England manager Gareth Southgate's comments that the young midfielder place in the team is not set in stone, but Dele Alli is a player tailor-made for Premier League action. Spurs are the better side, and I'm happy to back them at a generous [3.3].

A record of four defeats from their last six top-flight games is not an encouraging one for the team from the capital.

Although, he will not win a third Premier League trophy this season his inclusion into this combined XI was an easy decision. And yet, despite occasionally being exposed against top opposition - Manchester City, Liverpool and Juventus, for example - Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez have forged a reliable defensive partnership, shipping just 18 goals in 20 league games.
