Giroud, Barkley starts, Kovacic benched in probable Chelsea line-up vs Tottenham

The Interlull is over and the Premier League is back with Chelsea set to play against one of their biggest City rivals Tottenham Hotspurs.

The Blues are yet to lose a game since Maurizio Sarri assumed the helms of their affairs and he is poised to continue the run. Chelsea ended last season outside top four places of the table but this term, they are one of the contenders of the League.

Tottenham are no push overs in the League, as they are only one point adrift of Chelsea on the table. A win for the Blues will see them extend their point difference over the Lilywhites.

Chelsea Injuries

Chelsea are one if the very few clubs that have  clean slate of health as all their squad members are fit. They were all in their last training sesssion.

“No big problems. As usual after the national teams, there are some little problems,” Sarri said ahead of Spurs. “Some with little injuries, some a little bit tired. Fortunately, we don’t have big problems. Kovacic is doing better.

“He had an ankle problem, but he is doing better yesterday in training with the team. And so I think that he will be able to play.”
