Antonio Conte’s Tottenham will be looking for revenge this weekend as the Italian heads back to former club Chelsea.

Chelsea ended Spurs’ Carabao Cup quest earlier this month and Conte will be looking to build on their late midweek win at Leicester.

However, despite their late heroics at the King Power, Conte has confirmed he will make changes for this one.

The fit again Eric Dier is set replace Japhet Tanganga in defence with Matt Doherty coming in for the injured Emerson at right back.

Steven Bergwijn’s brace flipped it for Spurs against the Foxes and Conte will be tempted to start the Dutchman in this one.

As for Chelsea, their injury picture hasn’t altered following a draw at Brighton, but Thomas Tuchel could also reshuffle.

A lack of options at the back should be an unchanged defence but Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz could come back in from the start.

And this one wraps up the Premier League action this weekend with a 4.30pm start on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
