Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to expand the longest current unbeaten run of the top flight to 13 games when they host Chelsea at White Hart Lane today afternoon, but they have to shrug off a six-and-a-half-hour jet lag following Thursday night’s victory at Qarabag in Europa League.

Although, the confidence in the team might become enough justification for Spurs boss Pochettino to resist making many changes against Chelsea.

However, there was very little sympathy from the Portuguese manager José Mourinho for the hectic schedule as he pointed to Chelsea’s hectic schedule around the 2014 Champions League semi-final against Atlético Madrid.

Actually Mourinho has his own issues with John Terry and Ramires picking up injuries in Israel in the Champions League match midweek. With 10 points separating the two London outfits right now, Spurs can hit hard to Chelsea’s hopes of finishing in the top four this term after their frustrating start.

Here are the lineups of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea for today’s match.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting Lineup: Lloris (C), Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Dier, Mason; Dembele, Eriksen, Son; Kane

Tottenham Hotspur Substitutes: Vorm, Trippier, Wimmer, Carroll, Lamela, Onomah, Clinton 

Chelsea Starting Lineup: Begovic; Ivanovic (c), Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Fabregas, Matic; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Hazard

Chelsea Substitutes: Djilobodji, Baba Rahman, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Diego Costa.
