Jose Mourinho has had plenty of time to prepare his Tottenham Hotspur side for the visit of Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Mourinhotoldfootball.londonon Fridaynot to rule out some changesto the Team in the way they are set up against Chelsea after his full, uninterrupted week of being able to work with the players.
Harry Winksis now fit and ready to start matches after more than a week back in training whileTanguy Ndombelehas also just returned to the fold this week.
Against his old team,Mourinhomust decide Whether he needs more power in the center of the pitch or more attacking threat up front. It will be a difficult balance with the threat of Frank Lampard’s team to think about.
The Spurs boss has said that Moussa Sissoko
‘s best position is on the right of the attacking three behind Harry Kane and having Winks back could free the Frenchman up to provide the defensive cover and attacking charge in the role as he seeks a third consecutive goal at home.
However, with Dele Alli and Son Heung-min safe in their roles that would mean dropping Lucas Moura to the bench, a harsh and potentially unpopular decision among the fans after his terrific goal at Wolves.
The backline is unlikely to change after looking much tighter at Molineux while Eric Dier performed well in front of them in last weekend’s victory in the Midlands.
Here is the team we reckon Mourinho will go for at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
(4-2-3-1) Gazzaniga, Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen; Dier, Winks; Sissoko, Alli, Son; Kane.
