10 min: This is nice and open. Kovacic had to release Hazard in the middle with a simple pass, but he kicks her too far in front of his teammate and a great opportunity is dismissed. Pedro then moved the goal on the left wing and went straight, but could only send the ball into Lloris's hands at the nearby point. Eriksen sent Cain down to the left, but he headed for Rudigger's wing.
8 min: Kane still manages to put a cross in Chelsea's box, but Luis is there to hit her.
6 min: Игуаин удря пощата! Sisko does not handle a high ball on the edge of his own zone. He descends to the Iguaine who strikes the ball and sends a fine effort that curves to the right side of the door, and Loris is flat. But this repels carpentry and rejects it. The spurs accumulate at the other end, Kane shoots from a distance. He is blocked. This is a lot of fun.
5 min: Alonso smudges the free kick directly into the wall. 15 min 4 min: But then Chelsea won another free kick near the Spurs box, Kovacic dropped his shoulder down into the right channel, cutting his inside, and removes a fake from Winx. This is in a much more dangerous position.
3 min: Hazard's delivery is unusually poor and his inspiration fails to defeat the first man. 19659019] 3.03 h EST 15:03
2 min: Chelsea receives a meaningful touch. Rudigger tries to relieve the danger from the left. Not exactly. But Alonso wins a free kick from Sisoko, and that's a change to load the box.
And we are off! , Blue and Davis are well on the left to win deeply in Chelsea. A good position to throw the ball into a mixer, but they prefer to get around for a while instead, and soon enough is enough for Lorris's feet.
The teams are out! Classical aesthetics with the two teams who carry their first choice, Chelsea in royal blue, Spurs in the lily. And this is the classic London derby atmosphere, with which Stamford Bridge jumps under the lights. "This is a pretty attacking bench that Sarry has called," notes Neil Butler. "I'm a little concerned that Alonso is starting and there are no full backs on the bench; but then Sarry would not use them. I foresee Villian for Pedro, Barkley for Kovacic and Girus for Iguaine at some point around the 70th minute without any injury. It's hard to read between the lines here, but I feel the frustrated security of a supporter who has seen all this before. Anyway, enough time to quickly break up Harry J. Stars, "and we'll be shut down every minute!
More from Sarri: "I think Cabalero is ready, he has a very good experience. We should not worry about him. " Mauriceio Peceno also spoke with BT Sport: " Ian Vurtongen felt yesterday a problem in his thigh. We hope this is not a big problem and it can be available for the next match. " And finally a little bit of Harry Kane: " This is a London derby, we had great fighting with Chelsea. this season and over the last few years. So it will be the same again tonight. Obviously, both teams will want to come back from the weekend so it's up to us to play our style and try to get the three points. "
These are consequences. " We should not be particularly surprised that Sarry has dropped Kepa. Here he was yesterday, dropping a pretty obvious hint.
Here are the two Chelsea keepers who survive their warm up before the game. Everyone understands well.
Maurizio Sarri, right up to now, explains his decision to release Kepa. – This is a choice. This is a message to my group. That we are a group, not 25 players. That's my choice. "So our answer is: Maurizio Sarki has dropped Kepa Arisabaglau, all 71 million pounds from him on the bench."
This is a punishment for the wicked disobedience of the Wembley keeper towards the end of the League Cup final against Manchester City. Deputy Penalty Expert Willy Cabalero takes his place … at last. This is one of four changes made by Chelsea. Marcos Alonso, Matteo Kovacic and Gonzalo Iguaine occupy the seats of Emerson, Ross Barkley and Willian.
By the way, Spurs make four changes from the XI, who went down to Burnley on Saturday. Keiran Tryppi, Davison Sanchez, Ben Davis and Eric Lamela are coming; Danny Rose, Juan Wight, Serge Aurrier and Jan Vertongen make way.
Chelsea: Caballero, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Kantte, Jorginio, Kovacic, Pedro, .

Will the Tottenham gap close between Liverpool and Manchester City? Will the Greek victories in the Stamford Bridge Championship be scored after a 28-year wait for a victory last year? Can they finish double Chelsea for the first time since 1971? Will Chelsea return from the final League Cup mission to return to the top four? Whether it will fall into a wild quarrel as a glamorous fashion when the Spurs have exhausted the title for the title in 2016.
Questions, questions. While being honest, the only person really worried is this: will Maurizio Sarri take the hard-core netminder Kepa Arrizabalaga after the theatrical show in Wembley last Sunday? Soon we'll find out! The teams come soon, then … it's on!
Kick off: 20:00 GMT.
