After our 1-0 win on the opening day at Everton, Edouard Mendy continues between the posts and it looks like Reece James will join Thiago Silva and Kalidou Koulibaly in the back three, with Cesar Azpilicueta on the bench.

Jorginho captains N’Golo Kante in midfield, but both of Tuchel’s changes come widely. Ruben Loftus-Cheek starts after coming off the bench at Everton, while Cucurella makes his full-length Chelsea debut on the left.

It is an unchanged front three of Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz on the attack.

Tottenham are unchanged from the team that beat Southampton 4-1 last week, although summer signing Richarlison could make his debut from the bench after being suspended for their first game of 2022/23.

Chelsea (3-4-3): mendy; James, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly; Loftus-Cheek, Kante, Jorginho (c), Cucurella; Mount, Sterling, Havertz
