Not confident, but we are bound to have a good performance considering our mixed form. Spurs with key players injured, the pressure is all on us as Spurs have nothing to lose.

Return of the 3 at the back 

If possible without Christensen, the lad is tragic.

Yeah that should be the winning combination. I could see James finding Giroud with his great crosses. However i fear Lampard will start the same team like against United.

Hoping for a draw here,  likely a low scoring one considering both teams trouble scoring lately.

Is Abraham still out injured and not likely to play?

Abraham reported fit 

Missed half of Lampard's press conference, so Tammy fit what about Odoi?

CHO out. May be available against Bayern. 

Pulisic still out with no expected return date. (All the more reason we need to get Sancho)

Tammy only 70% but will be in the squad. 

Kante out 3 weeks. 

Ruben still trying to get match fitness. 

Pussy cat Christensen available.

Think i perhaps misheard but Lampard said that Rudiger got a kid yesterday, he might be not available tomorrow then?

Am I seeing things or did they just show Son as part of the spurs lineup? 
 

As crap as Willian can be, I dunno how you decide to drop him for Barkley

Chelsea look a bit sloppy. Rudiger and Kovacic both losing the ball with plenty of time on it to begin with.

Spurs playing fairly defensively. Understandably so.

Mount and Moura both go close. Game seems to be opening up a bit more.

GIROUD!

First has a shot on target, Barkley's rebound hits the post and Giroud volleys in on that rebound. Well taken!

Makes you wonder why Giroud hasn't started before...

Giroud showing Lampard what he was missing. Nice finish.

Giroud, of course. He honestly makes teams so much better. 

He's very intelligent. Something Chelsea seem to have been missing going forward. Abraham is good but Giroud's experience is so clear to see.

Everyone loves pace these days though. Something to be said about a player that can read a game and consistently get a shot on target.

At what point does Caballero make a clumsy mistake leading to a Spurs goal?

Giroud looked like a man on a mission when he was brought on against Man Utd. Finally gets his start. Still think a move would've been great for him.

Lo Celso kicks out like Son and Maguire. Perhaps not to the same extent...

It's become a common tactical mistake of just loading up on pace for a lot of big teams - look at PSG this week putting Mbappe up top. 

You'll never get the benefit of it if you don't have a smart player who can make space up front, and that has nothing to do with pace. Firmino isn't pacey and he's arguably the best CF in the world.

Giroud has been a professional during his entire mistreatment. Mental how only now he starts. 

Should've played all of Batshuayi’s minutes and some of Tammy’s
