Forwards: Cole Palmer, Nicolas Jackson, Raheem Sterling.
Mykhaylo Mudryk is back in full training ahead of Monday’s fixture, which will give Pochettino a boost as he looks to his misfiring attack to provide a response after a woeful display against Brentford. But it remains to be seen if the Ukrainian will be risked.
The 22-year-old winger has been out with a muscle injury but is now expected to return for the London derby, although he may have to settle for a place on the bench after missing the last two matches.
That means struggling striker Jackson is likely to keep his place, despite concerns over his form. Palmer and Sterling will be stationed on either side of the 22-year-old as inverted wingers, with Christopher Nkunku (knee) not expected back until after the international break.
Armando Broja is a doubt after the Chelsea boss said of the Albania striker: “Maybe he will be available to be on the bench on Monday and he is training today but it is still not confirmed.”
Chelsea predicted XI to face Tottenham: Sanchez; James, Disasi, Silva, Colwill; Gallagher, Caicedo, Fernandez; Palmer, Jackson, Sterling.
