CM: Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb
Mason and Bentaleb are Pochettino’s favourite midfield pairing. Bentaleb missed the game against United through illness, but he is fit again.
AM: Andros Townsend
Townsend played 79 minutes against United and, although he produced little in an attacking sense, he worked very hard. That sort of endeavour could be key against Chelsea, as could the England winger’s pace.
