Tottenham v Chelsea preview
Left-back Danny Rose is likely to make his return from a toe injury on Saturday as Tottenham play host to London rivals Chelsea.
Defender Younes Kaboul (adductor) is doubtful, but midfielder Etienne Capoue remains sidelined with an ankle injury.
Spurs will give winger Aaron Lennon (foot) a fitness test on Friday while striker Emmanuel Adebayor is out through illness.
Chelsea will be without summer signing Marco Van Ginkel, with the Dutch midfielder expected to miss the remainder of the season after damaging knee ligaments in a Capital One Cup clash with Swindon on Tuesday.
Ramires, who replaced Van Ginkel, was also forced off in midweek and has been rated as 'a major doubt' to face Spurs as he nurses a hip complaint.
Juan Mata, David Luiz, Fernando Torres and Willian were all handed starting berths at the County Ground, but Jose Mourinho is likely to freshen things up again in an effort to keep everyone on their toes.
