Algerian midfielder Nabil Bentaleb has recovered from illness in time for the New Year's Day tie between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea at White Hart Lane.

The Spurs academy product has solidified his position in Spurs' midfield under new boss Mauricio Pochettino, and will be hoping to go straight back into the starting line-up for the visit of the Blues.

Changes made

Pochettino made four changes for the clash with Manchester United on Sunday, and right back Kyle Walker and winger Erik Lamela would expect to return for the match against the league leaders in place of Vlad Chiriches and Andros Townsend respectively.

The draw against the Red Devils made it five games unbeaten for Spurs in all competitions, and they have not lost in the league since they faced Chelsea at the beginning of December.

Despite starting the game at Stamford Bridge well, Pochettino's men eventually succumbed to a 3-0 defeat and the Argentine will hope for a better display in front of his home fans in North London.

Harry Kane has solidified his place in the starting line-up with some impressive recent performances, whilst Christian Eriksen is beginning to show the form that Spurs fans have been hoping for.

Ryan Mason has forced his way into the side and won't be dislodged for the visit of Jose Mourinho's side, whilst Nacer Chadli could get the nod because of his match-winning ability against the league leaders.
