Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea go head-to-head in the Premier League's late kick-off on New Year's Day.

The two sides met at the start of December, and despite an impressive display from Spurs at Stamford Bridge, it was the Blues who eventually ran out clear winners in west London.

Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for better at White Hart Lane, and he's named a strong side that sees Harry Kane lead the line alone. He's supported by Christian Eriksen, whilst Nabil Bentaleb returns in defensive midfield.

Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, is not taking the trip to north London lightly judging by the starting XI he's picked today, with the strongest possible Chelsea side selected.

That means Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas are partnered in defensive midfield, with Oscar, Willian and Eden Hazard ahead of them. Diego Costa leads the line, with Didier Drogba and Loic Remy available off the bench.
