Chelsea will be desperate to turn around their dismal form in a London derby with Champions League-chasing Tottenham Hotspur.

The Blues are on a five-match winless run and head to north London on the back of 1-0 defeats against Borussia Dortmund and rock-bottom Southampton.

Pressure is growing on Graham Potter as his expensively-assembled squad continues to flatter to deceive.

Chelsea are 10th in the league standings, 11 points behind Spurs in the fourth and final Champions League place.

They need to turn things around quickly if they are to salvage anything from a bad season, but Tottenham will be determined to compound their misery and consolidate their top-four spot.

Spurs manager Antonio Conte is still absent as he recovers from an operation, and they will need to overcome bad recent history here, as Chelsea are unbeaten in the last eight meetings.

Kick-off is at 1.30pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Team news

Antonio Conte is absent, with Cristian Stellini standing in for the Italian during his recovery.

Hugo Lloris, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon and Yves Bissouma are injured for Spurs, who are unchanged from last weekend's win at home to West Ham, with Heung-min Son on the bench once again.

Chelsea’s list of absentees includes Armando Broja, Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic, Edouard Mendy, N’Golo Kante and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Graham Potter makes six changes to the Chelsea line-up. Reece James, Thiago Silva, Raheem Sterling, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech all come in.

Tottenham XI: Forster; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Royal, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Davies; Kulusevski, Richarlison; Kane.

Chelsea XI: Kepa; James; Koulibaly, Silva, Chilwell; Loftus-Cheek, Fernandez; Ziyech, Felix, Sterling; Havertz.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
