Dele Alli: Tottenham midfielder should face Aston Villa

Chelsea have won just one of their last nine games at Tottenham going into Sunday’s latest Premier League encounter at White Hart Lane.

Team news

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli serves a one-game suspension after picking up his fifth booking of the season in last weekend’s win over West Ham. Kyle Walker, Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose will return after being rested for Thursday night’s Europa League win at Qarabag.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have a major concern over John Terry, who has an ankle injury. Ramires is another doubt with a muscle injury, but Cesc Fabregas is fit to play despite a minor toe injury.

Kick-off at White Hart Lane on Sunday is at 12pm.
