Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Is this the ultimate Tottenham v. Chelsea combined XI?

It’s the big one! Spurs host Chelsea this weekend at White Hart Lane.

Both sides enjoyed European success in midweek, with the home side overcoming FK Qarabag in the Europa League, whilst Jose Mourinho’s Blues stuffed Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the Champions League group stages.

The last time the two sides met in North London, Mauricio Pochettino’s side enjoyed a memorable 5-3 battering of the current champions, although were on the end of a convincing 3-0 defeat when they visited Stamford Bridge.

Spurs go into the game unbeaten since an opening day defeat to Manchester United, with the visitors starting to turn around their poor start to the year after overcoming Norwich.

Three points could take Tottenham third, depending on other results, with Chelsea looking to move out of the bottom half. It will surely be another exciting London derby, and with Harry Kane in-form, could he continue his impressive run against the Blues?

We asked you lot who you thought would fit perfectly in to a Tottenham-Chelsea combined XI on Twitter, and here’s who you picked…

GK: Hugo Lloris


There was only really one choice. With Courtois out and Begovic as back-up, the Spurs goalkeeper took the number one shirt in your combined XI team.

RB: César Azpilicueta

Cesar Azpilicueta

Despite Kyle Walker scoring at the weekend against West Ham, you backed the little Spaniard to start in his ‘real’ position of right-back. Good call…

CB: Gary Cahill


Cahill has been superb since signing from Bolton back in 2012, and you chose him to beat out Jan Vertonghen for the first centre-back spot.

CB: Toby Alderweireld


One of the signings of the summer in the Premier League. The Belgian centre-half has enjoyed a wonderful season so far, picking up the odd goal along the way too.

LB: Danny Rose

West Bromwich Albion v Tottenham Hotspur - Barclays Premier League

The attacking intent of Spurs’ full-backs has been part of their success so far this campaign, so it was no surprise that you backed Danny Rose for the spot on the left flank.

CM: Nemanja Matic

Nemanja Matic

Hard as nails, Matic continues to be an integral part of the Chelsea core. Despite the miraculous season of Eric Dier, you picked the Serbian international as the midfield general.

CM: Cesc Fabregas

Fabregas 1

At one point he was a Chelsea traitor, but now a permanent part of their side. Fabregas’ attacking prowess could prove vital to their hopes of beating Spurs on Sunday.

AM: Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen (centre)

There was only really one winner here. Hazard or Eriksen, and you chose this free-kick specialist. Eriksen continues to rise at Spurs, whilst Hazard seems to be doing the opposite at Stamford Bridge.

AM: Willian


The most controversial of your selections. The man that Spurs tried to sign, but instead got Erik Lamela. Ironically, Willian was the man you picked ahead of the £30million man!

ST: Harry Kane

Harry Kane (4)

Need we explain this one? Kane continues to bag the goals for Spurs this year, and despite his slow start, the ‘one season wonder’ tag is well and truly dead and buried.

ST: Diego Costa

Diego Costa

This hairy little devil just edged Heung-Min Son for you guys. To be honest, this would be a pretty deadly partnership up-front!
