Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have named their starting lineups for the first Premier League clash to be held at Wembley this season.
The ‘home’ side will be looking to capitalise on last week’s 2-0 victory at St. James’s Park, while the reigning champions are still looking for their first points of the campaign following last Saturday’s surprise 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley.
For Spurs, Kieran Tripper returns to the starting lineup having missed last weekend through injury – he replaces Kyle Walker-Peters at right-back. Victor Wanyama also comes back in having been a substitute at Newcastle, Moussa Sissoko is the one to miss out to make way for the Kenyan in a reshuffled midfield.

Chelsea, meanwhile, had changes forced upon them following the red cards given to Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas at Stamford Bridge last weekend. New signing Tiemoue Bakayoko comes in for the latter, while Andreas Christensen starts in the wake of Cahill’s suspension.
