Notes: Luiz is back in the XI for Rob Holding, while Maitland-Niles enters for the injured Bukayo Saka. Nketiah gets a rare start to due injuries and suspensions on the wing.

Notes: Trossard hopes to return from injury, while someone aims to replace Tariq Lamptey on the wing. Alzate could return to the XI, but he or Gross will fight for a spot outside.

Burnley at Manchester City

Notes: Rodriguez stays in the starting XI after Burnley secured their first three points of the season last match. Pope is replaced by Peacock-Farrell after his head injury suffered last week.

Chelsea v. Tottenham Hotspur

Injury Report

PlayerTeamPosInjuryStatusEst. Return
Christian PulisicCHEF/MHamstringGTD11/29/2020

Projected Lineup (4-2-3-1 v. Tottenham): Edouard Mendy (GK), Reece James (DR), Thiago Silva (DC), Kurt Zouma (DC), Ben Chilwell (DL), N'Golo Kante (DMC), Jorginho (DMC), Mason Mount (AML),  Kai Havertz (AMC), Hakim Ziyech (AMR), Timo Werner (FW)

Notes: Havertz could return to the starting XI, replacing Tammy Abraham. If not, there's a chance his return moves Mount back to the bench, but he's played well in recent contests. Silva also stays in the back after starting midweek.
