Chelsea are also without several big-hitters for the London derby with Ben Chilwell, Romeo Lavia, Wesley Fofana, Christopher Nkunku, Trevoh Chalobah and Carney Cukwuemeka all missing out.
However, Pochettino’s men have been handed a slight boost in attack as Mykhaylo Mudryk and Armando Broja both return to the matchday squad.
Prediction: Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea
Tottenham have made a dream start to the season under new manager Ange Postecoglou with eight wins and two draws from their opening 10 games.
Everything surrounding the North London club seems very positive at the moment and without the burden of European football, they are playing with a sense of intensity and exuberance that we haven’t seen since Pochettino’s time in the dugout nearly four years ago.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are yet to find their feet in the Premier League this season. Any signs of optimism from the 2-2 draw with Arsenal were quickly squashed by a demoralising 2-0 loss to Brentford.
The Blues have played good football at times, but have lacked a sense of cutting edge in the final third.
Pochettino will be determined to get one over his former club, but based on current form it’s hard to see anything other than a hard-fought 1-0 win for Tottenham.
