Tottenham Hotspur have started the Premier League season like true title contenders, currently sitting joint-top of the table with the only team to have beaten them so far -- North London rivals Arsenal. André Villas-Boas' side meet Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Saturday, with José Mourinho's team just a couple of points off the pace.
It hasn't been an easy few weeks for Chelsea, who had gone a month without winning -- including a shock Champions League defeat to Basel -- before they saw off Fulham 2-0 in their last Premier League match. They'll be hoping to have finally found much-needed momentum heading into this one.
However, they'll be without midfielder Marco van Ginkel after the crushing news he could miss the season with a bad knee injury, while Ramires is in doubt with a hip problem. For Spurs, Étienne Capoue and Younès Kaboul are both unavailable, and could be joined on the sidelines by Danny Rose, Emmanuel Adebayor and Aaron Lennon.
