Antonio Conte's men are once again unchanged as they look to continue their winning streak in the league against last season's third-placed finishers

Chelsea have again named an unchanged XI as they seek to regain their place at the top of the Premier League table with a win over Tottenham.

The Blues have won six games in a row in the Premier League, without conceding, with Antonio Conte resisting the urge to tinker with his line-up.

As a result, Willian, Oscar and former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas must again settle for a place on the bench. Diego Costa, who has scored 10 goals in the top flight this season, leads the line with Eden Hazard and Pedro supporting him.

Meanwhile, Spurs travel to Stamford Bridge off the back of a disappointing early exit from the Champions League.

Harry Winks, who started in Monaco and impressed on his first Premier League start against West Ham, drops to the bench as Dele Alli comes in.

Jan Vertonghen, a surprise absentee from the starting XI against Monaco, returns to cover the suspended Danny Rose at left-back.

Chelsea XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard. Subs: Begovic, Ivanovic, Chalobah, Oscar, Fabregas, Willian, Batshuayi.

Tottenham XI: Lloris (c), Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Wimmer, Wanyama, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Son, Kane. Subs: Vorm, Trippier, Carter-Vickers, Winks, Onomah, Nkoudou, Janssen.
