Chelsea's London rivals were without Son Heung-min, Eric Dier and Ryan Sessegnon for the match whilst Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Davison Sanchez also did not train.

Speaking on whether any of the players will be available for the match against Thomas Tuchel's side, Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo said: “I cannot tell you. They are being taken care of by the medical department. But it’s been tough. It feels painful, it feels really bad.”
