Zouma: Zouma was outstanding against Arsenal, and he is expected to start on Wednesday.
Rudiger: Rudiger is also expected to feature from the beginning.
Christensen and Azpiliqueta has been training with the team in the past few days, and they are also expected to feature in the game
Alonso: Marco’s Alonso could return to his position(left wing-back) after missing their last game.
Hudson-Odoi: Hudson-Odoi played as a left-wing-back against Arsenal, but he could move to the right-wing if Alonso returns to the starting lineup.
Kovacic, Kante, Ziyech: Kovacic and Kante have been training with the squad in the last few weeks, so they are expected to partner in midfield, while Ziyech could play behind the two strikers as a number 10.

This lineup would produce a lot of goals for Chelsea against Tottenham, given Hakim Ziyech would create many goalscoring chances for the two strikers.
