Thibaut Courtois has failed his fitness race for Chelsea clash with Tottenham – while Harry Kane starts on the bench for Spurs.

Goalkeeper Courtois sustained a hamstring problem before the international break, meaning Willy Caballero deputises, while centre-back Andreas Christensen has been struggling with fatigue but makes the starting XI.

Meanwhile, Kane suffered ankle ligament damage three weeks ago but has recovered quickly to return.
