How Chelsea will line up against Tottenham with Mount and Tomori set to miss out

FRANK LAMPARD will take on Jose Mourinho for the second time in his managerial career on Sunday.

The Chelsea chief will take on his former boss armed with a fully fit squad - except from long-term absentee Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

At the pre-match press conference, Lampard confirmed Ross Barkely, Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud are in contention.

He said: "Ruben's making good progress which is really positive, but he's nowhere near contention for matchplay yet.

"Other than that, we're all pretty good. Ross [Barkely], [Fikayo] Tomori and Giroud are fine.

"We've got a fit squad. Nice selection problems I suppose."

The Blues could decide to start Tomori on the bench after he missed the last two matches with a hip problem.

Instead, Lampard could stick with Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger in the heart of his defence with Emerson on the left and Cesar Azpilicueta on the right.

Mason Mount looks set to miss out in favour of Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and Matteo Kovacic in the middle.

Christian Pulisic and Willian would start with Tammy Abraham leading the line.

Giroud is back in the mix for Lampard, but Abraham already has 13 goals and four assists under his belt this term.

Lampard - who has guided his side to nine wins in 17 attempts this season - has revealed how he wants his squad to prove themselves.

He added: "A lot of people are fit, we have decent numbers and a competitive squad - they are showing that in training. I have to choose what I feel is right.

"Off the back of a negative result last week and the edginess that brings, players are trying to push to show they want to play in this big game. It makes it difficult.

"But the rules are always the same, it's what you do day in, day out that gets you back in that team.

"It's not just every Saturday or every matchday, its every training session and how you are around the group."

Frank Lampard says he's happy to go up against Mourinho but thinks the Tottenham v Chelsea rivalry will top him v Jose
