Team News: Kane on bench as Spurs face Chelsea

Harry Kane is named on the Tottenham Hotspur bench as Mauricio Pochettino's charges face Chelsea in Sunday's Premier League meeting at Stamford Bridge.

Harry Kane has been named on the Tottenham Hotspur bench as Mauricio Pochettino's charges face Chelsea in Sunday's Premier League meeting at Stamford Bridge.

The England striker was expected to be on the sidelines for an extended period of time due to an ankle ligament injury suffered against Bournemouth earlier this month.

However, Kane's seemingly quicker-than-anticipated recovery from the issue has seen him claim a spot on the Spurs bench for the big game in West London.

Pochettino has made three changes elsewhere, with Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli - who makes his 100th top-flight appearance - returning after the 3-0 FA Cup win over Swansea City last time out.

As for Chelsea, first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is again absent from the squad, having failed to recover from a hamstring injury in time for the Easter Sunday encounter.

The one change for the Blues comes in midfield, where Tiemoue Bakayoko is replaced by Cesc Fabregas, while Alvaro Morata starts as the sole striker with Eden Hazard and Willian in support.

Chelsea: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Hazard; Morata
Subs: Eduardo, Cahill, Emerson, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Dembele; Lamela, Eriksen, Alli; Son
Subs: Vorm, Aurier, Rose, Wanyama, Sissoko, Lucas, Kane
