Confirmed line-ups: Chadli omitted, Dier starts for Tottenham clash against Chelsea

By Tony Hughes

Nacer Chadli has been overlooked for Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Chelsea on Monday night.

Heung Min-Son has got the nod to replace the banned Dele Alli for the showdown at Stamford Bridge, which Spurs must win to keep their faint title hopes alive.

Eric Dier has been passed fit to start after suffering concussion in the London club’s 1-1 draw against West Brom last Monday.

Chelsea have dropped Eden Hazard down to the bench and chosen to start with Willian, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro in the attacking midfield positions, with Nemanja Matic partnering John Obi-Mikel in central midfield.

Spurs start the match eight points behind leaders Leicester and must take all three points to take the title race into the final two weekends of the season.
