Chelsea Vs Tottenham

Anelka, welcome to the greatest football club on the planet.

The 15million transfer of the French striker from Bolton together with the return of Petr Cech and Claude Makelele, will certainly boost the blue spirits ahead of the clash with their neighbours from North London. Grant believes Anelka will provide the extra firepower to help them overcome the loss of Salomon Kalou and Didier Drogba during the next month to the African Nations Cup.

The absence of Jermaine Jenas is the only major concern for the spurs, apart from the defense. The return of King has certainly strengthened their defence. It will be great to see how spurs defence cope with the latest 'true blue'. Tottenham have not won a competitive match at Stamford Bridge since February 1990, when they claimed a 2-1 victory in the old First Division. Hopefully Juande Ramos will not damage this record.

Guess at the squad:
Belleti, Alex, Carvalho, A.Cole
Wright-Phillips, Ballack, Makelele
J.Cole, Pizzaro, Malouda
Subs: Cudicini, Sidwell, Ben-Haim, Bridge, Anelka

Refree: Alan Wiley
