After their 2-0 defeat to Manchester United on Monday night, Chelsea have another massive match with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues need to bounce back if they are to stay in the Premier League’s top four places when the weekend is through.
However, Frank Lampard’s side have had a bit of a boost with the injury to Son Heung-Min, with South Korean set to be out of action for a few weeks.
Spurs will also be without Harry Kane, with the England skipper also missing for several weeks.
It gives Jose Mourinho little options at the weekend over his attacking positions, and he will be leaning on others throughout the game.
But where will the
Steven Bergwijn made an immediate impact to life at Spurs when he bagged a crucial goal against Manchester City in a big win.
The 22-year-old, however, is still finding his feet in the Premier League, and playing off the left it would be a big contest up against Reece James.
He can certainly create and has the pace to cause Chelsea some real issues on the counter attack, something that has punished the Blues a lot this season.
With the injuries to Son and Kane, there is going to be a lot of pressure on Lucas Moura to perform at a top level and take over the mantle as the main forward.
However, Moura is not particularly the most reliable and consistent player in the Premier League, but he can certainly have his moments of class.
The danger for the Blues will be his pace and getting the space to cause danger on the counter attack, something that Mourinho will be leaning on massively now.
Moura might be forced to play up top and lead the line, meaning that Chelsea might have to sit a little deeper to not let him have the space behind to run into.
Erik Lamela has had a frustrating time over the past couple of seasons due to injury, but whenever he is back then he always has a bit of magic in him.
Lamela has struggled with another knock recently, but the serious injuries to Kante and Son might jump Mourinho into rushing him back quicker then he would have liked.
There is no doubt the 27-year-old is not a direct striker replacement, but he has his most amount of joy when playing just behind a striker and finding the space.
If Lampard plays a midfield two, then the pairing of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic with have to be cautious of the runs behind them.
When Mourinho joined Spurs, Dele Alli really had an upturn in form, and with seven Premier League goals this season he is always one to keep an eye on.
Where Alli has caused Chelsea the most amount of issues in the past is when he finds the gaps between the defenders with late runs into the box.
Chelsea could go for the five at the back which worked so well at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, meaning communication will be key for the centre-backs.
There is going to be a lot of pressure on the 23-year-old to really perform, which might work in Chelsea’s future with Alli sometimes letting his emotions get away with him.
Troy Parrott is the up and coming star at Tottenham and now is the only recognised centre-forward that Mourinho has to choose.
However, at just 18 the Ireland youngster might not be chosen by the Spurs boss for such a massive match.
If Parrott does play then there will be an element of the unknowns for Chelsea’s defence, and how they deal with the youngster.
Being physical with him would be the best option, and making sure that he doesn’t have the space to really settle into the match.
