LIVE: Premier League Wednesday latest

Both Loic Remy and Didier Drogba have been used sparingly in the Premier League this season, though one of the pair will be picked to start up front for the Blues against Maurico Pochettino's side.

Tottenham will look to continue their good run of form away from home this season, having lost only once to Man City so far, though the North London side haven’t beaten Chelsea since April 2010.
