Today’s London derby between Tottenham and Chelsea looks fierce, and Antonio Conte must make some crucial decisions.
The Italian will be want to maintain continuity in his lineups after watching his squad thrash Southampton last week.
The one huge decision Conte must make is whether to play Ryan Sessegnon or Ivan Perisic at left wing-back, according to Football London. However, heading into a big game against a top four foe will always set the cogs turning for Conte.
The only significant decision for Conte to make today is between the dynamic Sessegnon and the seasoned Perisic, according to FL’s prediction of their starting lineup against the Blues, with the rest of the first XI set to pick itself following last week’s display.
And according to FL, Sessegnon will certainly be chosen over Perisic today. According to reports, Perisic is still not as physically fit as his younger rival, hence Sessegnon is anticipated to get the job.

Ryan Sessegnon has had to wait for his turn at Spurs because loan transfers and injuries have occasionally impeded his growth in north London.
He appears to have taken advantage of Antonio Conte’s leadership, though, and he is now in a situation where Conte will find it difficult to leave him out. After some exceptional training performances, Conte earlier referred to him as a “wonderful” young player and said that he was outstanding last week.
In today’s crucial encounter at The Bridge, Sessegnon will be hoping to have a significant impression. The rest of the league will get the message that Spurs are serious about this season if they can defeat Chelsea.
