Chelsea vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

The first meeting between two of last seasons top six takes place on Sunday as Chelsea entertain Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Both sides opened their 2022-23 accounts with victories, with Jorginho’s penalty enough for Chelsea to claim all three points at Everton.

In a game of very few chances, the match was overshadowed by a horrible injury early on to Everton defender Ben Godfrey.

Tottenham rallied from an early goal down to thrash Southampton 4-1, with Dejan Kulusevski scoring one and assisting another.

Both wing-backs were heavily involved through out and Ryan Sessegnon scored one, with Emerson Royal assisting two of the four goals.

Match history

The league meeting between the two at the Bridge saw Hakim Ziyech produce probably his best game for Chelsea, sealing the victory with a superb long range goal.

Team news
Kalidou Koulibaly will be fine here, despite coming off with 15 minutes remaining in the win over Everton.

Marc Cucurella is likely to be named among the substitutes again here, with Ben Chilwell set to continue in the left wing-back role.

Like Chelsea, Spurs will probably name an unchanged XI here, meaning the likes of Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Clement Lenglet will remain substitutes.

Fellow new signing Richarlison was banned for the Saints victory, but will be available here.

Expected starting XI’s
Chelsea (3-4-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Sterling, Havertz, Mount
Tottenham (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son


Result: Chelsea
Chelsea have an incredible recent record against Tottenham and despite the latter bridging the gap ahead of the new season, we still expect a home win here

Correct Score: 2-1
Unlikely to be anything as comfortable as last year, but a narrow Blues win is probable

Anytime Goalscorer: Thiago Silva
Thiago Silva opened the scoring in both meetings last year and will cause Spurs a threat from set-pieces
