Tottenham vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Mauricio Pochettino returns to face Tottenham for the first time with his Chelsea side in desperate need of a result away to the league leaders.

Spurs’ incredible start to the season continues as they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 last Friday evening.

A Joel Ward own goal was doubled by Son Heung-Min, meaning Jordan Ayew’s late goal was no more than a consolation.

Chelsea’s struggles continued as they were beaten 2-0 at home by Brentford, with Bryan Mbeumo scoring one and assisting the other.

They did progress into the Quarter-Finals of the Carabao Cup midweek though, easing to a 2-0 home win against Blackburn Rovers.

Match history

Oliver Skipp opened the scoring with a superb volley, before Harry Kane sealed the win late on.

Team news
Destiny Udogie is a big doubt, but with Ben Davies also likely missing, it’s probable he’ll be risked.

Brennan Johnson could come in for Richarlison, but this would be the only other change from the Palace win.

Reece James could make his first league start since the opening day having got 60 minutes in the Carabao Cup midweek.

Nicolas Jackson may well drop out with Cole Palmer leading the line in a similar set up to a recent draw with Arsenal.

Expected starting XI’s
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Porro, Romero, van de Ven, Udogie;  Bissouma, Sarr; Kulusevski, Maddison, Richarlison; Son
Chelsea (4-3-3): Sanchez; James, Silva, Disasi, Colwill; Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher; Sterling, Palmer, Mudryk


Result: Tottenham
Spurs are in superb form and their momentum should see them edge past Chelsea
