Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea Preview


Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Date: 19th September 2021

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

After their European exertions, Tottenham and Chelsea will turn their attention to the Premier League as both sides meet for the London derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Sunday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were held to 2-2 draw with Rennes in the Europa Conference League to take their winless run to two games.

They began the season brightly and were on top of the pile during the September international break. But since the return of club football from the international break, Spurs have found it difficult to get going and are entering this tie without a win in their last two games (D1, L1).

Their last PL match saw them lose three goals to nil against their London rivals Crystal Palace. They will now look to avoid another chastening defeat at the hands of their big London rivals who they have failed to beat in their last seven attempts.

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea are joint-top after four games and are heading into this game on a seven-game unbeaten run.

The Blues defeated Zenit St Petersburg in their Champions League game on Tuesday thanks to a Romelu Lukaku goal—his fourth since his arrival from Inter Milan in the summer. The Belgian has transformed the Chelsea attack and has looked every inch like the player Chelsea had in mind when they made him their most expensive buy ever.

The visitors also have a strong defence and have conceded only one goal in the league so far. They will hope to compound further misery on their rivals by picking up three points in this game.
