Tottenham Hotspur are riding high at the top of the Premier League and having drawn at Arsenal, they have maximum points against Liverpool and Manchester United at home, as well as brushing aside Fulham and Sheffield United amongst others.
Without Harry Kane has been no problem for Spurs as Son and Maddison are playing extremely well and with Basouma and Sarr in the middle of the park, they are now playing a brand of football which the Spurs fans would have hoped for.
Defensively is where the massive improvement has come. Last season Spurs were often 2 or 3 nil down away which always gave them a mountain to climb, but this season with a new Goal Keeper and back line, Spurs have looked so much more solid.
Last time out at home Spurs beat Fulham 2-0 and this was a convincing win for the home side with Vicaro, Romero and van den Ven all dominating the back line and with Udogie and Porro at full backs, Spurs have the unit to be proud off.
Chelsea come to The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium looking to improve on their mid table position and signs were looking positive after back to back Premier League wins over Fulham and Burnley, and then a superb 70 minutes against Arsenal at home.
Arsenal came back from the 2-0 deficit against Chelsea and this will be two points dropped by The Blues, but signs were promising that the new team Pochettino had built was going to start performing well.
However a 2-0 loss at home to Brentford bought everyone back to earth at Chelsea and although a moral boosting Carabao Cup win over Blackburn, Pochettino takes his Chelsea side back to his former stomping ground and to be reunited with Spurs fans who once adored him.
Chelsea aren’t firing on all cylinders, but they do have a very good record against Tottenham and will be looking to this to give them a chance to stop Spurs title challenge continuing for another week.
Expect Spurs to have a lot of possession, but Chelsea will be ready to compete in the midfield and this could be where the game is won and lost.
There is a potential for both teams to cancel eachother out so scoring could be at a minimum.
