Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Referee: Andre Marriner
Spurs host London rivals Chelsea on Thursday night, in what promises to be an exciting and hard-fought derby.
Thomas Tuchel will be ecstatic with his side’s dominant 2-0 victory against Burnley a few days back. While the German seems to be experimenting a bit with his squad (for eg- Alonso started ahead of Chilwell and even scored a goal), he seems to be preferring the 3 at the back system which has seen the resurgence of club captain Azpilicueta and earlier out of favour Rudiger. Although the German boss will know that this will be his first big test in the Premier League.
Chelsea currently sit 8th in the table and Tuchel will be looking to exploit a Kane-less Spurs who don’t seem to have much of a plan B. While Mourinho will be looking to give his adversary a real taste of some physical Premier League football.
