Chelsea , Spurs Clash At Stamford Bridge In High-Stake Encounter

The London derby already feels pivotal in the new season with the game set to give an early indication of where both clubs Chelsea and Spurs.

The reason why it is such a huge challenge for Antonio Conte’s side is due to the club’s dismal record at Stamford Bridge, where Spurs have won just one of their last 37 matches in all competitions, having drawn 12 and lost 24.

Two of those defeats came under Conte last season as Spurs lost 2-0 in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final and were then beaten again three weeks later by the same score line in the Premier League.

But following their convincing 4-1 opening-weekend win over Southampton – and a busy summer of transfer activity married with a full pre-season – the Italian’s tune has dramatically changed.

Conte’s confidence coupled with Spurs’ come-from-behind win over Saints has certainly underlined their potential this season.

But the same level of optimism does not surround Chelsea, despite an opening-weekend win at Everton – their first at Goodison Park in five years.

The Blues may have signed Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella but boss Thomas Tuchel has cut a frustrated figure at the club’s transfer activity amid a summer of upheaval.

Chelsea boss Tuchel knows his side will have to up their performance against Spurs following their 1-0 win at Goodison Park after the German acknowledged their London rivals have had an “excellent” transfer window.

A positive result for Tuchel over their  London rivals would certainly provide a more promising season performance with three weeks left to sign more players.
