Match day Preview: Tottenham vs Chelsea

London clubs Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea will open the premier league after the international break. Both clubs are in excellent form this season and offer a big threat to champions Manchester City and Liverpool. Chelsea are the highest scorers in the division after City, and they remain unbeaten in the top flight after 12 league games. Spurs continue to host their matches at the national stadium as they wait on the delayed construction work on their new ground to be completed. This match marks the return of Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen who missed last nine matches due to a hamstring injury. Kieran Tripper is a doubt for Spurs after being withdrawn in the win over Crystal Palace a fortnight ago. For Chelsea, Mateo Kovacic is the only concern as Ross Barkley is ready to replace him in midfield. The two teams go into the clash will just one point difference with Chelsea sitting in third place and Tottenham in fourth. Tottenham have won three of their last seven Premier League games against Chelsea. Chelsea have won just 2 out of 12 away games against Tottenham but White Hart Lane and Wembley are not the same. The Blues have a better record at  Cup games in Wembley. This should be a great game and for both sets of fans, this is the game to win this season. Pochettino will be looking to end the “Sarri ball” hype and come above them while Maurizio Sarri will be looking to keep his unbeaten run with his unique style of play and keep up the title race more interesting.
