Chelsea’s Premier League campaign gets its first big challenge as it sets up to host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Thomas Tuchel’s men will have to deal with a resurgent Tottenham Hotspur side which began its season in rampaging fashion with a 4-1 win over Southampton last week.
Chelsea, meanwhile, eked out a slender 1-0 win over Everton, courtesy of a Jorginho penalty. Edouard Mendy pulled in a splendid shift in between the stick to help his side to a clean sheet and a win.
Spurs manager, Antonio Conte, would have a point to prove to his former employees, after having been at the receiving end of three defeats against the Blues last season.
With both sides expected to go in with a similar formation (three at the back), expect a cagey affair that might be defined by a moment of genius from the attackers of either side.
SPURS – Lloris | Romero, Davies, Dier | Perisic, Royal, Hojberg, Bentacur | Son, Kulusevski, Kane
CHELSEA – Mendy | Koulibaly, Silva, Azpilicueta | James, Jorginho, Kante, Cucurella | Mount, Havertz, Sterling
