The Blues are currently in the 7th position and have collected four points in the two matches under their new coach. However, a win would take any of them to 5th place!
The Lilywhites have played a match less as compared to their London rivals. However, Jose Mourinho isn’t happy with his side losing two matches in a row as his side is currently placed at 6th place.
Tottenham vs Chelsea : Preview
Spurs are going through a difficult phase after conceding four goals and scoring just one in their last two Premier League matches.
However, Jose Mourinho has earned success over their local rivals in the EFL Cup. But, it would be interesting to see whether he could force a single shot on target against the reborn Chelsea!
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has allowed only very few chances for the opponents they have faced till now. In the last match against Burnley, he allowed the visiting side force one and only shot ( and that was off target! ).
The return of derby hero Marcos Alonso would be a big boost for the Pensioners as the team looks like the one under Antonio Conte.
Out of 168 matches between the teams, Chelsea won 72 as compared to 55 matches won by the Spurs. However, the rest 41 matches ended as draw.
