Chelsea are about to put the Super into Sunday with a top of the table clash against Spurs at Stamford Bridge, the winner of which will surely be crowned the early-season title favorite.
Both teams come into the game in great form. Chelsea have won six on the bounce and are unbeaten in thirteen. Spurs have won five in a row, and 13 of their last 16. We all know how Mourinho’s teams can become practically unstoppable once they get on a roll, so it’s up to us to stop that right now.
Fortunately, Chelsea do have pretty much a fully fit squad. Christian Pulisic is the only question mark, though Lampard had been expecting him to return for this one. Pulisic got in some extra training while the rest of the team were off in France, so hopefully he is indeed able to come back.
With the congested schedule and pressure games at every turn, we’re going to need him, and all the rest as well.
