After a rare bit of extra rest — four whole days between games! — Chelsea make the short trek up to Tottenham to take on Spurs in a Super Sunday sundown showdown. Chelsea are unbeaten and almost top of the league (only behind Manchester United on goals scored). Spurs are almost unbeaten as well, and only behind by one point, though their last league game was a bit of a shocker, as they were thoroughly outplayed by Conor Gallagher’s Crystal Palace, who won easily, 3-0.
Spurs have been dealing with injuries and quarantines, but they will certainly be up for this derby regardless of form or feeling or fitness. We’ve won two out of two in the league at New Three Point Lane, but we’ll need to be at our best (or at least most clinical, again) to make it three out of three.
Helping to deal with Spurs’ threat should be the return of N’Golo Kanté, expected to be back after spending the last three weeks recovering from his ankle injury — hopefully for good this time. Christian Pulisic remains out, but is our only injury concern at the moment.
