Last season’s fixture between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge was one filled with animosity. Spurs players were aggressive in that game and were ready for a bust up at any point.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has vowed that it wouldn’t happen this time around.

Speaking ahead of the game, the Tottenham manager said: “That’s in the past. From our side, all is forgotten,”

“That was a completely different period last season, for different reasons. We arrived in a moment that was difficult to manage — the emotion, that was normal, we are human.

“The start to the game — 2-0 to us, the first 45 minutes — was perfect. They came back, got two goals we lost a little bit our heads, that’s normal in football. All is different, we need to go there and believe we can win. They are in very good form. We need to try to play better than them, to try to win the game.” He said.

Hopefully, they keep their promise when they get beaten.
