Chelsea host Tottenham on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, and it’s a game that hold many bad memories for Spurs fans.
Spurs have not won at Stamford Bridge in the league for 26 years, since Gary Lineker’s winner in 1990, and last season they blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 in the heated “Battle of the Bridge,” which confirmed Leicester City as champions.
Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino has said he’d use the record as a motivation to fire up his players for the game.
When reminded of Spurs’ record at Chelsea, Pochettino told a news conference: “It must be a motivation for us, it must be a very good challenge. It’s a big motivation for me personally and must be for the players too.”
