For Chelsea, we have a trip to White Hart Lane tomorrow, a difficult ground and a difficult game as well.
Last season’s 2-2 draw against Spurs last season was a classic, and Chelsea legend Pat Nevin, is expecting a similar game, as both teams are even fighting for the title this time.
He wrote in his column for the official Chelsea website: “There has always been a special atmosphere when Chelsea meet Spurs. The final game last season was extra mad, and if you add the spice of both sides seriously contending for the title this time it simply can’t fail to serve of something spicy. Also to consider is that just like the 2-2 game, it is an evening kick-off and that always adds to the atmosphere of the occasion. As the final little addition, Spurs cannot afford to lose this game and even a draw is a pretty awful result for them as they will remain 10 points behind Chelsea. They have to go for it.
With all the rest of the games already played, everyone’s attention will be at White Hart Lane and maybe the final thing to add is that with the volume of games in such close proximity, there will be some tired players out there too.”
