Chelsea and Tottenham will be in for a tough battle this evening, and Chelsea midfielder has revealed that the team has forgotten about the game against Manchester United and are now focused on Spurs.

He revealed that Tottenham are going to be aggressive and physical, but the team will be ready for that.

He told the official Chelsea website: “Every game is different but we know they are going to be aggressive. They have many good players and we have to be ready for that. We have trained well this week and I am sure we will be.

“We have already forgotten last Sunday’s game. That’s important because a new game brings new challenges and that’s what we have to focus on. It’s the same when we win.

“We know we will have to play better than last weekend and I think we will. I am feeling good and the atmosphere at Cobham has been good. We’re ready.”

The two sides have defeated each other this season and Matic believes Spurs are the most difficult team to play in the Premier League this season.

He said: “They’re very good, for me maybe the strongest in the Premier League from the opponents we have faced this season.

“They are hard to play against because they are strong physically and they can also play with the ball. So we must be ready for that, to stop them and to play our game.”
