Chelsea would play Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday in our second Premier League game of the season and Chelsea legend, Pat Nevin, has urged the Blues to stop Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen to have a chance of winning Spurs.
“There is still time and players will slowly return from their various injuries and suspensions, but will we have enough to face Spurs at Wembley? This is the question that will be exercising all of us this week,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.
“I was at their game against Newcastle and they were flattered by the 2-0 scoreline. They were the better team but, like our match the day before, the entire afternoon was changed by a sending off, this time of The Toon’s Jonjo Shelvey.
“Other than that, this is a Spurs team that currently has less dynamism in the full-back areas and not all the top names are firing on all cylinders yet. As ever, stop Christian Eriksen and there is every chance we can get off the mark at Wembley.”
