Chelsea play host to Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, as two of the most in-form sides in the Premier League go head to head.

Former Chelsea star Joe Cole is looking forward to this clash, and he has admitted that he’s feeling nervous about the game.

Joe Cole fears that Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has turned Spurs into a very strong side this season and is worried that they might carry the day.

“I’m nervous,” Cole said on Coral and JOE Media’s All to Play For podcast.

“There seems to be something tangible changing at Tottenham.

“They look like a team that’s got a little bit of strength of character now. The manager would’ve implemented that no doubt.

“He’s cracked the whip, signings have been good, he’s got everyone on board.

“That little touch he done with [Sergio] Reguilon where he said to him, ‘if you stop [Riyad] Mahrez dribbling past you I’ll buy you a leg of ham’, little things like that.”
