Thomas Tuchel has taken charge of Chelsea for two games now, and it has ended in a win and a draw for the new manager.

Facing Tottenham will be Tuchel’s biggest test so far, and Mark Lawrenson has predicted a 1-1 draw for this game.

BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson doesn’t think Tottenham can survive without Harry Kane, and isn’t convinced by the loan signing from Real Madrid, Gareth Bale.

Mark Lawrenson told BBC Sport: “This is Thomas Tuchel’s biggest test so far as Chelsea manager, even with Tottenham on a poor run of form.

“It seems to be the same old story with Spurs – Harry Kane gets injured, and they are not the same team without him.

“Gareth Bale’s arrival last September was meant to help change that, but he looks a shadow of his former self.

“Bale has lost that zip which was his trademark and when I watch him play, it doesn’t really seem like he is enjoying it.”
