Chelsea have won their last 13 league games and only conceded four goals in the process. Next up, the Blues will face Tottenham at White Hart Lane. Can Spurs stop Antonio Conte’s men?
The two sides collided back in November 2016 and Chelsea bounced back from a goal down to beat the North Londoners 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.
At White Hart Lane, Spurs hold stronger cards and they are in great form as well. Yesterday, Pochettino’s men dismantled Watford in their own backyard and have won their last four league games. Still, Chelsea have what it takes to thrash Tottenham.
As far as Chelsea’s team news is concerned, Pedro is available for selection again after missing the last game due to suspension.
The Spaniard scored a brace against Bournemouth but he might find himself on the bench vs Spurs because Willian stepped up in his absence against Stoke and scored two goals.
Chelsea conceded two goals against the Potters and Conte will look to provide more cover to his back line by bringing back Nemanja Matic into the starting XI. The Serbian international will probably replace Cesc in the lineup.
Here is Chelsea’s strongest possible 3-4-3 XI vs Spurs.
