Going into last weekend’s round of Premier League fixtures there was just one team left with a perfect record: Tottenham. The North London side had had an excellent start to life under Nuno Espirito Santo, winning their three opening Premier League games 1-0, including a victory over Manchester City, and had secured their spot in the Europa Conference League group stage with a play-off round win over Pacos de Ferreira. However, Tottenham haven’t had the best of times since the return from the international break. Their perfect start to the season came to an abrupt end in a London derby away to Crystal Palace in a 3-0 defeat which also saw Japhet Tangana sent off, before opening their Europa Conference League group stage campaign with a 2-2 draw against Rennes.
Chelsea, meanwhile, remain unbeaten after six games across all competitions and currently sit second in the Premier League, only behind Manchester United on goals scored. The Blues have been formidable under Thomas Tuchel and started the new campaign with a penalty shootout victory over Villarreal to win the Uefa Super Cup before opening the Premier League by beating Crystal Palace 3-0. A London derby victory over Arsenal followed and another tough game against Liverpool ended in a 1-1 draw in which Chelsea played 45 minutes with 10 men. Chelsea returned from the international break with another big win, beating Aston Villa 3-0, and in midweek they kicked off their Champions League defence with a 1-0 win over Zenit.
Tottenham vs Chelsea: Match Stats
Sunday’s game will be all about the two main strikers for these sides, with Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku going head-to-head for the first time this season. Lukaku was one of summer’s biggest signings and he has made a perfect return to Chelsea, scoring four goals in four games across all competitions including the only goal in midweek against Zenit. Kane, on the other hand, was tipped to move to Manchester City but remained and has scored two goals in five matches for Tottenham, with both coming in Europa Conference League qualifying – though it’s only a matter of time before he gets up and running in the Premier League again.
Although they were beaten last week, Tottenham have started the new Premier League campaign with two wins from two games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, slowly making their new home a fortress. The North London side have now won eight of their last 10 league games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium including that opening weekend victory over Man City.
