Good afternoon and welcome along to football.london’s live coverage of the crunch Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.
Two bitter rivals face off in north London this afternoon with Thomas Tuchel’s side looking to continue their unbeaten start to the 2021/22 season while for Spurs, they need to bounce back from the 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace last time out in the top flight.
Only one point separates the two sides in the table after four matches apiece.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have a bit of a defensive crisis on their hands heading into the game. Eric Dier is expected to miss out for the home side but Davinson Sanchez and Cristian Romero, who have both been in Croatia in quarantine following the farcical scenes in South America during the international break, are likely to be thrown into action just 48 hours after arriving back in England.
For Chelsea, their injury list extends to just Christian Pulisic with the USMNT star ruled out this weekend. N’Golo Kante is set for a return to the side having missed the last couple of games through injury.
We will bring you all the very latest from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the build-up, match action and post-match reaction from both managers.
The game kicks off at 4.30pm so stick with us throughout the rest of the day for all the very latest news from the London derby.
