PREVIEW OF CHELSEA VS TOTTENHAM AND TEAM NEWS
So much has happened between the two teams this season, as they’ve already played three times and tonight’s game will be their fourth. The Blues have already won all three meetings this season, which have been played under two different managers for Spurs.
Chelsea Vs Tottenham Matchday Preview: The last time they played at the Blues’ home ground this season, they won 2-0 in the Emirates FA Cup semi-final, with the second leg ending in a 3-0 aggregate against Spurs, who were unable to make anything happen in both encounters, resulting in their elimination.
INJURY UPDATE FOR CHELSEA VS TOTTENHAM
The Blues were bolstered by the return to training of two players, Reece James and Trevoh Chalobah, who had been sidelined due to injury.
Here’s what Tuchel had to say:
“We have a timeframe for Reece’s return, but we won’t make it public since we’ll be bombarded with questions about it.”
“He’s back on the pitch, which is great news, but he’s still in individual training and won’t be in the team for Sunday.”
“Trevoh Chalobah is back in team training, but it’s simply too early to play at this level on Sunday.” So no one is returning; the squad remains the same.
“We decided to give them two days off to give them a chance to unplug a little bit, but two days won’t solve everything.”
“It was nice to have, and after the Tottenham game, we’ll be able to give the majority of the players additional days off, which we need need.
“But, because it’s a major match, we need to be in a different mindset, have a different attitude, and be in top shape on Sunday.’
