Thursday's intriguing Premier League London derby pits a Chelsea side who completed a tremendous turnaround at the weekend host our team who fell just short of pulling off a similar achievement. While Poch - gearing up for another Lilywhites reunion - witnessed his crop fought back brilliantly against Villa, we were made to pay for a shoddy first half in an excruciating 3-2 North London Derby defeat to Arsenal.

Chelsea's penchant for goal-laden games at home and our engrossing defeat versus Arsenal certainly gives rise to an all-action affair on Thursday, where we men have some derby day wrongs to right after failing in our bid to quell the title-chasing Gunners juggernaut.

Curiously, we arguably performed better in the half that we conceded three goals to the 45 minutes where we netted twice, but even though calamities from Raya and Rice gifted us a late route back into the game, goal number three eluded us as we fell to back-to-back defeats.

While Postecoglou also had a few choice words about the officiating, the Australian could not argue that set-pieces were our undoing once again, and no sooner was our top-four fate back in our own hands to being out of our control; we sit seven points below Villa with two games to make up.

Also licking the wounds from our humbling 4-0 thrashing at Newcastle United, we can only boast a mere two wins from our last 10 Premier League away matches and have just one goal to show from our last three on the road, while letting eight in at the other end of the field.


From the 52 goals that we have conceded this term, four came in November's painful home loss to Chelsea - where Postecoglou insisted on the high line with our side down to nine - and we have only prevailed in one of our last 33 matches at Stamford Bridge, where now-Blues boss Pochettino masterminded a 3-1 success almost exactly six years ago.

Team News

Our RB Leipzig loanee Timo Werner sustained a hamstring issue early on in the defeat to Arsenal and will surely miss out on a reunion with his former employers this week.

Werner joins the long-term quartet of Udogie (thigh), Forster (ankle), Sessegnon (thigh) and Solomon (knee) on our absentee list, but Skipp might battle back from a small knock in time to make the squad.

Skipp will not be the first port of call for any midfield changes, though - that honour belongs to Sarr and Bissouma - while Johnson and Richarlison will scrap it out for the right to replace the stricken Werner in attack.
