A long-awaited Tottenham Hotspur homecoming is pencilled in for Poch on Monday evening, as the Argentine's Chelsea side travel across the capital to face us in this block buster Premier League affair. We maintained our first placed position by seeing off Crystal Palace 2-1 two Fridays ago, while Chelsea overcame Blackburn Rovers 2-0 in midweek to reach the EFL Cup quarter-finals.

Spurs
Taking on a's defensively-sound Crystal Palace under the bright lights of Selhurst Park often proves a troublesome occasion for many a team, and we could not unlock the Eagles' backline throughout the entirety of the first 45 minutes, but an unfortunate Joel Ward own goal set the wheels in motion before Son increased our.lead

Jordan Ayew's last-gasp volley proved nothing more than a consolation - albeit a stunning consolation - as Postecoglou achieved a feat that none of his Premier League managerial predecessors managed, taking 26 points from his first 10 games in the competition.

While we are 1 point behind Man City who are top (At the time of writing this), a victory for Liverpool over the weekend could bump us down to 3rd spot by Monday, where Postecoglou will seek to become just the third Premier League head coach to traverse his first 11 games unbeaten after Frank Clarke and Maurizio Sarri.

Scoring twice in each of our four home victories this season while also conceding a mere two goals along the way, we will also endeavour to string together a five-game winning run in the Premier League for the first time since December 2018. As long as we do not lose this game, we will be the only unbeaten side in the EPL this season, and a win will put us back on top!


Chelsea
Pochettino's departure from us certainly be described as bittersweet - a poor run of results saw Levy pull the trigger only months after the Argentine collected a Champions League runners-up medal - but his Lilywhites homecoming should only be warmly welcomed by all present.

Chelsea's recent meetings with London foes have left a lot to be desired, though, as after throwing away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with comeback kings Arsenal, the Blues were left to rue 90 minutes of profligacy against West London neighbours Brentford, who struck twice on the counter through Ethan Pinnock and Bryan Mbeumo to make it three Stamford Bridge wins on the bounce.

With their mini-revival being stopped in its tracks, 11th-placed Chelsea - who may also be demoted lower in the coming hours - cannot escape the doldrums of mid-table mediocrity, but some pride was restored with a last-16 EFL Cup success over Blackburn, who succumbed to Benoit Badiashile’s side-footed finish and a sublime Raheem Sterling curler.


As the Blues' Stamford Bridge woes continue, the Chelsea faithful can take comfort in the fact that their side have taken seven points from their last three top-flight fixtures on the road, albeit against a trio of bottom-half teams in Fulham, Bournemouth and newly-promoted Burnley.
