EPL: Can Tottenham ends Chelsea’s unbeaten run?

The stage is set up perfectly for two London giants to come across each other in GW5 of the Premier League. Tottenham Hotspurs will host Chelsea for the next week’s Premier League fixture, in what is expected to be a thriller of a contest.
Tomas Tuchel’s unbeaten Chelsea will strive for a dominating win over the Spurs, to confirm their supremacy in the league. An injury-laden suspended Tottenham will hope to keep their head up high in front of the home crowd. The match is scheduled to be played at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium on Sunday, September 19th.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s “honeymoon” period at Spurs got over when his side played Crystal Palace away in Premier League GW 4. Palace clinched their maiden win of the Premier League season against the 10-man Spurs.
Nuno Santo had the perfect start to his Spurs’ career, similar to that of Jose Mourinho, with three back-to-back wins in the first 3 league encounters. However, having won all of their games unconvincingly, it was easier to guess their forthcoming breakdown.
Their next outing against the European Champions Chelsea will hand Nuno Espirito a reality check about where his team stands in the English top-tier competition. Spurs still stand a chance if Son, who has been their best player this season, returns from his injury and skipper Harry Kane manager to find his golden touch back
Thomas Tuchel had the same instant impact on Chelsea what Bruno Fernandes had on Man United since the time he joined the club, however, the German has actually won something with the Blues as the Portuguese still awaits.
Roman Abramovich’s desire to win and his adrenaline rush after bagging the Champions League has motivated Chelsea to just become stronger this season. With signings like Romelu Lukaku (3 goals in 3 games) and Saul, the Blues of London have clearly modified their already well-built squad.
Chelsea are unbeaten in the league so far, with 3 wins and a draw in 4 PL contests. Chelsea won 3-0 in their last PL encounter against Aston Villa. Tuchel is expected to rotate his squad with a Champions League draw in the mid-week.
However, it will be safe to say that Chelsea’s first preference this season will be a Premier League trophy and the upcoming game against Spurs is a crucial one.
Probable Lineup
Chelsea Predicted XI: Mendy; Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Kovacic, Saul, Alonso (c); Ziyech, Lukaku, Havertz
