Chelsea will lock horns with Spurs as the London Derby sets to kick off in hours
The Blues look to extend their unbeaten streak in the new Premier League season after coming off a 3-0 victory against Aston Villa last weekend.
Chelsea went on to advance their victory when they faced Zenith Saint Petersburg for the first time on Tuesday and came off with a 1-0 victory as Lukaku extended his goal tally.
The Belgian is sure up to contest for the player with most goals and Antonio Michail’s suspension against United today provides him the edge to close the gap against the West Ham striker who sits at the top with 4 goals.
Cristiano Ronaldo is another name strongly chasing after this milestone after netting 2 goals in his 1 game for United since making the epic return to Old Trafford.
Tottenham on the other hand are in hunger to materialize a victory as it would mark the third time they have completed three consecutive victories in opening games with the last two coming back in 2001 and 2002.
Spurs won their first two games against Crystal Palace and Watford and holding up against Chelsea would see the history of the Blues not winning 6 away derbies in a row still alive.
Although this task won’t be an easy one for Nuno following Chelsea’s boost amid seeing N’Golo Kante returning to the selection.
