Dele Alli: 'Chelsea match huge for Tottenham Hotspur'

It was surprising that he started on the bench and many believe this was Conte's way of playing mind games with the owners in order for them to splash the cash before the transfer window shuts on the 31st of this month. "For sure, this moment is not simple, not easy, but we must be strong to face this". But it was not until Spurs grew into the game that they took the lead, Alonso pasting a brilliant free-kick past Hugo Lloris from 25 yards. To arrive and try to fight for the Champions League, to fight to be the best in the world, you need time. "You know very well there are situations that you can't control". I think this will also be a high scoring game so both teams to score is something I like to bet on.

"But I feel always, all the years when I have been in pre-season, "probably this year I work with Antonio". Last season we started to build this foundation and we won, so it means we built something.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Inter are interested in Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, according to a report by Duncan Castles in The Sunday Times. Having impressed in the win over Newcastle, expect Kyle Walker-Peters to keep a spot in the starting XI. "Morata can stay in this club for many years to become a fantastic striker for this club".

"Morata is a young player", he added. When you don't play regularly you sometimes lose your performance, sometimes your quality in your physical condition. "But there's no hiding how big Sunday's match is to all of us".

Chelsea, for one, will be able to call upon the services of Álvaro Morata. My choices don't depend on money.

Tottenham haven't lost a Premier League London derby at home under Mauricio Pochettino (W9 D4 L0). "The most important thing is to have the confidence of the coach, the club, the team-mates". A new partner for N'Golo Kante is something Conte wants to encourage.

Fabregas and Cahill are suspended but Victor Moses returns from his ban so he should be recalled in the right wing-back role with Cesar Azpilicueta moving back in to defence. Despite this, Conte says the Blues must have no excuses and give 150% to solve the difficulties the team now face. When pushed on whether four years would be long enough, he replied: "Yeah, maybe".

However, that does open the door for some new blood in the Chelsea squad.
