Tottenham vs. Chelsea: Highlights and recap

Tottenham finished last season in impressive way and the Spurs picked up where they've left of.

A new defender is expected to join Tottenham's ranks in the coming days, with a deal reportedly agreed with Ajax for defender Davinson Sanchez.

However, their meeting will also mark Spurs's first "home" Premier League game at Wembley, where they will play during White Hart Lane's renovation.

Mauricio Pochettino revealed this week his desire to win a "real trophy" with Spurs - and what better way to banish that Wembley curse and prove his intention realistic by dispatching the visiting domestic champions on Sunday.

Chelsea had a shock loss in their first game of the season and that game also resulted in the Blues missing Gary Gahill and Cesc Fabrigas for this game.

I'm not sure why Mauricio Pochettino played Moussa Sissoko against Newcastle but if Heung-Min Son does come in then I think Spurs can stretch Chelsea's defence and get a hard-earned win, potentially with Son getting a late victor as the game opens up a bit more.

Pochettino revealed Morata rejected the chance to join Spurs two years ago for fear of competing with Kane and a week after Conte signed the Spain worldwide, he described Kane as his ideal striker.

Levy could be reluctant to sell to a Premier League rival, if indeed Alderweireld is set for an exit before the close of the transfer window.

These two sides last met at Wembley.

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

The start of the 2017-18 house party was not great last weekend.

After what happened to Chelsea last week, I'm struggling to work out what team Antonio Conte will put out.

"You are probably even stronger, so I think every top team in the Premier League is strong enough, with potential is strong enough with the financial situation to be fighting for everything".

Losing Fàbregas to suspension might appear bad - until you realize that he didn't start against Tottenham in three matches last season, and was unlikely to do so here if Bakayoko is indeed fit.
