Tottenham Hotspur play host to hated rival Chelsea today at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It’s always a match that really doesn’t need an introduction, especially in recent years.
Spurs will be without Antonio Conte again as he recovers, but so far the squad hasn’t missed a beat under Christian Stellini. He’s six for six in matches covering for Conte as a replacement and lucky number seven would mean beating down a Chelsea side that have experienced a lot of issues since Graham Potter took over. Of course, it won’t be easy: Chelsea are getting N’Golo Kante back for this match, because why wouldn’t he get fully fit right before playing Spurs?
Fourth place is very much up for grabs, and with Newcastle showing some cracks in their armor as of late, even though they’re playing for the League Cup today, three points today would be a huge boost in the race for Champions League football.

Match thread rules
The match thread rules are the same as always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you’re here, though, we have a few rules and regulations:
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They’re bad and they get us in trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. Don’t knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you’re frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, transphobic, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
