Spurs Star's Recovery Before Chelsea Game Makes Mauricio Pochettino "So Happy"

The Blues had two men sent off in a humbling 3-2 defeat at Burnley.

"I think that Spurs started to work with Pochettino for three years, this is the fourth year and Pochettino has had the possibility to work for three years with the same players and have the possibility every season to improve his foundations", he added.

"It is true that last week they had a problem but in football always the next game will be different and complicated and tough".

Kane is proving to be one of the best strikers in the world with Conte a big admirer of the England global.

While they face a sterner test against defending champions Chelsea, they will take heart from the fact that they are playing at home this time round. They'd have been a long way down the list.

You only have to look at their last encounter there, the 4-2 FA Cup defeat to Chelsea.

With the Premier League now under way and turning 25 this week, the last 25 years has seen the average United Kingdom house price increase by 302 per cent to £220,713.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte will manage his 50th game in all competitions with Chelsea. The Italian manager does not seem impressed with the club's transfer business this summer.

"It's a discussion we need to have internally and then decide, because I think the vote will be secret". However Mourinho insists last season's triumph should mean his former club are favourites to retain their crown.

Chelsea came back to win 2-1 in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge in November. They must turn the stadium into the fortress White Hart Lane was last season.

HAD Tottenham been able to pick the first guests through the doors of their new Wembley home, reigning Premier League champions Chelsea would not have been first choice.

Pochettino may have Kieran Trippier available for Sunday's match against Chelsea as the right-back completes his recovery from an ankle injury. Erik Lamela and Georges N'Koudou are also sidelined and will miss the game.

Conte is faced with a host of selection problems after Chelsea sustained two red cards versus Burnley. Diego Costa is still out in Brazil. He also ruled out Pedro Rodriguez, Eden Hazard and Timeou Bakayoko from the game.

Even though we're only in the second week of a new season, there are so many storylines already emerging going into this game, the biggest of which is likely to be what impact the move to Wembley will have on Spurs. While they failed to keep a single clean sheet at the national stadium in their five outings in 2016/17. He hit the post against Newcastle last week and looked sharp, despite not finding the back of the net.

Harry Kane has scored four goals in eight games against Chelsea in all competitions. This scoreline can get you best odds of 17/2 at Bet365. He believes Tottenham will "get off to an ideal start at Wembley".
