Master meets apprentice this weekend in the Premier League action in a mouth-watering London Derby. Chelsea welcomes their London rivals Tottenham to Stamford Bridge. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 7:30 pm.
The London Derby has presented some fond memories over time. Sunday’s clash proves to be nothing less of thrilling and high energy from start to finish. Both sides are currently on a high form, with the top spot up for grabs.
It is a sentimental moment for Chelsea’s owner, Roman Abromohivic, marking his 1000th match in charge as the owner. It is an incredible showdown between two legends who guaranteed the side’s success go head to head. No English club has won more major trophies since Abramohivic took over, with Mourinho filling half the titles while Lampard played 13 of the 16 major wins.
Liverpool’s injury crises added to Manchester City’s out of form have opened up the league for newcomers to take over. Tottenham has had a chance of the top spot feeling for two weeks, but this week could see a Blue face take over. Chelsea is only two points behind them and two spots further down.
There are plenty of reasons for Tottenham supporters to start dreaming early with a win at Stamford Bridge could see the side seal a better start to the Premier League season.
