London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing the continuation of their respective perfect records this season ahead of their meeting at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Chelsea play hosts to Spurs in what’s their first home game of the new Premier League season. The upcoming London Derby is the star game of week two matches being played in the Premier League this weekend.
On their part, Chelsea also recorded a win in their first game of the new season but they were not as emphatic as Spurs. The Blues needed a penalty from Italian midfielder Jorginho at the end of the first half to take all three points in their game at the home of Everton. Frenchman AbdoulayeDoucoure was penalised for a foul on Ben Chilwell in the box and Jorginho tucked away the spot kick for the only goal of the game. The successful spot kick from Jorginho gave Chelsea a 1-0 away win over Everton.
Spurs have a recent poor record against Chelsea after losing all their four meetings in all competitions last season.
