Nuno Espirito Santo’s side welcome Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium aiming to bounce back from last weekend’s dismal display away at Crystal Palace
Tottenham Hotspur are aiming to end Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season after their own positive start was brought to a sudden halt after a disastrous display away at Crystal Palace last weekend.
Nuno Espirito Santo tasted defeat for the first time as Spurs manager at Selhurst Park after goals from Wilfried Zaha and a brace courtesy of debutant Odsonne Edouard were enough to resign Tottenham to a 3-0 loss, their first of the campaign thus far.
Just hours later, Chelsea continued their stellar start to proceedings with a comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Aston Villa, marquee summer signing Romelu Lukaku notching twice as he continues to show he was worth every penny of the £97m the Blues paid to bring him back to the club.
What time is Tottenham vs Chelsea?
The match will kick-off at 4:30pm, on Sunday 19 September at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
The last time these two sides met Thomas Tuchel had just arrived as Chelsea boss, the German guiding the Blues to a 1-0 away win over what was then Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur.
Chelsea have not been beaten by Spurs in the league since November 2018, when goals from Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min were enough to comfortably dispatch of Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea side.

What’s the team news?
Where will Spurs and Chelsea finish this season? Have your say here.
Tottenham are hoping to be boosted by the return of Son, who missed the trip to Selhurst Park last Saturday after sitting out the 3-0 defeat with illness.
Given the manner in which Spurs were brushed aside by Palace, Santo is expected to make a number of changes to his starting eleven.
He will have to do so without the luxury of having a number of first-team regulars to call upon, as Steven Bergwijn, Eric Dier, Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez are all doubts while Japhet Tanganga will serve the first of his three-game suspension.
The injury list for Chelsea makes for much better reading if you are a Blues fan, as Tuchel’s side is almost full fit, the only expected absentee is N’Golo Kante.
The Frenchman is set to miss out on the trip to Tottenham as he continues to recover from the knock he sustained against Liverpool.
