Premier League preview: Tottenham primed for Chelsea showdown

Tottenham Hotspur are set for another test of their Premier League title credentials when they host Chelsea in an all-London affair in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Spurs have won eight and drawn two of their first 10 league games under manager Ange Postecoglou and will put their unbeaten record on the line against former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Pochettino return adds extra spice

Having been beloved during his time at Tottenham, Pochettino is set to return to north London the villain following his switch to rivals Chelsea.

Pochettino helped guide Spurs to the Champions League final in 2019 only to fall short against Liverpool in the showpiece event.

The Argentine saw his time at Tottenham come to a disappointing end, before having a spell at Paris Saint-German and a return to the Premier League with Chelsea.

Pochettino will come up against a new Spurs manager in Postecoglou who is already capturing the hearts and minds of the supporters after a positive start to his time in England.

The Australian tactician has been keen to keep his troops grounded after their positive start to the season but there is growing hype about what this Spurs side might be able to achieve this season.

Tuesday provides another good test to see if Postecoglou’s team are in fact the real deal and they are 2.00 to see off Chelsea in North London.   

Arsenal set for Toon test

In the other standout game on the weekend, Tottenham’s rivals Arsenal are in action on Sunday when they make the trip to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United.

The Gunners have a good record at Newcastle, winning four of their last meetings with the Magpies on their own patch.

Along with Postecoglou’s Spurs, Arsenal are the only side that are still unbeaten at this stage of the competition and they face their own acid test against an improving Newcastle side.

The Magpies go into this game on a high after a 3-0 win at Manchester United in the EFL Cup and next they will be looking to take down the Gunners.

Arsenal are 2.60 for the win on the road, with Newcastle at 2.80 for the victory. The draw at St James’ Park is available at 3.20.

City can put Cherries to the sword

Reigning champions Manchester City are also in action on Sunday as they welcome strugglers Bournemouth to the Etihad Stadium.

This match could be one of the most one-sided encounters of the weekend, as City have scored four goals in each of their last two games against the Cherries.

With the likes of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez in attack, City are 1.83 to score over 3.5 goals against Bournemouth once again.
