Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea - Wounded champions provide first Wembley test for Spurs

What's worse - at least for Chelsea - they looked positively rattled against Burnley last Saturday.

Tottenham brought in a new centre-back last week with the record signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax for £38.4m.

Instead, the Argentine coach is fixated more on "big" trophies such as the Premier League, and admits he would be desperately disappointed if his time in charge of Spurs ended without winning one.

I think they'll come to Wembley and sit in and rely on the counter-attack, with Pedro and Willian's pace, and make it a frustrating day for Spurs, adding to the whole Wembley issue.

Chelsea had a shock loss in their first game of the season and that game also resulted in the Blues missing Gary Gahill and Cesc Fabrigas for this game.

Tottenham play their first home Premier League game at the stadium where they lost three times in five appearances last season. That means both clubs will be going absolutely all-out, and the high stakes means that we should get an excellent match from two top-shelf clubs.

And, ahead of Saturday's trip to Swansea, Mourinho suggested Chelsea remain title favourites.

Peter Bosz: "There is no unrest at Borussia Dortmund"
Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Bosz hailed the "special" Mario Gotze after the midfielder made his competitive return on Saturday. Pulisic could be in for more exposure for Dortmund if Ousmane Dembele departs the squad.

The Spaniard earned Chelsea the lead with two minutes to go at the Northwest London venue, having opened the scoring in the first half with a powerful free kick. He joined them in 1991, the year after they moved into the Stadio delle Alpi, an unloved and unatmospheric home that had been built for the World Cup in 1990 and was passed on for Juve and Torino to share.

Spurs have ticked all boxes in pre-season and also started well on the road.

"I think we need time". "Why not? I hope because this could be a fantastic challenge for me and also for the club, to stay together and also to play with this team in a new stadium".

Aside from laughing off questions regarding the ongoing Diego Costa saga, Antonio Conte made the usual calls for focus and work from his team in order to get this season back on track.

Fabregas and Cahill are suspended but Victor Moses returns from his ban so he should be recalled in the right wing-back role with Cesar Azpilicueta moving back in to defence.

Instead, Alonso scored again on 87 minutes to seal a 2-1 victory for Chelsea, leaving Tottenham with one win in 11 at Wembley and four straight defeats to their London rivals at their temporary home.
