50 years of rivalry

Spurs v Chelsea will take place at the  Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, creating an intense atmosphere for a challenging Premier League season. 

The two London teams went head-to-head in the 1967 FA Cup Final, otherwise know as the “Cockney Cup Final” at Wembley Stadium, the first-ever feature between the rivals. Spurs dominated the match 2-0 due to top-scoring players Jimmy Greaves and Terry Venables, making Chelsea hit rock bottom. The 90s saw the rise of Chelsea through the honours of two FA Cups and a League Cup for their collection. Chelsea then dominated the early 2000s: Tottenham Hotspur did not defeat the Blues at Stamford Bridge between 1991 to 2018!

This fixture is poised to be an excellent occasion for both supporters who will support their respective teams through and through. Spurs v Chelsea is always an entertaining matchup for neutrals up and down the country too! 

Spurs vs Chelsea: The last time they met in the league

Spurs will be looking to redeem themselves from a disappointing matchday as Chelsea saw a victory in their away game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last season. Jorginho’s penalty allowed the Blues to take home a derby win.

Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 thanks to Jorginho’s first-half penalty, continuing their undefeated league run under Thomas Tuchel, which is still in place today. With the Blues playing to win, Chelsea commanded the game before half-time as Jorginho, at the 24th minute, shot Chelsea ahead after Timo Werner drew a foul from Eric Dier. After halftime, the Blues continued to dominate the Lilywhites, with Callum Hudson-Odoi shooting wide, Marcos Alonso volleying over, and Hugo Lloris executing a brilliant save from a ferocious Mason Mount’s strike to keep the scoreline down.

Spurs fought back in the closing stages as Carlos Vinicius headed a well-timed cross from Serge Aurier wide. However, this small victory fell short of a celebration as Dier, unfortunately, misinterpreted his target by missing his free-kick, resulting in a third consecutive defeat for Spurs. Jose Mourinho, previous head coach for Spurs, reassured fans that Spurs were the “best team” during the second half of the game, believing that Spurs “deserved better” than they got.

Despite last year’s loss, Tottenham Hotspur fans can look forward to the upcoming Premier League fixture as the Lilywhites are gunning for a home victory for this Premier League campaign. With Nuno Santo now taking Spurs reigns and promising that they will “try to find better solutions”, it is expected to be a comeback to remember for Tottenham Hotspur FC.

Pre-season friendly for The Mind Series

There is no denying that The Mind Series, a mini tournament, was crucial for both Premier League clubs as it would give the young lads a chance to play, try new formations and prepare themselves before the season starts. Before, it would have been expected for Chelsea to boast about their Championship League trophy to fans in front of the Lilywhites; however, this was a friendly. 

Stamford Bridge saw a 2-2 draw in front of over 20,000 football fans and supporters. While the home side impressed many during the early proceeding of the pre-season friendly, Pierluigi Gollini made some great saves on his debut for Tottenham Hotspur, showcasing authority, when Lucas Mura pulled it back to a 2-1. However, Spurs player Steven Bergwijin scored an equalizer at 70 minutes.

Nuno Santo reflected on the comeback through his statement of Spurs demonstrating “determination”, “belief”, and “hard work”. With the pre-season friendly preparing Nuno Santo’s side for the upcoming Spurs fixtures, the Premier League season is sure to be entertaining.
