Chelsea set to silence critics with huge transfer move

1:33 | Soccer         English Premier League Manchester City to Benefit Most From League's Wild Spending Spree

Playing against Chelsea may help, he says, as the atmosphere will be electric for the London derby and that makes it the "perfect game" for Spurs to get over their homesickness.

The Portuguese piled the pressure on his former employers by reasserting their status as Premier League title favourites as Conte prepares for Sunday's trip to Tottenham.

Conte will like his direct, pacy running as he looks to provide more supply to new striker Alvaro Morata - and Arsenal may just feel like cashing in rather than potentially losing their man for nothing next summer, although they will be reluctant to sell to a Premier League competitor.

So much of the build-up to this game has been about last season's champions trying to avoid a proper crisis, but the flipside is that it could be such an opportunity for last season's main challengers. These two sides claimed the top two spots in Premier League last season, and this game would serve as an early indicator of which direction the wind is blowing in the league this season.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino played down comments made by Antonio Conte after meeting with his Chelsea counterpart, who had questioned his rival's ambition. They hosted their four Champions League home games at the stadium last season and won just one of them - their only victory in their last nine appearances and their first at Wembley since February 2008. But Chelsea have been so petulant and so poor that if they lose their heads and lose another game, it will be a historically bad start.

Asked to go into more detail about the conversation, Pochettino would not reveal what was said but felt Conte explained the situation well. Things are not looking rosy for the reigning champions, but they still know how important a game this is.

Once they'd got it back to 2-2 and were dominating to pound Chelsea back, they couldn't really find a way through.

The rest of the big six had more predictable weekends.

Attack: Heung-min Son also made his comeback from a broken arm last weekend but I think we'll see the South Korean global remain among the substitutes this weekend. However, all the money spent in the Premier League can not buy the telepathic understanding between Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli.

Even if that is the case, it still doesn't mean there isn't an issue, given that their best asset over 2016-17 was their form at White Hart Lane.

Manager Antonio Conte, though, says he is having no trouble keeping dark thoughts at bay. We need time to work, to improve.

Chelsea will be without Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas after they were both sent off against Burnley last Saturday, while Eden Hazard, Pedro and Tiemoue Bakayoko all remain sidelined through injury.

Kyle Scott is another option to play in central midfield but he will likely be on the bench, which will once again be very youthful, as Chelsea aim to add new players in the transfer market before 31 August.
