Chelsea will play hosts to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge in the 2022/23 Premier League on Sunday (this evening).
Thomas Tuchel’s side began their Premier League campaign with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Everton away at Goodison Park.

The performance was far from convincing, and the German tactician needs to find a way to address some issues at the earliest if the Blues are to fare better than they did the last term in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Tottenham began their campaign with a bang, thrashing Southampton 4-1 at home.
What will be encouraging for Antonio Conte is neither of his star attackers, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, scored in the opener, but the team found other players to pick up the goalscoring duties.
A victory for either team in this high-profile encounter would send out an early message about their title credentials to the rest of their rivals.
Chelsea have won each of their last four matches against Tottenham in all competitions and will hope to carry that streak forward, while the Lilywhites will be eager to break that run at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
