Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

This weekend sees another huge clash in the Premier League as Tottenham travel to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. These are two clubs that will be hoping to challenge for the title, but the home side are in better form and will be confident of extending their lead over their London rivals.

The Emergence Of Victor Moses Under Conte's Revamped Chelsea

Antonio Conte's Chelsea side is forging ahead, currently riding a five-match win streak and well within striking distance for the top spot in the Premiership.

Stamford Bridge, once the scene for success and adulation for Jose Mourinho, became the setting for his Manchester United team to be soundly beaten by Chelsea. Arguably, not just beaten, but demolished in a match that highlighted how good Chelsea can be on their day and how much work is still to be done at Old Trafford if they are to reclaim the Premier League trophy. There was a visibly added vigour in some of the Chelsea players; a level …
Does Victor Moses' emergence suggest a sign of Chelsea changing strategy?

Does Victor Moses' emergence suggest a sign of Chelsea changing strategy?

Chelsea have been accused of neglecting their youth players by exploiting the loan market. The Blues had an incredible 38 players on loan at other clubs across Europe and before this season, it looked like the club were stockpiling talent in order to make a profit.
