We’re pretty confident that Chelsea can continue their strong start in the Premier League by claiming an away win in this north London derby. Thomas Tuchel has a squad capable of challenging hard for the title and the German has organised the defence to be a brick wall thanks to the rock solid Antonio Rudiger being partnered with Andreas Christensen, Trevor Chalobah or Thiago Silva.

Therefore, it could be hard work for Tottenham to find the net in this clash, with Son Heung-Min potentially returning to the line-up although Nuno Espirito Santo tends to operate in a defensive capacity and he will regard a point as a positive outcome against opponents who have a highly prolific striker operating for them.

Romelu Lukaku could prove to be the difference and the Belgian broke the deadlock at the Emirates Stadium a few weeks ago, with Saul Niguez having made his debut last weekend and it’s crazy when you look at some of the players on the bench such as Mason Mount, Timo Werner, Jorginho and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Japhet Tanganga will be missing for the home side and the defensive creakiness was in evidence when Crystal Palace scored three goals that were unanswered by a team who had previously won their first three games by a 1-0 scoreline.
