The Premier League makes a very welcome return this weekend, and the blue’s tussle with spurs is the standout fixture in England’s top flight over the next few days.

It is sure to be another tense encounter between the two most successful British sides in history, as the Blues  do battle with their fiercest rivals.

Victory for either side will act as a huge momentum boost following the international break, with both teams looking flawed so far in 2018/19.

Maurizio sarri will know how important the outcome of this match is in terms of his unbeaten start, while pochettino will be well aware that more dropped points will see them drift out of the title race already.

There are a number of important match-ups on the pitch that could have a huge bearing on the result; here are three that we think could be most pivotal.

 

DELE ALLI VS JORGINHO

A lot of the game is likely to be played in the middle of the park and who shines more between Alli Or jorginho could prove vital.

The young duo’s are two of the finest midfielders in England and their importance to their team cannot be understated.

Jorginh provides the catalyst for Sarri’s free flowing football, with his ability to dictate play from his deep-lying role.

Alli, Meanwhile, has been sensational for spurs, with the teenager one of the most talented player England has produced in the last 20years.

He will once again be deployed in attacking midfield and it will be up to jorginho to extinguish the threat of the elegant 21year old.

It should be an enthralling match-up between two prodigiously gifted players and keeping each other quiet will be very much the order of the day.

 

EDEN HAAZARD VS TRIPPER

Tripper, is expected to pass a late fitness test after withdrawing from England squad during the int. Break.

But coming up against the scintillating eden hazard will be terrible way to make his rerurn.

Hazard will drift in from the left hand side in what is likely to be a 4-3-3 formation, which will make things tricky for tripper.

The Belgium international has shown time and time again how dangerous he can be inside those left-side areas.

He is never going to beat Tripper  for pace on the outside, or outmuscle him, so the Spurs man will at least know what is coming.

The England international is not a great defender, and his questionable positional sense and general intelligence can sometimes be his downfall—he is
enjoying a good season, however.

If Tripper allow Hazard to run the show then Chelsea  may well triumph, but equally, the Blue’s talisman must help negate his opponents’ threat at the other end of the pitch.

KANE VS RUDIGER

After Enduring such a tortuous first year at stamford bridge rudiger is finally starting to look the part in a Chelsea shirt.

On Saturday he will come up against the most  deadly striker in the League in harry kane which will be a true test of his character.

Spurs’ star striker has been a huge reason for their surprise title challenge this season, and in a game of huge importance, they need him to deliver once
again.

He also drops deep in order to become more involved in Spurs’ build-up play, which will also give the German. the dilemma of either tracking his man or allowing him space.

It will be a physical battle and one rudiger must win if Chelsea are to preserve their unbeaten run.
