Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea Match Preview
Spurs welcome the Blues to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium looking for a win to maintain their unbeaten run and stay top of the table.
Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham have made an incredible start to the 2023/24 Premier League season, with them unbeaten in their first ten matches, with eight wins and two draws, with Chelsea their next opponents at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Monday 6th November (20:00 Kick Off).
As a result of their form, they sit at the summit of the table with 26 points, and they are 2 points ahead of North London rivals Arsenal in 2nd and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in 3rd place.
The aim for Spurs in the Premier League this season is to qualify for the UEFA Champions League with a top-four finish. As we mentioned, they are leading the race for a spot in European football’s premier club competition, with them sitting in 1st place.
After missing out on European Football last term, they will be determined not to do so again in 2023/24. A win against Chelsea would further strengthen their hopes of Champions League football, and they would remain at the top.
Tottenham’s first game of the 2023/24 Premier League season saw them face Thomas Frank’s Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium. In their first game since Harry Kane’s departure for Bayern Munich, the Lilywhites drew 2 – 2 with the Bees. Cristian Romero (11’) and Emerson Royal (45+4’) were both on the scoresheet for the away side that day. Bryan Mbeumo (27’) and Yoane Wissa (36’) were the goal scorers for the hosts.
A first home game of the season against Manchester United in North London followed, and it ended up being a statement victory for Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur, who were 2 – 0 winners against Erik Ten Hag’s Red Devils. Pape Matar Sarr (49’) and an own goal from United central defender Lisandro Martinez (83’) in the second half ensured all three points for the Lilywhites.

Spurs then came from behind to beat Paul Heckingbottom’s newly promoted Sheffield United side, beating them 2 – 1. Both of the home side’s goals came in second-half stoppage time, with Richarlison (90+8’) and Dejan Kulusevski (90+10’) both finding the back of the Blades’ net in dramatic fashion.
The North London Derby came next, and in a tense and competitive match, Spurs and Arsenal drew 2 – 2 at the Emirates Stadium. Son Heung-Min scored both goals for the Lilywhites that day (42’, 55’).
Yet another statement win followed in Tottenham’s next match when they emerged as 2 – 1 winners against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

An own goal from Liverpool central defender Joel Matip won Spurs the game in the last seconds of the second half (90+6’).
Micky Van de Ven, a summer signing from German Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg, was on the scoresheet (52’) in a 1 – 0 win at Kenilworth Road against Luton Town after the game against Liverpool.
London rivals Fulham were the next Premier League opponents for Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs side, who won 2 – 0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following goals from Son Heung-Min (36’) and James Maddison (54’).
