Mauricio Pochettino will be without two important players for Tottenham’s trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea this evening.

Spurs looked to have forced themselves into the Premier League title race, even with Harry Kane sitting out several league games with an ankle injury. However, their loss to Burnley last time out proves that nothing has changed in North London. They’re still bottlers.

We are all hoping for another capitulation this evening, with Spurs proving to be a more difficult opponent in recent seasons than Chelsea fans have been used to over the years. We have been helped in our efforts to bag the three points by the footballing gods.

Though it is not our style to wish injury on a player, games of this magnitude are often decided by the fine margins. With Physio Room reporting that both Dele Alli and Eric Dier will be unavailable for selection tonight, the pendulum may have swung in our favour.

If you’re unable to watch the game tonight, make sure you do follow our coverage of it on Twitter @TalkChelsea. We’ll have footage of all goals and other highlights right here on Come on you Blues!
