Tottenham Team News vs Arsenal: Heung-min Son, Lucas Moura

Tottenham Hotspur will visit the Emirates on Sunday after a tough game against Wolves in the EFL Cup. Facing Arsenal is not going to be easy, but manager Nuno Espirito Santo will be quietly confident of getting one over on Mikel Arteta.

Spurs have some thinking to do after losing their last two games in the Premier League. More than the results, it was the overall performance that worries the boss right now (admittedly) and he wants a much-improved display at the weekend. So who are the players that could miss this game?

Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction vs Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal won their third consecutive match of the season after beating Wimbledon 3-0 in the EFL Cup in midweek. Now, they have one of their biggest rivals to deal with, if not their biggest rival of all, on Sunday as they get ready to host Tottenham.

Both teams have had contrasting fortunes since the end of the international break and this result could have a huge bearing on how each club progresses along this season. Given the importance of this clash, how will Mikel Arteta respond with his team selection?

Nuno Admits Tottenham Hotspur Have a Lot of Problems Right Now

“Mo Money, Mo Problems” by Puff Daddy might as well be the theme song for Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo right now. The Portugese made a big step up in club (and obviously, paygrade) this summer when he left Wolverhampton Wanderers and took the gig in north London.

Or perhaps the more fitting rap song for Nuno is Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” as the gaffer admits his side/club have a lot of problems, but Harry Kane isn’t one.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Wolves

Tottenham Hotspur suffered their second straight defeat in the Premier League this past weekend, as they fell 3-0 to Chelsea. They now travel to the Molineux to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the EFL Cup third round and Nuno Espirito Santo will want to respond with a win against his former club.

It was certainly a day to forget on Sunday as the north Londoners could not cope with the relentless press from the Blues. That must concern the boss, as the players are going to have to be better if they want to beat Wolves.

Tottenham Team News vs Wolves: Lucas, Bergwijn, Kane

Tottenham make the trip north to the Molineux for the second time this season as they get ready to play Wolverhampton Wanderers in the EFL Cup third round. Their form after the international break has not been up to standard and the north Londoners obviously want to change that.

Spurs managed to reach the final of this competition last season and would obviously want to get there again. (And maybe, just maybe, end their trophy drought?) However, just getting out of this round itself won’t be easy as they are coming up against a Wolves team stacked with talent.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News vs Chelsea: Son, Sanchez, Lucas

Tottenham return to Premier League action on Sunday as they get ready to host local rivals Chelsea in a much-anticipated derby. The north Londoners are set to be without a host of players, so let’s go through the list.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Chelsea

Tottenham did not get the result that they wanted in the Conference League as they could only draw against Stade Rennes. With a London derby on Sunday, as Chelsea come to town, how will Nuno Espirito Santo respond with his team selection?

The north Londoners were more dominant on Thursday but could not prevent the French side from scoring twice. They did well to secure a point after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalised. Nuno will be aware of the improvement that is needed if his team are to overcome the visiting Blues.

Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at Tottenham Hotspur

Chelsea FC have truly dominated Tottenham Hotspur over the course of their Premier League series, and hence they are considerable favorites in Sunday’s headliner fixture. The bookmakers have Spurs are priced at (+340) while Chelsea can be had for (-130). Meanwhile a draw is backed (+265).

Romelu Lukaku has been everything Stamford Bridge could have asked for and more. As Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has pointed out, he gives them exactly what they need, both on and off the pitch.

Chelsea Team News vs Tottenham: Christian Pulisic, N’Golo Kante

In assessing the headliner feature of the Premier League weekend, Chelsea at Tottenham, let’s take a look at some very telling stats. Tottenham have conceded more Premier League goals against Chelsea (103) then they have against any other opponent in the history of the PL.

Spurs have lost more times in the PL (31) to Chelsea, then they have to anyone else, other than Manchester United. Additionally, should they lose here, it would then mark three league losses in a row at home to the Blues, something which hasn’t happened since 2004.
