- Tottenham vs Chelsea will kick off at 2300EAT on Monday evening.
- Spurs, who are second, can go back to the top of the table with a win.
- Chelsea are in13th spot on 12 points, fourteen behind Tottenham.
Matchday 11 in the 2023/24 English Premier League will come to an end in perfect style when high-flying Tottenham Hotspur welcome Chelsea in a Monday night clash expected to deliver fireworks at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs are currently enjoying their best start to a top-flight season since 1960/61 and their impressive form is backed by the fact that they are the only side yet to taste defeat this season after the opening ten games (W8 D2).
The Ange Postecoglou-coached side could go back to the top of the table with a win over Chelsea but have to be wary of the fact that they have beaten the Blues just once in the last eight league meetings (D2 L6).
Additionally, Spurs have conceded more home league goals against Chelsea than any other side in the competition’s history – a record that the revitalized side will be looking to erase when former boss Mauricio Pochettino leads his troops back to Spurs.
While Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning way after being beaten by Brentford in their last league assignment, Spurs will be eyeing to go back to the summit of the log with Postecoglou hoping to become just the third manager to go unbeaten in his first-ever eleven games in the league.

The game is set to kick off at 2300EAT at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham vs Chelsea Team News
Chelsea will have the services of Mykhailo Mudryk, who is available again after a slight muscle injury, and Armando Broja could make the bench when Pochettino returns to his old stomping ground for the first time in four years as the Blues target a fourth win in five league visits.
The Blues are however stripped of the services of seven injured players but recent games have provided food for thought, especially options at the back.
Benoit Badiashile’s delayed return began with an assured midweek display and a goal (only the second from a defender this season); Thiago Silva has been rested; and his left-back choice is between in-form players, Levi Colwill or Marc Cucurella.
Poch will hope his forwards, possibly comprise the returning Mudryk and confident Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling
For Tottenham, Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon and Ryan Sessegnon remain sidelined for the league leaders, while Ben Davies is a doubt, so Destiny Ugdogie could be pressed to return at left-back after injury.

Tottenham vs Chelsea prediction
Tottenham will be riding high on confidence given their current form and the fact that they will be playing in front of a passionate home crowd that has quickly taken to their new manager and are backed to be slight favourites.
However, Pochettino will want to prove a point in the clash and goals from both sides are not expected to be hard to come by.
