Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, England
Key Stat: Tottenham's only victory against Chelsea in their last six meetings was after a penalty shoot-out in the Carabao Cup in September.
Expert Verdict: Thomas Tuchel earned his first win as Chelsea manager last weekend and now takes on a former Chelsea boss who has found his Tottenham side faltering. Their defeats to Liverpool and Brighton and run of one league win in four games have undone Spurs’ earlier form and Chelsea – with an excellent record in this fixture – can claim all three points.
With Tottenham Hotspur faltering, Jose Mourinho now faces former side, Chelsea, in the Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs are looking to end a two-match losing streak, while Chelsea’s new boss Thomas Tuchel is bidding to build on his first victory in charge last weekend. The match, on February 4, kicks off at 20:00 local time.

Tottenham Hotspur are without a win in any of their last six matches against Chelsea, with the exception of a penalty shoot-out win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Carabao Cup this season. That followed a 1-1 draw in which Erik Lamela cancelled out Timo Werner’s opener before Mason Mount missed the crucial kick. Their last meeting, in the league at Stamford Bridge, ended goalless however. Here are the results of the last five matches:
