Mauricio Pochettino and his Tottenham side return to the site of the infamous ‘Battle of the Bridge’ this weekend as they take on London rivals Chelsea.

The two sides met towards the end of last season and played out a violent 2-2 draw which, in turn, handed Claudio Ranieri and his Leicester side the Premier League title.

The fixture last season got more than out-of-hand as Spurs picked up a record breaking nine yellow cards in a game which ended in an all out brawl on the touchline, including Mauricio Pochettino.

The North London side head south of the river on Saturday as the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this season, however, they face the toughest test yet.

Antonio Conte has transformed his Chelsea side since the switch to a 3-4-3 formation, having not conceded a goal in the Premier League in six outings, scoring a staggering 17 goals.

In what could be a very tightly balanced game, both sides will need their key men to step up to the plate, and Conte and Pochettino will be pinning plenty of hope on the performances of both Eden Hazard and Dele Alli.

But how do the pair weigh up? Take a look…
