Chelsea are in action on Sunday this weekend and they will be appreciating a bit of a break after Tuesday’s Champions League win over Rennes.
Sunday is no easy game, they face current Premier League leaders Tottenham, who are looking like a very confident outfit under Jose Mourinho so far this season.

But Frank Lampard’s Blues are also a team with confidence right now playing off the back of a 13-game unbeaten run. So this game has all the ingredients to become a classic, which this fixture so often produces.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was pinnacle to the victory in France this week scoring the opener and playing very well. As a result he will be hoping he can continue that form with a start on Sunday.
He certainly sounds like he is in the mood for it with a rallying cry to his team mates old and new ahead of the game.
As reported by WAGNH, Hudson-Odoi said:
“They know it is a big game. Every time Chelsea play Tottenham, everybody knows how big of a game it is.
“We want to win every game that we play against them. The new boys already know that it is going to be a massive game, it is going to be a tough one as well but we want to go out there and get the three points and hopefully we will be smiling at the weekend.
“It is a big derby, we want to beat them. It is a massive game. We are going to go in there confident. We have to make sure we recover well after Tuesday and hopefully get the three points.”
