Chelsea have won eight of their 10 home London derbies in the Premier League since the start of 2018/19.

Tammy Abraham will aim to score in three consecutive PL matches for the first time since September 2019.

Jose Mourinho lost both PL meetings with Frank Lampard last season. He has never lost three consecutive league matches against the same manager or club before.

Spurs can become the fifth team to win their first five PL away matches in a season, after Newcastle United (1994/95), Charlton Athletic (2005/06), Chelsea (2008/09) and Manchester City (2017/18).
