The early kick-off on Sunday sees Chelsea travel a few kilometres to take on London rivals Tottenham both the clubs were in European action in midweek with Chelsea winning 4-0 against Maccabi Tel Aviv and Tottenham qualifying for the next round of the Europa League with a 1-0 away win at Qarabag.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino wasn’t best pleased with the scheduling of the game, especially since Tottenham played on Thursday almost 6,000 kilometres away before making the trip back to England. Tottenham are however better placed than Chelsea in the league table and are unbeaten since the start of the season when they lost 1-0 to Manchester United.

Chelsea, on the other hand, seem to be getting back on track thanks to two victories from as many games, though the performances have not been at the same level expected from a Chelsea team it is something that the team can build on and hopefully push on for the rest of the season. While Tottenham might be favourites, Chelsea can do some damage as well in this highly anticipated goal fest.

We look ahead to this clash and provide three reasons as to why Chelsea will win this London derby against Tottenham.

The Europa League fixture playing havoc for Tottenham

Tottenham had to travel from Azerbaijan after their Europa League win that in itself would be playing with the fitness and recovery of the players and then having to play an early Sunday fixture against Chelsea certainly will not help their cause.

Mauricio Pochettino might be one of the best managers in the league at the moment, but even he cannot help his team recover this quickly and with Chelsea getting almost two days of complete rest more than Spurs, that extra energy could well help Chelsea in their quest for victory against their London rivals.
