Chelsea - Tottenham: times, how to watch on TV, stream online in US/UK
All the info on how and where to watch as Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on matchday 2 of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
Antonio Conte returns to Stamford Bridge on Sunday with his Spurs side sitting top of the Premier League after putting four past Southampton last weekend. The Italian spent two seasons at Chelsea, winning the league title in 2016-17 and the FA Cup the following season before departing for Inter Milan and although the chances of repeating that league success at Tottenham are remote, he will be confident of getting a result at the home of his former employers. However, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has a 100% record against Spurs and the Blues spent big in the transfer market, adding Raheem Sterling, Marc Cucurella, Kalidou Koulibaly and Carney Chukwuemeka to an already impressive squad.

Spurs have also added a few players, notably Richarlison from Everton, who will provide some much-needed support for Harry Kane, and midfielder Yves Bissouma from Brighton. The Brazilian is in line for his debut after returning from suspension, but Spurs will be without Barcelona defender Clément Lenglet, the loanee carrying a muscle injury.
The hosts will have to contend without Mateo Kovacic, who has a knee issue, and Marcos Alonso, who is expected to move to Camp Nou imminently.

Chelsea vs Spurs: AS prediction
Tuchel’s record against Spurs and home advantage suggest the points will remain at Stamford Bridge, where Spurs have only won once in the league since 1990. However, Conte will be keen to put one over on his former employers and Spurs were rampant against an admittedly acquiescent Southampton last weekend. If Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min find their groove in West London anything is possible, and Richarlison will be keen to make his mark if selected. Chelsea laboured to victory against Everton in their opener and will need to be more on the ball to beat a side who have picked up four consecutive Premier League victories between this season and the last.
