It's a fact that I think will divide opinion amongst Chelsea fans, Spurs fans and even football neutrals right now. Chelsea had a hoodoo over Spurs for years and called their patch "three point lane" but you have to admit we can't call it that anymore can we.

Spurs (no matter what your bias is) have done great under Harry Redknapp considering that some of them didn't want him!. He has slowly put together a great squad of players with experience and youth and has built on it season after season.

This season they have added Scott Parker to their ranks in midfield as the ball winner they had been missing and added class up front in Adebayor. Just look at the two they replaced, Peter Crouch and Jermaine Jenas. I think we'd all take Parker and Adebayor over those two!

We HAVE TO consider Spurs now as genuine title challengers because of the threat they pose and although it pains me to say it, fair play to them.

As for Chelsea, we are suffering the same problems and the same arguments amongst ourselves as last season. The core of the Chelsea side from the Mourinho era remains in place and maybe, just maybe the time for some of them is drawing to a close, or is it?.

Didier Drogba puts in imperious performances in big games but remains inconsistent. Frank Lampard has a good game one week, then moans about being a sub so is recalled and then plays and hardly features in the game. Michael Essien is ravaged with injury problems, Petr Cech we thought was getting back to his best but then makes a ricket like at Wigan. John Terry is the only one at the moment that HAS TO BE playing every game.

To be fair Chelsea are trying to create a new revolution at the club to take over the mantle from the "old guard". Fernando Torres and David Luiz were brought in last Winter along with Ramires (contender for player of the season so far) back in the summer. Juan Mata, Oriol Romeu (Who is close to being player of our season so far)and Romelu Lukaku were also signed this summer and Danny Sturridge (another contender for player of the season so far) has made an impressive return to the club.

Chelsea have the potential in the younger players, the experience and world class players who need to step up to the plate before we can consider winning the Premier League.

I guess the argument here is who has the stronger squad of the two sides to call upon at the moment? Do Spurs really have the quality in the depth of their squad to replace a Bale, Dawson or Modric compared to Chelsea?. In saying that, do Chelsea fans believe we have the squad depth?

One thing is for sure on paper this makes for a cracker on Thursday night. It always is between us two and I am really looking forward to it as long as Chelsea are up for it and perform exactly how they are capable of doing. We have shown against Valencia, Newcastle and Manchester City in recent weeks we can beat anyone on our day but then are total crap against Wigan!.

Spurs on the other hand are winning far more than they are losing or drawing at the moment compared to Chelsea!.

So I am asking you the football fan reading this to give me a sensible answer to the following question:
Are Chelsea underdogs on Thursday night at White Hart Lane?
