Tonight is one of those games you look for when the fixture list comes out, added to that it's being played on a Thursday night, it has all the makings of being a cracker!.

Regular readers of my website would have seen various posts from me this week ahead of the game. I have asked who would come out on top between Mata & Modric, asked if it's a fact that Chelsea are now underdogs heading into the game tonight, asked who starts the game for Chelsea tonight, focused on the other midfield battle at White Hart Lane, commented on the news that David Luiz is out injured and who should replace him and finally posted a video promo this morning.

So it's now match day and the game tonight is anyone's guess to be honest. Questions are being asked of both sides as to the starting eleven. We know Lennon and Luiz are out of the game already and Gareth Bale is also a doubt (which is good news for Chelsea). Bale could still make the game, if he doesn't expect Sandro to keep his place in the side.

Will Drogba start this one or will Fernando Torres finally get the chance he has been waiting for? What about Frank Lampard? Does he play or does Ramires come back and line up next to Meireles? These are all questions that will be answered around 7pm as we get the early team news.


It really is anyone's guess as to who starts for both sides as this game is now massive. Spurs are in the ascendancy these days. Harry Redknapp has done a fantastic job there and has built a strong squad season on season. With the addition of Scott Parker he has added some blood and thunder into the midfield and with Adebayor up front, some class.

Sitting above us and with a game in hand, Spurs are in position to cement third place in the Premier League as we head into the games over the festive period with a win. If they beat us, we surely have to see them as genuine title contenders.

Expect a 4-4-2 formation from them with Rafael Van Der Vaart in behind Adebayor to start with. Modric will move wide to allow Sandro to play next to Parker and maybe Walker pushed further forward if Bale doesn't make it. Spurs will be up for this one make no mistake.

Spurs are a threat going forward and Chelsea without Luiz, need to ensure that if they stick with Bosingwa at right back, he must be solid. Terry and Ivanovic to deal with Adebayor and Oriol Romeu mopping up just in front of our defence to nullify the threat of Van Der Vaart.

I do believe however, Spurs are vulnerable at the back.


Again, it's anyone's guess as to who starts for Chelsea and being honest, what side turns up on the night. I still cannot get over last weekend against Wigan, the performance and the substitutions that were made. Chelsea looked a shadow of themselves from the side that beat Manchester City, Newcastle and Valencia.

Without question, Chelsea need their big big players to turn up and use their experience tonight. I want Torres to play but I think Drogba will start for his sheer presence up front. The question is 'will he be up for it?". Drogba on his day is simply unplayable and we need him to be that way in this one. It's not just about Drogba though for Chelsea.

In Danny Sturridge we have a player on form and scoring goals and will be a threat to Spurs. His pace and skill will test Assou Ekotto and he will have a job on his hands to keep him quiet. Sturridge could win this for us and I hope he plays well.

Expect Juan Mata to come inside and look to get on the ball as much as possible, Ramires to use his energy to get up and down the pitch with support from Meireles and Romeu. Oriol Romeu has been outstanding and hopefully, will show the Spurs fans just how good he is but helping our back four shut Spurs out. Romeu is another player who needs a big big game tonight.

This has become a game that Chelsea HAVE TO WIN. I think a draw would be acceptable but if we want to get back on a run of games we have to beat Spurs. It's possible as on our day we can beat anyone but I cannot emphasise this enough, it depends on everyone being up for it and playing well. If anyone isn't, bring them off and replace them.

For Spurs, they will want to win this one as well but would take a draw to keep above us with their game in hand.

I really hope that both sides really go for it and we have a cracking game. Who comes out on top, it's anyone's guess!
