Football This Wekeend: Chelsea (Unstoppable force) v Spurs (Immovable object)

Chelsea are top of the log and flying
Club football’s been back for just over a week, but what a week it’s been. Bayern Munich have lost twice in that time, to Dortmund (understandably) and FC Rostov (head-scratchingly), even more shocking newly promoted RB Leizpig sit top of the Bundesliga (Leicester anyone?), Chelsea have returned to the summit of the Premier League riding a 6 match winning streak in which they’ve scored 16 and conceded 0 and it looks like Neymar could be set for some jail time (he’s not the only one, Eto’o has also decided orange’s the new black).
This weekend’s fixtures promise to dish out more excitement and there could be significant movement on the log in Europe’s big 5 leagues, well except Serie A because Juventus have opened up a 7 point gap, of course.
Spurs will be looking to Harry Kane to breach a defence that has been impenetrable in recent weeks

Chelsea welcome Tottenham Hotspurs to the Bridge in Saturday’s late kickoff (6:30pm) and the fortunes of the two sides could not be more different. Spurs come into this one on the back of a 2 – 1 loss to Monaco in France which means they’re out of the Champions League but their league form is a different kettle of fish as West Ham found out at the weekend, losing by the odd goal in five after taking the lead twice. Chelsea, on the other hand, have been playing unarguably their best football this year and sit top of the log.
It will be a meeting of the tightest defences this season, Chelsea have conceded 9, but importantly none in their last six matches while Spurs despite the absence of Alderweireld have the meanest backline, just the 6 goals conceded in 11 matches. What it will not be is dull, matches between these London rivals are always hotly contested, there were 12 goals scored in fixtures between these sides last term.
Historically, Chelsea fans can expect a good result, Spurs have not beaten Chelsea at the Bridge in 26 years although they came close last season taking a 2 goal lead, but goals from Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard preserved that record and also put the League title out of reach for them, and that might figure prominently on Saturday. So, what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?
