Chelsea FC march into the match keen to bounce back from their 3-2 loss to Burnley at Stamford Bridge last weekend as they suffered a disappointing defeat at home.
Tottenham, however, started their campaign with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at St James’ Park last Sunday.
Maurio’s men will be playing all of their home games at Wembley this season as they wait for the redevelopment of White Hart Lane to be completed.
But, despite Chelsea’s slow start to the new campaign, former Arsenal star Paul Merson is backing the champions to enjoy a strong season.
Writing in his column for the Daily Star, Merson said: “Spurs are playing at full strength but they didn’t look like scoring in a month of Sundays against Newcastle until Jonjo Shelvey was sent off.
“I think they would take a draw on Sunday. They will be desperate not to lose in their first game at Wembley otherwise it will be, ‘Oh, Spurs can’t win there’, all over again.
“But I think Chelsea will probably be happy with a draw as well after losing to Burnley in their opening game.
“You can’t write them off yet, though, despite Antonio Conte moaning about not having enough players.” Watch & Bet Football Live Here =>
