Pochettino oversaw Spurs' best period in decades during over five years in charge - culminating in a Champions League final - but returns as an enemy.

Ange Postecoglou, meanwhile, has taken his new squad to the top of the Premier League thanks to the best ever start to a season made by a newly-appointed manager. He will know another victory under the lights will be the most important of the lot, by a distance.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Tottenham vs Chelsea is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off tonight on Monday November 6, 2023.

The match will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in north London.

Tottenham vs Chelsea prediction

Spurs are clearly the team in form, they are top of the table after all, while Chelsea have just three league wins all season and come into the game after yet another unconvincing display, albeit in victory, against Championship Blackburn in the Carabao Cup.

But, as the saying goes, the form book can go out the window in derbies. This one in particular - given the intense rivalry and Pochettino's return - will require the calmest of heads to come out victors. Chelsea could cause an upset but Postecoglou will have his players ready not to let the occasion get to them.

Tottenham to win, 2-1.
