"I look at some of my players and I am sure that some of them will be better this season than they were last season, and Anthony is that for sure".

In the meantime, Tottenham signed Davinson Sanchez from Ajax for £42m, a new club record. But the defending Premier League champions will be without veterans Diego Costa, Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas and are coming off an underwhelming loss to Burnley FC last weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino revealed this week his desire to win a "real trophy" with Spurs - and what better way to banish that Wembley curse and prove his intention realistic by dispatching the visiting domestic champions on Sunday.

It was a awful afternoon at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea as not only they've lost 2-3 against Burnley, but Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas both got sent off and weakened already truncated Chelsea squad.

Two goals from Marcos Alonso gave Chelsea a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in the first-ever Premier League game at Wembley Stadium.

The subject of the Premier League favourite stemmed from Mourinho scoffing at the suggestion United were in a more stable position than their rivals. And getting a good result against the reigning league champions would do wonders for their confidence and morale. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is the only other player Spurs are missing. While Spurs are more or less the same team that finished last season so well, they do not have Kyle Walker any more and Danny Rose is injured and facing an uncertain future. But can they do it against the top home side in the league past year? Last season we started to build this foundation and we won, so it means we built something.

Just as it was beginning to look like yet another one of those days for Spurs at Wembley, substitute Batshuayi headed Christian Eriksen's in-swinging free kick into his own net. But no, we need a big trophy'.

Harry Kane has scored 18 goals in 21 Premier League London derbies since his brace versus Chelsea on New Year's Day in 2015.

Though an argument could be made that £58 million is far too much for a player who has yet to exceed 16 league starts in a season, there's no denying that the Spanish forward is good at what he does. And also I think that is when you put your work at 200 per cent, I think it's enough to be calm and face the situation in the right way.
