Luka Modric has warned Tottenham overconfidence could prove fatal against misfiring Chelsea.
The Croatian midfielder is set to return to the Spurs midfield after missing the draw against FC Twente through illness.
“Okay, sure, they have some problems at the moment but that means nothing,” the midfielder said in the club’s official matchday programme.
“If we think we will beat them or we are favourites then it’s the wrong attitude.
“We need to give them massive respect but, at the same time, we believe in our strength and quality and we are all determined to beat them at home for the third time in row.
“We know they are a dangerous side full of great players, unbelievable players.
“When we get out on the pitch we need to play our game, to fight for every ball, to play with confidence and try to beat them again.
“We are in good form and we fear no-one at home.”
