Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea tomorrow night in the Premier League, as they look to make up the ground they lost on Liverpool at the weekend.

Spurs lost to Burnley on Saturday, missing the chance to go two points behind Man City and Liverpool.

The Reds are at home to Watford tomorrow, with Man City at home to West Ham.

Until last year, Tottenham had no won at Stamford Bridge in 27 years, so it has proved to be somewhat of a bogey ground for the North London side.

However, Tottenham’s development in recent years, mixed with a struggling Chelsea side may make the recipe for back to back away wins against the Blues.

Chelsea come into the game off the back of 120 long minutes in the Carabao Cup final against Man City on Sunday, a final in which they came out as losers.

Pochettino is adamant that Stamford Bridge is still a tough place to go for Spurs, and one win doesn’t change that.

He said (Football London): “Only one game in 28 years. Our mentality is to go there and try to win. Of course it’s going to be tough. The history is the history and last season we were able to win. But it is going to be a tough, tough game. History is there because something had happened and is happening and of course it’s tough for Tottenham to play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge but our mentality is to go there and try to win.”
