Ginola fears playing at Wembley will hurt Spurs season

However, he said in post match comments to the press that he was pleased with his team's overall performance against a very good Chelsea team.

The England worldwide defender was hurt in the pre-season win over Juventus and sat out the trip to Newcastle, with Kyle Walker-Peters given the nod to play and being named man of the match on his debut. They made White Hart Lane a fortress last term, which was a major contributor towards the stellar campaign they endured. However, we have left North London with a victory eight times in our last 20 attempts.

So the other stars of the club need to take their responsibility on their shoulders to win their games in this season.

Tottenham's first home outing of 2017-18 sees the wounded reigning champions travel to Wembley for a derby clash with big implications on both sides.

The current record is 76,073, which was set when Manchester United hosted Aston Villa at Old Trafford in January 2007.

Chelsea have an intense diversion as they plan to confront Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, which will be Spurs' home this season.

Spurs began the second half at the same bright pace, with Kane seeing a header deflect wide off Luiz after he had failed to make convincing contact just a few yards out.

Antonio Conte has addressed speculation that he will quit Chelsea, suggesting he would like to be in charge at the club when they move into the new Stamford Bridge.

Mauricio Pochettino welcomes the champions to Wembley on Sunday with a simple message.

"I must have a good mood because I have to transfer positivity and not negativity", said the Italian. "When you put your work at 200 per cent, it's enough to be calm and to face the situation in the right way". They note that Danny Rose, Erik Lamela and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou have all been ruled out.

Kieran Trippier and Victor Wanyama return to the starting line up in place of Kyle Walker-Peters, who was the Man of the Match in the 2-0 win over Newcastle last weekend, and Moussa Sissoko.

Suspensions to Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas and the long-term injury to Eden Hazard meant that Chelsea started the match with just 14 fit senior players, including the bench, meaning Conte handed Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata their full debuts, despite both being short of match fitness.
