While repeating his Premier League title-winning exploits with Chelsea at Spurs might be hugely difficult for Antonio Conte given the sky-high standards that both Manchester City and Liverpool have set, Spurs are expected to fight towards the summit of the top-flight this term.
Last season, that position belonged to Chelsea, although so much has changed for Thomas Tuchel since then.
Despite having spent big money this summer, the Blues were hardly convincing at Everton, with many of the problems to have derailed their title push last season emerging once more.
A London derby at such an early stage of the campaign, it’s going to be fascinating to see which of the two capital counterparts can make an early statement in the battle to become the city’s top dog.
