We’ve come a long way in the last few years. Do you remember when Mourinho accused Spurs of parking the bus? Well today I think it could be Jose that parks the bus.
The sense of expectation has risen, I now expect to win our home games against the top clubs where in the past I was more than happy with a draw.
Straight after the Cardiff game I started to get excited about the Chelsea match, the games can’t seem to come quick enough for me now, I find myself more eager just to see our new look team take to the field and see what they can produce.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Chelsea played some of the game without a striker on the pitch, I think Mourinho knows Tottenham are a completely different prospect to the last time his Chelsea team played us. However I am also aware that Chelsea are a very good team and Mourinho will know exactly what he needs to do to get a result, things might not go our way and there’s every chance we may end up on the losing side.
It comes down to the home advantage thing for me, if we were playing at Stamford Bridge then I would happily take a draw but at WHL I think we have a team now that gives us the right to expect to beat anyone and that includes Chelsea. If we really do expect to be a top team then it’s not unreasonable to expect to win home games against the others around you.
I am absolutely buzzin’ today, this type of match is what the Premier League is all about and today we will find out just how far we have come, will we get the job done or is our bubble about to burst?
Show me your lineups chaps, how would you start the match?Follow @TrfficTottenham
