Tottenham Hotspur have had the best part of a fortnight to mull over the defeat they suffered at the hands of Norwich City in their last under-21 Premier League game.
It’s important for the side to react positively to the 3-1 defeat but matches don’t come much tougher in the competition this season than against a talented young Chelsea side.
Chelsea haven’t played since the 2-2 draw against Fulham on October 18, which saw them frustrated by a side now above them in the under-21 Premier League table.
A win for Tottenham Hotspur puts them onto nine points and ahead of Liverpool in sixth place while a win for Chelsea offers them the chance to go back to the top of the table where they would be one point ahead of Manchester United.
The break each side has had means this match is difficult to gauge but Spurs could be the sharper of the two teams as they have had longer to rest and haven’t had players playing in the UEFA Youth League, which accompanies European weeks.
