Chelsea and Tottenham, two of the hottest teams in the English Premier League, will lock horns Saturday, October 20 in what will be one of the better showdowns of the season thus far.
Chelsea leads the EPL with 19 points and Tottenham has recorded 14 points, but a victory for Spurs would narrow the gap to only two.
Here is where you catch this EPL clash:
When: Saturday, October 20 at 7:45 a.m. ET
Where: White Hart Lane, London, England
Live Stream: WatchESPN
What to watch for
Winners of four games in a row and unbeaten in six games, Tottenham has poured it on after picking up only two points in its first three games.
Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham club has been playing with confidence and a sense of urgency. They went into Old Trafford and defeated Manchester United on September 29, their first victory at Old Trafford since 1989 and followed that up with a shutout of Aston Villa.
After receiving loads of criticism at Chelsea last year, and the struggles to start the campaign, Villas-Boas has his team flying high into a showdown with the league's best team.
Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is leading the team with four goals. It has taken Torres a while to get accustomed to playing for the Blues, but he has continued to press on despite all the criticism he received.
Torres may not ever return to his former form, prior to Chelsea, but he's inching closer.
Chelsea's return to prominence
After having an up-and-down season last year, Chelsea has returned to prominence in 2012. They have won six games while drawing once for a league-leading 19 points, four points ahead of rival Manchester United.
Eden Hazard has played as advertised, the aforementioned Torres has been great and the defense has played stoutly, allowing five goals in seven games.
This appears to be the Chelsea of old. Watch out, EPL.
Chelsea 1, Tottenham 1.
