Tottenham vs Chelsea
Tottenham Hotspur went to Old Trafford before the international break with many expecting them to sit deep and probably play for a draw, but the seventh minute, the handwriting on the wall was already pointing to a strange afternoon in Manchester.
Spurs rammed six past a ten man Manchester United and since then, belief has grown incredibly in favor of a possible title winning season for Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur, and who will question them?
Since their faltering start, they have picked themselves smartly and have won every game domestically as well as in Europe.
West Ham had a poor start to the season as well and have since picked themselves up with two back to back wins, scoring six without conceding any.
The two wins for West Ham came in games no one expected them to pick points from, against Wolves and Leicester, showing grit, tenacity and heart in moments that matter.
Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio have been the leading lights in the West Ham team and they will look to continue their rich form when they visit their London neighbors on Sunday.
Spurs on the other side might be able to unleash their sensational loan signing, Gareth Bale on the Hammers after video surfaced on the internet with the Welsh star hitting the ground smartly in training and even making a fool out of Joe Hart with a deft finish.
Jose Mourinho is famed for a successful second season anywhere he goes, is this going to play out again this time?
David Moyes will be contented with a season without relegation talks, he does have the quality in his squad to challenge for a comfortable top ten finish but can they sustain the current form?
