Chelsea Football Club boss Mauricio Pochettino has said that his team will keep it natural as he travels to Tottenham for the London derby.

Pochettino who managed Tottenham between 2014 and 2019 will be seeking to clinch all the three points after suffering a defeat at Brentford

‘I don’t believe we need to show something special,’ said Pochettino. ‘‘We need to be natural, that’s the most important thing.

‘You cannot underestimate the Tottenham and Chelsea fans. I don’t want to be a hypocrite and say something I don’t feel, or I’m in the process of creating. People are clever. Chelsea fans know I was Tottenham, they know about the Champions League, they know about the Battle of the Bridge. It’s impossible to hide this emotion. Now I cannot say I forget all those things. That would be stupid.

‘I’m going to be natural. I hope to enjoy to a great game, I want to win, that is our competitive side, and at the same time, I want to enjoy being in a place where I was part of the process of building something special. That’s it. I am really calm, and I want to enjoy it, and I hope for a good night for us.’

Chelsea is facing Tottenham that sits at the top of the Premier League and undefeated in the competition after 10 games, with the west London side in the bottom half of the table.

Robert Sanchez is likely to keep his place between the sticks, Reece James if feet will feature in the clash, If not, Malo Gusto should be the preferred option to pose Tottenham’s left side some issues.
