Can Tottenham justify their favourites tag or will struggling Chelsea rebound?

The ESPN FC panel are stunned by the rumours that this could be Antonio Conte's second and final season with Chelsea.
Dele Alli hit home two goals in a span of nine minutes for Spurs against Chelsea last season.
Huddersfield hope to continue winning ways versus Newcastle, while Spurs entertain reigning Premier League champs Chelsea.
Chelsea correspondent Liam Twomey updates on the aftermath of Chelsea's loss to Burnley and how Antonio Conte will line up at Spurs next weekend.

It's only the second weekend of the Premier League season, yet it feels like Tottenham's meeting with Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday could prove one of the decisive matches of 2017-18. If that sounds ludicrous, consider the various ways this contest is of importance.

It is a meeting between last season's top two. It is also Tottenham's first official game at their temporary home and, therefore, will set the tone for a year-long experience at the national stadium.

And it is of particular importance...

Diego Costa saga, Chelsea's depth issues have Antonio Conte frustrated

Sid Lowe details Diego Costa's desire to return to Atletico, and the FC crew discuss his relationship with Chelsea.

Chelsea are reigning Premier League champions, but listen to Antonio Conte speak and you wouldn't know it. The notoriously intense Italian looks frustrated and worn down, the opposite of refreshed after a summer that has prompted more grimaces than smiles at Stamford Bridge.

ESPN FC runs through the five main reasons why Conte is less than satisfied.

The Costa Mess

Chelsea always knew they would face a big decision on Diego Costa's future this summer. He has never extended the contract he signed...

Troubled champions Chelsea already in crisis ahead of Wembley visit vs. Spurs

The ESPN FC panel are stunned by the rumours that this could be Antonio Conte's second and final season with Chelsea.

John Brewin previews the weekend's Premier League action and highlights five key storylines in this edition of W2W4.

Troubled champions appear in crisis

Their wounds have been self-inflicted, but how quickly can Chelsea heal themselves? It has been a horrible week for the Premier League champions. Last week's 3-2 loss to Burnley was an opening-weekend disaster, from Gary Cahill beginning life as captain of the club by being sent off after 14 minutes to Cesc Fabregas getting himself dismissed...

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte only has himself to blame for club's woes

No club does boom and bust quite like Chelsea. Up one minute, down the next, with a succession of managers usually paying the price for any hint of a downturn with their jobs.

So, after an opening day 3-2 defeat to lowly Burnley with nine men, there should be enough warnings from history for Antonio Conte to feel slightly uneasy about his position at Stamford Bridge as the Premier League champions prepare to visit Wembley this weekend for what has become a crucial clash against last season's runners-up,...

Chelsea board must take responsibility as club struggle to wake from slumber

The ESPN FC panel are stunned by the rumours that this could be Antonio Conte's second and final season with Chelsea.

By virtue of a shock opening day home defeat to Burnley, Chelsea have given their three main rivals for their Premier League crown a three-point head start in the title race.

Having witnessed the Blues' stunning 3-2 loss to a side among the preseason favourites for relegation, Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United clinically dispatched their respective opponents without conceding a goal between them. City and Spurs both won 2-0 on the road against promoted sides Brighton and Newcastle,...

Chelsea, Tottenham both coming to terms with lack of depth

Dele Alli hit home two goals in a span of nine minutes for Spurs against Chelsea last season.
ESPN's Liam Twomey discusses Diego Costa's decision to force through a move to Atletico Madrid this summer.
The ESPN FC panel are stunned by the rumours that this could be Antonio Conte's second and final season with Chelsea.
The FC panel debate whether or not Diego Costa still has a future at Chelsea.

They are officially the best and second-best teams in the country. When Chelsea and Tottenham meet on Sunday, they will revisit last season's title race, yet the notion of "first and second" is pertinent.

Chelsea and Spurs prospered last season because of the prowess in their respective first XIs, yet they have arguably the weakest second-string sides of the big six. That has a more immediate impact for Chelsea -- deprived of the suspended Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill as well as the injured...
