Chelsea play their final game of pre-season on Wednesday night when they host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge as part of the Mind Series mini tournament. It's been a winning pre-season for the Blues and Thomas Tuchel. Three wins from three heading into their last friendly before their campaign gets underway in Belfast next Wednesday in the UEFA Super Cup against Villarreal.
Our last official preseason friendly is the first at the Bridge this summer, and the first since winning the Champions League final on May 29. Since there was no actual victory parade due to the pandemic, the trophy will be shown around the stadium prior to kick-off today. That should...

It was already a celebratory evening at Stamford Bridge, with the stadium nearly full for the first time in a long time (minus the areas still under construction for the installation of rail seating) and the Champions League trophy paraded around prior to kick-off. And then the match kicked-off and Chelsea, buoyed by the home crowd, absolutely dominated Spurs for the first 45 minutes.
Chelsea wrapped up its official preseason festivities in front of a near-full crowd at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. The Blues jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead against Tottenham in the first half via a classy Hakim Ziyech finish. The Moroccan Magician doubled the home side’s advantage 30 minutes later, immediately following the restart, with a nice deflected goal that found the far corner. It was a glorified training from there on as Thomas Tuchel made eight more changes over the remainder of the half, bringing the total for the match to 10. Edouard Mendy was the only one to play the entire 90′ and see out the 2-2 draw.
It feels a little weird playing your two biggest rivals in the preseason, but with Covid limiting travel, it probably makes a lot of sense to stay as close to home as possible. As such, Tottenham Hotspur will engage in a pair of friendlies against Chelsea and Arsenal ahead of the quickly approaching season.
Chelsea concluded their pre-season by sharing the spoils in a 2-2 draw with Spurs at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. The Champions of Europe paraded 'Ol' Big Ears' in front of their fans for the first time before treating them to a tasty affair with glimpses of sheer quality, particularly in the first half.

Chelsea have taken the lead against a lackluster Tottenham through Hakim Ziyech! After a brilliant interception by N’golo Kanté in midfield, the Moroccan magician draws first blood with a superb strike just outside the penalty box. There was no hesitation and Ziyech continues to do well in preseason. 1-0!
Timo Werner scored Chelsea’s second of the night after a brilliant pass by Hakim Ziyech finds the striker, who goes on to round the Tottenham keeper and cooly slots in. However, the goal was unjustly disallowed for offside, even though Werner was clearly on. The one time VAR would have proven useful it’s nowhere to be found. Typical!
Chelsea has a new king of preseason as Hakim Ziyech adds a second to the tally after an ice cold finish. Marcos Alonso initially did well to get the ball to Christian Pulisic in the box and the latter’s reverse pass then again finds Ziyech, who masterfully slots it into the bottom corner. 2-0!
Having beaten Arsenal with a youthful line-up, Al Hain-Cole expects Tuchel's reinforced team to prove too strong for a Spurs side missing Kane.
