Chris Sutton has predicted that Tottenham will continue to pile further misery on his former club Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday.
Although Spurs will be playing their first home Premier League fixture away from White Hart Lane, Sutton, 44, has backed Mauricio Pochettino’s men to turn out as 2-1 victors in the all-London clash.
The former England international striker, who had a fairly poor one-year stint at Chelsea in 1999/00 when he scored just three goals in all competitions, had his predictions shown on BT Sport Score’s official Twitter account on Saturday.

Chelsea suffered an embarrassing 3-2 home defeat to Burnley last week on the opening day of the campaign after they were reduced to nine men following red cards to Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas.
Tottenham had no such worries in their trip to Newcastle, when they ran out comfortable 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Dele Alli and Ben Davies.
Sunday’s clash is not only a repeat of last season’s FA Cup semi-final, which was won by Antonio Conte’s side, but is also a battle between the two sides who scrapped for the 2016/17 Premier League title.
Each side won their home league fixtures against the other last term, yet it remains to be seen whether or not Spurs will adapt to life at Wembley following the demolition of White Hart Lane.
