By Harry Sykes
Stan Collymore thinks that Tottenham and Chelsea will share the spoils in one of the season’s biggest games on Sunday afternoon.
The striker turned pundit also said that given a choice of the two strikers, that he’d take Harry Kane over Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata.
Tottenham will be looking to get a fast start at Wembley Stadium, as they look to shake off what’s been called a potential hurdle for them in this season’s Premier League.
And, in his column in the Mirror, pundit Stan Collymore believes that they will have to make do with a point against the defending champions.
“Can Tottenham silence the talk of a Wembley hoodoo at the first attempt and will Chelsea manager Conte get the reaction he needs from his champions?” Collymore said.

“I’m thinking we might see a draw, which would probably go someway towards answering both of those questions in the positive.”
That followed a tweet from Collymore where he said he thought the score will be 1-1.
Southampton 0 West Ham 0
Stoke 0 Arsenal 2
Huddersfield 1 Newcastle 1
Spurs 1 Chelsea 1
Man City 3 Everton 1.

Collymore also talked about the battle of the two big strikers – Alvaro Morata for Chelsea and Harry Kane for Tottenham.
He said that only one of them has proved himself in the global game, with Morata scoring for Spain, Real Madrid and Juventus.
Collymore added that we were still waiting to see if Kane can deliver at the “elite level”.
However, given a choice between the two strikers, Collymore has said that he would pick Kane, just.
“I was asked last week whether I’d rather have Morata or Kane in my side, and it certainly had me thinking. As a former forward, I’ve got a lot of respect for them both and, while I plumped for Kane, just, it really all depends on what style of football a manager favours.
He also added that Morata is “quicker than Kane, his movement off the shoulder of a central defender is much faster, so he’d seriously benefit you that way.”
Tottenham will kick-off their home campaign at 4pm on Sunday afternoon.
