(Video): “It’s always a good time to play Tottenham” – Thomas Tuchel stokes London rivalry flames

Chelsea take on Tottenham on Sunday in their first London derby of the season, and Spurs are looking injury-stricken ahead of the game.

Thomas Tuchel was asked in his press conference today whether this made it a good time to play the game, and he simply replied that it’s “always a good time to play Tottenham,” because all fans and players look forward to these kinds of grudge matches.

He’s got a point there – no matter how strong or how weak Spurs look, there are few games that get us more pumped up than these ones.
