Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says that his side will have an advantage against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday as they will have had longer to prepare for the match.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has claimed that his side will have an advantage against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday due to the extra two days that the club have had to prepare for the contest.

The Blues were in Champions League action on Tuesday night, opening their 2021-22 group-stage campaign with a 1-0 victory over Zenit St Petersburg at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham, though, were in Europa Conference League action on Thursday, with Nuno Espirito Santo's side playing out a 2-2 draw with French outfit Rennes.

Tuchel has said that the extra rest should be an advantage for his side, who will be looking to make it three straight wins in all competitions when they take on Spurs.

"It's good. I like it. We had a recovery day yesterday and now have two training sessions. It is good for us, it is an advantage," Tuchel told reporters.

Chelsea are currently second in the Premier League table, having picked up 10 points from their opening four matches of the 2021-22 campaign.
