“I think we’re going to go there and absolutely destroy them” – Jamie O’Hara makes confident Tottenham claim ahead of derby against Chelsea


Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara has backed his old club to ‘absolutely destroy’ Chelsea in their Sunday’s (August 14) Premier League meeting. Having bagged a massive 4-1 win over Southampton on Saturday (August 6), Tottenham Hotspur will look to extend their winning run when travel to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Chelsea, who narrowly escaped with a 1-0 win (Jorginho penalty) from Everton in their Premier League opener, will try to produce a more sure- footed performance at home against their local rivals. Analyzing the match, O’Hara could only see one winner, with him wholeheartedly backing Antonio Conte’s side to come out on top against the west London outfit. Speaking on talkSPORT (Via HITC ), he claimed:

“I think it’s a good time to play Chelsea. You’re still a little bit on the hangover of last season. I think we’re going to go there and absolutely destroy them.”

While Tottenham are looking like the more in- form team heading into the London derby, their track record is rather poor against the Blues. The north London outfit could not win any of their last seven Premier League matches against them, drawing once and losing on the remaining six occasions.
