CHE vs TOT – Here’s the only issue Blue could face
Chelsea will play against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, that will be Thomas Tuchel’s 5th EPL game this season.
Spurs have lost only a game this season, they allowed Crystal Palace to thrash them 3-0 at Selhurst Park.
Chelsea has not lost any game, they are still unbeaten in all competitions.
However, Nuno Espirito(former Wolves manager) has been so impressive this season.
FA has selected Paul Tierney to officiate this crucial game on Sunday has Chelsea host Spurs
Paul Tierney is one of the top EPL referees who officiate big games.
Moreover, unlike Taylor, is known for giving out too many yellow cards and that might affect Chelsea.

Paul Tierney sent off Andreas Christensen out of the pitch last season after his incident with Sadio Mane.
He has also issued yellow cards to Chelsea players in past games.
Winning the EPL seems to be Thomas Tuchel’s main priority this season. The blues should try as much as they could to avoid any form of problem.

Players like Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azplicueta will never allow any opponent to shout at their teammate instead they will pick up a card.
Blues defenders should be wary of Paul Tierney on Sunday, this referee has developed the habit of issuing multiple yellow cards in the game.
Romelu Lukaku has been calm since he returned to Stamford Bridge, he nearly fought with Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season at Serie A. I believe he will also not allow an opponent to touch his teammate too
