Mauricio Pochettino has sent a warning to his Chelsea centre-backs ahead of Monday night’s clash with Tottenham away from Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are up against a Spurs side, who are unbeaten after 10 games in the Premier League this season.

Heung-min Son is Tottenham’s captain, but beyond that, the South Korean is also arguably their biggest threat upfront, and will be a handful for Chelsea’s centre-backs to handle after netting eight times in ten outings so far this season.

When asked about the threat the forward poses against Chelsea, Poch however, had a good answer for reporters, expressing confidence in his players to keep him quiet.

“I’m not going to play centre-back. My centre-back needs to stop him,” the Argentine said.

“We know him, and he’s a fantastic player—one of the best players in the Premier League. I hope it’s not going to be a good night for him.”
