Sergio Reguilon eyeing Chelsea win on the anniversary of Tottenham arrival

According to the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur defender Sergio Reguilon is hoping to mark the first anniversary of his arrival at the club with a win over arch-rivals Chelsea.

The 24-year-old Reguilon signed for Tottenham last summer, jetting out to London from Madrid on September 19, 2020, along with Gareth Bale to complete the transfer.

Reguilon then went on to make his debut ten days later in a Carabao Cup clash against Chelsea, who Tottenham play later tonight. It turned out to be a memorable occasion for the Spaniard, as he set up a goal before Spurs beat the Blues on penalty shootouts.

And Reguilon is hoping that the Lilywhites are able to repeat the result on the anniversary of his transfer. The left-back insists that it will not be easy against an in-form Chelsea side, but claims that with the support of the fans, Tottenham can bag a win.

“I remember in the first half, I had too much energy and the first goal was a little mistake by me. But in the second half, I gave the assist to Coco [Erik Lamela] and after we won on penalties. It was fantastic.

“And we know that if we win this time, it would be an important victory. Chelsea are playing very good football, they are the Champions League winners. They are doing a lot of good things and we know it will be difficult. But we are in our stadium, with our fans, our people and, last year, that did not happen. Football changes with the fans.”

Tottenham started the Premier League campaign with three wins in a row, but succumbed to a shock defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend. That was followed by another disappointing draw against Rennes in the UEFA Europa Conference League. A return to winning ways, thus, is very much essential for Nuno Espirito Santo & co.
