Redknapp believes that the club is to blame for their present condition, as they failed to build on last seasons success, leaving Antonio Conte in a very Unfavorable position.

"Chelsea are wounded, you couldn't ask for a better time to play them," he told Sky Sports .

"You just feel a few of them are getting their parachutes out and making excuses.

"You're hearing things about Conte, 'He's not a great man-manager.' He was phenomenal last season.

"All of a sudden there's a lot coming out of Chelsea that wasn't there last year so Tottenham need to make it count and put the Wembley talk to bed.

"This game, without overstating it, is almost their season. If they can get a result everyone then stops talking about their record at Wembley.

"It's so important they start well because if they lose on Sunday the talk will linger for another couple of weeks but the fact they didn't play well in Europe there last season shouldn't concern them.

"There's a lot of negative energy around Chelsea. I've been so surprised by how they have managed this pre-season.

"When you don't play in Europe you can afford to have a thin squad. But then you go into the Champions League, sell one of your best players in Matic and you have a problem with Costa, your main striker.

"They have weakened themselves when they should have been kicking on, it's incredible, but this start had been coming after their preparations.

"Stamford Bridge should have been buzzing on Saturday but instead they were getting booed at half-time. It's incredible how that can turn around so quickly but it seems to happen at Chelsea.

"As soon as the manager gets any power, that's when it seems they chop him down. At the moment it looks like the club is almost undermining Conte."
