Chelsea head into this game knowing that they haven’t been beaten at home by Spurs in the league since 1990, which will give them extra confidence that they can maintain and potentially improve on their Premier League lead.

The Blues dropped points against Sunderland last weekend, which will make them determined to react in a positive manner and Jose Mourinho has already made it clear that his team will be going all out for victories.

Tottenham will play to the underdogs tag but Mauricio Pochettino will be eager for his side to make an impression and give the club’s fans something to sing loudly about.

A win for Tottenham moves them onto 23 points, just two behind Manchester United as they look to keep the pressure on with the race for a Champions League place next season.
