Tottenham beat the Blues 5-3 on New Year's Day - but things could be even better this time around.

New Year's Day was unforgettable for Tottenham Hotspur. A high-octane performance saw the north London side convincingly beat Chelsea 5-3 - a victory made all the more impressive by the fact Jose Mourinho's men went on to become Premier League champions.

And yet, 11 months on, Tottenham are in a position where things could be even better this time around.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are just four points off the top of the table - with Chelsea struggling.

Based on recent form, Tottenham are clear favourites. Could supporters have imagined such a scenario back in January?

Indeed, fans would have been forgiven for thinking a 5-3 win over Chelsea was as good as it got. Spurs later lost to the west London side in the Capital One Cup final, making their league victory seem extra special.

The tables have turned so much, though, both in terms of Tottenham strengthening and Chelsea losing form, that Spurs supporters can certainly imagine an outcome even better than a two-goal win this time around.

Mourinho will want to try especially hard against Pochettino's side, of course, and may well park the bus in an attempt to hit Tottenham on the break.

Based on form, however, the north London club have the chance not only to repeat their New Year's Day heroics but better them.
