The pundits have gone for a similar outcome ahead of Tottenham's Premier League clash with the Blues on Sunday afternoon.

BBC pundit Jason Roberts and 'grumpy pundit' Rodney Marsh have both predicted a narrow Tottenham Hotspur win when Mauricio Pochettino's men face Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

The north London side host the Blues in the Premier League for the second time this calendar year, having beaten Chelsea 5-3 at White Hart Lane already in 2015.

Tottenham will have to bury the ghosts of the Capital One Cup final, however, when Jose Mourinho's men got the better of Pochettino's side.

Roberts, meanwhile, has poked fun at Chelsea's position in the Premier League table, predicting a narrow win for Spurs at the Lane on Sunday.

And former forward Marsh has gone for a similar outcome:

Tottenham fans are understandably confident going into the game. If Harry Kane can net early on, a back four containing Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen - shielded by Eric Dier - has every chance of holding out against a Chelsea side struggling for goals in the league this season.

But what has Mourinho got planned and how will the home side cope if the Blues boss sets his side out to defend and catch Pochettino's men out on the break?
