Spurs have established themselves as Premier League title contenders this season.

Pedro has admitted that Chelsea face a very tough challenge if they hope to get a positive result when they meet Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Monday, the London Evening Standard reports.

Mauricio Pochettino's men will travel to the champions hoping that their Premier League title hopes are still alive depending on how Leicester City get on against Manchester United on Sunday.

And the Spaniard has outlined what he is expecting to see from a Spurs side that has threatened to succeed the Blues as title winners this season.

"They put a lot of crosses into the box and get a lot of people on the end of them. In addition to that, they are a very organised team and will make it very hard for us when we play them," he told the London Evening Standard.

Even if the Foxes manage to pick up the result they need to secure the title at Old Trafford, Pochettino will be reminding his players ahead of the Chelsea game that they need to switch their attention to securing an automatic qualification spot for next season's Champions League. 

But if Claudio Ranieri's men fail to win against the Red Devils, then Spurs will need no reminder that a victory on Monday will breathe a little more life into the title race, and Chelsea will need no reminder that their task of picking up three points will be much tougher.
