When Tottenham Hotspur face Chelsea this evening (Sunday), they will be well aware of the fact that a victory could help them reclaim their place at the top of the Premier League table.
It will also be the return of The Special One at Stamford Bridge as Jose Mourinho hopes to continue his side’s majestic run of form.
Indeed, the north London giants are heading into this game on the back of a five game-winning run in all competitions.
The Lilywhites are also unbeaten in the league since the opening day defeat to Everton back in September.
However, Chelsea happen to be the second most in-form team in the Premier League at the moment, having secured three back to back wins since their goalless draw with Manchester United.
In addition, they are currently in a six-game winning streak in all competitions – a run that includes a narrow 2-1 victory over Rennes in midweek.
Such momentum has helped the Blues make up some ground in the league table, with the west London giants trailing only behind Liverpool and Spurs heading into this weekend’s round of fixtures.
In fact, a win today should be enough for Frank Lampard’s men to at least overtake their London rivals, who are leading only by two points.
Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell, Kovačić, Kanté, Mount, Ziyech, Abraham, Werner
Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Aurier, Rodon, Dier, Reguilón, Sissoko, Højbjerg, Son, Ndombele, Bergwijn, Kane
Kick off is at 17:30 (GMT +1).
