The city of London will be agog as Chelsea and Tottenham battle for crucial points in the Super Sunday Premier League clash.
With the EPL title already out of reach, Chelsea will look to keep pressure on Tottenham for fourth place when the sides return to Premier League action at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte’s side have endured a difficult few weeks and a series of poor results has seen them slip five points behind Spurs, with just eight games to go.
However, a win for the Blues at home against Mauricio Pochettino’s men would reduce the deficit to just two points and ensure a tense final run in the remaining fixtures.
Chelsea won the reverse fixture 2-1 and they will glad to make it a double today.
