Chelsea face a crucial fixture in the race for UEFA Champions League qualification on Sunday when they make a first-ever trip to the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to take on Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side.

The Blues are just three points clear of their London rivals and defeat would see them drop out of the English Premier League’s top four.

The home side go into the match on the back of consecutive league wins. Spurs have improved under the guidance of new boss Mourinho since his arrival at the club and have recorded impressive victories over both Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The North Londoners go into their clash with Chelsea without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, defender Ben Davies and midfielder Erik Lamela due to their ongoing injury problems. Summer signing Tanguy Ndombele is doubtful as he continues to recover from a groin injury.

Chelsea make the short trip across the capital without midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek who remains on the sidelines while Ross Barkley is also unlikely to feature. Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud have been declared fit to travel with the squad to the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 4.30pm on Sunday afternoon and will be screened live on Sky Sports  Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
