Two of the Premier League’s most in form sides meet at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening when Chelsea face Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues are flying high after a run of six straight league victories but Antonio Conte’s side will face a stern test from a Tottenham Hotspur side which are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League this season.
Chelsea go into the match with no new injury concerns and Blues boss Conte is expected to name the same side which recorded a narrow 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough at The Riverside Stadium on Sunday.
The Blues have a virtually injury free squad of players available for selection with long term absentee Kurt Zouma now having returned to full fitness while both Diego Costa and Eden Hazard came through the match against Boro unscathed following recent minor knocks.
Tottenham Hotspur make the short trip across London with a number of defensive problems. Manager Mauricio Pochettino must do without full back Danny Rose who serves a one match suspension while Ben Davies remains sidelined through injury. Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld is also out after picking up a knee injury.
The two clubs last met at Stamford Bridge in May when The Blues ended Spurs’ feint title hopes after playing their part in a thunderous 2-2 draw. The visitors threw away a two goal lead in a turbulent match which produced a number of controversial incidents and scuffles including an apparent eye gouging incident and touchline melees.
