PREDICTION
Easter Sunday pairs these two London rivals together with the outcome set to have huge ramifications in the race for the top four. Chelsea know that what with the fact that they are five points behind Tottenham going into this game it is nothing short of a must win fixture.

While for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, thanks to the buffer that they have over their crosstown rivals it is more of a must not lose scenario for them. They make the short journey across the capital (probably) without their talisman Harry Kane who picked up an injury before the international break and this is something that could well play into Chelsea’s hands.

Tottenham come into this game as the form team in the Premier League but without their key man up front they are there for the taking. Their supporting cast will have to step up to the plate once more and if they do so then they will be good value to leave Stamford Bridge with a vital point; one that enhances their top four hopes while diminishing that of Chelsea’s

MEMORABLE MEETING
The tail end of the 2015-16 season saw Tottenham travel to West London needing all three points to keep their title hopes alive. Chelsea’s defence of the title was coming to an end, but they still managed to have a say in the destination of the Premier League trophy.

Tottenham raced into a 2-0 lead but then Chelsea upped their game after the restart as goals from Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard managing to restore parity for the Blues. That meant that Tottenham lost their chance of winning title while also losing their heads that evening.

Towards the final few minutes the game turned into ‘The Battle of Stamford Bridge’ with referee Mark Clattenburg having a busy time trying to restore any semblance of order in the middle of the pitch.
