Just a few weeks ago, Chelsea were 12 points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur but that gap has now been reduced to just 3 points.

A Tottenham win over Chelsea would see them leapfrog the Blues into the Champions League qualification places.

The game against Tottenham is a game Chelsea must not lose.

Tottenham Hotspur will be without five players for the game against Chelsea on Sunday.

Hugo Lloris (elbow) and Michel Vorm (calf) remain out of action for Spurs. Tanguy Ndombele (groin), Erik Lamela (thigh) and Ben Davies (ankle) are all out as well.

As for Chelsea, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is still some way off match fitness, while Fikayo Tomori (hip) and Olivier Giroud (ankle) are doubts.

However, this sound good news to the blues to have the opportunity to use the advantage of the injuries to secure 3 point on Sunday afternoon.
