Chelsea will host Tottenham on matchday 27 of the Premier League. The London side is fourth in the league, but they have only one point more than the Tottenham, who are pursuing the direct qualification for next season's Champions League. The Stamford Bridge game is scheduled to start at 12:30 on Saturday.
The 167th clash between Chelsea and Tottenham will mark the return of José Mourinho to a stadium where he was very happy and where he won the Premier League on three occasions. He is responsible for some of the 71 victories that Chelsea has against Spurs in the h2h, against 54 defeats. The Blues won the last three meetings against Tottenham, who won the three previous meetings.
Chelsea enters the field with the advantage of not having played in the middle of the week and with a physical advantage compared to Tottenham. The Blues are going through a less good phase of the season - they won just one of the last five outings, in a series that also includes two defeats. Chelsea's defense continues to worry the fans and the 36 goals conceded in the Premier League reflect that - they are the worst defense of the top eight.
Tottenham lost last Wednesday's game against Leipzig, but in domestic competitions the North London team has been experiencing a good moment, only understated by the injuries of many important players. Before the match against the Germans, the Spurs managed a series of seven consecutive games without losing, having achieved five victories in that period. The whites come from a series of four consecutive games without losing away from home, something they can use as motivation to take points from Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea: Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marco van Ginkel are injured.
Tottenham: Heung-min Son, Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko are injured.
We believe in a balanced game at Stamford Bridge.
