Spurs vs Chelsea: Everything you need to know
In one of the most anticipated Premier League matches of the season so far, Tottenham Hotspur play hosts to table-toppers Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night – in Football FanCast’s Fixture in Focus.
The Blues are five points clear at the top of the standings and enjoying a brilliant season under the leadership of Antonio Conte, with the likes of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa back to their best after below-par 2015/2016 campaigns.
Conte’s men are currently on a 13-match winning run in the top flight – with their last victory coming against Stoke on Saturday – but they will face a tough task to extend that to 14 when they come up against London rivals Spurs, who are in fine form themselves.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have taken all three points in four of their last five league fixtures, scoring 18 in the process, and Harry Kane and Dele Alli are in particularly good goalscoring form.
So how will the match pan out? Who are the favourites? Who is absent through injury and who’ll prove to be the ultimate influence on the scoreline?
Well, consider this your all-in-one preview ahead of Wednesday’s meet, covering injury news, form, key battles, curious statistics and much, much more!
