This Saturday Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in a huge derby class which could go some way to deciding who qualifies for the Champions League this season.
Both London sides are still very much alive in the race for European qualification and there is currently just one point between them with the Blues sitting in fourth and Spurs in fifth.
But all of that could change on Saturday and an update from the Monday night clash between Chelsea and Manchester United could be a determining factor.
Lampard has confirmed that N’Golo Kante’s injury, which forced him off the field in the first half, doesn’t look good and while there’s no official confirmation just yet, the midfielder could miss Saturday’s clash altogether.
Needless to say, that was excellent news to many Spurs fans…
What a scoop https://t.co/WTA3NhQ9iH

But not everyone is all that optimistic as quite a few supporters believe Kante can still recover before Saturday and, given their luck, he most probably will play.
For that reason, they are urging everyone not to get carried away just yet…
We all know they will all be fit

He’ll be fine we all know that

And finally, there were also some fans who are more concerned about Willian as the Brazilian is someone who worries them a more than the French international.
Considering he scored a brace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the last time the two sides met, it’s easy to understand that standpoint.
Some believe he will put in anther world class display on Saturday and, for that reason, one fan is even hoping that he gets injured next.
A touch sinister, perhaps…
Tbh he has been their weak link in midfield this season
Anyway itll likely be Willian who has his ‘world class’ game v us ..
