match preview:Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur






Chelsea have won only three of nine league games this year, with Antonio Conte having acknowledged Tottenham must be beaten if they are to reach the top four. They will fret over whether Thibaut Courtois and Andreas Christensen will be involved, while taking comfort in the knowledge Spurs, who have suffered one domestic defeat since November, have not won at Stamford Bridge since February 1990 and could be without Harry Kane. This has the makings of a tense occasion. Dominic Fifield
