Match Preview: Spurs Vs Chelsea


Chelsea have Pedro back from suspension as they bid for a record 14 consecutive wins in a single top-flight season.

Nemanja Matic was rested for the win over Stoke and could earn a recall.

Tottenham defenders Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen could return to the starting line-up after they missed the win over Watford through suspension.

Erik Lamela remains out with a hip problem but Mousa Dembele, who was rested against Watford, is expected to return in midfield.


Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: “Chelsea arrive in very good shape – us too after the last few games.

“It will be a very tough game and a great opportunity for us to try to stop them and try to reduce the gap.

“It’s important, I think it’s important for us and for the Premier League to try to win and try to stop them and reduce the gap.”

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte: “Now it’s not easy after 13 wins in a row you face teams that want to beat you not only to take three points, but for many reasons.

“It’s more difficult. We must know this.

“I think it’s very difficult to repeat this run. To win 16 games, draw one game and lose two games is a great achievement for us.”
