The two London clubs will go head-to-head in search of the maximum three points to back their own aspirations for the season.

Brace yourself for an exciting Premier League derby as Tottenham Hotspur host Chelsea at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. The former are looking to maintain their position in the top four and secure a Champions League spot, while the Blues are aiming to turn around their disappointing season and finish as high up the table as possible.

In the upcoming derby, Tottenham have a chance to extend their lead over fifth-placed Newcastle, who are in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester United on the same day. The club's manager Antonio Conte will be absent again as he recuperates from his surgery, with Cristian Stellini taking charge for the third time this season. Stellini has a perfect record so far and will be looking to keep it that way after Spurs returned to winning ways against West Ham United last weekend.

Despite their recent form, the Lilywhites have struggled against Chelsea at their new stadium, losing all three home Premier League games against their London rivals without scoring a single goal. This makes Sunday's match a crucial opportunity for them to break that streak and extend their lead over their rivals.

On the other hand, Chelsea are under immense pressure to revive their season after a shocking defeat to bottom-placed Southampton last weekend and a midweek Champions League loss to Borussia Dortmund. The club's manager Graham Potter will be looking for a response from his freshly assembled squad, with fans of the club already asking for his imminent sack.

Under the English coach, Chelsea has managed just one win in all competitions since 2023 began and have been able to score only three times. The poor run of form has left them occupying 10th in the Premier League with 15 fixtures to go. At the Tottenham Stadium, Chelsea could achieve the unprecedented by recording an away win that would complete four in a row in the league - the first of its kind for the Blues in their history with Spurs.

Key stats and head-to-head record: Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea

  • Tottenham has struggled historically against Chelsea, winning only seven out of 61 Premier League games against them and failing to win in their past eight top-flight meetings.

  • Chelsea aims to join Arsenal (1952-55) and Manchester United (2001-07) as the only teams to win four consecutive away league games against Tottenham. However, Spurs have a chance to claim four points in a season from Chelsea for only the second time in the Premier League, matching their achievement in the 2008-09 season.

  • Additionally, Spurs could break their club record of 23 consecutive home league games without a draw.

  • Chelsea have won only one of their ten matches in all competitions in 2023 and just two of their last 14 league games. Avoiding a sixth game without a win in all competitions is crucial for them, as they have not experienced such a streak since November to December 2012.

  • Chelsea's current nine away games without a victory in all competitions is their longest such run since a 17-match streak from April 2000 to January 2001.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea team news

According to Cristian Stellini, there are no new concerns for Tottenham after the West Ham United game, and the team will have the same players available as before. However, injured players are still progressing at the same pace, with Rodrigo Bentancur set to miss up to nine months of action after his ACL surgery. Hugo Lloris may also miss the remainder of the campaign, and there is no update on the conditions of Yves Bissouma and Ryan Sessegnon.

As for Chelsea, Cesar Azpilicueta has been under observation for concussion since being kicked in the head by Southampton's Sekou Mara. Except for Armando Broja and Edou Mendy, Potter's squad may soon be fully available, including long-absent players N'Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic.
