Kick-off: Sunday, April 1, 2018. 15:00 GMT

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Sunday’s London derby will see the fourth on the table go away to the fifth on the table as the fight for top four intensifies.

Chelsea are five points behind Spurs, and will be aiming for a victory in this game.

Chelsea’s run of four  losses in the last six league games is the reason Chelsea are out of the top four, while Tottenham are in good form in the league as they have won four and  drawn one in the last five games.

Chelsea have won the last two games against Spurs, and the Blues won the first meeting this season at Wembley 2-1 away from home.

Chelsea are unbeaten in 27 home league matches against Spurs – and 30 in all competitions – since a 2-1 defeat in February 1990 (W18, D9).

Tottenham’s 25 games at Stamford Bridge without winning in the Premier League is the most that one team has played at the same ground without a single victory.

Spurs have surrendered the lead on each of their last two league visits to Stamford Bridge, drawing 2-2 from 2-0 up in May 2016, and losing 2-1 after Christian Eriksen gave them the advantage last season.

Chelsea’s form of late have been awful and the Blues are looking to secure back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since December.

Chelsea have won only two of their eight league fixtures this season against the other top-six clubs (W2, D3, L3).

Willian’s 13 goals in all competitions this season is his best return in a single campaign for Chelsea.

Spurs are the only team with an unbeaten Premier League record in 2018 and Chelsea must be in the best form to get the three points on Sunday.

Chelsea must get the three points on Sunday or else the Blues might miss the Champions Lleague next season?
