The last two meetings between both sides have seen Chelsea come top on both occasions winning with a margin of two goals. The last meeting was on December 22, 2019, at Stamford bridge.
Both sides will be looking forward to a win, after their midweek losses. Chelsea lost at home to their rivals Manchester United by 2-0, while Jose Mourinho’s men lost to Redbull Leipzig on Wednesday Champions League clash.
Speaking at the press conference when asked about his game plan? “you always try and prepare and let the players know how we want to approach games” said Chelsea manager. Oliver Giroud is set to start the Saturday encounter for Chelsea.
Tottenham hotspurs hope to win this fixture and are unbeaten in the last seven games in the English Premier League. Chelsea is without a win in their last four matches.
Mourinho said “it is a very important game of course but in normal circumstances, I wouldn’t say it’s a crucial match, a must-win or something like that because there are still lots of points to play for. There are a lot of teams there (on the table) trying to fight for fourth and fifth.
A win against Chelsea will see Tottenham leapfrog the Blues back into the top four, while Frank Lampard will be looking outwit his former coach once more.
