Tottenham have won their last two league games 4-1 and have secured victory in their last four. Spurs are also unbeaten in their last three home league meetings with Chelsea, including a memorable 5-3 win this time two years ago.
Chelsea’s 4-2 win over Stoke saw them match Arsenal’s 13-match Premier League winning run and victory against Spurs would see them set a new record. They have conceded just one goal in their last six away league games – a Gary Cahill own goal against Manchester City – and remain tough to break down.
Spurs have hit form at just the right time, though, and could end Chelsea’s winning run in front of their own fans on Wednesday night. Naijabet.com

Erik Lamela is a doubt with an ongoing hip problem, but is Pochettino’s only concern here.
