Chelsea 1-3 Tottenham: Premier League TV channel, live streaming online









Chelsea will know anything less than a win over Tottenham on Sunday will leave qualification for next season's Champions League a very tall order.


.



Currently sitting five points off fourth-placed Spurs, the Premier League champions must beat a top-four rival for the first time since November to close the sizeable gap.

Spurs have not won at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League era with Gary Lineker the last player to score a winner in the league for the visitors, a run stretching back to February 10, 1990.

Chelsea have recently lost to Manchester United and Manchester City but are the only team to win at Spurs' temporary home in the league this season, a Marcos Alonso double downing Wembley's temporary inhabitants in August.

The Premiership returns next weekend after a two-week international break and the highlight is the clash between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge. 

Spurs are five points clear of Chelsea in fourth place and there are just eight games left before the end of the season.

If they get a result in this game they will be all but certain of nailing down a Champions League place for next season, but a win for Chelsea would blow the top four race wide open. 

Tottenham will be without star player Harry Kane, who is injured, and the Blues will bid to capitalise. 

It should prove to be a fiercely contested game between two strong and technically gifted sides.

Team News

Chelsea have question marks over the fitness of both Thibaut Courtois (hamstring) and Andreas Christensen (fatigue) but both are expected to be fit for Sunday.

Antonio Conte could opt for Eden Hazard in the 'false nine' role again, though Alvaro Morata scored his first goal of 2018 against Leicester while Olivier Giroud found the target for France during the international break.

Elsewhere, Ross Barkley (hamstring) and David Luiz (ankle) are unlikely to feature. Ethan Ampadu (ankle) is out for the remainder of the season.



Tottenham will be without talisman Harry Kane, meaning Heung-min Son will lead the line at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs gave a vague return date of "April", but the visit of Manchester City midway through the month is a more realistic target. Erik Lamela will likely come in to take Son's usual place on the left wing, 

Otherwise, Mauricio Pochettino has just Harry Winks (ankle) on the sidelines though Toby Alderweireld's continued rehabilitation is being assessed.

Predicted line-ups
Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Moses, Fabregas, Kante, Alonso; Willian, Hazard, Pedro

Tottenham starting XI: Lloris; Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dembele, Dier; Eriksen, Alli, Lamela; Son
