Chelsea enter the crucial league fixture with a 3-1 away win over Fulham. Andre Schurrle was the star of the match for the Blues as his second half hat-trick over the Cottagers saw Jose Mourinho's side seal a comfortable victory.

Eden Hazard played a crucial role in Chelsea's win over Fulham, as his two brilliant assists helped Schurrle put the ball past the Cottagers keepers. The former Real Madrid manager has not lost a league game at the Bridge during his two spells and would be hoping to extend the run against the north London club.

Spurs on the other hand come into this game after a narrow 1-0 win over Cardiff City at White Hart Lane. Summer signing Roberto Soldado broke his recent goal drought as the Spain international's goal in the 28th minute saw Tim Sherwood's side seal three points.

Spurs are fifth in the league table with 53 points from 28 games, trailing fourth place Manchester City by four points. However, the Citizens still have two games in hand. Chelsea are on top of the table with 63 points and could extend their lead if they register a victory over Spurs.

What Managers Say

Jose Mourinho: "I was not in the same position because, when I got my first job as a manager, I got it from not being in the club in another position. When I went to Benfica, I went from my house to Benfica. Not from the office or the under-21s or assistant coach. I arrived in the club to start my job. Sherwood has been in the club for a long time, so it's different."

Tim Sherwood: "Mourinho, as he has proved, goes into a club, gets backed by the chairman and buys the players to win instantly. I would see myself as more of a manager who builds something over time but I realise at the moment that is not possible because I have been dealt a hand here and I have to try to win games."
