Chelsea lost 3-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates on 24 Sptember. Since then, the Blues have won all their fixtures in the Premier League and their latest win over Stoke City has seen them extend it to 13 league matches in a row.

The Blues have a chance to equal Arsenal's record of 14 wins when they take on the Gunners' arch-rivals on Wednesday evening. A victory at White Hart Lane will see Chelsea become the joint holders with their London rivals.

Antonio Conte will be hoping his side can walk away from north London with three points in their first fixture of 2017. In the last five matches, Chelsea have conceded two goals, which came against Stoke in their previous fixture.

What managers say

Mauricio Pochettino: "It is in our head to win the game and to get three points, but to close the gap and not as revenge for last season. Always Chelsea, Arsenal, are our enemies and it is true for our fans it's a very special game. But the most important thing is to get three points. The chapter is closed for us," Pochettino was quoted as saying by the Express.

There is a player who is very important for them now, Wanyama. He is a really good player. He has quality during the game, stamina, work rate and shows great commitment for the team. I like these things about him. There is a lot of players who are improving a lot, they are young and improving," Conte was quoted as saying by
