Tottenham host Chelsea in an all-London derby at the White Hart Lane on 29 November as Mauricio Pochettino's men look to pour further pressure on a reeling Chelsea side. The Blues are currently 15th in the league.

Spurs come into the game having battered West Ham 4-1 in the previous fixture and will be looking to take a temporary lead over Arsenal, who play later.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 12pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 1 HD.


Tottenham have managed some good results against their London rivals this season, winning their games against West Ham and Crystal Palace, while drawing away to Arsenal. Spurs will be confident ahead of their game against Chelsea, given their run of results off late and the downward spiral that Chelsea are in at the moment.

A win here will take them to 27 points, one above Arsenal, with whom they are competing for a place in the top four. Pochettino will be worried about the fatigue factor, having had to travel to Azerbaijan to play Qarabag in the Europa League which, given the short time frame of recovery, would leave them tired.

The manager has already pleaded with the FA to look into the fixture list and help teams compete better in Europe, where they have been easily overwhelmed by teams from Europe's other leagues.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are in free-fall at the moment, with Jose Mourinho struggling to extract the best out of the current team. Their thumping win over Maccabi Tel Aviv has done little to repose the supporters' faith in the team, who are currently struggling in 15th spot, with a goal difference of (-)6.

Mourinho will be buoyed by the win over Norwich City last weekend, which ended a disastrous run of form in the league, having lost consecutive games against West Ham, Stoke City and Liverpool. The Blues will take inspiration from the fact that their only win against a team in the top four this season has come against their Spurs' north London rivals Arsenal at the Stamford Bridge.

A repeat here would do the team a whole world of good along with strengthening their chances of getting back into the top four.

What managers say

Mauricio Pochettino: "Chelsea have very good players and a great manager. It's always difficult to speak about another team because when you are outside that club you do not know what is going on and it is difficult to analyse. Sometimes teams have bad results and that can change a very good team. But they have time to recover and come back still this season. They also have extra days to prepare for our match. I am expecting a very tough game because they have very good players."

Jose Mourinho: "[On Hazard]I like a number 10 to score goals. I like a number 10 to get in the box. I like a number 10 to score Oscar goals against Maccabi. A number 10 for me is an eight-and-a-half when the team loses the ball and a nine-and-a-half when the team has the ball. In my first period here we played without a number 10. We played with two number eights. In a system of two midfield players and a number 10, I demand a lot from a number 10. Every position is important, but it's an important position."
