KICK-OFF AT STAMFORD BRIDGE: Chelsea 0-0 Tottenham Hotspurs

As for Tottenham Hotspurs, no favourable news for manager Antonio Conte as Son Heung-Min is out while Lucas Moura is only good enough for a place on the bench. Meanwhile, two-goal hero Steven Bergwijn is rewarded with a starting berth for his displays in injury time against Leicester City last time out.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has named his side set to take on their neighbours from the North. Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi are in the line-up.

Chelsea should fancy their chances over their North London rivals, having overcome them 3-0 on aggregate in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup but Antonio Conte and his lads will be looking to seize their opportunity to haul themselves right into the mix for Champions League qualification.

The Blues have seen their fortunes overturned in the space of two months, from table toppers to a fight to retain their place on the Champions League slots in the Premier League. What makes this evening’s London derby more important is that Spurs can close the gap between them and the Blues to a mere five points, with four games in hand. Chelsea are condemned to win this one.

A wonderful evening to you soccer fans! You are on to our LIVE coverage of the Super Sunday fixture between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs set to go down at Stamford Bridge.
