Kick Off: Saturday, October 26, 2016. 17:30 GMT

Venue: Stamford Bridge

 

Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, a London derby game that always leaves you on the edge of your seat.

Chelsea currently top the league table with 28 points from 12 league games, while Spurs are 5th with 24 points.

While Chelsea have won their last six games without conceding a goal, Spurs have drawn 4 of their last 5 games, winning just one — a late victory against West Ham last weekend.

Both games between these two sides last season, ended in a stalemate. A 0-0 draw at White Hart Lane and a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The last 8 league games between the two rivals have seen Chelsea come out victorious on 3 occasions while Spurs have won just once, and 4 ended in a draw.

It’s no longer news that Tottenham haven’t won Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League era. It’s been 26 years and 29 games since Tottenham won at the Bridge.

Chelsea have played 590 minutes of top-flight football since conceding their last goal in the 3-0 defeat at Arsenal on 24 September.

The Blues have earned 15 points from their six home games this season – more than any other top-flight team.

Tottenham remain unbeaten in their 12 league games this season (W6, D6).

However, their win over West Ham last week is their only victory in nine games in all competitions (D5, L3).

Spurs currently have the best defence in the league, having conceded only 8 goals. While Chelsea have conceded 9.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
