Chelsea have a crucial Premier League clash against Tottenham on Sunday, and it’s a game Chelsea must win to increase the gap on Tottenham who could topple Chelsea on the table if they win their outstanding matches.

Tottenham are a team in form and showed massive character in their last game against Leicester City, where they scored two stoppage time goals to come from behind and beat the Foxes in front of their own fans.

Chelsea may not have the best form in the league of late, but Thomas Tuchel’s men have showed their superiority over Spurs by recently winning back to back cup games against their London rivals.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has played down the team’s psychological advantage heading to the game, and has urged his side to go into the game with a right attitude.

Tuchel said in his press conference ahead of the game: “The last results in the last games it was like this and we have to make sure that it is a third time again like this. We play now three matches in such a short time, which is pretty unusual normally, and that’s why I think more or less they know what we do and we know what they do and it’s on us again to show up in games like this.

“They come from a late victory that gives them a boost, we come from two wins in the Carabao Cup which should give us some confidence when we play the match. It’s not about having whatever advantages and being philosophical about it. It’s about delivering and we have to be in the right mood with the right attitude to deliver a top performance.”
