    Arguably the biggest game in the Premier League this weekend takes place on Sunday afternoon as Chelsea play Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge. The host begins the weekend in 3rd place on 18 points while the visitors are top of the table on 20 points, so there is all to play for in this match.

    Chelsea come into the game having defeated French club Rennes 2-1 away from home in the Champions League on Tuesday night. The victory secured their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League meaning Chelsea can afford to rotate their squad for the remaining two group games.

    The result in France means Chelsea have won each of their last 6 matches in all competitions. The wins in the Premier League have come away at Burnley and Newcastle United plus at home against Sheffield United. Chelsea are currently on a run of 7 Premier League games without defeat and are undefeated in their last 3 at home.

    Trends show Chelsea have won 8 of their last 10 home Premier League games and there have been over 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 3 at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have scored 2 or more goals in 8 of their last 10 Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge.

    Tottenham Hotspur picked up a comfortable 4-0 home win over Bulgarian club Ludogorets in the Europa League on Thursday night. As soon as Spurs opened the scoring in the 16th minute, there was only going to be one winner.

    That result means Spurs have won each of their last 5 games in all competitions. They are undefeated in their last 8 matches in the Premier League, with their only loss this season coming on the opening weekend at home against Everton. Their most recent victory was an excellent 2-0 win at home over Manchester City and Jose Mourinho will be hoping to build on that win by defeating his former club, Chelsea.

    Trends show Tottenham Hotspur have remained undefeated in 21 of their last 25 games in the Premier League. However, they will be hoping to improve defensively against Chelsea having conceded 1 or more goals in their last 19 away games against The Blues in all competitions.

    Looking ahead to the team news and Chelsea have doubts over the fitness of Christian Pulisic and Billy Gilmour. Every other player should be available to Frank Lampard.

    Tottenham Hotspur will be without injured central defender Toby Alderweireld and attacking midfielder Erik Lamela. They are likely to line up with a strong defensive formation, with Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane working together on the counterattack.

    This is a big game for both teams as they aim to establish themselves as title contenders this season. The big win at Manchester United and the 2-0 victory over Manchester City will give Spurs confidence they can win this game. They have the ability to catch Chelsea on the break and could come away with maximum points with both teams scoring.
