Premier League defending champions Chelsea face London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in a battle for the final Champions League spot.

Spurs head into the Easter game in fourth – one place above Antonio Conte’s side – but a win for the Blues would narrow the gap to just two points.

Tottenham have not beaten Chelsea away since 1990, when former England striker Gary Lineker scored the winning goal in a 2-1 league victory.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side are unbeaten in the Premier League in 2018, with seven victories and three draws, and come into the mouthwatering clash high on confidence.

AFTERNOON

15:50: Hello everyone, welcome to our LIVE coverage of Chelsea vs Tottenham from Stamford Bridge.

Sorry that we’ve started a little late. I was preoccupied with Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Stoke and celebrating my decision to captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in my fantasy football team.

I spent about 9 minutes punching the air…

Anyway, I’m here now and we’ve got a cracking prospect ahead of us. I will now be talking predictions.

TEAM NEWS

15:45: Harry Kane has been named on the bench for Tottenham’s clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The England striker was due to be out until mid-April with ankle ligament damage but has made a speedy recovery in time for a pivotal top-four clash.

There was no place in the matchday squad for Toby Alderweireld, however, as his Spurs future continues to look bleak.

Thibaut Courtois misses out for Chelsea in goal, with Willy Caballero coming in.

15:40: Here are your line-ups folks. Sir Harold of Kane makes the bench after a miraculous recovery.

Chelsea XI: Caballero, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Moses, Fabregas, Kante, Alonso, Willian, Hazard, Morata.

Subs: Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Giroud, Cahill, Emerson, Eduardo, Hudson-Odoi.

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Lamela, Alli, Eriksen, Son.

Subs: Rose, Kane, Wanyama, Vorm, Sissoko, Aurier, Lucas Moura.

Referee: Andre Marriner.

CHELSEA vs TOTTENHAM

Thibaut Courtois and Andreas Christensen are doubts for Chelsea. Goalkeeper Courtois sustained a hamstring problem before the international break, meaning Willy Caballero could deputise, while centre-back Christensen has been struggling with fatigue.

Defender David Luiz (knee) is definitely out, along with midfielder Ross Barkley who is set to feature for the club’s under-23 side.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will give Harry Kane every chance to prove his fitness. Kane suffered ankle ligament damage three weeks ago and Pochettino said on Thursday that he cannot rule his striker out of the game at Stamford Bridge. Harry Winks is definitely missing as he sees a specialist over his own ankle injury.
