11:25 - Hello everyone I am Danial Kennedy and welcome to VAVEL'S coverage of Tottenham - Chelsea

Spurs managed to end their run of nine matches without a win against Chelsea in this fixture last season too, with goals from Kane, Rose, Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli giving them a memorable 5-3 victory over the eventual champions.

Mourinho wont be confident of his sides chances on Sunday as Chelsea have only managed the one victory in their last nine visits to White Hart Lane.

A big absentee for the visiting side, however, could be John Terry after being stretchered off in midweek and missing training on Friday, but Mourinho claims that he could still captain the side on Sunday.

For Chelsea, Ramires is facing a race against time to be fit with a muscle problem but Cesc Fabregas could return after recovering from his midweek toe injury.

Dele Alli will be missing for the hosts as he serves a match ban for picking up five yellow cards, which will allow Erik Lamela to return to the side if he recovers from a groin strain. Moussa Dembele, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker didn't make the midweek game and are fully expected to return to the side while Son Heung-Min should retain his role in the team.

With qualification all but secured focus will now turn to trying to qualify for next season's competition, which will prove a task in itself as 13 points currently sit between them and their opponents, but a win will go a long way in helping the cause.

There, Chelsea edged closer to reaching the last 16 stage of Europe's elite competition with goals from Gary Cahill, Willian, Oscar and Kurt Zouma giving them a comfortable 4-0 victory over the Israelis.

Like their opponents, they faced a strenuous trip as Jose Mourinho's side travelled to Israel to take on Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

They just managed to win last weekend when Diego Costa's single goal gave them a narrow 1-0 victory over the newly promoted Norwich City and like their opponents they managed to carry their form into Europe during the week.

On the other hand, it has been a nightmare start to the season for the current champions Chelsea, but it does seem that the green shoots of recovery are beginning to sprout at Stamford Bridge.

However, they did face a grueling trip on Thursday when they had to travel to Azerbaijan to take on Qarabag FK, a single goal from Harry Kane, which was his ninth in six games, securing their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League. Pochettino will be hoping that the strenuous trip won't affect today's performance.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have been on a sensational run of form with their only defeat in the league coming on the opening day to Manchester United and are currently on a run of 12 matches unbeaten in the league.

They impressed last week when they played out an impressive 4-1 victory over their bitter rivals West Ham and carried that form into Europe midweek.

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to make it 13 leagues matches unbeaten today when they host the London derby with current champions Chelsea.
