Tottenham Hotspur will look to banish the ghosts of Stamford Bridge when they take on London rivals and hosts Chelsea in a Premier League clash on Sunday, 1 April 2018, kick-off at 17h00 CAT.

Spurs come into the game as the team on form, having claimed four straight Premier League wins – the most recent of which saw them win 4-1 at Bournemouth on March 11.

Chelsea, by contrast, have won just two of their last six Premier League matches, though they were victorious over another London side, Crystal Palace, on March 10.

Five points separate the teams on the log, with the Lilywhites in fourth place on 61 points and the Blues in fifth on 56. Spurs will see this game as a chance to strengthen their Champions League ambitions for next season, while Chelsea must win to revive their top-four hopes.

In head-to-head stats, Chelsea and Spurs have met in 141 matches across all competitions. The Blues have claimed 61 wins compared to 44 for the Lilywhites, while 36 games have been drawn.

The teams’ most recent meeting was a Premier League clash at Wembley Stadium in August last year which was won 2-1 by Chelsea, thanks to a brace from Marcos Alonso. Spurs have won just once in their last seven clashes with the Blues.

But the most astonishing statistic is that Tottenham have not won at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League era – their last away win over Chelsea was a 2-1 triumph in February 1990. Since then, Spurs have failed to win on 30 trips to their cross-city rivals.
