Tottenham have gone 12 games in the Barclays Premier League without defeat after beating West Ham United 4-1 last Sunday. That equalled the club's record in the competition, set between December 2012 and March 2013, when they won eight and drew four. So if they draw or win against London neighbours Chelsea they will set a new club record.
They will fancy Harry Kane to find the net; Spurs' England striker scored twice in the win over West Ham to take his tally for the season to nine including eight in five Spurs matches - ahead of yesterday's Europa League clash with Qarabaq, in Azerbaijan.
More pointedly ahead of the visit of neighbours Chelsea, Kane has now scored 12 goals in 14 London derby games while in the calendar year of 2015, he has 24 Premier League goals, more than any other player in English football.
Chelsea beat Norwich 1-0 last Saturday after three straight Premier League defeats. The reigning champions are still 15th, just five points clear of the relegation zone but 14 points behind leaders Leicester. But on Tuesday they enjoyed a comfortable 4-0 win in Israel against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Back to the Premier League and in this game last season Spurs won 5-3, inspired by Kane, who scored twice. That was only Spurs' fourth win in 23 home games against Chelsea in the Premier League.
