Chelsea are making a late run for the European places this season, but they'll have to be pretty much flawless to have any chance of succeeding – and that's not a word that immediately springs to mind when describing Mauricio Pochettino's unpredictable side. They've only lost one of their last 33 home league ties with Tottenham, though, so recent history is on their side. The man in charge of Spurs for that defeat in 2018? He'll be sitting in the home dugout tonight.

After two defeats in a row for the first time since November, Tottenham find themselves seven points behind Aston Villa, who currently inhabit the final Champions League spot. Spurs won't face Villa again this season, so they'll need to make sure they take maximum points from their remaining games to be in with a chance of leapfrogging The Villains – starting with tonight's must-win encounter.

Here's how the teams line up:

Chelsea XI: Petrovic (GK); Cucurella, Badiashile, Chalobah, Gilchrist; Caicedo, Gallagher; Palmer, Madueke, Mudryk; Jackson.

Tottenham XI: Vicario (GK); Porro, Romero, van de Ven, Royal; Bissouma, Sarr; Kulusevski, Johnson, Son; Richarlison.
