Watch Tottenham 1 Chelsea 1 match highlights

This is the match that Tottenham have been building towards all season. Today they have champions Chelsea entering their yard and if ever there was a chance to display their title credentials, it is this afternoon. Spurs have recently had their odds have bagging the premier league cut down to 20/1 from 120/1 and Harry Redknapp's entertaining group have been impressing domestically and on European lands with fine performances. If Tottenham manage to turnover the champions today they will see the gap between them cut to just one point. Four years ago, Tottenham couldn't win against Chelsea for the life of them and they hadn't managed a win over the blues in the premier league until November 2006.

Whilst Spurs are flying at home without a defeat since August, Chelsea are in freefall. At one point this season they were strolling, 21 goals netted in their first 5 games of the season. Since then injuries and loss of form have taken it's toll on the champions are faltering badly and have only won once in six matches, scouring only four times in the process. Carlo Ancelotti will be desperately looking for a result at White Hart lane to help rescure the morale of his team and help steer them closer to Manchester United at the premiership summit. Another loss may see huge pressure on the Italian's future at Stamford Bridge and with Arsenal and Manchester United for them to face next, if they fail to get positive results their momentum may be irrerepairly crippled.

Spurs will have to battle through without the services of Rafael Van der Vaart, who has been missing with a hamstring problem for two weeks, but Luka Modric is available after recovering from flu. Jermaine Jenas and Niko Kranjcar were injured at Twente while Ledley King, Tom Huddlestone, Jamie O'Hara and Jonathan Woodgate are still out. Chelsea's hopes of keeping Gareth Bale quiet have been hit by a torn hamstring for Jose Bosingwa, which means they will have to deploy Paulo Ferriera at right back. Frank Lampard is still not match fit having not kicked a ball since the end of August.
