Sunday’s Premier League action concludes at Stamford Bridge where fifth place Chelsea take on fourth place Tottenham Hotspur.

The hosts are five points worse off that their opponents and know defeat could all but end their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

They go into the game on the back of their FA Cup quarter-final victory over Leicester City though they needed extra-time to get past the Foxes and had lost three of the four games prior to that tie.

Thibaut Courtois could miss out with a hamstring injury so Willy Caballero is ready to deputise having come off the bench for Argentina in their 6-1 defeat to Spain on Tuesday evening.

Andreas Christensen is also a doubt while Ross Barkley and David Luiz also miss out.

Olivier Giroud is widely available at 6.0 (5/1) to open the scoring with Eden Hazard a 5.75 (19/4) chance with Unibet.

The home win is 2.4 (7/5) with some firms with the visitors as highly priced as the 3.3 (23/10) on offer from Betfair. The draw can be backed at 3.5 (5/2) with Coral.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s only defeat in their last sixteen league games came at the home of runaway leaders Manchester City.

They have won their last four on the spin and another win here will move them to within two points of third place Liverpool with a game in hand.

Top scorer Harry Kane may be involved despite picking up an ankle ligament injury just three weeks ago though Harry Winks remains out.

Son Heung-Min is 8.0 (7/1) to get the first goal of the game with William Hill with Christian Eriksen a 12.0 (11/1) chance with the same firm.

Antonio Conte’s men ran out winners when the sides met at Wembley back in August – Marcos Alonso grabbing both goals for the champions.

Four of the past five meetings have seen both teams score so you may be tempted to back that outcome this time around at 1.75 (3/4) with Betfair, while the same firm offer 1.95 (19/20) for there to be three or more goals in the game.
