Saturday’s Premier League action concludes at Wembley where Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won six of their last seven matches in the Premier League with their only blot on that run their narrow defeat to champions Manchester City at the end of last month.

Another victory here would see them leapfrog their opponents into third place and move six points clear of their North London rivals Arsenal, who play on Sunday.

Jan Vertonghen could return after recovering from a hamstring injury though fellow defender Davinson Sanchez has been ruled out with a similar issue, joining Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose and Moussa Dembele on the sidelines.

Meanwhile Christian Eriksen could return to the starting line-up following an abdominal problem.

Harry Kane is favourite to open the scoring at 4.5 (7/2) with Son Heung-Min a 9.5 (17/2) chance with Bet Victor.

The home win is widely available at 2.8 (9/5) with the visitors favourites at 2.63 (13/8). The draw can be backed at a price of 3.5 (5/2) with several firms.

Maurizio Sarri maintained his unbeaten start to life as Chelsea manager last time out but had to settle for a goalless draw at home to Everton.

They will remain in third place if they avoid defeat here and could even rise to second if they win and Liverpool drop points at Watford earlier in the day.

Matteo Kovacic could be in contention despite missing Croatia’s defeat to England last weekend with an ankle problem.

Top scorer Eden Hazard is 6.5 (11/2) to get the first goal of the game with several firms ahead of 7.0 (6/1) shot Alvaro Morata.

Both of last season’s meetings between the pair ended in victory for the away side with Chelsea winning 2-1 at Wembley last August before Spurs came from behind to triumph 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on April Fool’s Day.

They also met at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final the season before last with the Blues’ winning by four goals to two.

You can back both teams to score this time around at 1.57 (4/7) with some firms while Unibet offer 1.75 (3/4) for there to be three or more goals in the game.
