Chelsea vs Tottenham 101 Great Goals: Chelsea 1-1 Tottenham

Having gone four games without a Premier League win, Chelsea have allowed Tottenham back into the race for the top four.

The Blues have collected just 15 points from their last 14 league games, 11 fewer than in their first 12 fixtures.

However, this weekend they face a depleted Spurs side, who will be without both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.

The north Londoners crashed to a 1-0 defeat to RB Leipzig in midweek looking toothless in attack without their two star forwards.

Premier League preview: Chelsea vs Tottenham

Defeat to Manchester United on Monday leaves Chelsea in a vulnerable position in the top four.

Since Christmas, they have won just twice in the eight games they have played.

Just a point now separates them from fifth-placed and Sunday’s opposition, Tottenham.

The west London club struggled without Tammy Abraham who missed Monday’s defeat with a foot injury.

The 22-year-old is a doubt for the weekend’s clash with Michy Batshuayi set to lead the line again for the Blues.

The club’s failure to find Frank Lampard another striker has so far proved costly since the close of the transfer window.

However, Saturday’s fixture is never one which requires extra motivation for the Blues.

Lampard will be hoping his side can record a fourth successive win over their London rivals.

Can Tottenham cope without Kane and Son?

Even playing for over 90 minutes with a fractured arm, Son carried Spurs to victory on Sunday.

The South Korean netted a brace including a dramatic 94th-minute winner to claim a huge three points at Aston Villa.

Although, on Tuesday morning, Spurs fans were dealt the blow of the news that he could be facing weeks on the sideline.

Along with Kane already being on the sidelines, Spurs were forced to take on Leipzig this week without their two most dependable goal scorers.

Lucas Moura attempted fill the void of the duo but looked shattered and Tottenham’s attack looked toothless.

With Spurs’ squad already being full of weaknesses, being without both Kane and Son only makes Mourinho’s job that much harder.

The Portuguese coach keeps being forced to change personnel, find ways to patch new wounds and play players who are running on empty.

He now faces a really tough battle as he prepares to ready his Spurs side for the trip to his old stomping ground this weekend.
