Tottenham Hotspur host Chelsea in North London for a derby on Sunday afternoon with the potential to maintain their grasp on fourth position.

In their most recent match, the Lilywhites defeated West Ham United 2-0, while the Blues’ bad luck continued with a 1-0 loss to Southampton at home.

It’s futile to try to forecast which Spurs team will show up each weekend, but the Lilywhites haven’t drawn a league game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since December 2021, and Spurs are about to win three straight Premier League home games with clean sheets for the first time since 2019.

Conte, who was involved in a furious argument with Thomas Tuchel at the August Stamford Bridge draw, will undoubtedly be keeping a close check on events from his Italian base this weekend as he recovers from illness.

The Blues cannot move up the rankings regardless of what happens this weekend, and the Englishman can only boast a pitiful three victories from his last 16 matches in charge of the team. They have also scored just three goals in their last nine games across all competitions, which is simply unacceptable for a team of Chelsea’s caliber.

The visitors’ road record is equally depressing; after beating Red Bull Salzburg in October, they have embarrassingly failed to win any of their past nine away games. Yet, August’s ferocious 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge extended Chelsea’s unbeaten streak against Tottenham to a respectable six games.
