Tottenham vs Chelsea prediction: How will Premier League match play out today?

Tottenham Hotspur take on London rivals Chelsea in the Premier League as Jose Mourinho comes up against one of his former loyal lieutenants in Frank Lampard.

In a contest that will have a big say in the Premier League top-four battle, Spurs know that a victory will put them level on points with the Blues and send them into the Champions League places on goal difference.

Mourinho has given Spurs a new lease of life since replacing Mauricio Pochettino, with Dele Alli enjoying a rich return to form, and the midfielder’s record of five goals in four games against Chelsea will mark him out once more as one to watch.
