Top 5 / Top 10

This Sunday, on the 1st of April, Tottenham will lock horns with Chelsea. A lot rides on this match that will either seal the top-four race or blow it wide open.

Interestingly, Tottenham have never won a match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since 1990, and they'll be looking to break the jinx this time.

Chelsea haven't been the most consistent side in the Premier League this season, and currently sit five points adrift of a spot in the top four. They can cut down the deficit to two points if they beat fourth-placed Tottenham.

Here's what we can expect from one of the most anticipated matches of the Premier League.

#1 Harry Kane's availability

Should Harry Kane start, Tottenham could have a major advantage over Chelsea

When Harry Kane got injured in Tottenham's match against Bournemouth, Spurs and England fans were devastated. Many feared that Harry Kane would miss the remainder of the season and maybe the World Cup in Russia as well.

Luckily, the ankle injury was not serious and Tottenham issued a statement that he would be out for a minimum of 4 weeks. Recently, Mauricio Pocchetino stated in his pre-match conference that Kane could make it into the starting XI as he is recovering well, and the England frontman was added to Spurs' squad to face the Blues.

The England international has scored 35 goals this season, including 24 goals in the Premier League. He has been a nightmare to handle for opposition defenders since the start of 2017, and could well cause a huge impact upfront.
