Chelsea looks to win a fifth-straight match against London rivals Tottenham for the first time since 2002 when it hosts Spurs on Sunday at Stamford Bridge (watch live, 11:30am ET Sunday online via Peacock Premium).

The Blues won a pair of League Cup matches versus Tottenham earlier this month, adding to two-straight PL wins. Throw in a 0-0 draw in November 2020 and Chelsea has not lost or allowed a goal to Spurs in five matches.

In fact, Chelsea’s only loss to Spurs since Jan. 2019 was a 2020-21 League Cup loss in penalties.

If it seems like you’ve seen this fixture a lot, well, you have. The clubs have met in the FA Cup or League Cup four times since the start of the 2016-17 season, two of them two-legged ties.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Chelsea vs Tottenham.

Chelsea vs Tottenham prediction

Tottenham is buzzing but is also one fewer day rested than Chelsea and doesn’t have a lot of rotation options. It’s also difficult to imagine the Blues won’t come out of the gates with vigor against a team they’ve beaten twice this month, especially considering their pride’s been stung in the league. Chelsea’s woes at the back are worth noting, too, and hopefully that could mean a bunch of goals. Tottenham’s also due to break a five-match drought in this particular rivalry. Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham.
