Former Arsenal and Scotland international Charlie Nicholas has shared his verdict ahead of tomorrow’s London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
The two sides meet at Stamford Bridge with fourth place in the Premier League table up for grabs.
A win for Chelsea would extend their lead to four points while an away win for Spurs would see them leapfrog their rivals into fourth whilst also gaining a two point advantage.
Spurs have struggled historically during the Premier League era to win on Chelsea’s own turf and will once again be without Heung-min Son and Harry Kane through injury.
The Sky pundit believes that Spurs are lacking a focal point to their attack with the loss of the prolific pair which was clear to see during the midweek loss to RB Leipzig.
Nicholas believes that it will be Chelsea who will secure the bragging rights for the second time this season after winning the match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season 2-0 courtesy of two first-half goals from Willian.
He told Sky Sports: “This is a massive game in the context of the top four. The serious interest is at the bottom, but the potentials for the top four is phenomenal. The fascination is Chelsea’s home form, which has been awful. The youngsters have come out of the picture a bit, and it was always going to be an up-and-down season.
