Chelsea take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this weekend and this will be a key game for not only these two sides but also for all the other sides who are chasing a Champions League spot for the upcoming season.

Going into this game, Spurs are just a single point behind their London rivals meaning if they were to pick up all three points on Saturday then the Lilywhites would be entering the top-four.

But according to Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta, the Blues are really pumped especially after losing to Manchester United.

Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC’s website, Azpilicueta said: “We are really disappointed with the result [against Man United] but we can’t blame VAR or anything like that.

“It was our own fault because we had chances to win.

“From this point, we have a massive derby on Saturday and we have lost all the advantage that we had on our hands.

“We have let that slip and now we have some really big, decisive games coming up starting with a massive derby on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.”

Spurs have picked up a win in their last three Premier League games while Chelsea have managed just one three-pointer in their previous five league outings. And this would suggest that Jose Mourinho’s men should be able to overcome this Chelsea test with considerable ease.

But this will be easier said than done since Spurs will be without the services of Son as he picked up a fractured arm during their last win against Aston Villa.
