Tottenham vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League latest score and goal updates as Hakim Ziyech red card overturned

Tough week, Chelsea boss admits & I’ve spoken to owners

Follow live updates as Tottenham host Chelsea in the Premier League as Graham Potter’s side desperate for a win in tonight’s London derby.

Chelsea have won just twice in their last 14 Premier League games, a woeful form that plummeted even further after last weekend’s 1-0 home defeat by Southampton, and meet a Spurs side who emerged victorious last time out was raised against West Ham.

The result put Tottenham in the top four and Antonio Conte’s side can cement themselves in fourth place with a further three points this afternoon, although the Italian will once again be absent from the touchline.

Chelsea’s top four hopes are slim and a defeat would certainly close the door for good. It would also increase the pressure on Potter’s position. The Chelsea manager revealed on Friday that he and his family have faced death threats over his side’s poor run, but a defeat at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would be another test of the club’s patience.
