Just two points and two places separates second place Spurs from their London rivals and with points and pride at stake the stage is set for an intriguing tactical battle between Andre Villas-Boas and his former tutor Jose Mourinho.
Despite their lofty positions neither side has yet to reach their potential with Spurs winning four (three of them by a single goal margin) and losing just one of their five games and Chelsea winning three and drawing one.
Despite their flying start to the season, manager Andre Villas-Boas is remaining coy on his side’s chances of winning the title.
“We want to do well against a team that won the European Cup two years ago, won the Europa League that we wanted so much last season. This is the kind of game that you can measure the kind of challenges you might have,” he commented.
“What is happening to us now puts us in a positive mood and we have to collect as many points as possible based on the positive mood we are developing, but it can change very, very quickly.
“At the moment we are on a good run, but there are no clubs on maximum points and this year will be very tight at the top. (Manchester) United are struggling for points, but they have played all the top team at the beginning of the season.
“This will probably become the tightest Premier League in years.”
Villas-Boas will head into the game minus the services of Etienne Capoue (knee) and Younes Kaboul (thigh) however Danny Rose returns following an ankle injury.
Chelsea meanwhile have lost to Everton and drawn with Manchester United in their last two away games will hope their impressive record against Spurs stands to them.
The Blues have an impressive record against Spurs, losing just four times since the start of the Premier League and won 4-2 in the corresponding game last season.
Mourinho has a virtually fully fit squad to choose from with Marco Van Ginkel the only absentee. The Dutch midfielder is out for the rest of the season after tearing his cruciate ligament in the 2-0 win over Swindon midweek.
Fernando Torres is pushing for a start after scoring in that tie while Ramires is a slight doubt with a hip injury.
