Chelsea have a fight on their hands if they wish to hang onto a place in the top four of the Premier League for the end of the season.
The 2-0 loss against Manchester United coupled with Tottenham’s 3-2 victory over Aston Villa means that there is just now one point separating the teams.
It leaves Saturday’s game as what could be a season defining encounter between the two teams as Jose Mourinho’s men visit Stamford Bridge looking to leapfrog the Blues.
However, unlike Spurs, who are in Champions League action this week, Chelsea have a full week to prepare for the game.
