Last season's EPL Champions, Chelsea, are the favourites to win the match at home, while the Spurs are the favourites to finish in the top four.

The Blues are having a strange season without their core group of players including Diego Costa, Oscar and Nemanja Matic, who all departed. The team manager, Antonio Conte, is frustrated with the board as he was not able to get the replacements he wanted. There are strong rumors that he will be leaving at the end of the season himself.

Tottenham, on the other hand, under Mauricio Pochettino are getting stronger with each new season. The team's most valuable player, Harry Kane, is unfortunately out with an ankle injury at the moment, but the team is not short of talent. Dele Alli, who turns 22 next month, is considered to be one of the best young players in the game.

Earlier in the season, at Wembley, Chelsea managed a 1:2 away victory against the Spurs. More recently, after losing away to both Manchester clubs, Willian and company beat Crystal Palace at home 2:1.

Tottenham have won their last three EPL games vs. Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Bournemouth.

How do you think the match on Sunday will play out?

The kick-off is at 4pm local time.
