Chelsea will face off against cross-London rivals Tottenham on Saturday in the English Premier League's late afternoon kick off.
This is a massive London derby in the EPL will see first place playing fifth place, and everything still to play for as the season enters into the home straight. The game will start at 12.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Coming into this weekend's fixtures, Chelsea are top of the EPL with 63 points from their 28 games so far. They have a comfortable four point cushion above second placed Liverpool, however, Manchester City, who are fourth, are six points behind with two games in hand. If they can win their two extra games they will equal the Blues' points, and City have the far superior goal difference.
The pressure is on at the top of the EPL and it is at this point in the season that two teams are likely to pull away from the pack. At the moment any of the top four could easily emerge as frontrunners still, and even Spurs back in fifth place are just 10 points behind, and they could fight their way back into contention if they can win out the season.
In team news for Chelsea, Eden Hazard is back to fitness despite suffering a minor ankle injury whilst playing for Belgium in midweek.
However, both David Luiz and Ashley Cole are out for today's big clash.
For Tottenham, playmaker Christian Eriksen may miss today's game with a back problem. He also missed Denmark's defeat by England on Wednesday, and is unlikely to be back in time.
Spurs will be aiming to finish in the top 4 and claim a Champions League spot for next season, however, they have their work cut out chasing the leading four pack with Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City looking the likely top four right now. It will be games like this that Spurs have to win if they are to close the gap on the top group.
