Chelsea host Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Frank Lampard’s Blues will be looking to bounce back after the damaging defeat to Manchester United on Monday evening. They’ll have to do so without a host of first-team options though with N’golo Kante and Christian Pulisic long-term absentees. Tammy Abraham could return though with Ruben Loftus-Cheek set to be in the squad for the first time this season.

Tottenham are in the midst of an injury crisis too with Son Heung-min joining Harry Kane on the treatment table after breaking his arm in the win over Aston Villa last weekend. Jose Mourinho’s side lost to RB Leipzig in the Champions League in midweek but head to Stamford Bridge just one point behind their rivals in the race for the top four. We’ll have all the latest for you throughout the afternoon right here:

When is it and what time is kick-off?

The match will begin at 12.30pm on Saturday 22 February.

What TV channel is it on?

The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1, with coverage beginning at midday.

Prediction

Frank Lampard’s side are struggling badly at the moment, with the manager’s frustrations becoming increasingly apparent. Yet, the loss of Son Heung-min could prove so detrimental to Spurs’ hopes, not only in breaking down Chelsea’s defence, but for the remainder of this season. With Tammy Abraham set to return, Chelsea should finally recapture some of the firepower they showed earlier in the season and give their manager the response he desperately needs.
