Spurs have also been given a boost on their talisman Harry Kane and that’s potentially dreadful news for the Blues.

According to Sky Sports, England captain Kane is now back in full training and he’s got a chance of featuring against Burnley on Saturday.

That surely means the centre-forward could be in good shape days later against Chelsea and his recent record in London derbies is excellent.

Kane has scored in both the games he’s played against the Blues this campaign and is up to 20 games across all competitions.
