Jason Cundy's brilliant response to suggestion Tottenham are now coming for Chelsea

Jason Cundy has delivered a hilarious response when told Chelsea need to watch their back because of Tottenham.

Admittedly, Chelsea are going through a rocky patch right now with one win in their previous seven league matches.

It leaves the Blues sat third in the Premier League table, and results mean the focus must now shift from a title bid to securing their top four position.

They watched London rivals Tottenham record a dramatic 3-2 win over Leicester City last night at the King Power Stadium courtesy of two stoppage time goals from Steven Bergwijn.

It means Antonio Conte’s Spurs are fifth in the league standings eight points behind Chelsea having player four games less. Up next, the two London club clash this Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

Pundit and Chelsea fan Cundy has laughed off suggestions that his side will be caught by Spurs in brilliant fashion. However, he does admit that this weekend’s showdown between the clubs is massive.

“I tell you what, Chelsea need to watch their back because we’re (Spurs) coming for you,” Jamie O’Hara said on talkSPORT.

Cundy replied “You’ve been coming for us for the last 25 years.”

O’Hara later added: “Chelsea, they could crumble.

Cundy responded: “It’s a must win game for Chelsea. If Spurs win that, it’s game on. Even a draw is a good result for Spurs.”

Anything but a Chelsea win makes things uncomfortable

Thomas Tuchel desperately needs his Chelsea side to deliver on Sunday to ensure there is still a healthy gap over the chasing teams below.

There is a real danger of the Blues being pulled into the top four scuffle, especially because all the clubs in question have played less games.

A victory against Spurs this weekend will allow for some breathing room.

For certain, this Chelsea group should be confident after winning back-to-back games against Spurs already in January in the Carabao Cup.

They’re imperious at Stamford Bridge against their London neighbours, too, so it’s time for the club’s top stars to turn up.

If they play anywhere near their best, it should be enough for three points.
