We`re at the stage of the season where there is no further margin for error if Chelsea are to be playing Champions League football next season.

A dip in form has seen Chelsea slip to fifth in the table, with a five-point gap between us and the fourth placed team.

This Sunday, on April Fools Day, we welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League fixture.

Our old rivals, Tottenham, occupy one of those top-four places and know that if they can win at Stamford Bridge for the first time since 1990, they`d have dealt our Champions League ambitions a huge blow.

This afternoon, Antonio Conte held his pre-match press conference and spilled the beans when it came to those who will not be available for selection.

The news relating to David Luiz continues to be negative, the Brazilian will be out for at least another three weeks with his troublesome knee.

Also unavailable is our versatile teenager, Ethan Ampadu, the youngster will miss the rest of the season after suffering a broken ankle, our best wishes go to him for a speedy recovery.

Rated as doubtful is our young centre-back, Andreas Christensen. Selected for the Danish squad for the recent bout of friendly internationals, Christensen was sent back to West London suffering from fatigue. If Christensen isn`t considered fit enough to play, it could mean a return to the starting eleven for Gary Cahill.

Another rated as doubtful is Thibaut Courtois, the keeper is troubled by a hamstring problem picked up on international duty and will face a fitness test. If he isn’t deemed fit to play then Willy Caballero will deputise.

Up the Chels!

  • A very similar presser to the City one, full of praise for the opposition, does not seem to care about his own team. If we lose this one, he should pack his bags and leave .
