Whenever Tottenham face London rivals Chelsea it’s always a big occasion, and this Thursday’s clash looks to be no exception.

With only two points between them – and a just about manageable distance to be made up from the high-flying Manchester clubs – it’s all to play for at White Hart Lane this Thursday.

Spurs have had an outstanding season which has included an 11-match unbeaten run and a victory over the newly O’Neilled Sunderland, whereas the second half of 2011 has been a bit of a mixed bag for Chelsea, who only now seem to be getting into their stride.

This is a massive opportunity for Spurs to get close to top spot – they have a game in hand and a victory would leave them only four points off Manchester City – and to be as near the top of the table at Christmas is a huge psychological factor for anyone looking to mount a serious title challenge.

News that John Terry had limped off the training pitch would surely have been well received by Harry and the lads.  The footage of the England skipper being supported off the pitch looked like bad news for Chelsea, but the club later announced on Twitter that it was nothing major and JT will be fit to play after all.

What do we reckon?  Spurs have the most to gain and they will have the home advantage, but Chelsea have a knack for sneaking back equalisers.

Victor Chandler have 4/1 for a draw.
