Tottenham host Chelsea in the London derby on Saturday with just a point separating the two sides.

Chelsea are one of three undefeated teams in the Premier League this season while Spurs have one more win to their name than Maurizio Sarri’s outfit.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at five memorable matches between the two clubs.

Diego Costa opened the scoring for the Blues, before Kane scored twice and won a penalty which was put away by Andros Townsend, with Danny Rose and Nacer Chadli also adding their names to the scoresheet.

Eden Hazard and John Terry found the net for Chelsea, although the latter came in the 85th minute which proved too late for a comeback from Jose Mourinho’s side.

Cole scored his second with 10 minutes to go before Keane curled the ball into the net in the 88th minute.

Goals from Lampard and Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink came in between Mutu’s brace before a double from Spurs’ Frederic Kanoute gave the visitors hope going into the last few minutes.

The win for manager Claudio Ranieri showed the ambition of new owner Roman Abramovich in a match that proved to be one of the last for Tottenham boss Glenn Hoddle, who was sacked later that month.
