Chelsea, the soon-to-be-deposed champions, will have an opportunity to give Leicester City the Premier League title, when they host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Monday. Leicester failed to clinch the Premier League crown on Sunday after being held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United at Old Trafford.
While Leicester still have destiny very much in their own hands, with a win next weekend giving them the title, the Foxes will be confirmed as champions if Spurs fail to pick up anything but a win against Chelsea.
A draw at Old Trafford might have stopped this game from being a bit of a dead rubber, but Spurs will know they still remain very much outside shots at taking the title away from Leicester. But then, all they can do now is win their remaining three matches and hope their rivals trip up in all of theirs.
Spurs, who won't have the suspended Dele Alli for the rest of the season, found themselves in a position to hand Leicester the title this weekend after failing to beat West Brom last Monday night. Another such performance and their dream of an improbable championship will be over.
"West Brom was tough, we were all disappointed with the result and it's always hard because our dream is to fight for the title and we missed a big opportunity to reduce the gap," Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was quoted as saying by the club's official website.
"It was a big hit for us. The dream, the motivation is to fight for the title and we dropped two points, you always feel disappointed, but that all disappears because we need to be ready for Monday.
"We keep working hard, try to believe and the players have given their best every day. They are good now and ready to compete again against Chelsea. It's a big derby and we need to try and win the game and try to still fight for the title."
Chelsea have nothing to play for in the remaining three games of the season, with a top six place and European competition next season out of their reach. However, the Blues will revel in the fact that they can decide the next champions of England, and with Spurs being a fellow London club, expect Chelsea to come hard at them and make it as difficult as possible.
"They are now experiencing being at the top," Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink was quoted as saying by Sky Sports of Tottenham. "I'm not much into statistics, but it's the first time in their history they're now in the end competing for the Premier League title.
"In some players it might cause nerves. They might underperform a bit. Leicester are fearless but some Spurs players might be affected by being on top and think 'what now?' We shouldn't over-evaluate it in the sense it's just Tottenham. We desperately like to win the next game."
Expected lineups: Chelsea: Asmir Begovic; Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic, Baba Rahman; John Obi Mikel, Cesc Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Diego Costa.
