Chelsea are hoping to knock Real Madrid out in two consecutive UCL campaigns when they battle it out in the quarters.

Third place Chelsea are looking for a first win in four matches when they host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening.

The Blues are coming off a 1-1 draw against Brighton whilst Spurs came back to beat Leicester City 3-2 on Wednesday.

Spurs are unbeaten in six games and could potentially break into the English Premier League’s top four if they can bag all three points.

Chelsea have already beaten Tottenham twice this month, recording a 2-0 victory in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge before winning the reverse match in North London 1-0.

Antonio Conte will certainly know what to expect at Stamford Bridge, with the 52-year-old managing the Blues between 2016 and 2018.
