Chelsea face Tottenham this weekend in what is a massive London derby at the top of the Premier League.

The game will be the 1,000th match of Roman Abramovich’s reign as Chelsea owner with the club winning 16 major honours in that time, the most by any club in England since the Russian took over in 2003.

In midweek the blues kept up their excellent form in the Champions League, beating Rennes with a late Oliver Giroud goal to qualify for the last-16 knockout phase.
