Tottenham Hotspur will face Chelsea at White Hart Lane on January 4 in what could prove to be one of the games of the season so far. With both Tottenham and Chelsea fighting for the Premier League title this campaign, the London derby so early in the New Year promises to be a key fixture.

Chelsea are going strong in the Premier League at the moment and will head into the New Year with confidence. Under manager Antonio Conte, the players - especially Diego Costa and Eden Hazard - are flying high and are playing like they should.

While star striker Costa has scored 13 goals in the Premier League so far this season, Hazard has found the net eight times and has created 30 chances. The duo will be crucial when the Blues face Tottenham at White Hart Lane in January.

Playing at home will give Tottenham an advantage. The North London outfit have yet to lose at White Hart Lane in the Premier League this season and have conceded only five goals.

Tickets for such big matches are hard to get hold of, but there are still some available at TicketGum. Tickets for Short Side and Long Side Standard are there for the taking, but if you're planning on going, you'll have to be quick or they'll get snapped up. After all, Spurs almost always sell out their home matches - on average there were 35.776 spectators at White Hart Lane for every game in the Premier League during the 2015-16 campaign.

Chelsea and Tottenham have already faced each other this season - in November. On that occasion, the Blues got the better of Spurs 2-1. The two London sides were involved in a feisty affair towards the end of the 2015-16 campaign. The 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on May 2 saw Tottenham relinquish all hope of catching eventual champions Leicester City in the Premier League title race.

With Conte’s side looking invincible at the moment, Tottenham have to win this match or fall further behind in the title race. The North London outfit’s form picked up a bit following the defeat to Chelsea in November, and the White Hart Lane faithful will hope that the players maintain it in the New Year.

Harry Kane will be a key player for Tottenham. The England international striker has scored seven goals and created 19 chances in 12 Premier League matches this season. The 23-year-old's runs and movements could help Spurs breach the Chelsea citadel. In fact, if only goals by English players counted, then Mauricio Pochettino’s side would be top of the Premier League table.

This London derby could be a Premier League classic. With both Spurs and Chelsea playing good, attacking football, there is likely to be a few goals in the game. One should not be surprised if the match at White Hart Lane ends in a high scoring draw. Conte’s side will fancy their chances of picking up all three points given their form, but Tottenham at home are a tough proposition.
