Tottenham absolutely blitzed the Saints on Boxing Day, and the Saints are winless in five attempts against Spurs since their return to the top flight in 2012.

The Blues have only managed to net once since January 3, Michy Batshuayi scoring against Norwich in the FA Cup, and for the first time in their history Chelsea have drawn three successive games 0-0.

The fact Hughton did not come out in the media and criticise the club only further endeared him tp not only the Newcastle fans, but also the wider footballing public. His last game against Leicester was his only Premier League game this season where he didn't have a single shot.

"This is our situation, this is the truth and I think the club has to spend money".

Meanwhile the Italian refused to speculate on rumours linking Chelsea with a raft of strikers including experienced Premier League pro Peter Crouch and former Man City forward Edin Dzeko.

Otherwise, we risk to finish 20th in the table. Andreas Christensen has been impressive and consistent at the heart of the defence. Australian Mathew Ryan has impressed in goal, while Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk have bene mainstays at the heart of the back four, with the latter playing every minute of Brighton's campaign so far.

Conte has Willian available, which could perhaps see more attacking system introduced, with Bakayoko the likely victim.

"[Morata] must learn to control himself". Despite Manchester City's incredible run, Conte has won more Premier League points (142) and won more Premier League games (44 out of 61) than any manager since his appointment.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is desperate for fresh faces to arrive at Stamford Bridge, but his sole January signing Ross Barkley is not eligible to play tonight as he wasn't registered in time for the clash at Carrow Road.

Chelsea will be without Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas against Albion at the Amex tomorrow.

Ultimately, the Blues should have just a bit too much class and quality for their opponents, and should be able to leave the South coast with three points under their belt.

For the best part of a decade, Chelsea have positioned themselves as the anti-thesis of Arsenal. This is a club that sacked Jose Mourinho (twice) and Carlo Ancelotti shortly after title wins.
