Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge in a battle between third and first in the Premier League.
After a concerning start, Chelsea have conceded just once in their last four games and twice in their last eight in all competitions. They have kept eight clean sheets in their 15 games in all competitions.
Lampard says beating Tottenham twice last season is not relevant for Sunday’s game. He notes they strengthened their squad in the summer, and their start to the season – and their line-up last night – has shown the depth of it. #CHETOT

Frank Lampard’s side are third with 18 points, two points behind Spurs. They are unbeaten in seven matches in the league, and have won their last six matches in all competitions. Their last loss came in the EFL Cup against Tottenham on penalties.
Spurs lead the table on 20 points from nine games – ahead of Liverpool on goal difference. They have won their past four league games and are unbeaten in the league since the opening day.
Son Heung-Min has scored nine league goals this season – averaging a goal every 81 minutes in the Premier League.
He scored last time out in the 2-0 win against City, where strike partner Harry Kane bagged his ninth assist. Of Spurs’ 21 league goals this season, 16 were scored by Son and Kane.
The hosts did the league double over Spurs last season, and Lampard has beaten his former boss three times in their four meetings.
The clash is between the best attack and the best defence statistically. so far this season Blues have scored 22 goals this season, the most in the division. Spurs have scored one fewer and have conceded only nine – one fewer than Chelsea.
Tottenham have won just once in their last 34 away games against Chelsea in all competitions and have kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 away matches against Chelsea in all competitions.
