The final chapter of the rivalry between Chelsea and Tottenham was set to take place on Friday 23 February 2024.

There is not much love between the two London clubs, whose animosity initially stems from geographical proximity but has deepened in recent years as each has become a more prominent presence at the top of English football.

Their previous meeting ended in a 4-1 win for Chelsea at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November 2023, during which the hosts had two players sent off in a frenetic and highly entertaining game. It meant the return fixture in the 2023/24 Premier League season was eagerly awaited.

However, the match scheduled for late February has been postponed, meaning fans will have to wait a little longer to see these two lock horns again.
