Chelsea and Tottenham face each other in the Premier League on Sunday and while this fixture may technically be the reverse, meetings between the two London rivals nevertheless remind us of one unforgettable encounter back in 2016.
Spurs headed to Stamford Bridge in May that year to keep their hopes of unexpectedly lifting a first Premier League crown alive, while Chelsea’s season was already over after Jose Mourinho’s title-winners from the previous campaign had imploded in spectacular fashion.
But what transpired in west London caught everybody by surprise; ninety minutes of pure aggression, confrontation and emotion – not to mention a few dabs of genuinely brilliant football – as Stamford Bridge transformed into a blood-sport colosseum.

The game quickly established itself as one of the most iconic, infamous and violent ever seen in the Premier League era. But how much do you remember about it?
