CHELSEA arrive at the Lane in buoyant form for Saturday's eagerly-awaited London derby.
The Blues' 1-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday was their fourth consecutive league victory and lifted them above Liverpool on goal difference into second spot.
And after Manchester United's shock home thrashing by Liverpool, Guus Hiddink's outfit find themselves just four points behind the reigning champions for the run-in.
Chelsea have been boosted by the timely return of Michael Essien and Ricardo Carvalho from injury. The Ghana international scored the winner against City and was also on target against Juventus in the Champions League last week.
