Tottenham and Chelsea play at Wembley Stadium on Sunday in the Premier League, with Spurs tenants at the national stadium this season as the construction of the new White Hart Lane is completed. Tottenham and Premier League winners Chelsea played three times last season - and the Blues ended Spurs' title bid the previous campaign.

Here, Press Association Sport reflects on those four games.

:: Chelsea 2 Tottenham 2, Stamford Bridge, Premier League, May 2, 2016

Spurs needed to end their 26-year wait for victory at Stamford Bridge to have any hope of catching leaders Leicester and were 2-0 ahead at half-time through goals from Harry Kane - his 25th in the league this season - and Son Heung-min. Gary Cahill pulled a goal back before substitute Eden Hazard scored a fine goal which denied Spurs and saw the Foxes crowned champions. Nine Spurs players were booked, four after Hazard's equaliser, on a bad tempered night.

:: Chelsea 2 Tottenham 1, Stamford Bridge, Premier League, November 26, 2016

Chelsea extended their winning sequence to seven Premier League games, coming from behind once again to extend Tottenham's wait for victory at Stamford Bridge to 30 games. Spurs suffered their first loss of the season as the Blues responded from conceding a first Premier League goal in 601 minutes. Pedro's sublime strike cancelled out Christian Eriksen's superb opener and Victor Moses struck what proved to be the winner.

:: Tottenham 2 Chelsea 0, White Hart Lane, Premier League, January 4, 2017

Chelsea were seeking a record-breaking 14th consecutive victory, but Dele Alli's double denied them and fired Tottenham back into the Premier League title race. The Blues were bidding for an English top-flight record in a single season, but Spurs inflicted their first league defeat in more than three months as Alli headed in goals either side of half-time.

:: Chelsea 4 Tottenham 2, Wembley Stadium, FA Cup, April 22, 2017

Chelsea advanced to the FA Cup final by ending Tottenham's eight-match winning run in all competitions. Willian scored two set-piece goals - a free-kick and a penalty - before Harry Kane and Dele Alli drew Spurs level. But substitute Eden Hazard's strike and Nemanja Matic's thunderbolt sent Chelsea through as Spurs fell to a record seventh straight FA Cup semi-final defeat.
