Chelsea complete their final training session ahead of their crunch clash with Tottenham on Wednesday night

Diego Costa looked to be in high spirits as he joined summer signing Marcos Alonso in Chelsea’s final training session ahead of their crunch clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night.

The west London side head into the game looking to continue their fine form in the top flight after their brilliant start to the season under new boss Antonio Conte.

Indeed, Chelsea have won their last 13 games in the Premier League and know that victory over Spurs on Wednesday night would move them eight points clear of second-placed Liverpool in the top-flight table.

Chelsea’s fine form has placed them as the heavy favourites to win the title this season following their superb displays.

Chelsea’s sharp upturn in form this season has been in stark contrast to their struggles last term, when they ended up 10th in the table and without a trophy.
