Chelsea manager, Guus Hiddink does not think Tottenham can cope with the pressure of battling for the EPL.
Leicester are eight points clear at the top of the table, with Tottenham in second place. A draw or loss is sufficient for the foxes to claim the trophy.
And with Tottenham having dropped points in their last match out, Hiddink feels the pressure will get to the young spurs side.
“Tottenham are now experiencing what it’s like to be at the top,” he told reporters.
“I’m not too much into statistics, but I think it’s the first time in their history that they are competing for the title.
“Some players might get nervous a bit and start underperforming. Leicester are fearless, but the Tottenham players might be affected by the pressure of challenging for the title.”
On Monday’s game, Hiddink added: “We should not make too much of it. It is just a game against Tottenham for us.
“Of course, we really want to win it and then we have big games against Sunderland and Leicester.
“But we have the same attitude regardless of whether it’s Tottenham or another opponent.”
