Antonio Conte’s side are flying after winning 12 games in a row, catapulting themselves six points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
If the Blues can take care of Stoke on Saturday, the clash at White Hart Lane will give Conte’s side the chance to equal Arsenal’s 14-game winning streak they earned in 2002.
But Keown, who was part of the Arsenal side that managed that incredible feat, says Spurs might spoil the party for Chelsea.
“It is hard to back against them — although the trip to Tottenham next week where they could equal the record may be a bridge too far,” he told the Daily Mail.”
Although Keown also reckons Chelsea will be getting stronger the longer their current run goes on.
“You become proud of these mini-records”

“I played in the Arsenal side that holds the record and you become proud of these mini-records,” he added.
“From match to match you gain an extra layer of armoury and steel. When you put together such a run of victories, or go unbeaten for a whole season, you are walking on air.
“Coming into work every day is a joy. Whatever the gaffer asks you to do you do it — there is so much belief in the manager.”
