Tottenham Hotspur 1-6 Chelsea was the 17th league match of the 1997-98 season. An emphatic second half performance saw Ruud Gullit's Chelsea clinch their biggest ever win over their rivals. The Blues were only the second visiting team to score six goals at White Hart Lane and extended the club's unbeaten run against Spurs to 17 matches.

Goals from Tore André Flo and Ramon Vega had left the teams even at half-time, but Chelsea took command early in the second. Roberto Di Matteo put the Blues back in front, Dan Petrescu extended the lead with a lob over Walker, Flo's emphatic strike finished off a neat one-two with Gianfranco Zola and Mark Nicholls added a fifth before Flo completed his hat-trick in stoppage time.
