Chelsea vs Tottenham

Chelsea Vs Tottenham Preview and Prediction

A London Derby to kick off this weekends Premier League football. Only one point separates the two sides. With top four race cracking up, who would prevail in the battle of these two rivals, We give Chelsea vs Tottenham Prediction below with preview and other details:

Preview:

Chelsea come into the fixture after collecting only four wins in the last fourteen games which is absolutely ridicolous. Loss last week against Man Utd takes their home losses upto 7 for the season (2 in Cup Competitions ). To win against Chelsea you just need to sit back and play in a low block. They are incapable of breaking teams as shown by three defeats to Solksjaer Utd side. Jose will follow the suit especially after what Chelsea did to his team last time, he would be brewing to get one over Lampard. With injury problems and only a slender one point lead, Chelsea have to get a favorable result against Spurs.

 

Spurs on the other hand have their own injury crisis. Jose’s frustations in the Press Conferences give an indication of the tasks ahead for his side. They come into this with a very lucky win over Aston Villa and a deserved loss to Leipzig. The norm under Mourinho has been clear from start which has been to play a defensive counter attacking football causing frustration among Spurs faithfuls. With all the doom and gloom they still sit 5th and a victory over fierce London rivals can take them upto 4th. Will Jose surprise us with a masterclass or lose to Lampard for third time in his illustrious career?

 

Injury News:

Chelsea:    There injury Problems just keep worsening as described by tweet below:

 

Spurs:    We all know that Kane and Son will be out for some time. Sissoko is recovering well but might not make it for this mega clash. ( Football.London ).

 

Predicted Line up: 

Now this is a tricky part. Chelsea lined up with 3 at the back when these sides met last time and also the Kepa situation with Lampard keeping him in out the last two times. Manchester United took advantage of Chelsea on counters and with injuries gallore, Lampard might change the shape up of his side.

Spurs on the other hand have so many injury problems which won’t surprise a defensive shape from Mourinho in lieu of counters using Moura, Alli and Bergwin.

So I expect them to line up as follows-

Chelsea:  Caballero  James  Christensen  Rudiger  Azpilicueta  Jorginho  Kovacic  Barkley  Willian   Mount   Giroud

Spurs:     Lloris   Aurier   Sanchez   Aldeweirald   Tanganga   Dier   Winks   Lo Celso  Alli  Bergwin   Moura

 

Head to Head ( 11v11 ):

  1. Chelsea have won 71 matches against Spurs while losing 54 and drawing around 40 matches over their illustrious history.
  2. It took Spurs whooping 28 years to register a victory at the Bridge when they cruised 3-1 past Conte’s side in 2018.
  3. Last 7 Premier League matches between these sides have seen Chelsea winning four and Spurs winning other three with no draws in between. Their last draw was the famous 2-2 draw in 15-16 season.
  4. These sides last played a goalless draw on 29th November 2015 when Mourinho was a Chelsea manager. Now he leads their Fiercest rivals to the Bridge.

 

Prediction:

Chelsea 1-0  Spurs

This is such a difficult match to predict. Chelsea’s form at the Bridge does not suggest a good reading for this fixture with Mourinho in the town. Fans of both teams will be buzzing for this match and with so much on the line we can expect a tight grueling fixture. With only one point gap separating them, no side would want to lose especially Chelsea with their form. Mourinho wouldn’t want to lose for a third time to Frank but the injury problem does not give a good reading. Both sides have massive injury problems with Chelsea having to face Bayern next. But I beleive that at some point this bad form at the bridge will be over and with Spurs coming into it with injury crisis, I beleive Chelsea will just nick it with a Giroud goal.

 

This was our Chelsea vs Tottenham Prediction.
