CHELSEA V TOTTENHAM MATCH PREVIEW

Home » CHELSEA V TOTTENHAM MATCH PREVIEW

Fourth meets fifth in the race to finish in the top four, and thus the aftermath of this London Derby is sure to have a lot of implications.

Premier League 2019/2020
Date: Saturday 22nd, February
Kick-off: 13:30 pm
Venue: Stamford Bridge
TV Channel: BT Sport

Saturday’s early kick-off will see wounded Chelsea play hosts to Tottenham, as both sides bid to establish hold of the last Champions League spot up for grabs in the Premier League.

With just one win in their last six league games, Chelsea have seen their stock fall, and are now facing up to the danger of relinquishing their fourth place by the end of the weekend.

The Blues will feel hard done by with the officiating decisions that went against them in the loss to Manchester United here on Monday, their ninth defeat of the season and the second this year.

Tottenham are a typical contrast to their opponents, having pulled to within one point of Chelsea with a hat trick of league wins in recent weeks.

Manchester City, Southampton and Aston Villa all fell during that span, and Jose Mourinho will demand his wards continue to show heart despite the momentary setback of losing to Leipzig in their Champions League game in midweek.

Team news

Chelsea

N’Golo Kanté is not available for selection after suffering an injury versus United last time out, thus joining Marko Van Ginkel, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham in the treatment room.

Christian Pulisic, Andreas
Christensen and Callum Hudson-Odoi will face late fitness tests.

Tottenham

Son Heung-Min underwent surgery earlier this week after his arm injury and now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

While he is joined by Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko, Juan Foyth is a doubt.

Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday, and as well spark life back into their bid to qualify for the Champions League. They are winless in their last two here though, drawing Arsenal 2-2 before the loss to United. Chelsea’s last five league games(WLDDL)

Tottenham have taken maximum points from their last three topflight games, beating Manchester City, Southampton and lately Aston Villa. They have a chance to move two points clear of their opponents with a 12th league win here. Tottenham’s last five league games (LDWWW)

Suggested bets

Both sides are shorn of some potent attacking options upfront but this game should be lit up with some goals all the same. I’d expect both teams to be on the scoresheet, when taking into account how porous their defences could be. 3/4 odds is given for both teams to find the net in what should be an open and thrilling derby clash.

With the team missing both of their topscorers, Lucas Moura is 11/4 to score anytime while Willian is 16/5 on the same market.
