Tottenham vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Sunday 19th September 2021
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
When Leicester City and Chelsea meet in the FA Cup quarter-finals, all eyes will be on King Power Stadium. The Foxes earned a meeting with Frank Lampard’s side by defeating Wigan Athletic, Brentford, and Birmingham City, but they’ll have a lot larger fish to fry in Sunday’s match. Jamie Vardy, despite his recent struggles to find his goal-scoring touch, will be one to watch in the home team.
The Blues, on the other hand, are looking to capitalize on their dramatic 2-1 triumph against Manchester City in the English Premier League rivalry. Chelsea last won the FA Cup in the 2017/18 season, and they will no doubt be eager to replicate the feat. However
, as beating Leicester City at King Power Stadium is easier said than done, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Both managers can count on key players for Sunday’s showdown.
Tottenham vs Chelsea: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Chelsea.
- The last 3 meetings have all ended in under 2.5 goals.
- It’s been 3 years since Tottenham beat Chelsea at home in the league.
Tottenham vs Chelsea: Prediction
Five matches in all competitions, four wins, one draw, ten goals scored and only one conceded (a penalty).
It’s fair to say that Chelsea have picked up right where they left off last season under Tuchel as they look to continue their impressive run away at fierce rivals Tottenham.
Spurs have already proved themselves at home against a top side this season having beaten Man City in their opening Premier League game of the season.
However, Chelsea represents a different challenge and one that comes just three days after their Europa Conference League match away at Rennes, which may well have a physical effect on the Tottenham players.
When taking into account how strong Chelsea look particularly from a defensive point of view alongside their ability to find the net at any point through the dangerous Romelu Lukaku up front, backing the Blues to at least avoid defeat in this match appears a smart play, so consider Chelsea double chance.
