CHELSEA – TOTTENHAM
Chelsea welcomes Tottenham in probably the most important game of the English Premier League until the end of the season. Here are our football predictions for this crucial match at the Stamford Bridge in London.
After losing the visit to Manchester United last weekend, Chelsea’s advantage in front of Tottenham was reduced to just four points. It means that if Mauricio Pochettino’s boys manage to win at the Bridge, they will seriously improve their chances of winning the title. The difference would be reduced to just one point.
In same time, if Chelsea win the game, they will once again return in a pole position for the gold medals. The Blues’ manager Antonio Conte knows this, so he perfectly understands how important it is for Chelsea to win the game.
Antonio Conte is lucky to have almost a full squad for this very important game. His only worries are Thibaut Courtois and Marcos Alonso, who are doubtful for the game. Their participation in the match will be decided in the coming days.
As for Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino still can’t use two of his players – Erik Lamela and Harry Winks, who are out for the season. The back-up goalkeeper Michel Vorm is doubtful for the visit to the Stamford Bridge as well.
This is a really crucial game in the Premier League this weekend. Whoever wins could make a very big step towards the title. And if the finishes with a draw, then maybe Chelsea would be happier, because they will keep their current advantage in front of Spurs.
These were our football predictions for the match between Chelsea and Tottenham at the Stamford Bridge in London. It’s a really difficult to say which one of the two teams will prevail, but Chelsea surely have the advantage to play at home. This could be the major factor in this clash.
