4th February 2021 – 21:00, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London
Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are going to face each other in the derby match of the Premier League 22nd round. Both sides want to secure the Champions League spot at the end of the season and search for the victory.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea Match Preview & Team News
Nothing has been going well for the hosts starting from their clash against Liverpool. Aside from the fact that they lost 3:1, the Spurs cannot count on injured Harry Kane. Tottenham’s key player will be off for some time, and Jose Mourinho needs to implement a backup plan. It didn’t go well against Brighton as the Spurs lost 1:0. Another tough challenge is ahead of them since Chelsea is coming to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The hosts are six points behind the fourth-placed Leicester City, with one game in hand. However, they lost twice in a row and need to get back on the winning track. Heung-Min Son and the lads need to improve their home displays as they booked only two wins in the previous five matches. They also need to strengthen defense when playing at the home ground, as Tottenham conceded 12 times. The home side needs to put much better display if they want to win this game.
After sacking Frank Lampard, Chelsea picked up four points from two rounds. They drew against Wolves and booked a 2:0 win over Burnley last weekend. Thomas Tuchel’s side hasn’t conceded in these two games, and it seems the Blues can continue with high-level performances. The visitors are leveled up with their rivals in the table and want to challenge the top four. Tammy Abraham and the lads have been doing very well in the front, but they need to tighten up the defense. Chelsea lost four times on their last five outings and needs to improve away displays. The Blues’ fans are also worried about poor performances in derbies this season, and we’ll see if Tuchel can bring some changes.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Neither of the sides has been consistent lately. However, Tottenham is on a decline, while Chelsea shows signs of improvement. We believe the visitors can celebrate in this match and get back home with all three points.
Goals Market Prediction
Both teams have been pretty productive, while they haven’t been too disciplined in the back this season. We expect both teams to score, and therefore, nets shouldn’t remain still.
