Chelsea are playing against Tottenham in a match of round 28 of the English Premier League. Over the weekend, The Blues lost the final of Carabao Cup versus Manchester City, but they should be happy with their performance on Sunday. During the whole game, Chelsea didn’t give up and even had their chances for success in the regular time. If Chelsea show the same performance on Wednesday, we don’t doubt that the Spurs will have problems.
The returning of Harry Kane couldn’t inspire his teammates, and Tottenham lost as a guest of Burnley with 2-1. In recent weeks, the Spurs have problems in the middle of the pitch, and this affected their results negatively. The series of wins of Tottenham had to end sooner or later, but the strategy of Mauricio Pochettino to play with three players on defence didn’t work against The Clarets.
We are about to see if Tottenham will play with the same strategy against Chelsea or the Argentinian manager will decide to use 4-1-2-1-2, which brought him success in the first game against The Blues in the Premier League. With a vital role for the victory was Dele Alli who didn’t stop pressing Jorginho in almost every attacking move of Chelsea, but this time the English player is injured, and Tottenham don’t have a similar type of player in their squad. When both sides played against each other in Carabo Cup, Pochettino started Christian Eriksen in the role of Dele Alli, but the Danish player couldn’t handle this task and Chelsea dominated over Tottenham in the first half, before the Spurs again to start to use the tactic with three in defence.
Tottenham’s games on Stamford Bridge are always tough for them, and they have just one win in the previous 25 fixtures there. Chelsea have lost the final on Sunday, but they should be inspired with their performance against the Champions, and we think that with the help of their fans they will not lose on Wednesday night. At this moment, only Leicester took the three points from Stamford Bridge, while against the leading teams, Chelsea recorded two wins (Arsenal and Manchester City) and two draws (Liverpool and Manchester United).
