Match preview

With the possibility to consolidate their hold on fourth area in the Premier League table, Tottenham Hotspur welcome Chelsea to North London for a funding derby on Sunday mid-day.

The Lilywhites went out 2-0 victors over West Pork United in their newest contest, while the Blues' misery proceeded in a 1-0 home loss to Southampton.

While former Chelsea instructor Antonio Conte is not likely to take the reins against his former club as he continues to recuperate from gallbladder surgery, Cristian Stellini's perfect record accountable remains undamaged - going three for three throughout the see of West Pork last weekend break.

The only significant occasion of a dull opening 45 was West Ham leaving an additional debatable handball charge claim - Spurs and also Chelsea can empathise with each other there - but 'Second Half FC' came to the fore as Emerson Royal and Child Heung-min sent Spurs into the Champions Organization areas.

With fifth-placed Newcastle United and third-placed Manchester United doing battle in the EFL Cup last in the future Sunday, this weekend's London derby is a stunning opportunity for Spurs to steer clear of the Magpies as well as decrease the space to the Red Devils - that will ultimately have a video game in hand - to simply 4 points.

Attempting to predict which variation of Tottenham will turn up every weekend break is a fool's task, but Spurs are now on the brink of winning 3 succeeding Premier League home games with clean sheets for the first time given that 2019, and not because December 2021 have the Lilywhites drawn a league match at the Tottenham Hotspur Arena.

Conte will no question be keeping a watchful eye on process from his Italian base this weekend break, having actually been at the centre of a warmed exchange with Thomas Tuchel back in August's Stamford Bridge draw, however the German's replacement is succumbing the poisoned chalice.

Calls from some sections of the Chelsea fanbase to give Graham Potter the boot are growing louder as well as louder adhering to last weekend break's miserable 1-0 loss to cellar side Southampton, but such demands are still falling on deaf ears as the Blues board maintain their confidence in the under-fire Englishman.

Fresh from offering their very own supervisor the boot, Southampton relied upon a hallmark James Ward-Prowse free kick to do the job at Stamford Bridge, leading to boos from the residence group that could be listened to all across the resources at the full time whistle.

A 4th game without success in the top flight leaves Chelsea stuck in mid-table obscurity in 10th area - 11 factors worse off than their upcoming opponents - but Todd Boehly is reportedly still continuing to back Potter, even if some members of the board do not share his belief.

Nonetheless, the Englishman can just boast a paltry three success from his last 16 video games accountable of cry, that can not climb any type of higher up the positions regardless of what transpires this weekend, as well as racking up simply three goals in their last 9 matches in all events is simply undesirable for a club of Chelsea's calibre.

The visitors' form on the road creates extremely grim analysis also, as they have embarrassingly stopped working to win any of their last nine away games since beating Red Bull Salzburg in October, yet August's intense 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge expanded Chelsea's unbeaten run versus Spurs to a commendable 6 matches.

There has actually been little movement in the Tottenham therapy space of late, with Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma, Hugo Lloris as well as Ryan Sessegnon all still sidelined, and the previous has now undergone successful surgical treatment on his ACL rupture - likely providing him unavailable up until November.

Emerson's redemption arc continued in last weekend's London derby, and also the Brazilian need to for that reason continue to hold off Pedro Porro in the right-wing back slot, while Oliver Skipp should certainly win the fight to companion Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the centre.

Utilising Ben Davies in the left-wing back location likewise paid dividends for Stellini against West Pork, as well as having actually racked up off the bench for the 4th time in the Premier League this term, Child - that was not at 100% before last Sunday's video game - can expect to instantly displace Richarlison.

Meanwhile, the result of Chelsea's clash with Southampton was rather overshadowed by Cesar Azpilicueta's significant head injury, however the Spaniard has now been discharged from hospital and is recouping back residence.

Armando Broja, Christian Pulisic and also Edouard Mendy are keeping Azpilicueta business in the treatment area, but cries have actually received a significant double increase with N'Golo Kante, that is now back in group training as well as supposedly on the verge of signing a new deal.

Kante will not be thought about for mins right now, yet Potter will be expected to take into consideration significant alterations either way, with Mykhaylo Mudryk, Raheem Sterling and also Kai Havertz targeting returns to the final third, while Thiago Silva and also Reece James need to be fit sufficient to begin at the back too.

Tottenham Hotspur feasible beginning lineup:
Forster; Rosemary, Dier, Lenglet; Emerson, Skipp, Rock, Davies; Kulusevski, Kane, Boy

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Kepa; James, Silva, Badiashile, Chilwell; Kovacic, Fernandez; Mudryk, Felix, Sterling; Havertz

We claim: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Chelsea
Tottenham met an extremely passive West Pork team last weekend, which will not hold true against Chelsea's riches of assaulting options, even if Potter's side have been absolutely nothing except woeful in recent weeks.

Despite Stellini being able to post three wins from 3 games accountable until now, Spurs remain an extremely unforeseeable team, and also with Chelsea being handed a riches of fitness boosts ahead of Sunday's video game, we can envisage Potter's men travelling back to Stamford Bridge with a share of the spoils - not that it will do much to improve the Englishman's standing with the fans.
