Match facts

  • Chelsea are unbeaten against Tottenham Hotspur in 24 of their last 25 meetings at Stamford Bridge in all competitions.
  • The Blues have scored at least 2 goals in 9 out of their last 10 meetings against Spurs in all competitions.
  • Chelsea have lost 3 of their last 5 matches at home in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Spurs have won their last 3 league games.
  • The visitors have conceded at least 1 goal in 5 out of their last 6 matches in all competitions.
  • The last meeting between the two sides ended in a 2-0 defeat for Tottenham Hotspurs.

Chelsea Form: W-L-D-W-D-L

Chelsea are heading into this fixture on the back of a 2-0 loss to Manchester United at home in the league. It was a controversial match by all means which many believe should have gone in the favour of the hosts. However, the Red Devils outsmarted their rivals and handed Chelsea an embarrassing defeat on their home turf. The hosts were also held to back to back draws in the league against the likes of Leicester and Arsenal with 2-2. While these results were respectable, a lot more is expected of the Chelsea in the league. They have also had their fair share of losses, most notably against Newcastle United in January.

Even though the Blues are sitting at the 4th place with 41 points, they are still 9 points behind the third-placed Leicester City. Furthermore, they run the risk of being leapfrogged by other sides like Spurs, Sheffield United, and Manchester United. Therefore, any outcome apart from a win here will not bode with Frank Lampard’s men.

Another problem that Lampard needs to deal with, is squad selection. Chelsea will play Bayern Munich on Tuesday at home and he will need his boys well-rested for that fixture. This means he will have to select his playing XI for this game carefully, without compromising on the Champions League game.

Key Players

N’Golo Kante will miss this game due to injury. Michy Batshuayi was abysmal in the game against United last week and Lampard may choose to bench him for this fixture. Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham, and Andreas Christensen will be evaluated ahead of the kickoff for the playing XI.

Tottenham Hotspur Form: W-D-W-W-W-L

Spurs have been enjoying a good run in the Premier League of late. They have won their last three matches against the likes of Norwich City, Manchester City, and Aston Villa. Interestingly, Spurs have scored at least 2 goals in all of those matches.

However, that was before the injury of Son Heung-Min. The 27-year-0ld Korean was absolutely quintessential for the team’s superior performance, especially with Harry Kane also out due to injury. Up until his injury, he was in a superb goal-scoring form but by the early looks of it, his absence may prove to be costly for the London side. Case in point, Spurs played host to RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday. They lost that match by 1-0, with Leipzig holding possession for most of the time.

Even though Spurs have found some stability in the Premier League under the rule of Jose Mourinho, things are not all that great. Other teams are closing the gap very swiftly and the visitors now run the risk of losing the European playoffs positions. This, combined with Spurs’ poor record against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, means that the side is not likely to start as the favourites.

At the same time, this match marks the return of Mourinho to Chelsea. The Portuguese, knowing well that the chances of his side winning here aren’t that great, will still manage to pull a surprise and give the fans value for their money.

Key Players

With all the key performers for Spurs now sidelined, Mourinho faces an uphill task of choosing his playing XI. Serge Aurier and Japhet Tanganga may find a place in the line-up while Dele Alli may be benched. Lucas Moura should retain his place in the starting team while Hugo Lloris, as usual, will need to step up and keep the Chelsea strikers at bay.
