From round to round, the English Premier League offers us extremely strong clashes, confirming that it is currently the most attractive league in the world. And this Sunday on the Premiership program is the London derby, in which Tottenham will host Chelsea at their stadium, in a duel in which the loser will lose a step with the leading clubs in the standings, and the winner will jump up and look forward to the season with much confidence.
For the Spurs, this game comes at the bad time, and for several reasons. Part of the South American footballers are still in quarantine, and Heung-Min Son, the man who dragged the team forward this summer, has problems with the leaf injury. Also, the game against Crystal Palace last weekend showed that Tottenham's form is falling, as the host recorded a slight 3-0 victory, with complete dominance on the pitch. Of course, the Spurs did not like the visit to Rennes on Thursday, in the unattractive Europa Conference League, which further exhausted the team ahead of the derby. But they showed that they can score goals in Rennes, where they played 2: 2 with the home team in the first round of the Conference League.Bet with Bet9ja
Tottenham have had a pretty good opening of the season and coach Nuno Espirito Santo can be pleased. The club convinced Harry Kane to stay, and the team successfully defeated Manchester City and kept at the very top of the table until the debacle at the Palace. Still, the duel with Chelsea will be the biggest challenge for the Spurs this season, as the London rival is acting more powerful than ever. Thomas Tuchel's team still doesn't know about the defeat in the new season, and the series of victories was interrupted only by a draw with a player less away at Liverpool.
Bringing Romelu Lukaku from Inter was a complete success, as the Belgian already has three goals scored in the Premier League and one in the Champions League, and what he shows on the pitch is at the level of the best strikers of today. At Chelsea, Kante and Pulisic have injury problems, which gives room to Mate Kovacic, who played fantastically in the previous round against Aston Villa and will surely get minutes again.
The minimal victory against Zenit in the Champions League once again showed that Chelsea is a well-organized team. It's hard for the opponents to break through Chelsea’s defense, and sooner or later Chelsea gets the chance to score. It is one of the obvious candidates for the title, but in order to beat the clubs from Manchester and Liverpool, Tuchel has to win difficult away games like this one at Tottenham and he is very aware of that…
Confidence, form, injuries and playing qualities are all on Chelsea’s side in this match. A similar visit to Arsenal was successfully made by Tuchel's team recently, and we believe that this will be the case in this match too.
