The ground will shake when Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur take on each other in the on Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Both rivals are eyeing a place in the CL.
Noteworthy, Chelsea have been performing fine under Frank Lampard this term. They are supposed to take advantage of the fact that Spurs’ key striker Harry Kane remains sidelined. Accordingly, Frank Lampard’s home win should be considered.
Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, are not able to maintain their stability under Jose Mourinho. Without Harry Kane, who is being sidelined due to his injury, the Spurs are unlikely to gain any benefit from the match. At the beginning of the term, Chelsea have already defeated Tottenham Hotspur (2-0).
Chelsea’s loss against Man. United on Monday evening made it the only win for Chelsea in their last five home Premier League games (one win, one draw, and three losses). Each loss produced a scoring blank. They have lost five of their six distinct halves across those losses by a 1-0 scoreline.
On the other hand, Spurs have boosted their form, winning the last three Premier League games and proving their energy by netting the winner goal beyond the hour mark per time. This will increase their confidence and help to gain the second league victory at Stamford.
Conceding the opener remains an issue for Tottenham when traveling as they have done in three of their last four away league games.
