Chelsea hosts Tottenham Hotspur at the Stamford Bridge in a really nice London derby from the 10th round of the Premier League. Let’s give it a good look in our preview.
Two contenders for the Premier League title are facing each other. At this moment just two points separate them in the standings. Tottenham are leaders with 20 points while Chelsea are third with 18 points. Depending on some other results Chelsea would even top the league if they beat Spurs on Sunday.
Three wins in their last three matches – this is Chelsea’s solid shape in the Prem lately. Last weekend Frank Lampard’s team had a visit to Newcastle United which they won 2-0. Newcastle’s Fernandez scored himself an early own goal while in the 65th minute Tammy Abraham scored a second one for the Blues. It was a good game for Lampard’s team.
During the week Chelsea claimed another win, but in the Champions League. The Blues faced Rennes in France and acheived a 2-1 win.
Tottenham Hotspur are leaders in the Premier League with 20 points won so far. They are on par with the champion Liverpool, but a better goal difference puts them on top.
Last weekend Spurs faced Manchester City at home and reminded us how good they are with a 2-0 win. Son Heung-Min and Giovani Lo Celso scored for Jose Mourinho’s team.
During the week Tottenham recorded their 5th consecutive win in all competitions. The Londoners faced Ludogorets in Europa League and didn’t have any problems to take a 4-0 win. Carlos Vinicius scored twice for Tottenham while Winks and Lucas Moura scored as well.
That’s our preview for the Premier League derby clash between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. We expect some fireworks here because these two teams are among the title contenders this season. Let’s see what they are going to offer us.
Manchester United approach the 6th round from 15th place in the standings, so certainly they have a lot to work on at the moment. The Red Devils have just 6 points won from four matches played and there’s a huge room for improvement at the moment.
During the week Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team achieved an amazing win to boost its confidence. Manchester United faced PSG in the Champions League and went home with a terrific 2-1 win at the Parc des Princes. Bruno Fernandes from a penalty kick and Marcus Rashford scored for the English side.
Everybody is talking about Axel Tuanzebe’s performance against PSG. The 22-years old defender played 90 minutes against PSG and made an amazing impression with his capabilities. Most surely he’s going to start the next game as well.
Chelsea also had a Champions League game during the week, but they didn’t win it. The Blues hosted Europa League winners Sevilla at the Stamford Bridge, but they game ended with no goals – 0-0. Chelsea had some chances to score a winner, but the Spanish side defended well.
Frank Lampard could be making some changes for Chelsea’s next game. Players like Hakim Ziyech, Mateo Kovacic, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi all started from the bench against the Spaniards, but they could be in the line-up for the next game.
Manchester United and Chelsea are usually giving us some great matches, so we don’t have any doubts we are going to see one at the Old Trafford. The Red Devils’ performance in the Champions League was better, but Chelsea didn’t lose their game as well. It’s going to be a great one.
What’s happenning with Chelsea right now? The Blues are 4th in the league with 63 points, while the third Manchester United have the same amount of points. The 5th Leicester City is just one point behind and the Foxes are facing Manchester United in the final round. To be completely sure that they are going to finish in the Top 4 Chelsea need at least a point against Wolves on Sunday.
Frank Lampard’s team will try to recover after the dramatic 3-5 loss during the visit to Liverpool. It does not happen everyday to score three times at the Anfield, but Giroud, Abraham and Pulisic’ goals in Alisson’s net was not enough.
Chelsea will face Arsenal in the FA Cup final, but before this they must do their job and secure their qualification for the Champions League.
Wolverhampton Wanderers on the other hand will try to keep the 6th place in the league, being just one point ahead of the 7th Tottenham Hotspur. Nuno Santo’s boys had a terrific season, so keeping the 6th place will be a pretty major achievement for them. The problem is they need to win at the Stamford Bridge to be one hundred percent sure they got it.
Wolves are showing good form in their last three matches – two wins and one draw. But let’s see how they will do against a very motivated Chelsea team in London.
It’s time once again for one of the big football derbies of London. We are heading to the Wembley Stadium in the English capital, because Tottenham Hotspur hosts Chelsea in a match from the 13th round of the Premier League.
Both teams are currently in the Top 4 of the league, being separated by just one point in favour of Chelsea. Right now Tottenham are 4th in the standings with 27 points and a record of 9 wins and 3 losses. Spurs are currently on 5 points behind the leader Manchester City, so they can’t allow themselves any mistakes, if they want to stay in the title race.
In their last five games Tottenham won four of their matches, but suffered a home defeat against Manchester City at the Wembley. Now Mauricio Pochettino’s boys must prove that they can do better in these big derbies. Since their loss against the Cityzens, Spurs won two matches – against Wolves and Crystal Palace.
Tottenham visited Crystal Palace in the previous round and enjoyed a 1-0 win at the Selhurst Park. The only goal in the game was scored by Juan Foyth in the middle of the second half.
Meanwhile Chelsea are third in the Premier League standings with 28 points won so far and a record of 8 wins and 4 defeats. The Blues are still unbeaten since the beginning of the campaign. In their last five games they won three times, but also made two draws – against Manchester United and Everton. Now Maurizio Sarri’s team do not have any other option, but to return on the winning road.
In their last game Sarri’s boys made a dissapointing 0-0 draw duing the home game against Everton.
That’s our thoughts about the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Chelsea at the Wembley. Good luck!
Burnley welcomes Chelsea in a game from the 10th round of the English Premier League. Stay with us, because we are about to take a look at this clash at the Turf Moor.
Burnley are currently 13th in the league standings with 8 points won. Their record shows 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats. In their last five games Sean Dyche’s boys won twice, suffered two defeats and made one draw.
Burnley’s last fixture was unsuccessful. The team suffered a heavy 0-5 defeat during the visit to the champion Manchester City. The visiting team was totally outplayed by Pep Guardiola’s team, which was not a big surprise, of course. City are a far bigger club. But Sean Dyche probably hoped that his players would do a little bit better against the Cityzens.
Before losing to City, Burnley were in a run of three consecutive games without a defeat – two wins over Bournemouth and Cardiff City, and a draw against Huddersfield Town.
Chelsea are a title contender once again, after performing in a dissapointing way last season. Right now the Blues are 3rd in the Premier League standings, but trailing on just 2 points behind the leader Manchester City. Chelsea have 21 points and a record of 6 wins and 3 draws. But it’s kind of worrying that Maurizio Sarri’s side made three draws in its last four matches.
In their last game Chelsea made a 2-2 draw at home against Manchester United. Antonio Rudiger and Ross Barkley saved the point for Chelsea. It was 1-2 for United just seconds before the end of the game, but Barkley scored a very important equalizing goal.
That’s what we had to say about the Premier League clash between Burnley and Chelsea at the Turf Moor. We wish you good luck!
