Sunday’s English Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea is scheduled for the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. In contrast, Chelsea was defeated 1-0 by Southampton in the league. James Ward-Prowse, a star midfielder, scored the winning goal for Southampton.
In the league, Tottenham Hotspur defeated David Moyes’ West Ham United 2-0 to enter this match. Tottenham Hotspur won the game thanks to goals from Brazilian right-back Emerson Royal and South Korean forward Son Heung-min in the second half.
Spurs are currently fourth in the league, seven points behind Manchester United, who are third. In January, they acquired two players on loan, signing Dutch attacker Arnaut Danjuma and Spanish right-back Pedro Porro.
Concerns have been raised regarding Son Heung-min’s appearance; The 30-year-old forward is regarded as one of the league’s best forwards, but he hasn’t reached the same heights as he did in previous seasons. Dejan Kulusevski has put in some good performances, but Son’s average performances and Richarlison’s few league games have made Tottenham Hotspur more reliant on Harry Kane to run the attack.
Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Chelsea
Chelsea has won 19 of the 37 head-to-head matches between the two teams, lost eight, and drawn 10. Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur’s star striker, has scored 17 goals in 24 league appearances this season.
For Tottenham Hotspur, South Korean attacker Son Heung-min has scored five goals in 20 league appearances this season. Chelsea’s German forward Kai Havertz has made 19 starts this season and has scored five goals in the league. Chelsea attacker Raheem Sterling has contributed six goals in 14 league appearances this season.
Hugo Lloris, Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma, Ryan Sessegnon, and Rodrigo Bentancur remain sidelined in the Tottenham treatment room. Hugo Lloris has recently undergone successful surgery to repair an ACL rupture, likely making him unavailable until November.
The Brazilian should continue to hold off Pedro Porro in the right-wing back slot, while Oliver Skipp should win the battle to partner Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the center. Emerson’s redemption story continued in the London derby last weekend.
Stellini’s use of Ben Davies in the left wing-back area against West Ham also paid off, and Son, who wasn’t 100% before last Sunday’s game, should replace Richarlison right away after scoring off the bench for the fourth time this season.
