02/05: Daily Predictions: Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur

Betting Predictions

In this week’s exciting Premier League London derby, Chelsea, who finished an incredible turnaround over the weekend, will visit Tottenham Hotspur, who almost missed achieving a similar feat.

As his crop recovered magnificently against Aston Villa, Mauricio Pochettino—who is preparing for another Lilywhites reunion—saw Spurs pay a heavy price for a subpar first half as they suffered a painful 3-2 North London derby loss to Arsenal.

Tottenham currently trails fourth-place Aston Villa by seven points and will probably need to win most of their next five games to secure a Champions League spot. Chelsea, however, enters the match with a respectable 2-2 draw with Aston Villa. If not for a contentious VAR decision, Chelsea might have earned all three points.

Team News

Silva walks inside a crowded Stamford Bridge medical bay that also houses Enzo Fernandez, who had surgery to cure a bothersome hernia, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Romeo Lavia, Lesley Ugochukwu, Malo Gusto, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Malo Gusto.

In the upcoming hours, evaluations for Raheem Sterling (back), Robert Sanchez (unspecified), Christopher Nkunku (thigh), and Levi Colwill (toe) will also be required. Disasi (defense) may also be called up due to Silva’s most recent injury.

Timo Werner, a former Blue who is on loan from Tottenham to RB Leipzig, suffered a hamstring injury early in the team’s loss to Arsenal. He will undoubtedly miss his chance to see his old employers this week, since Chelsea players are now recovering from injuries.

Werner joins the permanent group of Tottenham’s injured players, which also includes Destiny Udogie (thigh), Fraser Forster (ankle), Ryan Sessegnon (thigh), and Manor Solomon (knee). However, Oliver Skipp may recover from a minor setback in time to make the team.

Probable Line-Up

Chelsea’s possible starting lineup:

Petrovic; Chalobah, Disasi, Badiashile, Cucurella; Caicedo, Gallagher; Madueke, Palmer, Mudryk; Jackson

Tottenham Hotspur’s possible starting lineup:

Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Davies, Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Son; Richarlison

Verdict

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals

The main storyline of Chelsea’s most recent games has been entertainment. In their last two league games alone, the Blues gave up seven goals, and in their previous eight games, they had allowed at least four goals.

Lately, Tottenham Hotspur has struggled to rely on their defense. Spurs have only kept one clean sheet in their previous sixteen Premier League games going into this one. I predict that Thursday’s game will conclude similarly to the fifteen of those games that had over 2.5 goals.

Tip: BTTS (YES)

There are goals in this match. At the present, neither Chelsea nor Spurs are able to defend. In their past two Premier League games, the Blues have given up seven goals. Spurs’ losses against Newcastle and Arsenal in the league have come at the expense of just as many goals conceded. In the latter third, both teams had potent weapons on display.
