Tottenham to score 1.5+ goals
Heung-Min Son has been terrific in this season of the Premier League. He has scored eight goals till now, along with a crucial assist. He has hit almost 14 shots on goal, which consists of 25% of the total shots on goal hit by the whole club.
He has received excellent support from James Maddison (3 goals and 5 assists), and both of them have ensured that the team does not miss the services of Harry Kane.
The main threat for Chelsea in this match, though, is going to be Vicario, who has saved 32 goals this season and is in lightning form.
Richarlison is likely to start against Chelsea as the Brazilain forward is slowly finding his form back.
Predicted Lineup: Heung-Min Son, Richarlison, James Maddison, D. Kulusevski, Y. Bissouma, P.M. Sarr, Ben Davies, Christian Romero, Pedro Porro, M. van de Ven, and G. Vicario
For Chelsea, Nicolas Jackson and Rahem Sterling have been the saviors. Nicolas has not scored many goals but has created many chances and has scored nine shots on target.
Rahem Sterling, on the other hand, has scored around 13% of the club’s total shots on target and leads the goal-scoring charts with 3 goals. Cole Parmer is another player who is in good form with 2 goals and 2 assists in the 2023–24 season.
The Chelsea players have held onto the ball at an average rate of 61.58% but have not been able to convert their chances and have suffered defeats.
Reece James is fully fit and will feature at the RB for Chelsea.
Predicted Lineup: Jackson, C. Palmer, Rahem Sterling, N. Madueke, C. Gallagher, M. Caicedo, M. Cucurella, R. James, Thiago Silva, A. Disasi, and R. Sanchez
In the current scenario, Tottenham finds themselves in a more favorable position to clinch victory over Chelsea in the upcoming match. They're firing on all cylinders across the pitch, boasting an in-form squad with a solid dose of momentum behind them.
On the flip side, Chelsea is dealing with a confidence hit following a 2-0 defeat on their home turf against Brentford. This match is an opportunity for Tottenham to further solidify their lead at the summit of the table. For Chelsea, it's a chance at redemption and a shot at getting their campaign back on track.
Anticipated as a thrilling showdown, we believe Tottenham Hotspur holds the upper hand over Chelsea F.C. as they head into this clash.
