Tottenham vs Chelsea on Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be the match of the weekend. The match will certainly be very much crucial for both the teams. The result of this match might prove to be the decider in terms of top-four position in the League. Chelsea are currently situated at the fourth position in the League table with 29 points in 17 matches so far. On the other hand, Tottenham Hotspur are at the fifth position in the League table with 26 points in the same number of matches. So, Tottenham Hotspur will move ahead of Chelsea in the League table if they can secure a win against Chelsea on Sunday. On the other hand, Frank Lampard’s men will also be desperate to get all three points from this match to stay at the fourth position in the League table.
Tottenham Hotspur are playing really well under the management of Jose Mourinho. They were beaten by Manchester United only in the Premier League after Jose Mourinho took the managerial job. They were victorious against Wolves in the previous game-week by a margin of 2-1. It was not easy for Tottenham Hotspur to collect all three points against Wolves in the away match. So, now they will certainly be more confident to get a win against the Blues in the home match.
On the other hand, Chelsea have been able to win only one out of last five matches so far in the Premier League. Frank Lampard’s men are not looking very much comfortable in recent matches. They will certainly find it difficult to get a win against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Tottenham vs Chelsea team news:
The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho will certainly get almost all his players in the match against Chelsea on Sunday. Hugo Lloris will not be present in the squad due to his long term injury. On the other hand, Jose Mourinho will have to think about the position of Jan Vertonghen as the Belgian defender has been playing as the centre back before the arrival of Jose Mourinho. Now, the manager is using him as the left-back.
Jan Vertonghen started off his career as a left-back. However, he moved to centre back position in the latter half of his career. Jose Mourinho can use Danny Rose as the left-back. However, he is preferring Vertonghen in that position to give his side the much needed defensive stability.
The manager of the Blues, Frank Lampard will also get most of the players ahead of this match. Though, Fikayo Tomori is still doubtful to start a match for the Blues at this moment. Ruben Loftus Cheek is recovering pretty well and from the next month onwards he can be back in the squad of the Blues.
