Chelsea vs Tottenham: Pre-Match

Chelsea vs Tottenham

On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea will play Tottenham in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge for the 173rd time in a London derby that has been fiercely contested since a 2-1 home triumph on the Fulham Road 112 years ago, amid “cup-tie frenzy” and “partisan yelling between the two groups.”

Spurs have only won once in their last 31 league visits to Stamford Bridge, and have also lost nine of their last 13 games against a top-four team, such as the Blues, who are now in third place (they drew the other four). Antonio Conte’s side, on the other hand, won a thrilling late win against Leicester on Wednesday, putting them eight points behind third-placed Chelsea with four games remaining.

Player to Watch

Thiago Silva (No. 6) Centreback, Brazil: At the moment, Thiago Silva is a godsend for Chelsea. In these volatile times, the Brazilian has kept the back line calm and done everything he can at the back. While he didn’t have a particularly good game against City, his presence on the field is crucial. The Blues are failing to gain any traction, and their players are worn out. They require their leader to refocus on the task at hand in order to secure three points the next day.
