Chelsea vs Tottenham – Premier League: With Chelsea seeing the rug being pulled from under their feet, Tottenham might take a giant step in this match
Towards their objective of finishing amongst the top 4 spots of the Premier League.
That victory, that would leave Chelsea further from their ambition of qualifying for the Champions League, might also be a way for them to ensure they finish in that position.
Because, on a situation where two English clubs win the European competitions and finish outside of the top 4 (which could happen with Liverpool and Arsenal, for example), the 4th place would end up going to the Europa League.
But this match goes beyond that complicated Champions League situation, in terms of interest. The focus on what each of these managers can offer to the teams is a more productive topic.
Although it is certain that Chelsea won the title last season, the little that Antonio Conte is managing to give to the team on the very next season, dropping from the top 4 and not managing to do any better than disturbing Barcelona’s dominance on the Champions League’s 8th finals.
Mauricio Pochettino has been capable of maintaining, year after year, Tottenham on that fight.
On the long-term, the Argentinian’s work has been paying off much more for the Spurs than Conte’s work for the Blues.
Chelsea vs Tottenham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the head-to-head, this match places some demand on Chelsea, that will have to showcase that quality that they are not always able to show on the pitch.
Conte has been making experiments, recently, with some versions of a false 9 that seem to give some quality to his suggestion, although going against Hazard’s will.
The Spurs will wait until the final moments to decide whether or not they will utilize Harry Kane on a match that might end up being decisive.
