EPL Predictions: Chelsea vs Tottenham



Chelsea and Tottenham are two London clubs whose matches attract global attention.

Today, the two sides clash yet again, in what promises to be an exciting encounter.

Since their victory in the Champions League two years ago, Chelsea have been hit by some major departures, like Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger.

Even now, their side looks unsettled as many key players like Pulisic and Jorginho are apparently, looking for a way out.

Despite this, Chelsea began their 2022/23 Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park.

With Lukaku and Werner gone, the obvious question – Will new signing Sterling fill the goal-scoring gap? 

Manager Tuchel needs to answer this question fast if Chelsea want to stay competitive.

Meanwhile, Tottenham began their campaign in style, smashing Southampton 4-1 at home.

Antonio Conte has created a team that looks well-oiled and seamless.

Interestingly, even though Son and Kane failed to hit the net, Tottenham still managed to create plenty of chances and goals.

Team news

For Chelsea, Mateo Kovacic is ruled out due to knee injury.

Another key player Marcos Alonso will also miss out as he is still trying for a move to Barcelona.

Tuchel is likely to deploy his usual 3-4-2-1 formation.

Edouard Mendy will don the goal-keeper gloves.

Captain Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and new signing Kalidou Koulibaly, who was impressive against Everton, will form the three-man defensive unit.

Reece James and Ben Chilwell are expected to take up the wing-back slots on the right and left sides.

We might see some minutes for new signing, Marc Cucurella in place of Chilwell.

Kante and Jorginho, who scored the only goal of the game against Everton, will be the defensive midfielders.

Conor Gallagher and Carney Chukwuemeka will be on the bench but might get a chance.

The goal-scoring burden will be carried by Mason Mount and Raheem Sterling as the attacking midfielders and Havertz functioning as the lone centre-forward.

For Tottenham, Clement Lenglet is set to miss out due to a thigh injury.

Thankfully, new signing Richarlison is available for selection and could make his debut, after missing the season opener due to suspension.

Hugo Lloris will be the goal-keeper and Conte will prefer his trusted three musketeers- Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies in defence.

Emerson Royal and Ryan Sessegnon will line up as the two wing-backs.

Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will be the defensive pivots, with Yves Bissouma as the back-up.

When it comes to the forward line, Conte can count on one of the most dreaded combinations in the Premier League – Son on the left, Kane in the centre and Kulusevski on the right.

Richardson will start on the bench but will surely get an opportunity.

Chelsea Likely 11

.Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Sterling; Havertz

Tottenham Likely 11

Probable Lineup (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

Vital stats

Chelsea have won their last four matches against Tottenham in all competitions.

Of their 60 Premier League encounters, Chelsea has won 33 and Tottenham have won only 7.

20 matches have ended in a draw.

Chelsea have won their opening Premier League home fixture only 3 times in the past 7 seasons.


History favours Chelsea but current form favours Tottenham.

We believe Tottenham has toughened up mentally and improved strategically after the induction of Conte.

Hence Tottenham will win 2-0.

WATCH: Georgina Rodriguez makes huge claim on Cristiano Ronaldo’s retirement in Football




Cristiano Ronaldo

Georgina Rodriguez made a huge claim on the future of her husband and star player, Cristiano Ronaldo, in Football. In a brief interaction with a host recently, Rodriguez was asked about the time left for Cristiano to make an impact at the highest level. Georgina looked honest in her approach to the question of the host and claimed something the fans would not love to hear.

Georgina claimed that the Portugal star has maybe one year more from him at the highest level. She felt that Ronaldo might play two more years before retiring and not more than that. She was however not sure if he would play for just one or two years and added that the Al Nassr star could also play more than that.

Watch the video of Georgina Rodriguez here –


“Cristiano one more year, then it’s over. Maybe two, I don’t know,” said Rodriguez in the little chat she had with the host. The video has gone viral on X and the fans have started sharing it on different platforms. Some of the fans feel that Georgina might be right, while others feel that she could be wrong, given the fitness and longevity of the star player.

Legacy of Cristiano Ronaldo

On the 5th of February, Ronaldo celebrated his 39th birthday. He is currently one of the oldest players in the world. In the past, players at this age would have retired way back. But the fitness and consistency of Ronaldo make him play the sport as long as he wishes. In his career so far, Ronaldo has won many major leagues for Portugal and league teams like Real Madrid, Al Nassr, and Manchester United.

With United, Portugal won some major leagues like the FA Cup and the Champions League. With Real Madrid, the 39-year-old won the leagues like the UCL, Copa Del Rey and La Liga. He won it three consecutive times for Real Madrid. For Portugal, Cristiano had a huge contribution to Portugal. He has the most number of appearances and goals for an international team and won the Euro 2016 with Portugal.

England and Real Madrid player Jude Bellingham was slapped with a Red Card during the La Liga game against Valencia. In the game, the home team, Valencia was leading by 2-0 after 30 minutes before Madrid scored in the injury time of the first half. Vinicius Junior opened the scoring for Madrid while Hugo Duro (27′) and Roman Yaremchuk (30′) scored a goal each.

In the 76th minute, Junior scored an equalizer to keep the team in the game. However, in the injury time of the second half, Bellingham was given a red card as he argued with the referee against calling it a full-time before he could score. In reply, the match official decided to slap the England international with a Red Card. The team coach Carlo Ancelotti wasn’t happy with the verdict as the Three Lions player was making a pass at the time.

“I think what’s just happened is unprecedented. It’s never happened to me,” Ancelotti told reporters.

“We had possession of the ball and the match should have been finished when Valencia had the ball.

“What bothers us is the red card for Bellingham because he didn’t say anything insulting. He was frustrated of course,” said Ancelotti, adding that Bellingham had used a common English swearword when telling the referee it was a goal.

We are annoyed with Jude Bellingham’s Red Card: Carlo Ancelotti

“We were annoyed with Bellingham’s red card. He didn’t say any insults. He said in English ‘it’s a f—ing goal,’ but he was just saying what we were all thinking … [The referee] allowed play to continue. I think he made a mistake.”

“[Bellingham] was clear in what he said,” Ancelotti added. “He was quite vehement [in his reaction] but that’s normal, after what happened. It wasn’t an insult, not at all.”
