Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Stamford Bridge

Date: 1st April 2018

Kick-off time – 16:00 GMT

Antonio Conte’s second season as Chelsea’s manager has not gone entirely according to plan, however, the Blues can still end the season inside the top four and maybe win the FA Cup too.

The Blues are currently 5 points adrift of 5th placed Tottenham whom they face here and a defeat would send them 8 points below the top four with just 7 games to go.

They can also close the gap to 2 points if they get a win here, so this gamei is absolutely crucial for both sides.

The Blues have won just 3 of their 9 league games this  calendar year, and they have struggled at home against Leicester City and Bournemouth in recent months.

Tottenham were looking to challenge for the Premier League title again this season, but after a series of poor results, their most realistic target at the moment is a top four finish and the FA Cup.

They have struggled away from home recently even though they have not lost any of their last 6 away days.

Tottenham have won 4 of their last 11 games.

Harry Kane is set to return for this game and he could be the difference here just like he was against Arsenal.

Chelsea have four wins and one loss from their last 6 games against Tottenham.
