 The Fight between Century-Long Rivals: Tottenham Hotspurs vs Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspurs vs Chelsea

Tottenham faced Chelsea twice this season in 2 separate matches. Chelsea currently occupy second place while Tottenham is seventh.

Trying to find out who is the best player on both teams? On 19 September 2021 at 15:30 UTC, Tottenham plays Chelsea at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. The match is a Premier League fixture.  


Chelsea's recent encounter demonstrated that the team was not overpowering, but it's important to appreciate how they managed to maintain control and composure for the entire game. Chelsea clearly has championship defense as its number one priority. For Tuchel's men, the three points are all that matters. However, what about Tottenham?  


Spurs, with their injured Son Heung-min and Eric Dier, travelled to Brittany without two more of their stars: Giovani lo Celso, Cristian Romero, and Davinson Sanchez, who are all training in Croatia after refusing to return to England with their Premier League teams after the World Cup Qualifiers last week. Spurs started brightly in their previous game and they showed potential early on, but they required a stroke of luck to create their first opportunity; a Tanguy Ndombele-inspired movement. Spurs captain Kane's European record-breaking night ended when he was substituted in the second half for Emerson. Chelsea, Wolves, and Arsenal are all still left to play in the league this month, so it is evident that Wolves have a lot to work on as they seek their first win of the season, which will be three games in a row for the first time in the season. Let the numbers do the talking for the next match! 


Chelsea started the Premier League viciously as they kicked off with 3 wins, no losses and a draw against Liverpool last 29th of August. They have won 13 away games against Tottenham, their most wins on the road on par with Southampton and Man City. Chelsea is looking to extend their unbeaten run against Tottenham to six this coming Sunday. While also looking to extend their away game win streak against Tottenham to three for the first time since August 2005.  


Seeing Bergwijn and Moura injure their ankles last night against Rennes sent a cold shiver down the spines of all Spurs fans. But with Tottenham’s one-two punch of Defender Eric Dier and Forward Son Heung-min looking ‘hopeful’ according to reports, and Midfielder Tanguy Ndombele who gave a commanding performance last Wednesday night against Rennes. Tottenham will surely give Chelsea an epic battle. 


Continuing their heated rivalry each game and both teams giving their best in an end-to-end thrilling attack. We would surely expect nonstop haymakers from both teams and giving their all to make their team and fans proud. We predict that Chelsea will win the Match Result but it wouldn’t be easy because Tottenham would surely not give up without giving their century-long rivals a fight. This game should end 1-2 in favor of Chelsea. 


Chelsea will once again take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, this time in London, at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 19, 2021, at 11:30 PM (GMT+8).
