Featured Game | Chelsea vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Why you should back Chelsea

The Blues will be eager to put on a better performance than last week for their home crowd, and they should be confident. They dominated Spurs four times over the course of last season, beating them a combined 8-0 in two EPL meetings and two League Cup matches. Chelsea had a 70-26 advantage in shots (25-9 on target) over those four matchups. It should hold the ball for much of the game, as it averaged a 10 percent higher possession rate (62.3-52) in 2021-22. It kept possession an average of 60 percent in the four matchups with Tottenham last season.     

New addition Raheem Sterling has played at Stamford Bridge many times, but he’s no longer the enemy and will be out to make a good impression. The speedy 27-year-old scored 13 goals and set up five for league champ Manchester City last season. The Chelsea defense should remain tough to penetrate as long as manager Thomas Tuchel is devising the tactics. Thiago Silva is back and has been joined by newcomer Kalidou Koulibaly in the middle. The Blues allowed 33 goals last season, third-fewest in the league, and had a plus-43 goal differential.   

Why You Should Back Tottenham 

The Blues defense has been tough to crack, but Spurs certainly have the talent to do it. And Koulibaly is still acclimating to his new teammates in the middle, and the Blues lost both Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the offseason. That could mean Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min find their opportunities this week. Tottenham won in a rout despite neither of the top scorers getting on the board against Southampton. Son had a team-high 23 goals, while Kane scored 17 after a slow start. Last week’s goals came from unlikely sources, including an own goal.

Son did have one assist against the Saints, but it was Dejan Kulusevski who had the biggest impact. The Swedish midfielder scored a goal and set up another, and defender Eric Dier and midfielder Ryan Sessegnon also got on the score sheet. Kulusevski had five goals and eight assists last season and has been a strong complement to the top two. Richarlison came over in the offseason from Everton, where he scored 43 goals in four seasons. Hugo Lloris remains in the net, and the Frenchman had 16 clean sheets and a 71.4 save percentage in 2021-22.
