Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea – Premier League Match Review
A London Derby awaits Spurs as they continue to challenge for European Football
Two London rivals are set to come face to face at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, as Tottenham Hotspur face Graham Potter’s Chelsea looking to finish in the top four for the second successive season.
Tottenham are having a good season so far, and they currently find themselves in fourth place with 42 points and are currently on track to qualify for the Champions League once more. They will face AC Milan in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie on Wednesday 8th March 2023.
The most recent win against a fellow top four team for Antonio Conte’s team was their sensational 1 – 0 win against Manchester City in February. This was also the game that saw Harry Kane break Jimmy Greaves’ all-time goal scoring record for Tottenham.
Chelsea are not having the strongest season by their high standards. Potter’s Blues currently sit in 10th place with just 31 points. They do though still have an outside chance of qualifying for European football come the end of the season, as they are only 4 points adrift of 7th place.
The Blues have only won 2 of their last 10 Premier League games in 2023, with their last win coming against Crystal Palace, beating Patrick Vieira’s side 1-0 thanks to a goal from Kai Havertz in the second half.
Chelsea’s most recent match saw them defeated 1-0 by Southampton, who currently sit at the very bottom of the league table in 20th place.
In the most recent match for Antonio Conte’s Lilywhites, they secured a crucial 2 – 0 victory against David Moyes’ West Ham United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Emerson Royal and Heung-Min Son scoring the all-important goals.
Tottenham and Chelsea have met 174 times with their first game coming on 18th December 1909, where Chelsea won 2-1 courtesy of goals from Jimmy Windridge and James Bradshaw. William Minter got the goal for Spurs.
Historically, Chelsea have the better record in this fixture with 77 victories, with Spurs currently on 55 wins to date.
Tottenham Hotspur’s top goal scorer in the Premier League so far this season is of course Harry Kane, who has 17 goals to date. Rodrigo Bentancur and Heung-Min Son have 5 goals each, whilst midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is third with 4 goals so far this season.
Kai Havertz is Chelsea’s top goal scorer in the league this season, closely followed by England internationals Raheem Sterling (3 Goals) and Mason Mount (3 Goals). Kalidou Koulibaly and Jorginho (now at Arsenal) have 2 goals each.
Spurs will be looking to take advantage of Chelsea’s poor form under Graham Potter as they look to beat their London rivals for the first time in the Premier League since their 3 – 1 win at White Hart Lane on Saturday 24th November 2018.
