Our expert made the prediction for the match Tottenham Hotspur – Chelsea as part of the 18th round of the English Premier League season 2019/20.
Chelsea seems to have started the period when everything ceased to work out, as it was before. Over the past three weeks, the Blues suffered two unexpected defeats from West Ham and Bournemouth, plus they lost to Everton away. In each of these games, Chelsea rivals used different strategies. Somewhere they crushed, as Everton did, somewhere giving up the initiative, they hit them with counterattacks. Chelsea was having problems with all this. Nevertheless, the team continues to be spectacular, creating quite a few moments. But has some problems efficiency with began to arise more and more often.
As for Tottenham Hotspur, the energy, that Mourinho brought in the team, remains. The team began to play easily, to move more, with great desire, those who did not do it, began to demand from themselves. Well, all this naturally affects the results too.
But there is one minus – the amount of conceded goals, or something, the ability of Tottenham Hotspur. In seven of eight matches with the Special One, the team conceded. The only one clean sheet is in the home game with Burnley when Tottenham won 5-0. Moreover, it has depended on various reasons recently. Tottenham had different reasons in terms of such a weak defensive game. Somewhere individual skills somewhere in the supporting zone and the goalkeeper did not help out.
Tottenham plays at home and, in my opinion, has better chances today.
Our prediction: BTS and Tottenham won’t lose
