Stats to help you predict Tottenham vs Chelsea (Nov 6)(21:00)
Tottenham’s recent performance in the Premier League has been nothing short of impressive. Under the guidance of Australian manager Ange Postecoglou, they’ve managed to secure 26 out of 30 possible points this season. Notably, they’ve achieved victories over Liverpool and Manchester United on home turf and delivered a thrilling 2-2 draw against Arsenal in September.
Their upcoming Monday clash with Chelsea will be another significant test for the Lilywhites. Chelsea, led by Mauricio Pochettino, is in the process of improvement and aiming for a triumphant return to their former glory.
In terms of injuries and fitness concerns, Tottenham has doubts regarding the availability of left-backs Destiny Udogie and Ben Davies. Ivan Perisic, Ryan Sessegnon, and Manor Solomon are sidelined. On the Chelsea side, striker Armando Broja and winger Mykhailo Mudryk are back in action, but they’re still missing key players such as Trevoh Chalobah, Carney Chukwuemeka, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, and Christopher Nkunku.
Tottenham has shown a knack for late-game heroics this season, with 14 of their 22 goals coming in the second half of matches. Under Ange Postecoglou’s leadership, they’ve scored at least twice in nine out of their 10 league games.
On the other hand, Chelsea has a peculiar trend of being level at half-time in all four of their league defeats this season. Despite their strong performances under new boss Pochettino, the Blues have only managed to win four of their last 18 Premier League away games. In 2023-24, they’ve conceded just three first-half goals.
As the history suggests, late drama is likely to unfold in the upcoming showdown between Tottenham and Chelsea. Tottenham has been drawing at half-time in four of their last five league wins, showcasing their ability to turn things around in the second half. Chelsea, while experiencing better performances than their results indicate, is a sturdy opponent unlikely to concede easily. Nevertheless, Spurs’ attacking prowess and belief in themselves should make for an engaging contest, where a strong second-half showing could very well be their key to success.
