Chelsea v Tottenham Prediction: Premier League Match on 23.01.2022

Lovers of the English Premier League have a truly super Sunday ahead with four matches on the schedule this weekend. The action begins at 14:00 when Arsenal return from their EFL Cup semi-final match with Liverpool in London to host Burnley. We focus on the main event of the day, the bill-topper involving Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge. You can watch this hotly anticipated London derby from 16:30 GMT live on television with spectators looking forward to a thrilling 90 minutes.

Will the Blues use their home advantage to down Spurs and get their slim title hopes back on track or can Spurs win and strengthen their bid for a top four finish. Both sides enter the week with ambitions of finishing in the top four, securing UEFA Champions League football for next season. The locals are higher in the table but are stuck on a miserable winless run stretching back four games while Spurs travel across the city with the confidence that comes from a recent unbeaten run.

Sunday’s game will be the fourth meeting of Chelsea and Tottenham this season following games in the Premier League and EFL Cup. The Blues won 3-0 in the league and beat Spurs 3-0 on aggregate in the cup. Will that dominance continue? The majority of supporters packed into Stamford Bridge hope so but this Spurs side are improving and will believe they are good enough to claim revenge and silence the crowd.

Chelsea winless in four

Chelsea sat in pole position of the Premier League for much of the first half of the season but a drop in standards saw them lose ground to champions and current leaders Manchester City. The Blues have failed to win any of their last four games, taking just three of the last dozen points available to them. That barren spell consists of three draws and a defeat. They are now behind Manchester City and Liverpool with their already slim title chances now hanging in the balance. The Blues aren’t out of the title race just yet but a famous league win is looking increasingly unlikely with the passing of each match. The fact that Man City remain consistent hasn’t helped Chelsea’s chances any.

The home team were last seen in action on Tuesday evening when dropping two points at the Falmer Stadium. The Blues were strong favourites to beat Brighton in that game but had to settle for a bitterly disappointing 1-1 finish. An opening goal from Ziyech scored on 28 minutes gave Chelsea the lead but it was a fragile one and their inability to find a second eventually caught up with them. Webster knocked in an equaliser on the hour mark to grab a vital share of the spoils for the Seagulls while putting another dent in Chelsea’s title hopes.

The home team have played three league games already this month with their form in that period showing a 2-2 home draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge before losing 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium. A goal from De Bruyne on 70 minutes helped move the Cityzens a step closer to retaining the league trophy. Chelsea fans will arrive at Stamford Bridge demanding a better performance from their team and the pressure is now on the players to respond.

Spurs unbeaten in five

Tottenham may be the away team for this match and standing three places lower in the league table but the visitors boast the better form of the two teams involved. They journey across the city having claimed 11 of the last 15 points up for grabs. It has been a real improvement from a side that has blown hot and cold this season. Spurs have always been capable of beating any opponent at this level and they got the better of Manchester City on matchday one but a lack of consistency has cost them. Fans hope the players have finally turned the corner.

Spurs have won two of their last three games, drawing the spare. That run finished with a 1-0 win achieved in another London derby when taking three points from Watford on New Year’s Day. The scorer of the winning goal in that match was Sanchez but it came late in the contest with 96 minutes on the clock. It was a smash and grab on the points but nothing less than Spurs deserved for their efforts that day. They were the better team and had passed up several good chances to get ahead earlier in the contest. It wasn’t ideal but, in the mind of fans, it was a case of better late than never.

Since that win over the Hornets, Spurs have lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the EFL Cup, eased past Morecambe 3-1 in the FA Cup then lost 1-0 at home to Chelsea in the EFL Cup second leg. The team then had a weekend off when their North London Derby with Arsenal at the Emirates was postponed. As a result of that game being pushed back, Tottenham should be fresh and ready to go for this game. They know exactly what is expected of them.

Chelsea v Tottenham prediction

Chelsea will be cheered on by the home crowd and despite their recent poor league form, they do take heart from those back to back wins over Tottenham in the EFL Cup. That will ensure the locals head into this match with confidence to spare and the pressure on them to make an overdue return to winning ways will be the driving force. Chelsea have shown already this month they are good enough to beat Spurs.

The away team were left reeling after being knocked out of the EFL Cup, losing home and away to Chelsea. Being dumped out of the cup was bad enough for the players and fans but it was the manner of the defeat that sticks in the throat. Spurs know much better is needed if they are to continue their recent unbeaten run.
