Our match prediction:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with WBA, Tottenham have no other choice but to go all-out attack in Monday’s derby against fellow capital club Chelsea. The Spurs face a must-win situation in the London derby as they are seven points behind league leaders Leicester City ahead of Matchday 36, but beating the Blues at Stamford Bridge is easier said than done. Tottenham missed a number of clear-cut chances to score in the 1-1 draw with the Baggies and, as things stand now, they are unlikely to win the Premier League trophy. Chelsea are not having a season to remember, but they certainly want to give fans some cheer in the season finale. There will be fireworks when the two local rivals take on each other in the English capital and, given that the Spurs recorded their last win at Stamford Bridge back in 1990, we predict that the two sides will share the spoils in Monday’s football match.
Highligted Player (Hazard):
After impressing during his six-year spell with Lille (2007-2012), Eden Hazard signed for Chelsea in June, 2012. The Belgian midfielder helped the Blues win the Premier League trophy in the 2014/2015 campaign and it has to be noted that he was named the Premier League Player of the Year back then. Eden Hazard made it to the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals with Belgium, but Argentina proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils in the last eight of the showpiece tournament in Brazil. Hazard scored one goal for Belgium at the Euro 2016 finals, while providing four assists for his teammates and no doubt he was the key player for Marc Wilmots’ team at the tournament in France. Eden was born on 7 January, 1991 in La Louviere, Belgium and it is well known that his brother Thorgan Hazard is a professional football player as well. Eden Hazard is married to Natacha Van Honacker, who gave birth to their three children.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham Hotspur):
Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings. Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title. Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1). The likes of David Ginola, Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Gary Lineker, Luka Modric, Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale are star players that used to play for the White Hart Lane outfit in the past. The colour of Tottenham Hotspur’s home kit is white.
