Our football match prediction:
There will be fireworks when Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea face each other at White Hart Lane. The Blues look unstoppable at the moment as they are eyeing their 14th consecutive win in the league. As expected, Antonio Conte’s men defeated Stoke City on Saturday, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Wednesday’s London derby against Tottenham Hotspur. The Spurs emerged triumphant in each of their previous four home games in the league and they are certainly capable of putting an end to Chelsea’s impressive winning run. Considering that the Blues are six points clear of second-placed Liverpool in the Premier League standings, the visitors would be happy with one point from Wednesday’s football match. Mauro Pochettino’s troops have yet to suffer a loss at home this season and, taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the horizon. Chelsea attacker Diego Costa scored against Stoke City, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Harry Kane):
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year. The highly rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Spurs mount a serious title challenge for the first time in club’s recent history and he made seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals. Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash. After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
