Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Tottenham Hotspur will host the 14th round in the Premier League against London city rival Chelsea on White Hart Lane. After a difficult start in the Premier League Tottenham Hotspur is progressing and is unbeaten in their last 5 games which resulted in a 5th place with 24 points (only 4 less than leader Leicester City). Chelsea on the other hand is still recovering from their disastrous start, is still heavily criticized and is placed 15th. In the last 5 confrontations between the London teams Chelsea managed to win 3 times meanwhile Tottenham Hotspur managed to beat Chelsea only once. We predict Totteham Hotspur to beat Chelsea 2-1. The team from North London is clearly in a better form. With the home advantage the Tottenham players will be highly motivated. Manager Mauricio Pochettino is showing to be the right manager for his team. Tottenham will continue their form and might even hope to get involved into the title race.
Highlighted Player (Christian Eriksen):
Christian Dannemann Eriksen born on 14th of February 1992 is a Danish football who plays as a midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen played in the youth of Odense BK and Ajax Amsterdam where he got picked up by Tottenham Hotspur after 3 seasons. On 29th of August Eriksen got transferred for 13 million euro and is one of the most expensive Danish football players of all time. Christian Eriksen made his debut in March 2010 for the Danish national team and was the youngest player during the World Cup in 2010. So far Eriksen played for over 200 club games for Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen is known for his great passing skills and game overview. In his career Eriksen managed to become national champion with Ajax 3 times and won several individual prices for being one of the most talented player of the moment.
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.
