Tottenham v Chelsea Preview

Jose Mourinho’s under pressure Tottenham side entertain fellow Londoners Chelsea in a huge Premier League clash this Thursday night. Spurs come into the match off the back of successive defeats, and their Champions League hopes are now hanging by a thread. Having been considered title challengers until relatively recently, Mourinho and co are in the midst of a real slump. Bookmakers and jokaroom online casino Australia make the away side strong favourites to come away with all three points. That being said, I would expect Jose Mourinho to be pulling out all the stops for a positive result against his former club.

Having very recently replaced Frank Lampard with Thomas Tuchel in the management hot seat, Chelsea have given their season a much needed reset and arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium off the back of two solid results under the guidance of their new coach. Owner Roman Abramovich has a history of not messing around when it comes to a change of manager at Stamford Bridge, as Jose Mourinho knows all too well. Former PSG boss Tuchel was installed at the helm on January 26th, the day after Frank Lampard was relieved of his duties. Thus far, Thomas Tuchel has overseen a 0-0 draw with Wolves, and more recently, a 2-0 victory over Burnley.

This should be a very entertaining encounter, although some fans will no doubt be heading to online pokies nz if the game isn’t going their way! A real battle between two of the biggest managers in world football, as Jose Mourinho and Thomas Tuchel go head to head. The big negative for Tottenham is obviously the fact that Harry Kane misses the game through injury. Spurs appeared particularly toothless at Brighton this past Sunday, and will need to make significant improvements up front if they are to break down a stubborn Chelsea defence. I do feel like Chelsea come into this match in a much better place than Spurs and a victory for the Blues will seem them move above their opponents in the Premier League table. That being said, Jose Mourinho will be desperate to get the upper hand over his former club, as well as halt Tottenham’s run of defeats. A 0-0 bore draw would really not surprise me…
