Chelsea vs Tottenham Prediction and Betting Preview 22 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Chelsea vs Tottenham PredictionThe race for top-four in the Premier League has never been tougher with no less than seven teams in the running for the final Champions League place after about 26 games. Affairs are getting frantic in England and you get the feeling that the top-four race will go right down to the wire.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 27
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London)
Chelsea have been pretty lackluster in recent weeks, failing to churn out positive results on a regular basis. Last time out against arch-rivals Manchester United, the Blues were dragged to the cleaners.

The Red Devils exerted their dominance over Frank Lampard’s side throughout the game, grabbing two unanswered goals in the process. Indeed, they looked good value for the very comfortable win at Stamford Bridge.

With fellow top-four hopefuls Tottenham coming around town on Saturday afternoon, expect a ballsy affair in West London, with both sides going all out for the win. It goes without saying that goals are a surety in this fixture.

Chelsea vs Tottenham Team News

When Chelsea picked up 10 points from five Premier League fixtures either side of the turn of the year, it appeared likely that Frank Lampard and his side would continue on an upward trajectory during the second half of the campaign.

However, after four matches without success, the Blues find themselves at risk of losing fourth spot, while there is only a five-point gap between the West Londoners and ninth-placed Everton.

The gradually decreasing margin for error means that the pressure is now on Lampard, who will also have one eye on the upcoming Champions League double-header with Bayern Munich.

As he has already acknowledged, Lampard again had to point to Chelsea's failure to take their chances against Manchester United on Monday night - a game where his team were arguably on the wrong end of several refereeing and VAR decisions.

Chelsea have significant problems at the other end of the pitch, with seven goals being conceded in their last four top-flight contests, including two from set pieces.
Shipping goals from dead-ball situations hurt Lampard and his team earlier in the campaign, and there are signs that the indecisiveness which plagued them during the early months have returned.

Keeping just one clean sheet in eight league matches leaves Lampard to contemplate reverting to a back three - a strategy which proved to be successful against Spurs two months ago.

That said, the element of surprise has disappeared regarding Lampard's traits as a manager, putting the Englishman in a position where he must evolve if he wishes to have the longevity of his opposite number and former mentor.

Jose Mourinho has been left delighted with the recent performances of his team, who have collected 10 points from their most recent four matches in the Premier League.

However, Son Heung-min's broken arm has the potential to derail Spurs' efforts in their two priority competitions, especially with Harry Kane still two months away from a return.
