Chelsea (LDWDL) and Tottenham Hotspur (WWWDW) will meet on Saturday, February 22nd for an English Premier League match at Stamford Bridge. The match will be played at 7:30 AM EST.
In Chelsea’s last match, they lost to Manchester United 2-0 at home. Chelsea had 17 shots compared to Man U’s 9, however only one of Chelsea’s shots made it on target. Chelsea had 61% of possession in the match, along with 11 fouls and 4 yellow cards. Chelsea has certainly struggled recently, only winning one of their last five matches outright. That win came against Hull City on January 25th in the English FA Cup.
Tottenham won its last match against Aston Villa on the road, 3-2 on February 16th. Toby Alderweirel scored an OG for Aston Villa in the 9th minute and then evened the score himself with a goal in the 27th minute. Son Heung-Min added two goals, one in added time in the first half, the other in added time in the second half to break a 2-2 tie and win the match for Tottenham. Tottenham has won four of its last five matches overall.
The last time these two teams played each other was on Dec 22nd, 2019. Chelsea was victorious in that match, 2-0. Chelsea has won the last three matches overall against Tottenham, as the Hotspur’s last win over Chelsea came almost a year ago on Jan 8th, 2019.
I like Tottenham +0.5 in this match, due to the fact that they are trending in a much better direction than Chelsea is. Tottenham has scored eight goals in its last three matches, and I see them finding the back of the net at least once in this match, which should grab a cover.
Tottenham +0.5 is the play from me.
