Analysis and forecast for the match of the 2nd round of the championship of England Chelsea – Tottenham (14.08.22)

The English Championship is rapidly gaining momentum, already in the 2nd round the calendar has prepared a hot London derby for the fans. Chelsea and Tottenham, of course, are not in the best shape at the start of the season. However, both teams won their matches in the 1st round and now they want to build on their success in a head-to-head battle, which will be held at Stamford Bridge.

For Chelsea, the start of the season is expected to be difficult. Even during the pre-season, Thomas Tuchel said that early opportunities should not be overestimated. In the 1st round, the Blues were barely able to beat Frank Lampard’s Everton, who offered a viscous style of play with a defensive scheme. You can’t blame the Chelsea legend for this, because the resources of his team are minimal. However, Tuchel doesn’t have much more options now.

If the team won only thanks to the only goal from the penalty spot from Jorginho, and the ubiquitous N’Golo Kante became the best player of the match again, then there are enough problems. It is not surprising, because the updated Chelsea still have gaps in the composition. Two central defenders Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger left. A replacement for one of them has already been found in the person of Kalidou Koulibaly, and now there is an all-rounder Mark Cucurella, but another performer is needed in the center.

There are also problems with the attack, because the club got rid of not only Romelu Lukaku, whose investments did not justify themselves, but also Timo Werner, who returned to Leipzig. Everton played with a trio of Kai Havertz, Mason Mount and newcomer Raheem Sterling, who often found himself on the edge. Potentially, this bunch has good prospects, but at a distance the blues will obviously not interfere with a full-fledged forward.

Especially against such a balanced opponent as Antonio Conte’s Tottenham. Chelsea is called the favorite of this meeting, which is not surprising – the Spurs have not defeated their principal rival in regular time for more than three years. During this period, 11 matches were played in all tournaments, in which the “aristocrats” won eight victories. However, at such an early stage of the season, such a match has not yet been.

Now Conte has a great chance to break his team’s nasty streak with Chelsea, because the Italian specialist, unlike his opponent, has received almost all the players he needs. Here is the fast versatile Richarlison, who can play with or instead of Harry Kane, and full-back Jed Spence, who covers the entire flank, and even a couple of veterans – Ivan Perisic and Clement Lenglet.

Tottenham have obviously become stronger and are going to re-establish themselves in the Champions League zone. In the 1st round, the Spurs confidently dealt with Southampton (4:1) and even without the participation of newcomers – Ryan Secegnon scored a double and Dejan Kuluszewski scored two points. Of course, the level of the opponent does not allow us to overestimate this defeat, but Tottenham really played in many respects with a margin.

Under Conte, Tottenham are consistently scoring away points and achieving good results against top opponents. This year in the Premier League, the club has played 12 away matches in which the team has not lost nine times with seven victories. Including in matches with the main favorites for the championship title Manchester City and Liverpool managed to score four points out of six.

Decent stats that don’t work in games against Chelsea yet. It is important to note that Tottenham will have a special motivation in this match, because they have not even scored a goal in a derby for a very long time – Spurs have not scored six official matches in a row in this confrontation. However, Antonio Conte himself recently noted that last season he had limited resources, but still managed to jump into the top four. Now the goals are clearly higher.

For Chelsea, only the impeccable statistics of head-to-head games with Tottenham speak for now, but too much has happened at the club in recent months. The hosts have not yet completed the work on completing the composition, because of this there are difficulties at the start. They did not impress at all in friendly matches, beating only Udinese twice, but receiving four goals from Arsenal (0:4) and in the first round they almost lost points with Everton.

The opponent has no such problems. Tottenham started with a powerful victory over Southampton, but the result is not more important, but the quality of the game. Players are getting used to the familiar system of the Italian, and now he has even more options for rotation. It is too risky to bet on the guests to win in such a game, but the Spurs have every chance to get points. You can bet on the Tottenham won’t lose option with odds of 1.69.

Forecast and bet on the match of the 2nd round of the championship of England “Chelsea” – “Tottenham” August 14, 2022

Last season, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur were actively fighting for a place in the Champions League and completed the tasks, sitting on the third and fourth line in the table, respectively. In the new season, the teams also debuted with victories, and the Spurs were at the top after a crushing victory over Southampton. Such an outcome can hardly be surprising, because Tottenham are one of those clubs in the Premier League who can really make progress.

Antonio Conte has done a good job with this team for several months, but now the manager has had a full pre-season and almost all the transfer goals have been achieved. Thomas Tuchel still has problems with this, as the nondescript game with Everton showed. The German coach has already noted that the start of the season will be difficult. The current Tottenham are able to take advantage of the situation and even get a victory at Stamford Bridge for the first time in four years.
