Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to return to the winning ways when the Blues host their London rivals in the pick of the midweek Premier League matches, at Stamford Bridge, in London, on Wednesday night (IST).
What competition it is? Premier League
Teams: Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur
Kick Off: Thursday 28 February
Match Timing: 01:30 AM (IST)
Where the game is played? Stamford Bridge (41,631)
TV Info: Premier League has the rights to stream Premier League matches in India. Also, the matches can be watched on the Hotstar app.
The wins and the defeats are all part and parcel of the game. But the way Sunday's events unfolded in the League Cup final against Manchester City would bother every personnel related with the club.
But the one guy who suffered the most was manager Maurizio Sarri. The former Napoli manager was coming under immense pressure prior to the game against Manchester City and was reported to have been given two games to show his credentials to take the club forward.
His tactics worked on the day, at least for the first 120 minutes as Chelsea forced the penalties to decide the winner.
But then the infamous incident happened. Kepa Arrizabalaga suffered an injury deep in the extra time. Sarri decided to sub him off for Willy Caballero, but he refused to come off, leaving the manager helpless.
Chelsea, of course, lost the penalty shootout and the goalkeeper had nowhere to hide. The manager downplayed the incident by labelling it as some “misunderstanding”, but it is reported that Sarri is ready to give him the chop in the next match.
For Tottenham, this match is of paramount importance as a negative result at Stamford Bridge would all but end their hopes for the Premier League title.
At the moment, they are 3rd on the table with 60 points from 27 games. If Spurs lose the match, and Liverpool and Manchester City win their respective games, the gap at the top of the table would be nine points, which at this stage is huge.
