Match
start: 17:00 (GMT+2)

During
the opening round of the new EPL the sextet of bright favorites was
paying against different middle level teams and underdogs of the EPL.
This time at the second round we will enjoy the battle of new
vice-champion Tottenham and the current winner of the tournament
Chelsea.

The
forthcoming battle of the teams of Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio
Conte will be held on the biggest British arena Wembley (90 000)
and of course it attracts attention not only in England.

Tottenham
(the head coach Mauricio Pochettino)

During
the first round, the Spurs thanks to two scored goals (Dele Alli and
Ben Davies) had won over Newcastle
in away match (0:2) and became one of the leaders of new champions’
race. The forthcoming meeting the team will meet with the following
squad (3-4-2-1):

Lloris
– Dier, Toby, Vertonghen – Walker-Peters, Wanyama, Dembélé,
Davies – Alli, Eriksen – Kane;

Injured:
Erik Lamela and Danny Rose;

Chelsea
(the head coach Antonio Conte)


It
is obvious that Chelsea is under impression of terrible judging of
Craig Pawson during the opening meeting Chelsea – Burnley which
ended with sensational defeat of the hosts of Stamford Bridge with
the score (2:3). As it was expected, the head referee of this match
wasn’t punished with long-term disqualification and is waiting for
a new appointment on one of the games of the second round.

And
what about Chelsea? Of course, in this situation the team of Antonio
Conte would like to play with the club of absolutely other level. But
the calendar plan is stable and that is why champion will play with
the Spurs and also with huge squad losses (3-4-2-1):

Courtois
– Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rüdiger – Moses, David Luiz, Kanté,
Alonso – Willian, Boga – Morata;

Injured:
Eden Hazard, Tiemoué Bakayoko;

Disqualified:
Gary Cahill and Francesc Fàbregas;

Match
prediction

The
forthcoming meeting will be played without best center forward Gary
Cahill, the best winger Eden Hazard and the main playmaker Francesc
Fàbregas. And because life is not a bed of roses Antonio Conte had
moved David Luiz to the middle line.

More
some history! Even earlier, when the situation was better than this
one, the blues had little wins on the home arena of Spurs:

20.10.2012.
Tottenham – Chelsea – 2:4 (Gallas, Defoe – Cahill, Mata 2,
Sturridge);

28.09.2013.
Tottenham – Chelsea – 1:1 (Sigurðsson – Terry);

01.01.2015.
Tottenham – Chelsea – 5:3 (Kane 2, Rose, Townsend, Chadli –
Costa, Hazard, Terry);

29.11.2015.
Tottenham – Chelsea – 0:0;

04.01.2017.
Tottenham – Chelsea – 2:0 (Alli 2);

And
now when Antonio Conte is lacking top class football players in the
center the possible winning of the vice-champion is doubtless.

Tottenham
– 2.10, draw – 3.60, Chelsea–3.75;
