On November 26 2016 at 17:30 in the main game of the 13th matchday of the English Premier League at the Stamford Bridge Stadium Chelsea play against Tottenham.
It seems like Antonio Conte understood what formation he should use to win the championship in the current season. The chosen 3-4-3 formation let them get positive results in the first game. They won all of the games after the loss to Arsenal. Liverpool were the only team, which managed to win at the Stamford Bridge Stadium and after that Chelsea won against Leicester, Manchester United and Everton with 12:0 goal difference. As a result, the Blues gained 28 points and are now on the first place in the standings of the English Premier League with 1 point above their closest rivals Liverpool.
Even though Tottenham are still the only team, which hasn’t lost a single game, they still had a bad series of games without victories, which was 7 games long. As a result, their 24 points gained let Tottenham take the fifth place in the standings with 18:8 goal difference. We must also admit that Tottenham drew in 4 games of the 6 away games played this season.
In the latest five games played between these teams Chelsea won twice, Tottenham won once and the teams drew twice. Last time they met at the Stamford Bridge in May this year and they drew 2:2. We must also admit that Tottenham were the first to score their two goals and couldn’t keep that advantage. Even though Chelsea easily outplay their competitors in the latest games, it still seems to us that they may have some problems with the Spurs. We think that both teams will manage to win.
Prediction for the match: both teams to score.
