On January 23, the match of the 23rd round of the English Premier League will take place, in which Chelsea will play Tottenham at home. The forecast for this match is given by journalist and football scout Artur Petrosyan.
The ending of the last match "Leicester– - "Tottenham" (2:3) confused all the cards. It seemed that in the upcoming match at Stamford Bridge, the stake was obvious - Chelsea's failure to win with a smaller total. But Spurs had a freaky ending to the match in Leicester, snatching victory. Although even without her, Antonio Conte's team showed an extremely powerful game – at the end of the match, its xG score was 4.9, which became the largest for Tottenham in more than 5 years.
Such victories can change things. Even the loss of Son now does not seem so critical for the Spurs, whose Bergwein has gained optimal form. It is obvious that Conte is making solid progress at the helm of Tottenham.
As for Chelsea, it seems that Thomas Tuchel's team has not completely overcome its crisis after all. In the last round, the Blues frankly looked pale away from Brighton, leaving too many questions about their game in all parts of the field. It is also alarming that in the last 12 rounds Chelsea have managed to keep their gates intact only twice.
Artur Petrosyan does not agree with the bookmakers, who consider the hosts a big favorite of the match. The expert is almost sure of Tottenham's goal, although at the same time we are waiting for a mandatory goal from Chelsea. Petrosyan also bets on the guests with a plus handicap, believing that Spurs should not lose after a bright comeback in the last round.
