Former footballer Jamie O'Hara predicts Tottenham will upset Chelsea in tonight's titanic struggle
As Chelsea and Tottenham face off tonight, Stamford Bridge Stadium will be the center of attention. In the Premier League 2022–23’s first round, both teams produced favorable results. Spurs thrashed Southampton with a score of 4-1, while the Blues defeated Everton by a score of 1-0 in the first game.
Both of the two big boys have strong new additions to the squad. Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, or Djed Spence all appear to play for Tottenham. With the additions of Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Marc Cucurella, Chelsea is still just as competitive.
The head-to-head record between Chelsea and its major competitor in the same city is far superior. The Blues won all four of their meetings with each other in the Premier League and League Cup last season. Antonio Conte was the captain of three of them. At Stamford Bridge, Spurs failed to score a single goal against the home squad.
Jamie O’Hara, a former Tottenham player, believes that things have changed and that it is now possible to reverse the trend and once more dominate London.
‘The time is right to take the field against Chelsea. I believe we will be able to eliminate you.’
“It appears like Tottenham are a bit ahead of us at the starting point, but that doesn’t mean you win the race,” coach Thomas Tuchel said of Tottenham’s superior start.
Chelsea’s “mega bomb” of 95 million euros, which fell to Arsenal, bid the home crowd farewell.
Centre-back Following the 2-4 loss to Arsenal, Wesley Fofana bid goodbye to the supporters of Leicester City. The French footballer has frequently been mentioned in connection with Chelsea. The Foxes reportedly turned down two offers from the Blues, according to the murky press.
Leicester has agreed to start the sale of Fofana, though. The King Power Stadium team agreed to oust Fofana for a sum of 95 million euros, according to an update from writer Santi Aouna. Chelsea and Fofana had reportedly reached a personal arrangement, according to the Metro newspaper.
Before moving up from the AS Saint-Etienne club’s youth ranks and joining Leicester in the summer of 2020, Fofana matured. The French morning star swiftly integrated after arriving in the hazy football field and steadily established his position before the King Power Stadium team.
52 of Fofana’s shoes have been worn on the field for Leicester City in all competitions, significantly aiding Leicester’s quest to capture the FA Cup in the 2020–21 campaign.
Fofana will join Marc Cucurella and Kalidou Koulibaly as the Blues’ third defensive standout this summer if he moves to Stamford Bridge.
The favorable factors that can make Fofana the ideal component of Chelsea’s defense scheme include his ideal body type and previous expertise in the misty nation. An eagerly anticipated addition to the West London group.
