Tottenham vs Chelsea Prediction and Analysis
The Sunday program of the Premier League offers us only one match.
But what a match!
This is the classic London derby between Tottenham and Chelsea.
Blues manager Graham Potter looks set to climb the scaffold after a run of poor results.
Which cost a collapse in the Premier League standings and relegation from the FA Cup.
As well as losing to Borussia Dortmund in the first 1/8-final match of the Champions League.
With that being the case, Tottenham fans would love their team to deliver a knockout blow to Graham Potter.
Although Spurs supporters haven't had much to cheer about in recent editions of this fierce rivalry.
After Spurs recorded 0-4-9 in the last 13 matches against Chelsea .
But today's match is a great chance to rectify that.
As Antonio Conte's men have recorded 3 clean sheets in their previous 4 league matches.
Including against the champions Man City.
Meanwhile, Chelsea is in a serious crisis – only 2 wins in the last 15 games (2-4-9).

Tottenham are defending their place in the Top 4
Tottenham have increased their chances of finishing in the top four in the Premier League.
After coming through another capital derby last weekend when they beat West Ham 2-0 here.
Despite the absence of manager Antonio Conte, Spurs have enjoyed relatively smooth success.
Thanks to second-half goals from Emerson Royal and Son Hyun-min.
There is contentment at Tottenham
Full-back Ben Davies hailed the influence of Conte and assistant Christian Stellini for keeping things going:
"It's not easy when you don't have a manager here. But we really understood that when Christian spoke, it was also the manager's voice.
So we worked hard, we gave it our all and we are very happy with the result.''
Tottenham broke a streak of 2 losses
Success against West Ham was a spirited response to defeats away to Leicester and AC Milan.
And it gave Tottenham a third clean sheet in four league games.
Manchester City were also beaten before the Hammers at this impressive stadium.
Where the Spurs are yet to draw in England's top flight this season (8-0-4).
The Chelsea manager is under fire
Reports suggest Graham Potter has the backing of Chelsea's new owners.
But surely their patience will not be limitless.
Because they spent a fortune in the last two transfer windows.
And so the Blues were expected to start laying the foundations for future victories in the title race.
Chelsea are digging the bottom
However, just two wins in 14 Premier League games have left Chelsea in mid-table.
Plus, they have work to do in the Champions League. After losing 0-1 to Borussia Dortmund.
The home game against bottom club Southampton last Saturday was seen as a golden opportunity to boost morale.
But instead, Chelsea fell to a new low.
James Ward-Prowse scored the only goal with a wonderful free-kick for the Saints.
Chelsea fans are furious
The Blues walked off the field last weekend amidst anger and a chorus of boos.
As some voices even called for the manager to leave.
"When the results aren't good, that's the world we're in," Potter said.
"I'm not stupid and I'm not naive.
My job is to go on, help the team, try to support them through a difficult period - and take the criticism.''
Chelsea have too much talent. And at some point this will help to get out of the crisis.
But that seems difficult to achieve in their current mood.
