David Seaman has offered his prediction for the score in the upcoming match between Tottenham and Chelsea, which is scheduled for next Monday. Chelsea will be making the journey across London to face Spurs in a Premier League clash.
The Blues secured their place in the Carabao Cup with a victory over Blackburn Rovers during the week. However, their focus is now back on improving their performance in the league.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team currently sits in mid-table with just 12 points from 10 league games played so far. Their next challenge is to face the league leaders in an away match.
In terms of a prediction, it’s interesting to hear David Seaman’s thoughts, especially considering his association with Arsenal. Surprisingly, he has predicted a 2-1 victory for Chelsea in the away match against Spurs. He made this prediction during the Seaman Says podcast.
As for team news, the match is still a few days away, and fans are hoping there won’t be any fresh injury issues during training over the weekend. Chelsea has had a run of bad luck with injuries in recent years, so there is a sense of pessimism among the fans.
Mauricio Pochettino mentioned on Chelsea’s official YouTube channel that Armando Broja could potentially make a return to the Blues’ bench after his recent absence due to a knee injury. However, he did not confirm whether Reece James would start against Spurs. James, the club captain, played for an hour in the cup win against Blackburn, but he has missed most of the season due to injury.
Given Tottenham’s form this season, Chelsea will need to be at their best and fully sharp for the upcoming match. There is some confidence to be taken from the fact that Chelsea has produced their best performances against teams like Liverpool and Arsenal, who like to have possession and play attacking football.
