This is probably the most important game for the Premier League’s Matchweek 13. Chelsea will be travelling to Wembley to crash with the in-form Tottenham. This is a fixture pitying number three against number four who are just one point apart. At number 4, Tottenham is looking at the opportunity to overtake Chelsea and be top three in the table standings. On the other hand, Chelsea is not ready to concede their third position, they want to be the frontrunners of this season’s EPL.
Therefore a loss for them is something that is unacceptable at this moment. Likewise, a loss for Tottenham and a win for the fifth-placed Arsenal will be through Tottenham to number 5 on goal difference. That can be a disappointing experience for Tottenham, who do not want to miss a chance in next season’s Champions League. Therefore, both teams are going to work extra hard to register a win, if worse, a draw.
