Spurs v Chelsea preview

After a fantastic win on Wednesday against Arsenal, this afternoon Chelsea are the visitors to White Hart Lane.

Currently we’re 5th in the Premier League, two points behind Manchester City, with a game in hand, who at the moment of writing, are playing at home against rivals Manchester United. Hopefully, United will pull off a win, as we need City to drop points.

Chelsea being the top of the league will be tough opponents, as we’ve seen in the past, however, we know we can beat them.

Sadly there’ll be no Niko Kranjcar, who is out for the rest of the season with an ankle ligament injury. Vedran Corluka and Jermain Jenas are still out. Wilson Palacios is still suspended, but thankfully this will be his last game.

There’s question marks whether Ledley King will play due to his long standing injury problems, Harry Redknapp says the defender is a ‘possibilty’ to play, let’s hope so, as he was just sublime against Arsenal.

Aaron Lennon won’t play but it’s wonderful to hear he’s back in full training. He’d give the team such a boost if he was available for the rest of the games.

I’m guessing Younes Kaboul will continue at right-back due to Corluka’s injury. I have to admit, he was pretty solid against Arsenal, although for some unknown reason they didn’t really try to test him.

I doubt there’ll be too many changes all in all, afterall, you don’t change a winning team. I do wonder what will happen upfront, as Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko didn’t really combine very well. So perhaps Peter Crouch will come in or Eidur Gudjohnsen will face his former club?

For sure it’ll be another big test for us, but like I said prior to the Arsenal game, we’ve got good form at home, so let’s hope we can pull off another exciting victory!
