Chelsea

Chelsea struggled to play well last matches, because of lack of the attacking strength, however, they are likely to bring G. Higuain to the squad. The Blues started the season very well with M. Sarri as a new coach, however, they struggle with finishing scoring chances because of O. Giroud and A. Morata weak form. Chelsea likes to control the game, although they showing great passing skills, moreover, surprisingly D. Luiz is great at passing through all pitch to attackers. Chelsea this years stands at 4th position at Premier League and fighting for Europa League Title to go further for Champions League draw if they will not take one of 4 leading positions at Premier League.

 

Tottenham

Tottenham playing great and beautiful football this year, however, they are facing an absent crisis with H. Kane and Lucas Moura due to injury and H. Min Song due to the national team call up. Tottenham after a comeback took a win against Fulham at the last round of Premier League in last minutes and now at the third place of PL. They are showing confident football shooting from direct free kicks often, they are great at counter attacks, however, they struggle to stop opponents from creating chances and counter attacks.
