Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea 09/19/2021
Tottenham (3-0-1, 9 points) saw their three-game winning streak to start the 2021-22 English Premier League snapped by lower-ranked Crystal Palace. Odsonne Edouard and Wilfried Zaha provided the goals for Palace, who dominated possession and shot attempts. The Spurs’ woes escalated further when Japhet Tanganga was sent off in the second half. The loss halted the perfect start for Tottenham and was relegated to seventh place behind Brighton, Hove and Manchester City. The lack of offense has become an early problem for the Spurs, as they only scored three goals in four games. They need to get Harry Kane into the scoring groove to help Son Heung-min upfront and stand a chance to beat Chelsea, who has scored nine in four matches.
Players to Watch: Son Heung-min (2 goals), Dele Alli (1 goal), Steven Bergwijn (1 assist), Hugo Lloris (3 clean sheets)
Chelsea (3-1-0, 10 points) played brilliant soccer in the first four games this season. They were outstanding in offense with nine goals and great in defense, allowing just one goal in four matches. In their last game, the Blues blitzed Aston Villa, 3-0, to secure their third win. Chelsea dominated Aston Villa in possessions, 57%-43%, but had fewer shots. Romelu Lukaku scored two goals and Mateo Kovacic added another to help the Blues take home the victory and move to second behind Manchester United. Top-choice keeper Edouard Mendy struck his third clean sheet of the season, one game after he allowed a goal against Liverpool. The Blues are expected to bring out a balanced attack under the tutelage of Tuchel. Aside from Lukaku, Kai Havertz is expected to contribute in offense and he is likely to have a breakout game.
Players to Watch: Romelu Lukaku (3 goals), Mateo Kovacic (1 goal, 2 assists), Reece James (1 goal, 2 assists), Kai Havertz (1 goal), Marcos Alonso (1 goal).
