The team of Mauricio Pochettino is coming to a duel with Chelsea after a more than convincing victory in the FA Cup in a modest representative of the fourth-best division – Tranmere Rovers. A class is a class. Therefore, 7:0 is unlikely to be surprising. The “spurs” were played not by the main squad, but Fernando Llorente, who signed the rival’s goal three times, was able to demonstrate his level. Tottenham is in good shape now. There are sometimes failures, as in a recent match with Wolverhampton, but in general, Londoners play consistently and effectively. In the last four victorious matches, they scored three or more goals.
Chelsea also played well last weekend in the FA Cup. He took the London club at Stamford Bridge as a representative of the Nottingham Forest Championship, and, thanks to two precise strikes by Alvaro Morata, he entered the next round of the competition.
Chelsea played well in recent away games. As part of the Premier League wards Maurizio Surry defeated “Brighton” (2:1), “Watford” (2:1) and “Crystal Palace” (1:0). In general, in the last nine official matches, they lost only to Leicester at home (0:1), scoring six wins.
