PL Match Preview : Chelsea vs Tottenham

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Six successive wins has lifted Chelsea to the top of the table, though they could be third by the time this match kicks off. However, they will be confident of topping the Premier League by the close of play on Saturday having not lost a league game at home to Tottenham since 1990.

Spurs have won only one of their last nine competitive outings and were knocked out of the Champions League in midweek. They will look to exact revenge on Chelsea having seen their title hopes ended in the 2-2 draw between the pair in west London back in May.

Chelsea don’t look like conceding at present and should inflict further misery upon an out of sorts Spurs side.

PL Match Preview : Liverpool vs Sunderland

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Liverpool’s run of four straight wins came to an end at the weekend when they could only manage a draw against Southampton. That saw them drop off top spot in the Premier League, but they have a good chance of regaining first place, as league leaders Chelsea host Tottenham this weekend.

Sunderland have won back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since May and did so in convincing fashion after putting three past Hull last time out. Their second win of the season moved them off the bottom of the table and they are now just three points adrift of safety.

Liverpool fans will be expecting a win on Saturday but games between these two sides have been tight affairs in recent years. Sunderland haven’t won any of their last five against Liverpool, but they did manage two draws in that time and the three defeats were only by a single goal. A Liverpool victory by a one-goal margin could be on the cards once more.
