Fantasy Football: EPL Week 18 – Tottenham vs Chelsea Preview


When Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea will be played this week, all eyes will be on Jose Mourinho. The Tottenham manager has made a good impression on Spurs, but his association with Chelsea makes this a great derby. This match #18 of the English Premier League will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur season.

Spurs are fifth in the standings with 26 points, while Chelsea are fourth with 29 points. A win will lift Tottenham to top-four and that is incentive enough for Mourinho. With four losses in their last five matches, Chelsea badly need a win.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Tottenham are likely to have record-signing Tanguy Ndombele back in contention. However, his chances of selection are bleak. Erik Lamela, Ben Davies and Hugo Lloris are injured and are still out of contention. Make sure you remove them from your fantasy side, if selected.

Two names that spring to mind for selection are Harry Kane and Dele Alli. The two England internationals are in great form this season. Kane has an excellent derby record and that could be another reason in his favour.

Chelsea Preview

Chelsea are in the midst of a very poor form. They have lost four of their last five Premier League matches. Also, they have lost their last two in a row. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is still a non-starter, but Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori are available.

Frank Lampard has done really well with the Chelsea side this season. However, the inconsistencies are glaring and threaten to pull them down. The energetic presence of Willian, and Mason Mount is refreshing.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Son Heung-min has 12 goals in his last nine competitive home matches for Tottenham, scoring seven and assisting five. Having him in your fantasy side can be a great asset.

Dele Alli has scored five goals in his last four Premier League matches against Chelsea. He is in excellent recent form also, coming into this fixture.

Tammy Abraham has been in excellent form away from home for Chelsea. He has seven goals and two assists in eight Premier League trips.
