Spurs under 23’s versus Chelsea: (match preview)
My 100% record of attending this seasons under 23 games will come to an end this Saturday, when Spurs host Chelsea at Hotspur Way. Due to the North London Derby I will be unable to report on the game which doesn’t seem to be being shown on Chelsea TV. We are all aware of the talent that Chelsea’s youth team boast, though they sit beneath us in the league table (due to goal difference). Adrian Viveash’s side have some quality players which include Kylian Hazard, Ethan Ampadu and Reece James. Burnett’s side will be looking to bounce back from our feisty defeat to Villarreal B on Thursday, returning to league action with a full squad of players. Against a blues side who haven’t won on the road this campaign, it promises to be a fascinating game, the last time these sides met it ended in a highly competitive 2-2 draw. COYS
My predicted lineup: Austin, Eyoma, Tanganga, C.Maghoma, Bennetts, Skipp, Amos, Edwards, Pritchard(c), S.Shashoua, Harrison.
Doubtful: Tsaroulla, Dinzeyi, Brown.
Subs from: O’Reilly, Lyons-Foster, Tracey, Loft, Sterling.
My score prediction: 2-2.
One to watch: The blues skilful Belgian forward Charly Musonda (21).
