Spurs under 18’s versus Chelsea: (match preview)

Spurs’ Under 18 side welcome Chelsea to Hotspur Way on Saturday morning (the game starts at 11:00am), for their penultimate league game of the season. Matt Taylor’s side can still finish in fourth place in the league (they are currently in fourth place). Spurs beat Norwich City 5-2 in the week, having come from two goals down to win that game. Seventh place Chelsea lost 6-1 when these sides met in the league in March in Cobham, so they will be looking to make up for that result on Saturday. Spurs were excellent during that game and Chelsea couldn’t deal with them going forwards, but Chelsea were missing their top scorer in the league this season on that day, Jude Soonsup-Bell, who could play against Spurs on Saturday. This will be a very competitive game of football, but it will be interesting to see whether Spurs start with Dane Scarlett and Alfie Devine, as the Spurs Under 23 side have a game against Manchester City the day before. I would like to wish the Spurs team all the very best of luck for this London derby.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lo-Tutala (c), Muir, Dorrington, Paskotsi, Hackett, Michael Craig, Devine, Mathurin, Mundle, Santiago, Scarlett.

Subs from: Maguire, Cassanova, Matthew Craig, Davies, Donley.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 6-1.

My score prediction: Spurs 3-2.

My one to watch: Chelsea forward Jude Soonsup-Bell (17), who has scored 14 goals from 14 league appearances for Chelsea at Under 18 level this season.
