After losing their last two Premier League 2 matches, Spurs will be looking to return to winning ways when they make the fairly short trip to Kingsmeadow to face Chelsea, on Friday evening (the game starts at 19:00pm). Chelsea, who are currently in the Premier League 2 Division One relegation zone (in 13th place), have lost their last three league matches. This fixture has seen some great games over the years, at this level. Chelsea won 3-2 against Spurs in their home fixture in the league last season, despite Spurs going 2-0 up in the first half, in what was a very lively game of football. Midfield player Harvey Vale was probably Chelsea’s best player in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, as he scored a brace. However, although Chelsea haven’t been in great form in the league this season, this will be another difficult game for Spurs. Wayne Burnett’s side are missing three of their defenders for the game against Chelsea, with Tobi Omole, Kallum Cesay and Malachi Fagan-Walcott all suspended for this game. It will also be interesting to see if Dane Scarlett and Harvey White will be involved in the game on Friday, or if they will once again be part of the first team squad, this time for their away game against Manchester City on Saturday.
I will be at Kingsmeadow on Friday evening, and my match report will be out later on that evening. I would like to wish the Spurs team all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: Oluwayemi, Lusala, Muir, Paskotši, Lavinier, Matthew Craig, Santiago, Mundle, Robson, Bennett, Devine (c).
Subs from: Lo-Tutala, Dorrington, Kyerematen, Donley, Williams.
Injured/unavailable: Tobi Omole (suspended), Kallum Cesay (suspended), Malachi Fagan-Walcott (suspended).
Previous meeting: 2-2.
My score prediction: 2-2.
My one to watch: Harvey Vale. The second year scholar scored a brace in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, and I thought that he had a very good game. The midfield player looks very skilful on the ball, and he has scored five Premier League 2 goals so far this season, and has also provided two assists from 14 appearances.
