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

Spurs’ Under 18 side are in good league form of late. They have won their last three Premier League South matches, going into this Tuesdays league fixture with Chelsea, at their Cobham training centre. Spurs won 2-1 against Norwich City at the weekend, and they were without three of their regular starters, in Jaden Williams, Alfie Dorrington and Jordan Hackett, for that match. Chelsea are in sixth place in the Premier League South, after picking up 39 points from 21 matches. They are three places and 12 points above Stuart Lewis’ Spurs side, in the league. The reverse fixture earlier on in the season saw Spurs lose 7-2 at home to Chelsea, but it was a red card that was shown to Jamie Donley on that day, which really allowed Chelsea to control the game, and score so many goals. Just like in all of the previous seasons that I have watched Spurs face Chelsea, this Chelsea side are a very talented team, regardless of where they are in the league this season. And Spurs will have to be at their best to get a good result at Cobham on Tuesday. I would like to wish the Spurs side all the very best of luck for the match.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Maguire, Bryan-Waugh, Dorrington, Sayers, Hackett,   Abbott, Kyerematen, McKnight, Donley (c), Bloxham, Williams.

Subs from: Hayton, Linton, Davies, Heaps, Owen.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: N/A.

Previous meeting: Spurs 2-7.

My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.

My one to watch: Malik Mothersille. The second year scholar was impressive in the reverse fixture last year, after he came on fairly late in the game. The forward scored a well taken goal during that match, and he has scored seven league goals and provided two assists from 15 appearances for the Chelsea Under 18 side this season.
