The Chelsea versus Gareth Bale (AKA Tottenham Hotspur) game is being touted as the key in the battle for a top-four finish.
The one-man-team show that is Tottenham Hotspur Football Club have endured a fine season, with their main man bagging 19 goals so far in this campaign, including 2 in his last two games against Manchester City and Wigan Athletic.
Spurs form is all over the place at the moment, with an emphatic 3-1 win over Manchester City sandwiched between a 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic, and consecutive 2-2 draws with Everton in the Premiership and Swiss side Basle twice in the Europa League culminating in their demise on penalties.
The Blues have only dropped the one Premier League point this month thanks to a goal in ADDED added time, in the controversial clash with Liverpool 9 days ago, and are looking quite comfortable on the pitch of late. We look like a team to be feared again, and will most definitely win the game should we null the threat of newly crowned PFA player and PFA young player of the year winner Gareth Bale.
If Chelsea could manage a win at newly crowned Premier League Champions Manchester United on Sunday, then they will have all but cemented their place in the top four. If Chelsea were to win 3 of their remaining four fixtures they would finish either second or third in the league, but that is no easy task considering those four fixtures also include a difficult trip to Villa Park and a home clash with sixth placed Everton.
I am confident we can beat Tottenham regardless of Gareth’s form. I would not be surprised to see us win all four remaining fixtures starting with a win over rivals Manchester United on Sunday. They have no urgency for points, and I believe we will battle our way to a win. Come on you Blues!
