Paddy’s football ambassador Phil Thompson is anticipating that the apprentice Frank Lampard is going to get one over his old master Jose Mourinho. Chelsea take on Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and Thommo’s served up his best bets for the game with PPTV.
I want touchline cam for this one because Jose, if Spurs are winning, he will be all sophisticated and nice and wanting a chat. But if Spurs and getting beat, you’ll see a different Jose and that’s the way he is. So, it will be really interesting to see how the managers interact.
This is a fantastic game of football. This is a proper Premier League game. At the time of writing Spurs are 1st, Chelsea 3rd, it has got all the making of a classic.
Chelsea’s players have started ticking over and I think it’s great. They had a good 2-0 win at Newcastle last week, they’ve won the last six in all competitions, they’re unbeaten in seven in the Premier League. They’ve only conceded two in the last eight games, they’re the top scorers in the Premier League with 22.
Sunday 4.30pm: Chelsea v Tottenham
Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League
But Spurs and not far behind with 21 goals. Jose’s got them playing. They’re unbeaten in eight Premier League games. I think their one defeat was Everton at the start of the season.
You look back and they’ve only lost one in the last 14 games in all competitions. Spurs and Arsenal, that’s probably Spurs’ big derby, but this is Chelsea’s big game.
So, this means a lot and I heard Frank say that he’s not been able to get it out of his mind. He’s going to have Chelsea really wound up.
THOMMO’S TIP: I think that the way Chelsea are playing, I think they’ll take care of Spurs. I do. And I think there’ll be goals in it. I think my tip here is Chelsea to win 3-1 in this game. I think it will be a great game but I think Chelsea will take the upper hand and they will have to.
It’s important Chelsea score first in this game. I fancy Tino Werner to score. He is like lightning, he really is. And I wouldn’t say too much of the Spurs defence is quick. I’m going for a brace for Timo Werner. I fancy him to be on the scoresheet.
Thommo’s Sunday acca
I think Manchester United will turn up against The Saints and I think Chelsea will win so my acca is going to be Manchester United and Chelsea to Win.
