Tottenham drew 1-1 with Arsenal on Saturday at Wembley and it’s a result that will definitely please all Chelsea fans.
Following the draw between the two sides on Saturday, Tottenham now have 61 points from 29 games while Arsenal have 57 points from 29 games.
Chelsea have played two games less than Tottenham and Arsenal and have 53 points from 27 games. If Chelsea win our two games at hand, the Blues will have 59 points from 29 games and will climb to fourth on the table, two points above Arsenal and two points behind Tottenham in third.
Chelsea winning our two games in hand will also put pressure on third-place Tottenham, who have gone from challenging the title to watching their backs in the top four battle.
Our game against Fulham on Sunday is a must-win for Chelsea but it could be a tricky one for the Blues after Fulham sacked Claudio Ranieri this week. Teams tend to play with more determination and a new style unknown to their opponents under a new manager and get positive results.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri revealed ahead of the game against Fulham that the appointment of a new manager will change the context of tomorrow’s game as Fulham will be a more difficult side to beat.
Sarri said: “Usually when there is a change of the coach there is a reaction and so we have to fight the reaction, and also it is very difficult for us to prepare the match because we don’t know the new system and the new ideas, so it is a very difficult match.”
