Chelsea Fantasy Premier League preview: Chelsea vs Tottenham Gameweek 10 #CHETOT



If you’re smart then you took my mystical wisdom last week and chose Tammy Abraham to lead the line against Newcastle, however this week the future is more clouded. Chelsea’s trip to St James’ Park was always likely to be a one-sided affair so banking on the attacking power that the Blue’s possess was an easy choice. Spurs and Jose Mourinho will be a very different animal in Gameweek 10.

Last season we saw Frank Lampard use a 3-4-3 home and away against Tottenham and it worked brilliantly, but this year Chelsea have only used that system once and it worked. The dilemma comes though as it hasn’t been used since the match-up with Manchester United and also since Lampard seems to have found his favoured system.

Predicting the Blue’s line up and tactical set up will be half of the task when picking their players for FPL this week.

In a game where Chelsea could well find themselves dominating the ball, it might be a good shout to include one of Mason Mount or Kai Havertz in your midfield selection. Despite neither player scoring heavily so far with Mount grabbing 33 and Havertz 26 with both players starting seven games, this weekend is a chance for both players to control the game.

Chelsea have also found great balance when both players have played together alongside N’Golo Kante in a midfield three. With this being a possible starting selection against Spurs it could be worth an investment.

The pair both have the ability to find killer passes and create chances, characteristics that can be even more valuable against a low-block.

The next choice you’ll have to make is hedging your bets between Chelsea’s attack or defence going into Gameweek 10. In the past month or so it’s been all about picking up consistent points through any of the back five for Chelsea. This week though will be a tougher ask compared to Newcastle, Burnley, and Sheffield United.

Spurs possess extreme danger when coming forward with Harry Kane’s passing range, Heung-Min Son’s pace and drive mixed with Steven Bergwijn’s speed and dribbling. In essence, it would be wise to choose one of defence or attack for this game, my personal choice would be to go with the attack.

Striker’s won’t lose points if Chelsea concede and they can still bring back a good load of points, especially if Jose Mourinho sets up for a counter-attacking game, there’s a good chance that Chelsea’s forwards will see a lot of the ball and create more chances.

In specific picks it might be worth using Abraham again after his successful week out, he continues to bring home goals and assists (3G, 3A) in 5 starts, including racking up 5 bonus points over the last two outings. With Timo Werner looking more and more tired as the weeks go on it makes Abraham’s 7.2m look a steal when compared to the other strikers in the league.

Gameweek 10: Pick of the Week

In a game of tight margins it often takes a moment of magic to win a game, Hakim ‘the dream’ Ziyech could be your man for Gameweek 10. Chelsea have their own new wizard this season and even in his 3 starts this year he has bagged 28 points for managers. Up until the Newcastle game, he also was averaging a point every seven minutes.

If Spurs go into this match as they did against Manchester City then it might take a moment that only a player like Ziyech can produce to win the game. In fantasy football, it’s the small gains you can over the rest that will help, if Ziyech brings his magic wand at the weekend he could be the key to unlocking the Spurs defence.

He won’t come cheap anymore though, his price is continuing to rise and will now cost 8.3m, however, when you consider the weight of his points he is a game-changer in every sense. The stats don’t lie either, the Moroccan has got a point more than Kevin De Bruyne this year already despite playing less than half the minutes of the Belgian.
