Weekend Soccer Preview - March 6

By dmmd98

Chelsea’s quest for the EPL crown continues with the league leaders taking on Tottenham on a weekend where many of the top teams are in FA Cup action.

All games are important to Chelsea going down to the wire but with Manchester City playing in the FA Cup this week Chelsea can go nine points up on Manchester City in the league. While Manchester City would have three games in hand it would mean they need to win all three games to overtake Chelsea on goal difference in the league. A Chelsea win applies further pressure on Manchester City in their race to play catch up.

Unlike the last time Chelsea and Tottenham played, the storyline won’t be student vs master as former Mourinho assistant Andre Villas Boas is no longer with Tottenham. Chelsea on the other hand won’t care who is coaching as they need to keep getting three points to apply pressure on all the clubs behind them. As big of a match this is for Chelsea it’s also a massive match for Tim Sherwood and his Tottenham squad. With Tottenham being six points off a Champions League place, they need these three points or any chance of Tottenham playing Champions League soccer next year will slide away.
