Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspurs at home as the top four spot is up for grabs within the 90 minutes contest. The Blues will be condemned to victory as they trail Tottenham Hotspurs on the League table with 5 points.
This places the Spurs side ahead of Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League as hostilities ensue at Stamford Bridge when both sides(London rival) takes on each other on the Easter (Super) Sunday.
However, with the Blues seating 5th on the log below the Spurs side and needing a win, by all means, we evaluate the three implications if Chelsea fails Tottenham’s test at home.
Conte’s Possible Departure
The Italian has been under pressure most especially in the turn of the year as result has not really gone as planned.
This saw Chelsea draw (4) four consecutive matches in all competition as they were held to a 2-2 and 0-0 draw against Arsenal within the space of 7 days.
With Wenger’s future on the line ahead of the season due to lack of Champions League football and series of poor form (results in the Premier League), Conte needs to tighten up his belt otherwise a possible hammer may be laid on him if the Blues (Champions in 2012) fails to qualify for the Champions League with the aid of this match.
Eden Hazard’s Exit
This might happen at the end of the season as the player will be looking for the fresh challenge ahead of next season.
If Chelsea fails to win the Tottenham match and possibly fail to qualify for Europe Elite competition, they will not be able to keep their (Number 10) star players.
With Real Madrid and other club monitoring his dealings at Chelsea, any faltering of any kind from London side Chelsea will aid Hazard’s suitor as the season gradually draws to a close.
No Champions League Glory
The Blues will miss out on the Champions League if they fail to close the 5 points gap that separates then against Tottenham.
If Chelsea losses at home, Tottenham will open up eight (8) gaps (advantage) over the Blues and this will be unassailable owing to Chelsea’s poor form in the season.
Champions League Football is ultimate for Chelsea and anything apart from victory against Spurs will not be entertained from the fans most especially by Russian club owner Roman Abrahimovic.
These are the possible outcome if Chelsea fails to impress against their London rival (Spurs) on Super Sunday as both sides seek each others scalp in the course of the 90 minutes.
