* The ball kicks off at 5:30 p.m. London time today (0:30 a.m. tomorrow March 9, Hanoi)

The home team at Stamford Bridge is the only team in the top 4 competing in round 29 this weekend, because all three remaining names are stuck in the FA Cup quarter-finals – Man City and Arsenal are playing, and Liverpool is sitting and playing for their opponents.

Hazard’s Chelsea (left) will accelerate if they win against Tottenham today.

Of course, Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City will have the opportunity to earn points in the replay matches.

Round 29

Saturday, March 8

(London time; + 7 = Hanoi time)

12:45 West Brom – Man Utd

3pm

Cardiff – Fulham

Crystal Palace – Southampton

Norwich – Stoke

17:30 Chelsea – Tottenham

* Man City, Arsenal, Everton have not played the round 28 matches yet because they are busy attending the FA Cup quarterfinals.

* Liverpool has not played yet because their opponent this round – Sunderland – is also in the eight-team round of the Cup

This possibility, if realized, would still be a significant morale boost for Mourinho and his team, helping them get closer to their championship goal, while also putting tremendous pressure on their direct competitors.

For Tottenham, today’s London derby opens a stage that promises to determine the outcome of their success rather than their failure this entire season.

If they get a positive result at Stamford Bridge, Tottenham will have more confidence and excitement needed to raise hope in the next three difficult matches.

Tottenham are currently fifth, six points behind Arsenal and Liverpool – two teams who currently have the same 28 games as them.

However, earning points, especially victories, at Stamford Bridge is not easy for Tottenham.

Adebayor has contributed decisively, scoring or assisting, to 11 goals in 12 Premier League matches this season, since coach Tim Sherwood (right) took charge.

In the Premier League era (since 1992), Tottenham has never won at Chelsea.

At home, Chelsea is also the only undefeated Premier League team and has earned the most points (38 points) since the beginning of the season.

Tottenham is currently the best away team in the Premier League this season with 29 points earned.
