Opinion: 2 Teams That Can Defeat Chelsea In The English Premier League This Month

After defeating Frank Lampard's Everton by a score of 1-0 the previous weekend, Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team will be hoping for yet another victory when they face Antonio Conte's Tottenham Hotspur on the following Sunday. In the remaining English Premier League matches during the month of August, Chelsea will compete against Spurs, Leeds United, Leicester City, and Southampton.

Because they were unable to show off their skills, Tuchel's Chelsea weren't able to reveal much about themselves during their match against Everton. The two teams listed below are both in the English Premier League and have a chance of handing Chelsea their first loss in the league this month.

1. Tottenham Hotspur

The three most recent London derbies between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been dominated by Tuchel, who has outscored Spurs by a combined total of 7 goals to nil. The German head coach has not been beaten by Antonio Conte's team and has not given up a single goal.

It is possible that the outcome of Sunday's match between these two clubs in the English Premier League will be different due to the fact that the Spurs added a big number of new players during the summer transfer window. If Chelsea's performance does not improve, the team captained by Antonio Conte has a chance to inflict the Blues their first loss in the league.

The Chelsea defense has been pretty strong so far this season, but the team's lack of quality offensive alternatives could be a problem for them when they host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge this coming Saturday.

2. Leicester City

In the event that Tottenham Hotspur are unable to deliver Chelsea their first loss of the season, Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City could become Chelsea's worst nightmare. The blues might have been able to avoid defeat against Leicester City in the English Premier League during the previous campaign, but given Leicester City's performance thus far, it's possible that things will turn out differently this time around.
