Hernan Crespo is backing former club Chelsea to take the London derby bragging rights at Wembley this weekend in the latest Big Call video from online betting site BetStars.

Crespo has teamed up with BetStars, the sports brand of The Stars Group (Nasdaq: TSG; TSX: TSGI), to make the Big Call for first London derby of the Premier League season.

The former Argentina striker, who won the Premier League and three Serie A titles during an illustrious career, also predicts Antonio Contechampions will win 3-2 in a ‘very close’ match when they tackle Tottenham in the stand-out tie of the weekend.

Crespo also told BetStars how the Blues will finish above Chelsea though he’d like to see Conte sign ‘two or three’more players before the window slams shut. Crespo also said Harry Kane’s ‘belief’ makes Spurs strong and praised the England frontman as ‘more than a striker.’

Chelsea to win 3-2 – 33/1 with BetStars

Speaking on behalf of BetStars, Hernan Crespo said: “I think it will be a Chelsea victory 3-2. Mauricio Pochettino worked hard to put Tottenham on another level but they are missing something.”

Christian Eriksen first goalscorer  7/1 with BetStars

Hernan Crespo said: “I think Christian Eriksen will open the scoring with a free-kick in a very close mach.”

David Luiz to score anytime – 15/2 with BetStars

Hernan Crespo said: “David Luiz will have a lot of chances to score with free-kicks and headers.”
Chelsea to finish above Tottenham in the Premier League – 4/5 with BetStars
Hernan Crespo said: “I would say Chelsea [will finish higher than Tottenham]. It’s not only because they are my favourite team but because I think they’re better than Tottenham.”


Harry Kane’s ‘belief’ makes him ‘more than a striker’
Hernan Crespo told BetStars: I like Harry Kane a lot. I hope they win the league for him and for the team because they deserve it. His best quality is his belief, he believes in all of his actions and that it is possible to score goals. I like him because he is a forward but if he can, he comes back to play with his teammates. He wants to help out his team and he does very well. He’s not only a striker, he does so much more.

“It is difficult to talk about Harry Kane and Dele Alli separately because they play very well together and that is why Tottenham are so strong. I think those two together means that Pochettino will have a better chance at winning the league.”

Chelsea should sign two or three players
Hernan Crespo said: “Maybe they need two or three players to become better, because it’s not easy to repeat what happened last year. But at the same time I think it’s a good team.

They should sign maybe a great centre-back and another striker to play with Morata if Diego Costa leaves. Tiemoue Bakayoko is good, Hazard is good but you need another one.”

History maker Frank Lampard has ‘the intelligence’ to become a football manager
Hernan Crespo, who played alongside England midfielder Frank Lampard during Chelsea’s title winning season of 2005/6, told BetStars: “Lampard made history as a player. He was the midfielder that changed the mentality of midfielders. He scored goals like a striker.

It’s not easy to become a manager. It’s true that he has a lot of experience but at the same time you need to learn and study because it’s another vision that you’re not used to as a former player. You need to study and he has that intelligence to do that.”

Hernan Crespo dream of becoming a great manager
Hernan Crespo managed in Serie B at Modena in 2015/16 and revealed his desire to one day coach in the Premier League. He said: "Now I’m vice president of Parma but at the same time I have a dream to become a great manager.

"But I like to be involved in football and now my job is to help my former team Parma to get back to the high level that they deserve. It’s a good job but you never know, maybe in one, two or three years I can become a manager, you never know."

When asked if he would like to manage in England, Hernan confirmed: “Yes, because I like this kind of situation that there is for managers in England because it’s not only about the players or not only about the pitch. It involves the 360 degrees in the club. And I like that situation very much, I don’t try to do this in Italy because they would never do it."

Hernan Crespo has made the Big Call with online betting site BetStars. He is backing Chelsea to win 3-2 against Tottenham. #Callit at
