Chelsea vs Tottenham prediction comes before the 27th Premier League round matchup. This game will be played on Saturday, February 22, at Stamford Bridge in London, England. In this match preview, we bring you betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two London teams.
Chelsea vs Tottenham Betting Tips
Chelsea have been in a pretty poor form lately, while Tottenham have been playing brilliantly in the Premier League. The result is that ahead of their clash, the point difference is only 1 point in the favor of Chelsea. What this means is that win a win on Saturday, the Spurs can overtake the 4th spot. For Chelsea, not losing this game is a must as they could drop to even to 7th place.
Apart from the table position, this game is giving a lot of motivation to each side for another reason – Chelsea and Tottenham are huge rivals. Both teams are based in London and such, they have a long tradition of rivalry. Furthermore, the current Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho used to be in charge of Chelsea. It was at the time when the current Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was playing for the Blues.
In the last three meetings between these two, Chelsea was the winning team each time. That’s another reason why Tottenham will do all they can to win this match. The trouble is that the Spurs are not that great when playing on the road. They are actually the 11-the best away team in the Premier League. Chelsea, on the other hand, are very good on the road, but at Stamford Bridge, the Blues aren’t too impressive, at least not this season. At the moment, Chelsea is the 12th-best home side in the league.
The biggest problem with Chelsea is that they have been very poor at the back. Lampard has left out their number 1 goalie Kepa and gave the role to veteran Caballero, who’s not considered to be a top-class player. The good news for Chelsea is that Tottenham are practical without a proper striker due to injuries.
Both teams are having problems with injuries. Tottenham’s troubles seem much worse, but they seem to be handling it well. They’re without Kane, Son, and Sissoko. Chelsea are definitely without Kante, while Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, and Abraham are not yet 100% fit.
For all these reasons, Chelsea vs Tottenham is bound to be a close match, in which a draw seems like the most plausible outcome.

Chelsea Form and Latest News
This team has won only 2 points in the previous 4 Premier League rounds, which is definitely a sign that there’s something wrong going on in the team. They look leaky at the back, while their attack has lost its sharpness. Still, there’s no doubt Chelsea has plenty of talent in the squad, perhaps enough to get at least a point on Saturday.
Tottenham Form and Latest News
Even with such big problems with injuries, the Spurs have been doing pretty good. They did lose to RB Leipzig earlier this week in the Champions League, in a match in which they struggled to find the net. The same shouldn’t be the case this time as Chelsea have been very poor at the back lately. Tottenham players should be able to find the net at least once.
