Tottenham vs Chelsea Betting Tips
Only three points separate Tottenham and Chelsea at the moment. The advantage is in the favor of the Blues, but that might change this Sunday. With a win over their city rivals, the sparse could leapfrog them on the table.
At the same time, Tottenham could also drop a few points down if they lose this game. In fact, even if they play a draw, they could drop down a couple of places. That is because Manchester United and Sheffield United have only one point fewer than the Spurs. Right behind them are Wolves and Crystal Palace, with two and three points fewer respectively.
The good news for Tottenham is that they are in pretty good form at the moment. Actually, ever since Jose Mourinho has joined the club, they have been in a good run. In their last five Premier League rounds, this team has won four matches.
They did, however, lose to Manchester United, which worries some of their fans ahead of the Chelsea game. It seems that the Spurs aren’t too great when playing against teams from the top six. Another thing that worries them is that they seem very soft at the back. This team has allowed at least one goal in seven out of the previous eight matches in all competitions.
What’s giving them confidence ahead of the clash with the Blues is that they have been pretty awesome at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium lately, with three wins in their previous three matches. And with a total score of 12:4.
We’re not yet done talking about things going in favor of Tottenham. The thing that’s making them huge favorites in this game is that Chelsea have been pretty poor lately. The Blues have lost four out of the previous five Premier League matches.
It all started back in November when they lost to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, since when they won only two matches; one in the Premier League where they beat Aston Villa and one in the Champions League where they won against Lille. Both of those wins happened at the Stamford Bridge.
But, in away matches, Chelsea are without a win since beating the bottom-placed Premier League side, Watford on the second day of November. The good news for Chelsea, however, is that they are almost entirely injury-free.
That’s not the case with Tottenham. This team will be without several important players including their long-term absentee Hugo Lloris. They will also be without Ndombele, Lamela, and Davis.
Still, they have one ace up their sleeve, which is their manager Jose Mourinho, who is the former manager of Chelsea. He has experience with Chelsea, as well as their current manager Frank Lampard. And such, Mourinho does have a great advantage over him and his team.
