Tottenham v Chelsea Betting Preview, Odds & Tips

  • Date: 24/11/18

Just a point separates Tottenham and Chelsea when the two sides meet on Saturday.

Chelsea have the upper hand in the league in third place, one above Spurs, but have had a slightly worse run of form than their opponents ahead of this game.

Tottenham have won four out of four prior to facing Chelsea. Their last defeat came to current champions and league leaders Manchester City, while Chelsea drew last time out against Everton following three victories themselves but still remain above Spurs thanks to a standout record this season.

Chelsea are the only side to remain unbeaten so far this season.

With form swinging from side to side so far this season between this pair, its easy to see why. Both sides of the city, in this London Derby, boast formidable attacks. 16/17 golden boot winner, Harry Kane, is joint third top scorer so far this season with 6 goals, beaten however by Chelsea’s Eden Hazard with 7 so far.

Team News

Tottenham: Defensive quartet Jan Vertongen, Davinson Sanchez, Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier are all sidelined with injury alongside midfielder Moussa Dembele and forward Theo Janssen.

Chelsea: Mateo Kovacic is doubtful through injury. Ethan Ampadu is confirmed unavailable with an injury.

Potential Tottenham Starting XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderwiereld, Davies, Sissoko, Dier, Lucas, Dele, Eriksen, Kane

Potential Chelsea Starting XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Willian, Giroud, Hazard

Head To Head

  • These two sides have met on 142 occasions.
  • Chelsea lead the way in wins with 61 to Spurs’ 46.

Key Stats & Facts

  • Tottenham have won their last four matches.
  • Chelsea are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season.

Betting Odds

  • Tottenham 37/20
  • Draw 5/2
  • Chelsea 13/8

The Verdict

Tottenham’s defensive injuries mean they have arguably a full back line of second string players. In such a tough to call game, this is one of the clearest tells of how this game should go. Therefore, I’m fancying Chelsea to continue their unbeaten run and win this one.

Eden Hazard is arguably the best player in the premier league right now, whether it’s the system or natural talent. He could well find a way here.

Recommended Bets

  • Chelsea to win 13/8 (Betfred)
  • Hazard to score anytime 9/5 (BlackType)
