What Trueform says for Chelsea vs Tottenham
Tottenham haven’t beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for 28 years, but our Trueform ratings suggest they are playing well enough to end that hoodoo.
Both teams went into the international break on the back of FA Cup victories, but Spurs can boast superior recent form in this competition.
With tasty odds of 12/5 available for the visitors, we reckon an away win is the value option in our Chelsea vs Tottenham betting predictions.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea showed good heart to bounce back from a Champions League exit in Barcelona when beating Leicester in extra-time to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.
Alvaro Morata’s first goal of 2018 was cancelled out by Jamie Vardy in normal time, but a rare header from Pedro saw the Blues progress.
Pedro is hoping the cup success will inspire an upturn in Chelsea’s league situation, with Antonio Conte’s side five points behind Spurs in fifth place.
He said: “It’s an opportunity for us to go to the final and help us fight until the end for the top four.”
However, while the Blues did scrape a win against Crystal Palace in their last league game, we can’t forget a run of four defeats in five previous matches in this competition.
Conte is sweating on the fitness of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Andreas Christensen. Courtois did not feature for Belgium during the international break because of a hamstring problem, while defender Christensen was sent back by Denmark after struggling with muscle fatigue.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham were far more convincing victors in the FA Cup, with Christian Eriksen bagging a brace and Erik Lamela also netting in a 3-0 triumph at Swansea.
Team-mate Jan Vertonghen said of the outstanding Eriksen: “Christian is a special player and when he drops into that role he is different class.
“He has taken his game to the next level and he’s up there with the best midfielders.”
Losing Harry Kane to injury is obviously a blow, but Fernando Llorente is an able deputy and Son Heung-min has the energy to play up front if required.
Spurs have won five of their last six league games, including impressive victories over Manchester United and Arsenal, while they put in another strong display when drawing 2-2 at Liverpool in the other fixture.
On Tottenham not winning at this venue since 1990, Mauricio Pochettino commented: “History is history and is there, but it is not going to help. That is not what counts.
“I think it is not a point to be focused on for us. We are focused, and we must be focused on the win and the performance.”
We’re finishing off our Chelsea vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 11/1 for a 2-1 away win.
