What Trueform says for Chelsea vs Tottenham
Chelsea and Tottenham both suffered disappointment over the weekend but we’re backing these fierce rivals to approach this London derby in a positive manner.
Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine head-to-head encounters between the Blues and Spurs, including five of six Premier League meetings during that period.
Punters can get 7/10 for each side to be on target at Stamford Bridge and that is our first Chelsea vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea suffered penalty shoot-out heartbreak when taking on Manchester City at Wembley in the EFL Cup final.
Much has been made of Kepa Arrizabalaga’s refusal to be substituted towards the end of extra-time, but that should not detract from a valiant performance by the Blues.
The goalkeeper and Maurizio Sarri later played down a misunderstanding and David Luiz was adamant the players are on the manager’s side.
Luiz said: “The coach has the power over the group. He has our respect. For me, there is not a problem here for that.
“We all believe in his philosophy, we all believe in the way he wants us to play. That’s why we did a great game against the best team in Europe at the moment.”
Chelsea’s form has been up and down of late, but they did show what they are capable of when beating Huddersfield 5-0 and Malmo 3-0 at this venue.
Looking at the Chelsea vs Tottenham odds, we just favour the Blues to prevail here at 7/5.
Last Chelsea line-up: Kepa, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Emerson, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley, Hazard, Pedro, Willian.
Emerson Palmieri has been preferred to Marcos Alonso at left-back of late and could continue, but Sarri has yet to decide between Kepa and Willy Caballero.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham travelled to Burnley in good spirits on Saturday after following up a hat-trick of Premier League wins by beating Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the Champions League.
However, despite Harry Kane marking his return from injury with a 65th-minute strike at Turf Moor, Spurs saw their slim title hopes suffer a huge blow when losing 2-1 to the Clarets.
Kane commented: “It’s a shame, because when we needed to find another gear, we didn’t have it in the locker.
“We’ve got to be real with ourselves, we’ve got a tough week coming up, so we’ve got to dust it off and be ready for that.”
This fixture is followed by games against Arsenal at Wembley and Dortmund in Germany, so the pressure is very much on Spurs.
We just fear the visitors may feel the strain and 35/4 for a repeat of last month’s 2-1 loss at Stamford Bridge in the EFL Cup semis is added to our Chelsea vs Tottenham betting tips.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Rose, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Foyth, Aurier, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Kane.
Dele Alli is still on the comeback trail from a hamstring injury while his England team-mate Eric Dier is laid low with tonsillitis.
