Competition: Premier League
Market: Tottenham Hotspur to win against Chelsea
Odds: 8/5 @ Bet 365
Tottenham Hotspur host the Premier League defending champions Chelsea at White Hart Lane this weekend, and find themselves as favourites to come away with all three points given the contrasting form between the London rivals this season. Spurs are 10 places and 10 points above the Blues in the table ahead of Sunday’s outing, and are enjoying a 12-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.
Chelsea are enduring one of the worst title defences in Premier League history with Jose Mourinho’s side currently 15th after 13 games. The Blues have lost seven games and have conceded more goals than 14 other sides in the table. Chelsea are underdogs for this weekend’s clash with how poor they’ve been on the road, losing four of six away games in the division, and are coming up against an in-form Tottenham side having beaten Manchester City this season.
Spurs are unbeaten at White Hart Lane, winning four and drawing three of their seven games at home, and haven’t lost since the opening day. The Londoners are immediately coming off the back of three wins and a draw from their last four, and will be full of confidence of getting a result against a Chelsea side that have suffered three defeats from four overall.
Victory for Tottenham Hotspur could see Mauricio Pochettino’s side go second in the Premier League depending on other results this weekend, while Chelsea risk sliding down the table again if they drop points. A win for the visitors will still see them end the weekend in the bottom-half, but they’re coming off the back of consecutive victories in all competitions to threaten a result at White Hart Lane.
