Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea Match Preview

Tottenham have had a solid start to their season and are now unbeaten in twelve premiership games after losing to Manchester United on the opening game. They are in a strong position to push for top four this season with Chelsea likely to drop out and this could be a huge game come the end of the season for both sides.

Tottenham have looked strong ever since that 4-1 victory over Manchester City in late September and they have improved even further in recent weeks making it five wins from six with the remaining fixture ending in a draw against rivals Arsenal.

Tottenham will be disappointed that they haven’t managed to keep a clean sheet in their last four premiership games but overall, they have the second-best defence in the league which when combined with an attack including Harry Kane that is scoring frequently makes them credible top four contenders.

Tottenham will want to take all three points in this one as both Arsenal and Manchester City could create a slight gap between them and Spurs and it is also a good chance to gain points on Leicester or Manchester United as they face each other on Saturday.

Chelsea have had a dire start to their campaign and they will need to turn it around soon if they wish to finish in a respectable place this season. They have looked slightly stronger as a team in recent weeks but this will be a very tough test for them coming up against a Spurs side with the second-best home record in the league this season.

Willian has been their star so far with Hazard failing to score in all competitions this season, Willian scored yet another free-kick in the week against Maccabi Tel Aviv and Lloris will need to be aware of his ability in this game.

Tottenham Hotspur Latest Team News:

Tottenham will be without Erik Lamela , Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli and Alex Pritchard as they are all set to miss out again as well as losing Dele Alli for one game after picking up his fifth yellow card against West Ham last week.

Chelsea Latest Team News:

Chelsea will be missing Thibaut Courtois and Radamel Falcao for this match as expected but they could also be without John Terry and Ramires after both picked up injuries in the week against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Using head to head statistics alone it would suggest that Chelsea have the better chance of claiming all three points here.

Tottenham are going into this match in great form with four wins and a draw in their last five matches with that draw coming against rivals Arsenal at the Emirates which is a decent result too. Their attack which was struggling towards the start of the season is now firing on all cylinders after scoring 11 goals in their last five matches.

04/11/15 CHA Chelsea vs Dynamo Kiev 2 : 1
31/10/15 BPL Chelsea vs Liverpool 1 : 3

At first look Chelsea seemed to have improved in recent weeks with three wins in five matches but if you take a look at the opponents they have faced, you can see that three wins and two losses in five isn’t great.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 143 matches that have taken place between these two sides, there has been a total of 429 goals meaning that there has been an average goals per game of exactly 3.

Both sets of data suggest that the game on Sunday afternoon will see a minimum of three goals in what should be an entertaining game.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think that Tottenham will at least come out of this game with a point but I am expecting them to beat Chelsea because Tottenham have scored thirteen goals in their last five home matches whilst conceding just four goals whilst Chelsea have conceded ten goals in their last five premiership away games, and I expect Tottenham to get at least a couple of goals in this game. I have decided that my banker in this match will be Draw No Bet – Tottenham just to be slightly safer but you could easily go for the Tottenham win if you are looking for bigger odds.

And as for my saver I have gone with the man in form Harry Kane to get the first goal in this match. He has got nine goals in his last six matches and in the same fixture last year, he grabbed two for Spurs in a 5-3 victory.
