Chelsea v Tottenham Betting Tips
It’s tough at the top of the Premier League. Manchester City are head and shoulders above the competition when it comes to challenging for the title but the teams who form the chasing pack aren’t even guaranteed a place in the top four.
Currently, Manchester United and Liverpool look safe in second and third respectively which leaves Tottenham and Chelsea battling for the last remaining place in next season’s Champions League.
It’s Spurs who currently have the edge with a five point lead over their London rivals. Things can change significantly after the match at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon in London though.
With so much potentially on the line and such a fierce rivalry between these two clubs, the last EPL match of the weekend could be the best of the lot.
Tottenham to Leave with a Positive Result
Stamford Bridge has not traditionally been a happy hunting ground for Tottenham. Their last league win at Chelsea’s home ground came all the way back in February 1990.
You, however, could make a very good argument that this is the best Tottenham side to have visited the Bridge in all that time. That’s true even though Mauricio Pochettino will have to make do without his star striker, Harry Kane, who has been ruled out for at least a few weeks with an ankle injury.
The bookies’ odds have taken Spurs’ poor record against Chelsea into account (they’ve won just three of their last 20 meetings in all competitions against the Blues) but we think Pochettino’s men will be able to inflict a damaging blow on Chelsea’s top four ambitions by securing a point.
Chelsea may be the defending Premier League champions but this season has been a long way from their exploits of 12 months ago. Antonio Conte has gone from being viewed as a genius for the speed with which he took to English football management to being openly criticised by some of his own players for overly negative tactics.
As well as reported problems in the dressing room, Chelsea have managed to beat just two wins at home against sides currently in the top half of the EPL.
The Blues will give their all to keep their Champions League hopes alive but this Tottenham side are a match for anybody in Europe which makes the draw look overpriced at $3.35 with Unibet.
Expect Chances at Both Ends
Son Heung-min is the man that Mauricio Pochettino has trusted to play through the middle for Tottenham while Harry Kane remains sidelined.
The South Korean international came close to leaving the club at one stage due to a lack of first team opportunities but he’s become a vital part of the team this season. Son is Tottenham’s second highest scorer in the Premier League and can come up with another big goal at odds of $3.20 with Bet365.
It’s not just Tottenham who have classy attacking players in form currently. Like Son, Willian has had to bide his time and make the most of his limited starts for Chelsea.
The Brazilian has certainly done that in the past couple of months and has become one of the first names on Conte’s team sheet. Willian looks a very good price to be Chelsea’s first goalscorer at $6.50 with William Hill.
Given the amount of attacking talent that both teams have on show, it makes sense to expect goals and chances at both ends of the pitch. The best way of capitalising on this is by betting on both teams to score at $1.75 with BetEasy.
