Tottenham vs Chelsea Premier League

Saturday November 24th, 17:30

The Premier League returns this weekend with the standout game of the round between Tottenham and Chelsea in the early Saturday evening in a game which is too close to call between two sides who are evenly matched.

Predictions

Only one point and one position separates these two sides ahead of Saturday’s game at Wembley, showing how important this clash could prove to be come the end of the season.
Spurs have won six of their last seven league games and whilst the Blues have won only three matches in this time period, they remain unbeaten through all competitions this season.

It will be the first time these two have played each other this campaign and it is a clash which many are finding too close to call, with the hosts needing a win to leapfrog their opponents into the top three.

Spurs have not enjoyed a strong home record this season – losing two of their four matches and not moving back into their new home of White Hart Lane, continuing to play across North London at Wembley.

Neither side are favourites for the game – neither are in sparkling form yet both continue to pick up points and maintain their strong challenge for a top four spot in May.
It is too risky to pick an outright winner for this game and it could easily go either way, but an intriguing encounter is most likely to end with the spoils shared and a 1-1 draw.

Betting Tips

The England international has not enjoyed his strongest form this campaign but is only 22 and possesses a strong goal threat. Chelsea are one of his favourite opponents too – he netted twice in the 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge in April and twice in a 2-0 home victory in January 2017. Indeed, the former MK Dons man has grabbed five goals in his last five outings against the Blues – and will be looking to continue that impressive run here.

A draw is the most likely outcome from this game but there is genuine value in that outcome alongside both teams finding the net. Combined, these two sides have 47 league goals from 24 games – just shy of a two-goal-per-game average – while their defenses (eight and 10 goals conceded respectively) are leakier than their Manchester City and Liverpool counterparts (five goals conceded each). A scoring draw is a likely outcome from the tie.

Statistics

Head to Head

This is an evenly-balanced match-up – of the last nine meetings between the sides, Chelsea have won four, Spurs have triumphed three times and there have been two draws. The North London side triumphed 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in April, gaining revenge for the Blues winning 2-1 at Wembley back in August 2017.

Stats

  • Tottenham have more points (27) than any other side who have been fourth after 12 games in Premier League history.
  • Coincidentally, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have more points at this stage of the campaign than any other Spurs outfit in the Premier League.
  • Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea are the only club who are unbeaten across all competitions in Europe’s top five leagues – after Juventus lost to Manchester United earlier this month.
  • Only Manchester City (36) have scored more goals than Chelsea (27) in the Premier League this campaign.
