Chelsea vs Tottenham Prediction & Match Preview

Chelsea welcome Tottenham to Stamford Bridge for Sunday’s London derby in the English Premier League.

Both teams are in excellent form and Spurs are at the top of the league table with 20 points while the Blues are third with a 2 point deficit.

Followed by their 2-0 win against Newcastle on the weekend, Chelsea stretched their winning streak across all competitions to 6 games with a 2-1 away win at Rennes on Tuesday.

Lampard’s men scored over 1.5 goals in each of those wins and the goal conceded at Roazhon Park is only the second during the period.

Meantime, Spurs backed up their elite 2-0 win over Manchester City with the 4-0 thrashing of Ludogorets Razgrad for a 5th win on the bounce across all competition.

However, Mourinho’s men have had a lower return from their attackers in recent weeks in the Premier League, 15 of the total 21 goals came from the first 5 games, while only 6 goals came from the last 4.

Team News

Frank Lampard has a fully fit squad at his disposal and the only doubtful player is Christian Pulisic, who was out with a hamstring injury for a month.

Meantime, Toby Alderweireld, Harry Winks and Erik Lamela remains on the sidelines for Spurs along with Matt Doherty due to a positive Covid-19.

Chelsea vs Tottenham Head-to-head

The last three Premier League h2h games were won by Chelsea.

The corresponding fixture at the Stamford Bridge last season saw a 2-1 ft scoreline.

Both teams scored in 7 of their last 10 head-to-head meetings across all competitions.

Chelsea vs Tottenham Prediction

These two teams are ranked 1 and 2 in goal scoring charts of the Premier League and their h2h games have a history of seeing both teams to score and this is the same bet we need to take as the top option with odds priced at 1.60 offering decent value for the risk involved.

Another reason to back the btts is the presence of Heung-min Son min, Harry Kane and Gareth Bale on one end and the likes of Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech at the other end.

The full-time result will be too close and any bet in that market comes with a high risk since there has been a winner in 8 of their last 9 EPL h2h matches.

Moving on to a better option, we could go with the over 1.5 goals in the second half. The Blues saw this in each of their 4 home games of the season, while Spurs saw the same in the first two away games and scored a late goal in their last 2 away games.
