Chelsea vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: 1st April 2018, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
It is a six pointer in Champions League qualification race when fifth placed Chelsea welcome fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur for the Premier League match on Sunday evening. The teams are separated by 5 points and the Blues will take motivation from their 22 match unbeaten run against their North London rivals, who are without their star striker Harry Kane.
Form wise, Chelsea have inconsistent throughout the season and went into the international break losing 3 of their last 5 matches. The only positive is their home record, yet they had some blips here and there as the defeats to the likes of Bournemouth and Burnley cannot be taken lightly.
Spurs on the other hand are on a red hot run. They are unbeaten in the last 12 Premier League games, but Harry Kane has been the major contributor to that success. The England international picked up a ligament injury in their latest win against Bournemouth and could be sidelined for a month. Meantime, Son Heung-Min is on form lately and scored seven goals from his last five appearances. It remained to be seen if he could do the same without Kane.
Chelsea vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
- Spurs lost 1-2 when they met Chelsea in the early days of the current campaign.
- Tottenham had won only once during their last 7 meetings with Chelsea in all competitions, drew 2 and lost 4.
- Chelsea are unbeaten in 22 home games against Tottenham in all competitions.
- The Blues scored at least twice in the last 7 fixtures against Spurs at the Stamford Bridge and they won in 5 of them.
Chelsea vs Tottenham: Prediction
Chelsea are the biggest underperformers of the 2017/18 English Premier League season. Still, they have a good account of themselves while playing at the Bridge. They are unbeaten in four in all competitions including the 1-1 stalemate against Barcelona.
Harry Kane’s absence is a big blow for Spurs as the England international contributed 41% of the team goals this season. We have seen them struggling every time they are without him.
Therefore, the Blues have the upper hand here especially when they are unbeaten in the h2h meetings since 1998.
