Tottenham vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: 26 February 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).

Matchday No 25 will be closed with the London derby between Tottenham and Chelsea on Sunday afternoon at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The hosts will enter it in higher spirits after a 2-0 victory over West Ham in the previous round. It was a strong overall performance from the Spurs who claimed the spoils via a great defensive effort and the second-half strikes from Emerson Royal and Heung-Min Son.

Spurs allowed the Hammers just a single shot on target in the 90 minutes of play, a performance that came in just at the right time for the team to boost up the spirits after shipping four goals in the road loss at Leicester two weeks ago.

Tottenham will be looking to translate such a fine defensive showing here against Chelsea who have not been pulling up any trees of late.

The Blues failed to find the back of the net in a shocking 0-1 home loss at the hands of relegation-threatened and out-of-form Southampton eight days ago.

Chelsea are now winless in four consecutive Premier League games. They have scored only one goal in the previous five outings across competitions, a run that involves a 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 round tie.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Head-to-head

  • We have seen an attractive 2-2 stalemate when these two London rivals locked horns in the first half of the season, back in mid-August last year at Stamford Bridge.
  • Chelsea have four wins and a draw in the previous five clashes against Spurs.
  • Tottenham have failed to find the back of the net in four of the previous five encounters with Chelsea.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea have been toothless in the final third in the last couple of weeks. The fact they have bagged just one goal in the last five games in all competitions best shows the state of their attacking line at the moment.

We will take the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.80 odds as the main betting option for the London derby, while you can alternatively back Spurs to win at the more attractive 2.55 odds.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.80 (4/5)
  • Tottenham to win @ 2.55 (31/20) odd.
