Tottenham vs Chelsea Betting Preview
Following a lackluster previous season, in which they failed to secure a European competition berth, and the departure of talisman Harry Kane this summer, Tottenham enter Matchweek 11 as table toppers, having registered 8 wins and 2 draws in their opening 10 matches. Arsenal's defeat to Newcastle on Saturday means Tottenham are the only side yet to lose in the Premier League this season. Ange Postecoglu's men maintained their first-placed position by seeing off Crystal Palace 2-1 two Fridays ago. The Lilywhites have picked up 26 points from their first 10 EPL outings, their best tally at this stage of the campaign since the 1960-61 season.
Chelsea are currently in 12th place in the Premier League having won just three Premier League games so far. Their 2-0 home defeat to Brentford ended a four-game unbeaten run which also included a respectable 2-2 draw with Arsenal two weeks ago. Mauricio Pochettino's men, who enter this clash on the back of a last-16 EFL Cupsuccess over Blackburn, have collected 7 points from their last three league games on the road, albeit against a trio of bottom-half teams in Fulham, Bournemouth and newly-promoted Burnley.
Spurs have won just one of the last nine Premier League derbies between these two teams. A 2-0 victory against the Blues in February this year ended Tottenham's winless run of 8 matches against Chelsea in the Premier League.
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Johnson; Son
Brennan Johnson is pushing to replace Richarlison on the left-hand side of Spurs' attack while Destiny Udogie is expected to return at left-back as he looks recovered from the knock he sustained against Fulham. Ben Davies is an injury doubt while Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon, Alfie Whiteman and Ryan Sessegnon are long-term absentees. No changes are expected in midfield where Yves Bissouma, James Maddison and Pape Matar Sarr will feature from the off. Pedro Porro, Micky Van De Ven and Christian Romero will complete the backline.
Chelsea (4-3-3): Sanchez; James, Disasi, T. Silva, Colwill; Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher; Palmer, Jackson, Sterling
Mykhailo Mudryk has returned to full training ahead of this match, while Armando Broja could be involved on the bench since the front trio is likely to be formed by Raheem Sterling, Cole Palmer and Nicolas Jackson. The fit-again Reece James is expected to start at right back, with Axel Disasi partnering Thiago Silva at the heart of the back, and Levi Colwill playing as left back. Moises Caicedo, Conor Gallagher and Enzo Fernandex will anchor the midfield. The likes of Trevoh Chalobah, Carney Chukwuemeka, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia and Christopher Nkunku remain sidelined.
Our Tottenham vs Chelsea Predictions
Tottenham have won all four of their home games in the Premier League this term and are benefitting from not playing European football this year.
Chelsea have several missing key players and several issues to address ahead of this London derby. They come into this fixture after yet another unconvincing display, albeit in victory, against lower-league Blackburn.
As a result, we believe Tottenham will make five out of fives at home against this subpar Chelsea.
Spurs to win 2-1 is our pick in the correct score market while Gallagher and Caicedo are the main candidates to be booked as they will play against an industrious Tottenham midfield.
