- 4:30 pm:Tottenham vs Chelsea
Tottenham vs Chelsea Betting PreviewTottenham secured three consecutive Premier League victories in the first three matchweeks against Wolves, Watford, and Manchester City. But the Spurs seem to have lost their moment as they suffered a 3-0 defeat in their last top-flight outing at Crystal Palace and managed to earn just a draw in their opening Europa Conference League outing against Rennes (2-2). Nuno Espirito Santo's side has scored five goals and conceding none in their three home victories so far this season.
Chelsea have made a very strong start to the season collecting three victories and a draw from their first four games. The Blues sit at second place in the table with 10 points. They also recorded a 1-0 victory over Zenit St. Petersburg in Champions League at Stamford Bridge, but the Blues looked sluggish in the effort. Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal of the game.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches versus Tottenham - winning four of them and conceding just one goal in that run. In this corresponding fixture last term, Jorginho penalty propelled Chelsea to a 1-0 win in the first days of Thomas Tuchel's reign.

Probable Line-UpsTottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Emerson, Sanchez, Romero, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Skipp; Gil, Alli, Son; Kane
Spurs have lost Japhet Tanganga to suspension and most likely Eric Dier to injury. Emerson Royal is expected to start as right back while Davinson Sanchez and Cristian Romero will form the centre-back pair. Son Heung-min is supposedly hopeful of being passed fit to face the European champions, and should be handed a start alongside Dele Alli and Bryan Gil behind the lone striker Harry Kane. In midfield, Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojberg should feature from the off. Lucas Moura, Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon and Steven Bergwijn are not 100% fit.
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Havertz; Lukaku
N'Golo Kante will return for the Blues from an ankle problem but the likes of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic are expected to play in the middle of the park, with Saul Niguez providing a further option. Kai Havertz should be reintroduced to the attack over Hakim Ziyech while Mason Mount and Romelu Lukaku will retain their berth. Marcos Alonso and Reece James are the favorites for the wing-backs spots. Christian Pulisic remain sidelined because of an ankle injury.
Our Tottenham vs Chelsea Predictions
Spurs have won 11 of their last 13 games at home in all competitions but have not beaten the Blues in their last five Premier League meetings (four defeats, one draw). Looking purely at this fixture, Chelsea obviously have the upper hand. Tottenham Hotspur are struggling with injuries and the absence of many key players. We back Chelsea to continue their impressive start in the Premier League. The 2-0 Chelsea to win is our pick in the Correct Score market. As to goalscorers, Marcos Alonso is our selection as the Spaniard could exploit Emerson Royal's defensive weakness on that side of the pitch. Alternatively, you can profit from WIlliam Hill's enhanced odds and back Lukaku to score at 50/1.
