A London encounter is looming over the city in the upcoming weekend. Tottenham will host Chelsea, an important encounter for Ange Postecoglou’s team. They remain unbeaten in the Premier League and James Maddison’s connection with Heung-min Son only consolidates Tottenham’s leadership position. Chelsea’s counter-attacks could prove to be destructive if Tottenham’s rest defense gets caught up in the heat of transitions. 

Chelsea needs to win the game, still sitting at the eleventh place, as their schedule proves to be merciless. After Tottenham, the Blues are set to face Manchester City, Newcastle, Brighton, and Manchester United. The recent loss against Brentford (0-2) only set the team further back, which still struggles to score as Nicolas Jackson is still finding his feet and form under Pochettino’s guidance.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Prediction and Odds

According to Opta Stats, the Spurs have the most shots in the Premier League (140), and it’s likely to see them shoot quite a few more against Chelsea, given the troubles in their defence. Chelsea’s main hope will be to ensure midfield dominance, thanks to Enzo Fernández and Levi Colwill, who should act as a shield for a defence that is still struggling to deal with elite attackers this season. It will be particularly important against Tottenham, given Heung-min Son’s partnership with James Maddison, where the two are accompanied by the midfield base of Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr. 

Tottenham has an argument, thus far, for being the most balanced team in the Premier League. Van de Ven and Romero have assured stability for the front four, while Son and Maddison continue to ensure that Harry Kane’s exit is not felt in London.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Betting Tips

Tottenham’s defense, however, should ensure that it cuts off connections to Mudryk, arguably Chelsea’s biggest attacker despite the numerous mistakes he makes on and off the ball as part of his learning curve.
