We end this coming weekend’s Premier League action with another decent-looking clash as Tottenham travel across London to face Chelsea.
It will be the fourth time the sides have met this season, having already played out a 0-3 away league win for Chelsea, plus a two-legged EFL Semi- Final, which Chelsea also won.
Spurs fans will cling to the fact they held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw in this fixture 12 months ago, but their overall recent record over the Blues is dire. Chelsea have lost just once at home to Spurs in the Premier League (29 games) and are unbeaten in their last over Spurs in their last 10 meetings.
Add in that Spurs haven’t even scored in their last five against Chelsea, then these stats don’t make great reading if you fancy an away win here.
The match betting reflects this too, with Chelsea at 1.65, the Draw 4.00 and Spurs on offer at 5.00.
Recent clashes have, however, generally been low-scoring affairs – 8 of the last 11 meetings went UNDER 2.5 GOALS, so this might appeal at 1.90.
Both teams DIDN’T score in the last 5 head-to-heads either – this can be supported at 1.90 too.
With 10 of the last 29 (34%) clashes ended in DRAWS though, then the 4.00 on offer on the sides sharing the points here doesn’t look bad value, but the last time Spurs beat Chelsea away in the league was in 2018 thanks to a 1-3 away win.
As mentioned though, Spurs have found it hard to find the back of the net against Chelsea – they’ve not managed it in three meetings this season and haven’t scored in their last 5 over the Blues. With this in mind, then a Chelsea win ‘to nil’ might appeal too at 2.75.
Higher up the scoring markets are the usual suspects for Chelsea, including Lukaku, who is 4.00 (1st) or 1.90 (anytime), while Spurs – like in most games – will pin their hopes on Harry Kane at 6.00 (1st) or 2.60 (anytime) to break their current barren scoring spell over the Blues.
However, this is a game that we’d prefer to keep simple and just stick with Chelsea to take all three points – something they’ve done in two of the last three repeat fixtures.
JUICESTORM VERDICT: CHELSEA TO WIN @1.65
