Chelsea v Tottenham Premier League Tips
Tottenham will head across London on Sunday with a spring in their step to face Chelsea. There is no love lost between the two sides, but Spurs will be buoyed by their last-gasp 3-2 win over Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday, and it could be a turning point in their season.
The victory propelled Antonio Conte’s charges into fifth spot in the table, and at the time of writing, they are just a point behind West Ham, but with the advantage of three games in hand.
In contrast, Chelsea have endured a mini slump of late, and they have won just once in their past five Premier League outings. Although they still appear to be in the driving seat to cement a top-four finish, Conte remains unbeaten in England’s top flight as Spurs boss. There are so many fascinating dimensions to this showdown, and we can’t wait to see how this one unfolds. We have picked out three juicy looking tips to get your teeth stuck into, so check them out.
Today’s Best Enhanced Odds & Price Boosts
Harry Kane to score anytime against Chelsea
You can never keep a top striker like Harry Kane down for too long. Although his goal scoring output has diminished significantly this term, he seems to have hit a mini purple patch at just the right time. Against Leicester, he could have had a hat-trick. Although he took his goal with aplomb, the England international saw a header cannon back off the bar, and he spurned a fabulous opening when he blazed over when baring down on Kasper Schmeichel’s goal.
Stamford Bridge hasn’t brought Kane much joy down the years, and victories have been scarce for Tottenham. However, when on form, he’s clinical, and he will ask serious questions of the Chelsea rearguard. And bet365 fancies Kane to get off the mark against the Blues. You can get rather short odds of 10/11 for Kane to score anytime against Chelsea.
Total Corners Under 10.5
If you look down the years, Chelsea have been dominant at home against Tottenham. In fact, Spurs’ last victory in west London came four years ago thanks to a 3-1 victory, but they have generally succumbed under the weight of expectation.
The margins are usually quite tight, and usually, it is a moment of brilliance or a defensive blunder that can be the difference. Although the Blues boast plenty of height when it comes to set-pieces, the majority of this game will be contested in open play. Well, Paddy Power seems rather confident in this respect, and they are offering a price of 5/6 for there to be Under 10.5 corners over 90 minutes.
Game to finish as a draw
As mentioned previously, Tottenham’s toils at Chelsea have been well documented. Overall, it has been a bogey ground for them, but under Conte, Spurs look like a more secure and well-drilled unit, and they are offering more offensively than they did when Nuno Santo was in charge.
While Spurs have improved, it is hard to see them coming away with all three points. William Hill are offering an intriguing price of 14/5 for the honours to be shared.
