Tottenham v Chelsea Match Preview, Free Bets & Betting Tips

Tottenham will be aiming to strengthen their grip on a top four spot when they lock horns with Chelsea on Sunday afternoon at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

With Newcastle in EFL Cup Final action later that day against Manchester United, Tottenham have an opportunity to pile the misery on Chelsea, who find themselves languishing in 10th spot.

Graham Potter will need to rally his men after a surprise 1-0 defeat at home to Southampton last weekend, and there is no love lost between Chelsea and Tottenham.

More pertinently, the Blues have to address their problems in front of goal, and it will be fascinating to see if there are any tactical changes made.

As far as Tottenham are concerned, they will be hoping their 2-0 victory over West Ham has helped them turn a corner, and more significantly, injected life into Son Heung-Min, who has struggled.

All eyes will be on this storied London derby, and to navigate you through this match, we have handpicked a couple of tips you should consider adding to your betting slips.

Tottenham to enjoy bragging rights

Tottenham have been a Jekyll and Hyde kind of team this season. There have been some moments of brilliance chucked in with some utterly abject moments.

It has been frustrating for Tottenham fans to see their side make slow starts to games before lifting themselves for the second 45 minutes.

In the previous fiery encounter back in August, a last-gasp Harry Kane equaliser rescued a point for the visiting side at Stamford Bridge, but things spilled over at the final whistle when Antonio Conte and then Blues manager Thomas Tuchel clashed on the touchline.

Eight defeats at this stage of the campaign has been far too many from a Tottenham perspective, and they can’t afford to slip up if they want to clinch a top-four spot.

Although they have struggled at home and been overrun against Chelsea in recent seasons, including a 3-0 humbling in September 2021, Tottenham could well claim all three points.

My first pick is for Tottenham to win and both teams to score, a price that is available at 4/1 with bet365.

Harry Kane to make a meaty contribution

London derbies and Harry Kane go hand in hand. Well, 48 Premier League career goals against fellow London teams would suggest he always relishes a derby.

Although his record against Chelsea hasn’t always made for impressive reading, he was on target when the sides met at Stamford Bridge.

Kane appears to be facing a losing battle in the Golden Boot race, as he currently trails Erling Haaland (26) by nine goals.

But Kane will be desperate to get one over Chelsea, and from a neutral point of view, it will have been pleasing to see him rekindle his telepathic partnership with Son against West Ham.

Despite firing blanks in his last two league outings for Tottenham, Kane could deliver a sumptuous performance against the Blues, and one that will reward him with two goals.

For my second pick, I have sided with Kane to pop up with a double, a price that is advertised at 13/2 with Paddy Power.
