Tottenham Hotspur Vs Chelsea Prediction, Odds And Team News

Hoping to maintain their unbeaten start to the new Premier League season, Chelsea will make the short trip to north London and clash with rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues have been fantastic in the early stages of the new campaign, winning three and drawing one of their opening four matches in the league.

Tottenham have also won three of their last four games, but were left reeling last weekend after they were beaten 3-0 against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Interestingly, the Blues have netted nine times in their four league matches and will fancy themselves against Spurs who so evidently lacked creativity against the Eagles last time out.


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea to get your teeth stuck into.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea betting tips & predictions

Tottenham Hotspur are 7/2 to win, with Chelsea priced at 8/11 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 29/10.

Prediction: 1-2 (13/2)

Win to Nil: Chelsea (15/8)

Chelsea travel to Tottenham full of confidence after another victory in midweek when they overcame Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League.

We reckon Chelsea will earn another three points at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, with Thomas Tuchel’s side expected to go from strength to strength throughout the campaign.

First Goalscorer: Romelu Lukaku (4/1)

Romelu Lukaku has been hugely impressive since rejoining Chelsea this summer and the Belgium striker has already been prolific for the Blues.

The former Inter Milan man scored in his first match back in a Chelsea shirt against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, before netting twice against Aston Villa last weekend.

To Be Carded: Oliver Skipp (13/5)

Oliver Skipp has picked up two Premier League bookings in four matches, against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Watford, and the star-studded midfield of Chelsea could test him once again.

Arsenal’s Sambi Lokonga and Aston Villa’s John McGinn - two central midfielders - have already been booked against Chelsea this season, and we're backing Skipp to be the third to do so.

Tottenham Hotspur team news

Spurs have lost Japhet Tanganga to suspension and Eric Dier to injury ahead of Sunday's game, so Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez may be thrown straight back into action following their period of self-isolation.

Elsewhere, Son Heung-min will be hopeful of being passed fit to face the European champions, while Bryan Gil should be handed a start alongside Harry Kane amid Spurs' absentee crisis.


Chelsea team news

Chelsea are not expected to welcome Christian Pulisic back from an ankle injury just yet, but there is more optimism over N'Golo Kante's fitness, who missed the midweek triumph against Zenit.

Reece James - who had his Champions League medal among others stolen from his house while he was playing at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night - is back from a domestic ban and will hope to reprise his role on the right.
