Tottenham vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Sunday 19th September 2021
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
This is a huge London derby and there is no love lost between these sides and the atmosphere in the ground will be electric.
Tottenham have started the season well but last weekend they faced a reality check when they were beaten 3-0 away from home by Crystal Palace and that was seen as a surprise.
In midweek Tottenham played Rennes in France in the Conference League and came away with a 2-2 draw. It is clear that Tottenham are not playing their best football away from home.
Chelsea look like champions and are playing very well. They eased past Aston Villa winning 3-0 last weekend and striker Romelu Lukaku is scoring the goals. Lukaku repeated the trick when he got the winner in midweek as Chelsea beat Zenit 1-0 in the Champions League.
Chelsea are 2nd and Tottenham are 7th although there is just 1 point between the teams so a lot can change over the course of this weekend.
Tottenham vs Chelsea: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Chelsea.
- The last 3 meetings have all ended in under 2.5 goals.
- It’s been 3 years since Tottenham beat Chelsea at home in the league.
Tottenham vs Chelsea: Prediction
Chelsea will be the favourites and they are on a roll no doubt about it. However we have to respect Tottenham, when they click they are an excellent team all round, just ask Manchester City who have already lost here.
Chelsea will have more of the possession and try and boss the game but we think Tottenham will up their game and make this a hard match for Chelsea.
When we look at Thomas Tuchel’s side we can think they will not lose many games this season, but they will lose a few on the road and we think this being a London derby this could be one of them, the value on the home win is very good and we will go with this.
