Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea: With José Mourinho, the Spurs won four of their last five PL games. And now, with a home advantage in the middle of them, and Chelsea having trouble returning to victory, count on Tottenham to be too hot to face the Blues this weekend.
Tottenham extended his winning streak to two jogging games last week after doing enough to secure a 2-1 victory on the road against the Wolves. The hosts seemed to be only part of the loot in this last clash after Adama Traore canceled Lucas Moura’s first game.
However, a super late winner, courtesy of Jan Vertonghen, said the three points in favor of the Spurs.
With 26 points in the bag, the home team finished in the top five.
Chelsea, on the other hand, hit by a sharp drop in form. Their previous confrontation at home had seen them lose Bournemouth by a score of 1-0, before Everton beat them on the road with a score of 3-1.
It should also be mentioned that visitors currently no victories in their last three outings. That too, in all competitions. To make matters worse, Chelsea suffered defeat in their last two meetings with this enemy on the road.
Tottenham, on the other hand, has not admitted his defeat at home in the Premier League since late August. Given the convincing form of the hosts, Chelsea’s chances of winning certainly seem bleak.
However, the Spurs tied twice in the field this season. Since the Blues are also desperate to end their grim losing streak, the safest hit should be a double chance.
In addition, the hosts kept a blank sheet only once in their last five home games. They also conceded seven goals in their last nine games here.
Meanwhile, Chelsea has been a real threat in the third offensive, especially on the road. They found the bottom of the net twenty times so far and not stopped putting their name in the minutes since their first game against the Red Devils.
As such, expect both teams to their brand shoes on Sunday.
