Live on Sky Sports
Mind the gap is something you will be familiar with when traveling around London. For Chelsea, the gap between them and fifth place in the Premier League may well disappear this weekend.
Four out of five is a key stat for this match. Tottenham have won four of their last five league games but Chelsea have lost four of their last five. When Tottenham sacked Maurizio Pochettino, they were 12 points behind fourth place. Now under Jose Mourinho, the gap is down to just three points and a Tottenham home win (which is 7/5 (2.4) at Unibet) will see them replace Chelsea in the top four.
Tottenham have suddenly rediscovered their form since the arrival of Mourinho. They are now to finish in Champions League places this season. The goals have been flowing with Kane, Alli and Son all rediscovering their scoring boots since the Special One arrived. Son scored a fantastic goal in the last home league game, he’s 2/1 (3.0) at Betfred to score on Sunday.
Chelsea’s season has been an up and down one so far. A poor start followed by good form and now a terrible run of results. They lost 1-0 at home to Bournemouth last weekend and this trip to Tottenham isn’t going to be an easy one for them. You can get odds of 7/4 (2.75) at SkyBet on them winning this match.
Their away form has been impressive with 20 goals scored but 17 conceded. Five out of eight away league games have been won but the last two have been lost to Manchester City and Everton. No draws yet, William Hill will give you 19/10 (2.90) that their first away league draw of the season happens on Sunday.
Tottenham have won three of their last five league games against Chelsea. It’s usually a fixture that sees a few goals scored with over 2.5 in three of the last four league clashes. The odds of that stat coming up in this match are 4/7 (1.57) if your wager is placed with BetVictor.
Tottenham will continue to be without Erik Lamela, Hugo Lloris and Ben Davies. Tanguy Ndombele and Michel Vorm could be in the squad for this match.
Tottenham can make home advantage pay in this Premier League match. Their home form is good and Chelsea are on a bad run at present. Mourinho can get a win against his former club in a game that sees both teams scoring. The odds of that are 11/4 (3.75) at Betfair.
