Chelsea Preview – No home comforts for Lampard to fall back on?

Mistakes were made at Stamford Bridge last Monday. Backing them to capitalise on Man Utd’s dismal recent form – The Red Devils had won one of five league games prior, failing to even score in the other four fixtures – I was left watching what could only be described as another pitiful performance in West London. The key wording being ‘another’, because this was not the first time Chelsea (4th – W12 D5 L9) left supporters and punters alike feeling short-changed this season.

It is clear now that my faith was misplaced, which is easier said with the benefit of hindsight. The Blues were awful last time out. VAR was a contributing factor in their demise with some bizarre decisions, however, a fifth home defeat of the season owed more to the hosts’ ineptitude than poor officiating. That was the fourth ‘to nil’ defeat at Stamford Bridge in 2019-20, having also succumbed to the same fate against Bournemouth, West Ham and Southampton.

So uninspiring at their own residence have Frank Lampard’s side been that Chelsea, whose record at home reads W5 D3 L5, are averaging more points on their travels this season. Defeat to Man Utd would also extend their run without a league win to four matches (D2 L2), with their last taste of victory a 3-0 scoreline at home to Burnley on 11 January – their only success on home soil in five previous attempts (W1 D1 L3).

Tottenham Win To Nil



Tottenham Hotspur Preview – How damaging is the loss of Son?

Once news broke on Tuesday that Son Heung-Min was set to undergo surgery and thus unavailable for the foreseeable, it almost felt like the writing was on the wall for Tottenham (5th – W11 D7 L8) with regards to Wednesday’s Champions League contest with RB Leipzig. I previewed that game and, unfortunately for me, the news came too late. A 1-0 loss at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was to follow – a scoreline that actually flattered them, according to xG (TOT 0.79 – 2.05 RBL).

Opta tell us that 20 of the 43 Premier League goals Tottenham scored this season came from either Harry Kane (11) or Son (9). That works out at nearly 50% of this team’s total output and leaves Jose Mourinho with a dearth of attacking options from which to find a regular goalscorer. Lucas Moura often leads the line but lacks a clinical edge, as emphasised by a return of 4 goals in 24 league appearances this season. Dele Alli suddenly becomes this team’s most prolific outlet with 7 goals although his petulance at being substituted in midweek might see him overlooked here.

On to more positive matters and a 3-2 victory away to Aston Villa last weekend made it three consecutive wins in the Premier League. Spurs are now a point shy of the top-four and would leapfrog Chelsea with a rare win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Son was instrumental in all this recent success, though. The South Koren netted against Norwich (2-1), Man City (2-0) and even bagged a brace at Villa Park.

Chelsea Vs Tottenham Betting Advice

The forwards of Chelsea are lacking in confidence and continue to misfire. Whereas Tottenham are now missing their two standout attackers at a time when they were beginning to gather momentum after three straight wins in the league. The Blues did win the reverse fixture 2-0 in December, though, and were a class above then. However, banking on a repeat when they’re without a win in four league games, and have one win from the last five at Stamford Bridge, feels too bold.

Chelsea Vs Tottenham – Key Facts

  • At home this season, Chelsea have recorded as losses as wins in the Premier League (W5 D3 L5). Four of five defeats were ‘to nil’.
  • Three consecutive wins in the league for Tottenham after winning 3-2 away to Aston Villa last time out, only their third away win of the season (W3 D5 L5).
  • Tottenham have won one of their last 33 away games in all competitions versus Chelsea (W1 D11 L21), losing 2-0 on last season’s visit to West London.

No Kane or Son – especially the latter who had been in a rich vein of scoring form prior to injury – undoubtedly makes Tottenham a less potent outfit. Yet their form of late is far superior and has to count for something. Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho does have a track record for delivering in adversity. This doesn’t have the makings of a classic, either. Tottenham Draw No Bet is 13/5 (Unibet).
