Tottenham News and Form – Can Spurs beat Chelsea?

Tottenham have won four of their five league games (L1) since Jose Mourinho got himself into the hot seat. So there has been a definite improvement from the Lilywhites. In those four wins in their recent form, they have scored at least two goals in each. Tottenham have hit the back of the net in each of their last 9 league games. So they shouldn’t have too much trouble breaking down a vulnerable Chelsea defence in this London derby.

The home record of Spurs this season reads W5 D2 L1 and they have banked back to back successes there, taking eight goals in total in wins over Bournemouth and Burnley. Spurs have gone undefeated in their last six games at home in the top flight. The Lilywhites have a good average of 2.4 goals per home games. They have averaged under a goal per game against them. This would be a big win, which would see them move level on points with the Blues, but above them on goal difference in the top four.

Chelsea News and Form – Can the Blues win at Tottenham?

This is a big test of Frank Lampard’s managerial prowess. The Blues have lost four of their last five games now (W1). So there have been some problems creeping into their game. While they have looked defensively rocky since the start of the season, they have just started to look devoid of a bit of attacking creativity as well. In their recent 3-1 loss at Everton and in the first half of their home defeat against Bournemouth, the Blues looked really flat. They have only scored more than one goal in just one of their last five league outings.

Now their place in the top four is under threat because of this collapse. Away from home Chelsea hold a W5 L3 record. Two of the defeat in that sequence came against sides who started the weekend inside the top six with them. Chelsea have a good scoring average of 2.5 goals per away game. But that’s been let down by them having conceded at an average of 2.1 per game. 75% of Chelsea’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Four of the six league defeats that Chelsea have suffered have been by one goal margin. Chelsea have no away clean sheet this season.

Under 2.5 goals at 11/8

Tottenham vs Chelsea Predictions

Spurs to win: It has to be Tottenham that are fancied to win here. Chelsea have lost just a touch of the clinical finishing in front of goal and their defence is still a massive problem. There should be enough from the Lilywhites to see Mourinho get one over his former club.
