Sports Innovation previews the Premier League match between Tottenham and Chelsea and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
Another London derby takes place on Sunday evening as Tottenham and Chelsea square off in the English capital.
A 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace last weekend ended a run of three consecutive Premier League wins for Spurs. The Lilywhites dropped to seventh place in the standings as a result. They’ll be desperate to return to winning ways on Sunday, although their recent record against Chelsea isn’t anything to brag about.
The Blues, on the other hand, are out for Premier League glory this season. The unbeaten visitors sit fourth in the standings on 10 points after four games, one point better than Tottenham. As Romelu Lukaku has been scoring goals for fun and N’Golo Kante is back, an away win cannot be ruled out.
Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
