Tottenham vs Chelsea Ultimate Bet Builder
Tottenham to win
Tottenham are the only unbeaten side left standing in the Premier League this term and they won’t want to surrender that against their local rivals. Ange Postecoglou has been able to impressively gameplan for opponents with Spurs only focusing on the league this term and they have had nine days to prepare for this one.
Chelsea have shown flashes of improvement under Mauricio Pochettino, but they were beaten 2-0 at home to Brentford last term and look set to fall short against their rivals.
Heung Min Son to score anytime
Son has enjoyed a fantastic season for Spurs as their new central striker, having found the net in three straight games for club and country. The South Korean has scored eight times across his 10 Premier League appearances, so back him to trouble the Blues.
If you see Son – or anyone else for that matter – finding the net in this one, and you don’t yet have a Betfair account, consider their 30/1 offer for a goal to be scored in this contest too.
Cole Palmer 1+ shots on target
Chelsea’s scattergun transfer policy and huge squad turnover are yet to really pay off, but one of the few bright spots has been Cole Palmer. He looked like a desperate signing late in the window, but the former Man City winger has brought an entirely new dimension to their attack.
Palmer has been making key contributions since forcing his way into the first team, starting each of their last six games. He’s had a shot on target in four of those matches, getting five shots on target in during that run. Back him to trouble Vicario on Monday.
Yves Bissouma to be carded
Tottenham midfielder Bissouma returned from suspension in their 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace, but he could quickly return to card trouble. With six bookings in his last seven games for Spurs – including cards in their last two at home – expect his name to be taken in what is usually a fiery clash.
Nicolas Jackson to be carded
Chelsea’s Nicolas Jackson talked his way into a suspension early this term, with frequent bookings for dissent resulting in a ban. The forward is back in the starting lineup, but with five bookings in nine league games, he’s always at risk of a card.
Jackson is likely to be isolated against a dominant Spurs side, while the atmosphere of this derby clash could get the 22-year-old into trouble. Back him for another card on Monday night.
