Tip Reasoning

  • Chelsea are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions and have won each of their last six.
  • Tottenham have only won once at Stamford Bridge since 1990.
  • Chelsea beat Spurs home and away in the Premier League last season.
  • Tottenham have scored on six of their last seven visits to Stamford Bridge.

 Chelsea’s purple patch

Chelsea’s superb Autumn form continued in mid-week when the Blues booked their place in the Last 16 of the Champions League following a last gasp win in Rennes – a result that provided their 6th victory on the bounce in all competitions.

With their new faces starting to gel and a more balanced tactical formula finally settled upon, Chelsea have gone 10 games unbeaten in all competitions, however, a statement performance against a top opponent is required if the Blues are to silence all their doubters.

On Sunday, Frank Lampard has an opportunity to gag his remaining critics, when he takes on his former manager and mentor Jose Mourinho in Chelsea’s top of the table clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs on winning run

Tottenham produced a statement result rather than a statement performance last week when they fought their way to a 2-0 win over Man City in North London, despite racking up just four attempts on goal to the Citizens’ 22.

The victory allowed Spurs to claim the Premier League’s summit after game week nine of the season, and an understrength Tottenham kept the good results coming on Thursday with a comfortable 4-0 over Bulgarian outfit Ludogorets in the Europa League.

Mourinho’s men have now won seven of their last eight games in all competitions, though some of the performance behind their excellent Premier League results in particular, haven’t convinced.

Chelsea to harness home advantage

Chelsea have a superb home record against Tottenham Hotspur, and the Blues have lost just once to their counterparts from the capital at Stamford Bridge since 1990.

That excellent head-to-head record coupled with the Blues’ current winning streak along with the extra day’s rest they’ve had between games combine to give Chelsea a favourable set of circumstances to take advantage of this weekend, and the hosts look excellent value to claim three points as a result.

Liverpool, who played against 10 men for the entire second half, are the only team to have beaten Chelsea in the Blues’ last 13 games at Stamford Bridge in all competitions, and Frank Lampard’s charges look well positioned to harness home advantage again on Sunday.

In addition, Toby Alderweireld – who misses Sunday’s game through injury – is a huge loss for Spurs, who have built their backline around the consistent Belgian, and without his steady influence in defence, Chelsea should have more holes to exploit.

Alongside our home win forecast, a 2-1 correct score is also favoured for Sunday’s showpiece fixture. With Heung-min Son and Harry Kane in blistering form, Spurs are always worth a goal, though they might find plundering more than a single effort against a Chelsea defence carrying a record of six clean sheets in eight assignments difficult.

At the sharp end, the Blues scored exactly twice in home and away Premier League victories against Tottenham last season, and another brace should allow Chelsea and Lampard to get the job done against their former idol Mourinho.

Anytime goalscorer Tip: Timo Werner

German international Timo Werner has been missing some chances lately, though the rapid forward has been manufacturing some excellent openings for himself, and we expect him to rediscover his killer touch soon.

The ex-RB Leipzig star’s return of five goals from his last six Chelsea appearances is still a noteworthy haul however, and with Toby Alderweireld out for Tottenham, Werner should have opportunities to make his mark again.
