Tottenham vs Chelsea – Chelsea’s miserable run to continue
Carlo Ancelotti may not be feeling the pressure just yet, but a loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday would make the following two ties against Arsenal and Man Utd must-win games.
Spurs have only lost four games at White Hart Lane since the beginning of 2009, only one of those was against a top four side (Manchester United), and Harry Redknapp’s side are on a high after qualifying top of their Champions League group.
Chelsea have won just one of their last six Premier League away games but still enter this game as the 6/4 favourites to beat Spurs.
Spurs offer plenty of value at 9/5 and Harry Redknapp’s side will take heart from their last four home ties with Chelsea which have finished 2-1, 1-0, 4-4 and 2-1.
Should Carlo Ancelotti be offered the point before the game he would take it and Spurs have drawn three of their eight home games this season – a draw is priced at 23/10.
Spurs’ long run of failing to keep a clean sheet has now stretched to 15 Premier League games, however Chelsea’s goalscoring form away from home has been poor with just seven goals in eight games.
This may be Spurs’ best chance for a clean sheet in a game which Chelsea are sure to want to keep tight considering Spurs goalscoring record, (13 in eight home league games), and Spurs are a big price at 12/5 to keep a clean sheet because they’re playing Chelsea.
A 1-0 win for either team is priced at 7/1 but as Spurs have proven this season that they’re mentality is to score more than they concede and the fans that pack into White Hart Lane could be in for a treat.
A 3-2 win for Spurs is priced at 25/1 but the 2-2 draw, priced at 14/1, seems the more likelier result.
