Chelsea v Tottenham: Spurs’ shocking record at the Bridge to show

| 03.12.2014

They may have failed to score for the first time of the season against Sunderland, but Jose Mourinho’s league leaders are certainly not on the wane and will test Tottenham’s mettle when they come out west.

Despite dropping two points at the Stadium of Light, Chelsea still maintain their six point lead at the top of the table, and already look like they will be hard to peg back in their quest for the title.

Spurs meanwhile are enjoying a purple patch, winning six of their last seven games, after going through an inconsistent period in September.

The Lilywhites are 7/1 to come away from the Bridge with a shock three points, 15/4 to claim a draw, or 2/5 to be just another team that Chelsea flick away.

Here are our three best bets for the action.

Both teams to score and Chelsea to win @ 11/5

With three draws in their last six away games, Chelsea are a less ferocious animal out of the confines of Stamford Bridge, so a return to their own patch, where they have won their last six games in all competitions and all six in the Premier League.

They also have a hold on Spurs when they make their way across the capital. Tottenham haven’t won away against the Blues in 14 years, a whopping 26 matches.

But with Mauricio Pochettino’s side finding the net in every outing away from White Hart Lane this season, they should be backed to pick up a consolation goal or two.

Highest scoring half – 2nd @ 11/10

This one is for the lovers of trends and the seekers of value.

Chelsea have scored 61% of their goals in matches at Stamford Bridge in the second half, the same percentage of goals Spurs have scored away from home after the break.

What’s more, this bet would have come in for eight of Chelsea’s 13 Premier League matches this term, and seven of Tottenham’s 13.

So at odds-against, it looks great value, simple!

Eden Hazard to score anytime @ 7/5

There must be something about his own fans that allow the Belgian to deliver in west London.

He’s found the net in the last four matches at home in all competitions, with all his strikes coming on familiar territory.

Through in that he was on the scoresheet in the Blues’ 4-0 win in this fixture last season and he looks a good bet.
