Tottenham v Chelsea: Plenty at stake as rivals meet once more

| 04.01.2017

Any meeting between Tottenham and Chelsea is a heated affair, but tonight’s clash could be spectacular.

A record-breaking 14th successive Premier League win is on the cards for Chelsea.

But in a handy  twist of fate, to do so they’ll need  to see off a Tottenham side who will be going all out to ensure Antonio Conte’s men fail.

And for Spurs, they also know that a fifth successive victory would move them level with Manchester City in the top-four fight.

The bookies make the hosts slight favourites at 17/10, ahead of Chelsea at 9/5.

That price may reflect the fact that the Blues have won just once in their last 10 league trips to White Hart Lane.

And while these two sides boast the meanest defences in the Premier League, both teams have scored in three of the last four league clashes and 4/6 says it happens again.

With so much attacking display on show, surely we can’t see a repeat of last season’s 0-0?

Harry Kane has been in clinical mood since returning from injury, and the England international has eight goals in his last nine games.

Kane is 9/2 to net the opener, while Spurs will also be hoping Dele Alli maintains his recent form too.

The former MK Dons man has scored five in his last three games, and can be backed at 15/2 to score first and 12/5 anytime.

Diego Costa is the 4/1 favourite to break the deadlock in north London, and that’s sure to prove popular with the Spaniard already on 14 for the season.

And it’s no surprise that Chelsea’s success this term has also seen the rejuvenation of Eden Hazard.

The Belgian has scored nine times, and is 6/1 to net first and 2/1 anytime.

With all of that talent on show, and seven of the last nine meetings seeing three goals or more, over 2.5 goals at 10/11 looks assured.

Spurs gave Chelsea a hard time in the reverse fixture back in November, but now in much better form, can they be the ones to finally stop the rampant Blues?

Throughout the day we’re offering a range of price boosts for the big game, and you can find them here.
