A frustrated Chelsea London side host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in an attempt to return to winning ways and stop dropping points. Tottenham are pushing for European football, but Chelsea were held to a goaless draw during the weekend, something that was not in their plans which is why they will compensate with goals now.
Chelsea will be without Diego Costa seeing as the player conveniently got a booking after two separate incidents with Sunderland’s defenders. Mourinho has options for that area, and you should expect either Drogba or Remy to start instead of the Brazil-born now a Spanish international. The draw against Sunderland marked Chelsea’s 13th match without losing and with Fabregas’ help they intend to extend said run. Tottenham have an unbeaten run of three matches, the latest win is against Everton, and the three points pushed the Spurs to the 7th place in the table.
Last season at Stamford Bridge Tottenham lost with 4-0 and while they will do their best to avoid another result like that, a defeat is in the cards for them. Chelsea are fresh from destroying Schalke 04 with 5-0, and if Pochettino rotates his squad expect at least half the goals. Soldado remembered he is a striker and scored against Everton, which is why Ladbrokes gives him and Adebayor 4.33 odds to score anytime. Against the Spurs is the fact that they have not won at Stamford Bridge since the 90’s, Ladbrokes 1.40 odds for a Chelsea win make sense.
Tottenham got 8.00 odds to win, and another 4-0 Chelsea win has 15.00 odds. Both Drogba and Remy have 2.00 odds to score while Schürrle and Hazard have 2.40 odds to score anytime. Chelsea with a -1 handicap has 2.05 odds, Tottenham with a +2.0 one 1.66 and we’re betting 8 units on the second half with most goals with 2.10 odds from Ladbrokes.
