Hosts Chelsea find themselves top of the Premier League table with 28 points from a possible 36, coming off the back of six consecutive wins ahead of Saturday’s clash and will stay top with any victory. Antonio Conte’s side have been particularly impressive on home soil too, boasting the best home form in the division – five wins from six games at Stamford Bridge- and will fancy their chances against a Tottenham side struggling for results in recent weeks. Chelsea are 4/5 with William Hill to win against Tottenham Hotspur.
As for the visitors, Tottenham are currently fifth in the Premier League with 24 points, having won six and drawn six this season. The Lilywhites are still unbeaten in the top-flight in 2016/17, but they have been struggling with wins of late which could see them coming unstuck at Stamford Bridge. Spurs have failed to win seven of their last eight games in all competitions ahead of Saturday’s meeting, while scoring one or less goals in the seven outings too prior to facing a Chelsea defence boasting six consecutive clean sheets.
Tottenham are 41/10 with 888 Sport to win against Chelsea but Mauricio Pochettino’s men might be going another season without a win at the Bridge.
