The stats behind our Chelsea vs Tottenham predictions:

  • Both teams have scored in four of Chelsea’s previous five Premier League home games.
  • Chelsea won seven of their last nine Premier League home games (five by a one-goal margin).
  • Chelsea opened the scoring in their last nine Premier League home games.

Palmer chasing history

To say Tottenham are not in the best form away from home is an understatement. They’ve lost two of their last three Premier League away games (one draw), as many as they had in their previous 14 (seven wins and five draws). They’ve failed to score in both defeats, having only failed to score in two of their last 34 away league matches.

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino could become the first manager to complete a Premier League double over the Spurs, having previously managed them in the competition. That earlier success was an incredible 1-4 victory, which saw Tottenham end the game with nine men. Among those sent off was Romero, whose dismissal came with Tottenham leading 1-0.

That November evening, Cole Palmer stepped up to equalise for the Blues, and they never looked back. That strike was Palmer’s third in the league for Chelsea, and he’s added 17 since, with a recent bulk coming at home.

The former Manchester City academy graduate has scored in his last seven Premier League home games, netting 13 goals in total in this run – it’s the longest scoring streak by a Chelsea player at Stamford Bridge in the competition’s history.

Furthermore, the England international has scored a hat-trick in his last two Premier League home games, netting three against Manchester United and four against Everton. The only player in the competition’s history to score 3+ goals in three consecutive home games was Erling Haaland last season.
