*Odds correct as of 07.00 on November 05
Mauricio Pochettino returns to Tottenham for the first time since his departure in November 2019, but there is a new darling for the Lilywhites. Ange Postecoglou has Tottenham thriving, having arrived with an air of uncertainty. The Australian enjoyed a lot of success with Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, but there was some caution as to how he would fare in the Premier League, especially having to deal with the departure of Harry Kane. Tottenham are the only unbeaten team left in the Premier League this season, with eight wins and two draws from their opening 10 matches after Arsenal’s controversial defeat to Newcastle on Saturday.
Big Ange has made the best ever start by a Premier League manager in his first 10 games in charge (26 points) and is looking to become just the third manager in Premier League history to avoid defeat in his first 11 after Frank Clark (1994) and Maurizio Sarri (2018).
Chelsea, meanwhile, have had a slow start under Pochettino. The Blues lost three of their opening six games with two draws and just one win, beating struggling Luton Town. Following a 1-0 defeat to Aston Vila, the Blues put in a four-game mini-unbeaten run across all competitions but then fell to a 2-0 defeat at home to Brentford that leaves them 12th in the table.
The Blues have lost 15 Premier League games in 2023, only one fewer than they lost in 2021 and 2022 combined (16).However, only Manchester United (15) have won more Premier League away games against Tottenham than Chelsea (14), with the West London side having scored more away goals against Spurs in the competition than any other side (51).

Tottenham vs Chelsea match tip
Chelsea have shown signs of promise of late, but they ultimately dropped two points in their draw with Arsenal before falling to defeat against Brentford. The Arsenal match was yet another struggle for the Blues against teams in the top half of the table. Chelsea are currently without a win in their last 26 games against teams in the top half of the Premier League, not including a win over Everton on the opening day of the 2022/23 season when the Toffees were in the top half alphabetically before a ball was kicked.
Tottenham vs Chelsea Bet-Builder tip
After suffering in front of goal, Chelsea have now scored 11 goals in their past six matches across all competitions, including six in their past two away games. However, they will have a hard task stopping Son Heung-min, who has eight goals in the Premier League so far this season — the second-highest scorer in the division after Erling Haaland (11).
The South Korean has scored multiple goals against every other ‘Big Six’ side in the Premier League and needs just one more goal to make it 30 goal involvements against them in the competition.

|Rodrigo Bentancur||Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon, Alfie Whiteman||Destiny Udogie|
Tottenham will still be without trio Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon and Ryan Sessegnon when Chelsea come to visit, while doubts remain over full-backs Destiny Udogie and Ben Davies, so Emerson Royal could start at LB. Rodrigo Bentancur came on in the final moments of Tottenham’s win over Palace last time out and should be ready for more extended minutes.
Ange Postecoglou’s biggest decision is whether to stick with Richarlison the left-wing role or bring in Brennan Johnson, who came on to provide his first Premier League assist for Tottenham last time out against Crystal Palace.
