Tottenham vs Chelsea: Predictions
Tottenham have only picked up two wins in their last nine Premier League games, which is a stark contrast to their form in the opening few months of the 2020/21 campaign which saw Spurs rival Liverpool at the top of the table until December when their drop in form began.
Following a slow start to the season, Chelsea acted and replaced manager Frank Lampard with former-PSG coach Thomas Tuchel. In the two league games since Tuchel took charge, Chelsea shared the points at home to Wolves and the German secured his first victory against Burnley in a 2-0 win through goals from defenders Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.
Spurs will be without their talisman Harry Kane again and their game on Sunday away to a struggling Brighton will not fill their fans with confidence as the lacklustre Londoners were handed a deserved 1-0 defeat. Without Kane, Spurs failed to impress going forward and there were defensive issues in abundance.
Tuchel will be hoping he can bring the best out of his fellow countryman Timo Werner with the German only returning four goals in the Premier League following his big-money move from RB Leipzig in the summer.
Tottenham vs Chelsea: Match Stats
Spurs beat Chelsea on penalties at home earlier in the season in the Carabao Cup, however, in their only league meeting at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it was the Blues which sealed all three points in a 2-0 win. Tuchel has faced Spurs before during his time at Borussia Dortmund and the German enjoyed two wins over the Londoners.
Despite not finding the back of the net, Werner registered three shots on target against Burnley. Spurs have suffered from defensive issues this season and the German is likely to get his opportunity to add to his goal tally against what looks a frail Spurs backline.
