Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea will conclude the Premier League weekend with an enticing London derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Monday night.
Spurs continued their impressive start to the season with a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace last Friday, a result that also aligned with my pick at Selhurst Park. This latest triumph solidifies Ange Postecoglou’s team as one of only two unbeaten sides in the top-flight this season.
Returning to their North London home on Monday night, Tottenham aims to maintain their position at the top of the table by overcoming city rivals Chelsea. However, just when the Blues seemed to be finding their footing after a slow start to the season, they were humbled with a 2-0 home defeat to Brentford last Saturday.
As a result, Mauricio Pochettino faces his former club with Chelsea currently sitting in 11th place in the Premier League standings.
In terms of outright betting, Tottenham is the 11/10 favourite to secure a fifth consecutive home win in the Premier League. Chelsea, who have only won three of their ten top-flight matches this season, are the 5/2 outsiders with Bet365.
Even money bet builder includes Tottenham scoring and both Yves Bissouma and Moisés Caicedo committing fouls.
The high-flying Spurs have found the back of the net in all ten of their Premier League matches this season, and they should continue their scoring streak against a Chelsea side that appears defensively vulnerable.
Chelsea, despite their significant investments, have managed just three clean sheets in ten top-flight games this season, with those shutouts coming against relatively weaker teams like Luton, Bournemouth, and Fulham.
