There is no doubt about what the biggest game of the Premier League weekend is going to be. The Wembley clash between Tottenham and Chelsea is where it is at on Sunday evening for this London derby. Tottenham and Chelsea met three times last season, with the two of them trading home victories in the Premier League before Chelsea took the edge in a 4-2 win at Wembley in the FA Cup semi final against the Lilywhites.
In that victory, Blues boss Antonio Conte gambled by leaving some of his star players on the bench. This time as he leads the Blues back to Wembley for this Premier League match up, he doesn’t have much of a choice about leaving out key players. Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas are both suspended after their red cards in Chelsea’s defeat against Burnley last weekend, plus the injuries are stacking up for the Blues.
The likes of Eden Hazard and Pedro are battling for fitness, while Alvaro Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko are just flat out short of fitness. But Conte may have to throw midfielder Bakayoko, who missed all of pre-season, into action in this one because he is so short of players. So Chelsea won’t be fielding a full strength side at all in this one and they are trading as underdogs to claim the three points, especially after losing at home against Burnley last weekend.
Spurs were fluent and comfortable in a 2-0 win on Tyneside against Newcastle last weekend and even though this isn’t technically at home for them (they are residing there temporarily while White Hart Lane gets a facelift), they have gone unbeaten in their last four at home against the Blues in the Premier League with a W2 D2 record. They are 11/10 at Coral to win this, with Chelsea drifting badly at 5/2. How Spurs would love to extend that record and they have to see the chance in front of them to boost their own momentum while keeping the reigning champions down.
