Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea Preview, Premiership, Saturday 28th September 2013

Tottenham Hotspur cruised through their 3rd round Capital One League Cup match against Aston Villa midweek with a 4-0 victory at Villa Park and confidence at the club is at an all time high having had a very good start to the new season.

Lewis Holtby and Jermain Defoe, who were instrumental in that victory midweek are unlikely to feature in this game and will probably make way for Soldado and Eriksen, but it surely has to be a matter of time before these two players are given a chance to impress their manager in a league match this season.

Chelsea struggled to beat League One side Swindon Town 2-0 in their Capital One League Cup match midweek and it certainly seems like something is still missing from the team this season as despite winning that game, Jose Mourinho’s side have found it difficult in recent weeks to replicate the kind of football we all saw from them last season under the guidance of Rafa Benitez.

Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea Team News

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

Manager Villas-Boas has pretty much a full strength squad to choose his starting eleven from for this game with the only player definitely missing at the moment being Etienne Capoue who is suffering from a Malleolar injury.

Fans will be demanding that Jermain Defoe gets his chance to lead the line up front alongside Soldado having scored two goals again midweek as it really does make sense to play the strikers that are scoring goals in what is a very important game for Spurs.

Chelsea Team News:

Jose Mourinho also has nearly a fully fit squad to choose his starting lineup from with the only player missing being Tomas Kalas who is out until at least December with a fractured tibula.

This will be an important game for Chelsea fans to win and with Fernando Torres having re-discovered his scoring form maybe he could be the answer to lead the attack up front saturday afternoon ?

Tottenham Hotspur will head into this game on saturday lunch time with a commanding advantage on the recent form statistics having managed to win 4 from their last 5 matches played. Chelsea have struggled having managed to win just 2 of their last 5 played.

Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea Match Betting Odds Market.

Tottenham Hotspur are enjoying a very good start to their new season and with a number of new signings the fans are hopeful that their side can deliver some trophies after some very good results, so no real shock to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up as the favourites to win this game on saturday afternoon with a best of 17/10 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) currently available.

The Draw has been a regular result between these two clubs over recent years with three of the last five matches having finished all square, so I can certainly see some punters getting on at odds of 23/10 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Chelsea have not had a great start to their new season, but have turned things around in their last two games and having dominated this fixture for so long you certainly can’t rule them out of winning this game at a best price of 9/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) which does look value considering their record over Spurs in recent years.

Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This is the sort of game that could make or break either sides hopes of winning the Premiership League Title this season, both sides have already lost one game so far and another defeat at this early stage would obviously make things a lot more difficult.

Chelsea have dominated this fixture for many years and although they don’t seem to be playing anywhere near the standard of football we saw from them last season they will still fancy their chances of winning this game on saturday afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur have a real chance to put behind them a miserable decade of results against Chelsea and with the new players that have been brought into the side this season I can’t honestly see them having a better chance to do so than on saturday afternoon.

The goal stats suggest at least a couple of goals to be scored during this game, but with both sides having only conceded 3 times between them so far this season it does seem unlikely that anymore than 2 goals if at all will be scored during this one, so such markets like Both Teams to Score, Under 2.5 Goals and Time of First Goal Scored could represent value.
