Odds on Tottenham to beat Chelsea 2017-01-043rd January 2017 / lee
Here we go for potentially one of the biggest games of the season. Chelsea are looking to create history by landing their fourteenth straight win in the Premier League this season, but of course they have bigger goals than that of bringing the Premier League title back to Stamford Bridge. They are well on course and go into the game with a five point lead at the top of the table over Liverpool, who dropped points on the weekend in a draw with Sunderland. So there is a chance for Chelsea to extend their lead at the top of the table, but they are going to White Hart Lane where Tottenham have been in irresistible form.

Tottenham v Chelsea Betting Odds
Tottenham 7/4, Chelsea 9/5, Draw 23/10
Can Tottenham ruin Chelsea’s night? It is a massive Premier League clash and beyond the talk of Chelsea equalling both the Premier League and English top-flight record for successive wins (Arsenal – 14 wins between February 2002 and August 2002), there are precious Premier League points up for grabs. While Chelsea need them to stretch their legs out even further at the head of the pack if the Lilywhites go and collect them then they will climb up into the top four and that will give them a huge psychological boost.
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last three on home soil against Chelsea (W1 D2) and they are carrying some good form of their own at the moment. Tottenham have put together a four match winning streak at the Lane in the top flight and they will give Chelsea more than a good run for their money. When they went to Stamford Bridge back in November and lost 2-1, Spurs were the dominant side in the first half but just couldn’t sustain it after the break. But there were pointers there that they could build on to really throw down a challenge to the Champions elect.
Spurs have returned 18 goals in their last six league games and since that loss against Chelsea at the back end of November, which was their first league defeat of the 2016/17 season, Spurs have won five of their six games since. Tottenham remain unbeaten at home this season (W7 D2); and this is their longest unbeaten start to a PL season at home since 2000/01 (13 games). So they have form and they are going into the game as narrow favourites at a price of 7/4 with Paddy Power to claim three points.
This is the first Premier League fixture to be played 50 times and it’s a massive occasion. Even though Chelsea have won more Premier League games (26) and scored more Premier League goals (92) against Spurs than they have against any other opponent, Tottenham are going to have plenty of backers in this one. Harry Kane is going to play a big part in this one. He has netted 17 goals in his last 17 Premier League London derbies, including netting 10 in his last nine played at White Hart Lane. With him having had a big impact since his return from injury this season, he could be pivotal in getting Spurs the three points.
Kane is a price of 11/8 with Paddy Power in the anytime goalscorer market. Tottenham have won just one of their last 13 Premier League meetings with Chelsea (W1 D7 L5); but that win was a 5-3 victory recorded in their first league game of 2015. During the entire course of the 2016 calendar year Spurs lost just the two games on home soil in the league. That’s a fantastic record and this London derby is going to be full of intensity and passion and Tottenham are carrying the form to deny Chelsea’s shot at history.
This is a tough tough match for Chelsea and even though they saw off Man City at the Etihad in their toughest away game in their long winning streak, this is a different kettle of fish. A London derby against their bitter rivals. Tottenham are carrying some fantastic form and are producing in front of goal, so they could go out and land the three points, bringing Chelsea’s streak crashing down.
