Spurs' dreadful record at the Bridge in the Premier League could continue this weekend.
Chelsea v Spurs - Saturday 17:30, BT Sport 1
Chelsea enter this game in fantastic form having won each of their last six matches, scoring 17 and conceding none, and as a result sit top of the table with the best goal difference in the league. Five of these victories have been by a margin of at least two goals, and with 10 strikes in Chelsea’s 12 matches this season, we think Diego Costa to score anytime is worth a punt at 2.06.
Spurs managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat last week against West Ham with two late goals from Harry Kane, ending a run of four consecutive draws that saw Mauricio Pochettino’s side drop out of the top four. They do however remain the only unbeaten side this season, and their match against the Hammers was the first time they’ve conceded more than once. They are the only side with a better defensive record than Chelsea, however regular starters Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are both absent.
Spurs haven’t beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge during the Premier League era, conceding at least twice in six of the last seven, and have only managed to emerge triumphant once in their last 12 encounters in both home and away fixtures. In all competitions, Spurs have won just once in their last nine matches so we’re backing Chelsea to extend their impressive run with another win to nil at 3.1.
