Chelsea: WWDDW

The first game on this weekend’s Sunday schedule will see the Premier League’s most in-form team take on a Chelsea side languishing in the bottom half of the table.

Tottenham top of the form table

Over the last eight matches, no team has amassed more points in the Barclays Premier League than Tottenham Hotspur. During that spell, the North London side has secured 18 points from a possible 21 and they have not been beaten since the opening day of the season when they fell 1-0 at Old Trafford.

In their most recent game, they defeated fellow Londoners West Ham United by four goals to one at White Hart Lane and will welcome another club from the capital to their home arena this weekend.

As a result of their good form, Spurs are sat comfortably in fifth place in the table just four points behind leaders Leicester City.

Nabil Bentaleb has a foot injury and remains a doubt for this game, while Nacer Chadli is still a week or two away from fitness.

Chelsea still out of sorts

After three straight defeats, Chelsea got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Norwich. It may not have been an emphatic win for Jose Mourinho’s team but it was three points nonetheless, and right now the Blues need all the points they can get.

The win lifted the Londoners above Norwich in the table but they are still just five points clear of the drop zone. This weekend they will make the short trip across London to face the best team in the league over the last eight games.

The Blues are expected to be be without veteran defender John Terry who is suffering from a knock. He will join Ramires, Radamel Falcao and Thibaut Courtois in the sick room.


Mauricio Pochettino’s men are unbeaten at home and have won four of their last five at the Lane. In contrast, Chelsea have lost three of their last four games away from home, with their last win on the road coming at West Brom back in August. The home win is available at 6/4 with Betfair.

Spurs striker Harry Kane has scored seven league goals in the last month to take his tally for the season to eight. The England international can be backed at 13/8 with Betfair to score anytime.
