Tottenham and Chelsea will play against each other on Saturday, in a battle for the top. Currently, one point separates the two London sides, which stand respectively on 3rd and 4th place.
A lot of punters back Tottenham as the hidden favourite for the title in England. Although The Spurs didn’t bring in new players in the summer, Mauricio Pochetino’s side recorded their best start of the season in the Premier League, with 27 points in twelve games. Tottenham is the best away team since the start of the season, but at home disappointed and lost against Liverpool and Manchester City.
Chelsea is the only team from the Premier League that is undefeated since the start of the season. The Blues are getting better with every game and progressively improve their performance in attack and defence. In the away games Chelsea have four wins and one draw, conceding just once.
Bookies give an equal odds for both sides. The Spurs may have recorded their best Premier League start but lost the big games against the title favourites. At the same time, Chelsea defeated Arsenal and drew with Liverpool. Even though these games were played at Stamford Bridge, The Blues are my favourite on Saturday and with their away record have a more significant chance to grab the three points. I will back Chelsea 0.0 Asian Handicap, with Chelsea 2-1 Correct Score.
