Why you should back Tottenham
Spurs are fighting for their place atop the table, and they are in much better form than the Blues. After this weekend’s results, Tottenham are the only remaining unbeaten team in the Premier League. They also will be the much fresher team, with the Blues playing two matches since Spurs’ Friday matchup in Matchweek 10. Spurs have scored 22 goals and conceded nine, both among the best in the EPL. They have yielded just two goals on their home turf, and Chelsea have 13 goals in 10 matches.
South Korean Son Heung-Min has taken the torch from Harry Kane and is tied for second in the league in goals. He shared the league lead with 23 goals in 2021-22 before fading to 10 last season. Now he appears healthy and motivated, and James Maddison has been setting him up for success. The former Leicester City midfielder has three goals and five assists. Spurs lead the league in shots with 178, which is 42 more than Chelsea. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Chelsea
The Blues are 9-2-2 in the past 13 meetings in all competitions, with a 20-5 advantage in goals over that span. They are starting to find some goals this season, scoring at least two in four of their past five matches. Raheem Sterling scored his second in his past nine games in Wednesday’s victory. That result moved them into the EFL Cup quarterfinals, and the Blues still have a winning pedigree. They are 4-1-1 in their past six in all competitions and have been a dangerous but inconsistent side so far.
They held 64% possession and outshot Blackburn 22-7 on Wednesday, and that victory should give them confidence. In the loss to Brentford, they held possession for 69% of the match and had a 17-7 shot advantage. Chelsea have allowed 35 shots on net, tied for fourth-fewest in the EPL.
