Tottenham v Chelsea Prediction, Preview & Odds – Premier League
We have a Tottenham v Chelsea prediction for you plus a breakdown of the odds, news and matchups ahead of this Monday’s Premier League clash.
Tottenham lead the way at the top of the table unbeaten from their opening ten league games and with twenty-six points accumulated. Another victory here would be a huge statement-maker early in the season.
Chelsea looked like they had turned the corner after winning two games on the spin but have since squandered a two-goal lead to draw with Arsenal 2-2 and lost 0-2 against Brentford last Saturday. They still aren’t where they would like to be as a club but a win against London rivals Spurs would change the mood at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham v Chelsea Preview
Tottenham have been brilliant this season despite the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich.
Ange Postecoglou has transformed the fortunes of this side which finished 8th last season in the Premier League. They currently sit top of the table after an unbeaten start with eight wins and two draws from their opening ten games.
Spurs last time out earned a hard-fought victory, 1-2 over Crystal Palace. Despite dominating the ball they struggled to create chances with an XG of just 1.12 created compared to their opponent’s 0.61. However, an own-goal from Joel Ward and a Son finish was enough to give them the victory.
Before the Palace game, Spurs had a comfortable 2-0 victory against another London rival. That time it was Fulham when goals from Son again and Maddison gave them the win.
While they’re currently top of the table, unbeaten from their first ten games their Expected Points would have them 5th. That suggests that this level of results isn’t sustainable long-term. Nevertheless, Tottenham won’t care, if they can win on Monday Night they will ensure they stay on top of the table for at least another week.

Tottenham 2-1 Liverpool | September 30th | Win
Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham | September 24th | Draw
4 Wins and 1 Draw
Chelsea are yet to find some sort of stability this season, often taking two steps forward before taking another two back. The Blues currently occupy 11th place in the table with three wins, three draws and four defeats from their opening ten league games.
Last weekend, Chelsea succumbed to their fourth league defeat of the season. They lost at Stamford Bridge, which is usually a fortress for them, 0-2 against Brentford after goals from Pinnock and Mbeumbo. You could argue it was a harsh result though with Chelsea having 69% of the ball and creating a marginally lower XG of 2.03 to Brentford’s 2.16.
While Chelsea lie in 11th, their Expected Points would have them in 6th place and only one place below actual league leaders Tottenham. This would suggest that their results on the field are likely to improve sooner rather than later and that there is little separating these two sides ahead of Monday night.

Chelsea have had the better of this fixture in the last couple of years with 3 wins compared to Tottenham’s 1 win in the last five meetings between these teams. There has also been one draw over that period.
Coming into the game, between both teams there has been an average of 2.63 Goals Per Match this season which is less than the league average of 3.03.
Both sides average 13.50 Corners Per Match which is higher than the league average of 10.71.
Key Players To Watch
Heung Min Son – Tottenham
With the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, not only was Son (31) tasked with fulfilling the leadership void by taking the captaincy, but arguably most importantly making up for the goals lost.
Son has aptly delivered this season so far with eight goals and one assist from his opening ten league appearances.
Enzo Fernandez – Chelsea
Chelsea have made plenty of questionable signings in recent seasons. However, the acquisition of Enzo from Benfica looks to be a crucial component of any future success the club may have.
Enzo is a hugely creative force ranking in the 98th Percentile for Progressive Passes with 9.90 Per 90. The 98th Percentile for Passes Attempted with 81.08 Per 90 and his 3.45 Shot Creating Actions Per 90 in the 85th Percentile.
Tottenham v Chelsea Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Tottenham 1-2 Chelsea
Tottenham are flying, they’ve yet to lose a match and another result in this game would extend their early-season statement under Ange.
Chelsea still hasn’t found their gears under Poch, although statistically their performances have them only one place below Tottenham in the Expected Points table. The absence of a goal-scorer is hurting them.
This is a tighter game than plenty would think. Something tells me that Chelsea can pull off a result here.
Best Bet: Under 3.5 Goals and Chelsea Win @ 10/3
