Tottenham vs Chelsea PredictionA blockbuster Premier League encounter awaits us at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday evening when Tottenham Hotspur entertain Chelsea in what is expected to be an enthralling match-up in North London.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 18
Kick-off:
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London)

Tottenham endured a difficult start to their Premier League campaign, alternating between wins and draws as their season never really got going. Former manager Mauricio Pochettino was eventually given the boot out of the club as he failed to bring consistency to the table.

The appointment of Jose Mourinho at the North London club has looked a smart move so far, as they have admitted defeat only once since the Portuguese gaffer took over the reins. The singular loss came at the dreaded Old Trafford against an in-form Manchester United side.

The hosts will head into this game with their sights fixated on all three points, knowing fully well that a win in this fixture will see them leapfrog the Blues into fourth-place.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Team News

Tottenham are on a stellar two-game winning streak in the league, having registered back-to-back wins for the second time under Jose Mourinho on the last match-day. They were made to scrap really hard for the win last time out on the road against Wolves.

Having taken the lead very early in the game through a sublime effort from Lucas Moura, the Lilywhites looked on course for another routine comfortable victory at the Molineux Stadium. However, pacey forward Adama Traore pegged the visitors back with a well-taken goal.

Both sides seemed to be in line for no more than a share of the spoils not until very late in the game. As Jose Mourinho was about heading into the tunnel in distress, Jan Vertonghen turned savior for the Portuguese.

The center-back got on the end of a sublime cross, heading the ball home to clinch maximum points for his side. With twenty-six points from seventeen games, the home side have gotten themselves back into the elite top-five club.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have hit a sharp decline in form following their exploits at the start of the campaign. Even the clinical Tammy Abraham has hit a stumbling block, with some pundits claiming the England international flattered to deceive earlier in the season.

Still in the Premier League top-four fray, Frank Lampard’s side are winless in their last three outings across all competitions. Going on, the Blues have been at the losing end in their last two meetings with this foe on this ground.

They were shockingly awful on the last match-day, losing 1-0 to a struggling Bournemouth side to pile on the misery at Stamford Bridge. 
Meanwhile, the Lilywhites have been high-flying so far in the league and have not admitted a single defeat on home turf in the Premier League, since late August. Taking their impressive run of form in recent weeks, Chelsea’s chances of pulling off a win here seems very unlikely.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Predictions

Tottenham are on a roll and seem unstoppable in their bid to return to the Premier League top-four mix. As such, they will be bent on securing maximum points against Frank Lampard’s below-par side. With home advantage under the belt, they are favourites to edge this one out.

However, Chelsea are not likely to go down without a fight. The Blues are determined to end their dismal losing streak in the league and as such will be determined to give the hosts a game here.

Expect a very entertaining game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with both sides going all out for the win. The safest punt will be backing the home side for a narrow-margin victory.
