Chelsea’s last visit to Tottenham ended in a 1-1 draw.
Chelsea heads into this London derby with three wins, a draw and a single loss on record for their last five matches. While the Blues have been in decent form, their draw against Wigan on the weekend was a big slip, and left them 7 points off the pace at the top of the Premiership table.
Chelsea has put away 9 goals in its last five matches. Defence has also been putting in some strong performances with just 4 goals conceded during the same period.
Meanwhile, Tottenham has taken three wins and two defeats from its last five matches. The Spurs bounced back from their defeat last weekend against Stoke with consecutive away wins against Shamrock Rovers and Sunderland.
The Spurs have put away 12 goals in their last five matches. Defence has been workmanlike, conceding 5 goals during the same period and keeping two clean sheets.
The momentum should be with the Spurs in this one, but Chelsea will be a very dangerous opponent come Thursday. This is a watershed moment for the Blues and they’ll throw everything they have at the Spurs.
Nevertheless, the head-to-head record between these sides, home advantage, as well as form, suggest that Tottenham should win this if the match produces a result.
