Match Preview

Our partners: 777Spinslot casino was created with the intention of offering superior gameplay, customer experience, and it presents a big range of no deposit slots from the best providers of the industry.

This is the first big game of the Premier League season. The two traditional bitter London rivals meet for a very hot derby at Wembley Stadium, which hosts the Spurs games this season, and there is no love lost between them. Their season start couldn't have been more different though, and that means that we can enjoy a great opportunity in football weekend predictions.

Tottenham started the season with a convincing 2-0 win at Newcastle United, with Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane all seemingly in good form. Their passing game is moving smoothly, and they are very confident of fighting for the title, after finishing as runners-up to Chelsea last term, as we state in our Tottenham vs Chelsea preview. Mauricio Pochettino is expected to field his first choice lineup.

On the other hand, Antonio Conte is in big trouble following the champions' 2-3 home defeat to Burnley on the opening day. Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas, who were sent off against the Clarets, are suspended, while Eden Hazard and new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko are injured. The atmosphere at the club is very difficult, as the manager fights with the owner demanding to strengthen the squad before the transfer window closes. One can sense unrest, and that makes the hosts clear favourites in our Tottenham vs Chelsea predictions.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Predictions and Betting Advice

Taking the circumstances into consideration, you can hardly find better soccer odds today. The hosts won against the Blues at home 2-0 last season thanks to two Dele Alli goals, and overall the visitors haven't beaten the Spurs away since 2012. They can hardly be expected to turn things around this time, and Pochettino has a golden opportunity to prove that his team are stronger than before. The odds are the best at Betway and stand at 2.05. Those are quite naturally our Tottenham vs Chelsea betting tips.
