Chelsea News and Form
Chelsea stepped away from League action on the weekend because they were involved in the EFL cup final against Manchester City. Chelsea lost on penalties after a 0-0 draw. During the match goalkeeper, Kepa refused to be substituted so it will be interesting to see if he gets dropped.
Heading into the midweek action Chelsea are sat in sixth place in the Premier League, in a big fight with Arsenal and Manchester United for a top four finish. The home form of Chelsea makes for some pretty good reading because at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are W8 D4 L1 this season in the Premier League.
The Blues are undefeated in their last three Premier League home games, taking back-to-back wins over Newcastle and Huddersfield. However, Chelsea have lost three of their last four Premier League games without having found the back of the net. Goalscoring has become a bit of a problem for them against higher quality teams.
Chelsea have only taken one clean sheet in their last five games, home and away. Chelsea have averaged exactly 2 goals per home game in the top flight this season, shipping only the nine goals in 13 fixtures. Chelsea have earned a clean sheet in 46% of home games. They have yet to be trailing at the halftime break in any home League fixture this term.
Chelsea v Tottenham Head to Head
Spurs earned a 3-1 home League win over Chelsea in November
Tottenham are W2 L1 in three against the Blues this season
Spurs snapped a long winless streak at Stamford Bridge in the League last season

Tottenham News and Form
Tottenham had a setback in their Premier League title ambitions over the weekend. With Manchester City not playing, Spurs had a big chance to put some pressure on. However, they suffered a 2-1 defeat away at Burnley. Harry Kane made his return from injury in that game and immediately got on the scoresheet.
The away defeat at Burnley snapped a four-match winning streak Spurs were on away from home in the top flight. But still, their away record is very strong this season as they are at W11 L3 on their travels. Home and away Spurs were on a four-match winning streak in the top flight before that weekend defeat at Burnley.
Spurs have done just fine in front of goal away from home this season. Tottenham have averaged 2.2 goals per away fixture. Of their away games 71% have ended up finishing over 2.5 goals, including each of their last four. When Chelsea paid a visit to Spurs earlier this season, Tottenham absolutely destroyed their London rivals.
Spurs need that kind of performance to get themselves going again after that result on the weekend. This is probably a good time to be catching Chelsea who are in a bit of disarray. Spurs have scored in all away games played this season and have been ahead at the halftime break in nine of those games. They have conceded 73% of their away goals in the second period of away fixtures and Spurs have opened the scoring in all but four of their road games.
Chelsea v Tottenham Predictions
Tottenham to win: there are fractures in the Chelsea camp and that’s pretty clear to see. Even though their League home form is solid enough, Tottenham have the creativity and quality to go to Stamford bridge and claim three points.
