On Monday, of course, the betting offer is not as good as it was over the weekend but this day brings us a very interesting match in London, where city rivals Tottenham and Chelsea will measure their strength. The start of the match between these two teams is scheduled for 9 pm
Tottenham: Few expected such good performances!
After the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, everyone expected Tottenham to play a minor role in the top tier of English football and to struggle for a position that brings qualification to one of the European competitions at the end of the season. We remind you that the team from London had a disastrous season, and in the end, this team only managed to secure the eighth position in the table, which few could have predicted at the beginning of the championship.
Besides the departure of Kane, the Spurs also welcomed a new coach, as Angelos Postecoglou took over the managerial role at the London club after two extremely successful seasons at Celtic, and as time passes, it seems that this was a great move by the club’s executives. Indeed, before this round, the former Champions League finalists were at the top of the table with a two-point lead over Arsenal and Manchester City, and three points more than Liverpool. So far, Tottenham has played ten matches in the top flight of English football and achieved eight victories with only two draws.
In the previous round, Angelos Postecoglou’s men triumphed in a very tough away game at Crystal Palace, where it ended 1-2, with all the goals interestingly coming in the second half of the match. Before that, Tottenham easily overcame Fulham at home with a 2-0 victory, and the only two matches where the Spurs failed to win were in the first round away at Brentford, and recently away at Arsenal, interestingly both ending with a 2-2 score. At home, the Spurs have played four matches and achieved as many victories, including two very important wins against Liverpool and Manchester United, especially considering that in recent years Tottenham has rarely won in encounters against the biggest English teams. Finally, for this clash against Chelsea, Postecoglou will not be able to count on Perišić, Solomon, Sessegnon, and Whitman, while Udogie and Davies are doubtful.
Chelsea: Can the Blues somehow secure a Champions League spot?
Despite huge investments and several truly unreal transfers, Chelsea’s team finished last season in a disastrous twelfth place on the table, meaning that we will not see this team, like Tottenham, in any European competitions this season. Before the start of this championship, there were again several high-profile reinforcements, led by the signing of Caicedo from Brighton in a transfer worth an incredible 132 million euros. The core of last season’s team was retained, and when all the new signings are added to this, the least that could be expected from the popular Blues was a fight for the English Premier League title.
However, once again the former European champions are having a lot of problems in this year’s edition of the Premier League, and the best indicator of this is the currently catastrophic eleventh place in the table with twelve points, which is currently eleven points less compared to the teams that are in a position that brings Champions League qualification at the end of the championship. So far, Mauricio Pochettino’s charges have played ten league matches and achieved only three victories, as many draws, but also four defeats. Just when we all thought that the popular Blues had found their form, since the team had tied two away victories against Fulham and Burnley, as well as a draw against this season’s excellent Arsenal, there was a defeat in the last round at home against Brentford, and that duel ended with a 0:2 score.
In the first part of the game, the home team missed several incredible opportunities to score, and Brentford knew how to punish this and ultimately secure very important three points, which will mean a lot to this team, especially after not the best start to the championship. On their travels so far, Mauricio Pochettino’s side has played four away matches, achieving two victories, one draw, and one defeat, so we can safely say that the Blues play better away than at their own ground, where Chelsea has so far secured only one victory, two draws, and as many as three losses. Finally, for this clash, Pochettino will not be able to count on Nkunku, Chilwell, Chukwuemeka, Chalobah, Fofana, and Lavia, while Mudryk, Broja, and Bettinelli are doubtful.
Our Betting Suggestions
At first glance, it appears to be a very difficult match to predict, however, when we consider everything we have seen from both teams during the course of the championship so far, it seems that Tottenham is indeed the big favorite, so we boldly recommend playing a home win (1) for which the bookmaker Mozzartbet has prepared a coefficient of 2.35.
Chelsea has been playing quite well away from home lately, which of course does not mean that the Blues will triumphantly return from this visit, but it seems that the least we can expect from Pochettino’s men is at least one goal scored, so we advise you to focus on the both teams to score (GG) bet at 1.55.
Finally, it’s not out of the question that this duel between the two city rivals will bring a lot of goals, with the note that the home team will not lose this duel, so it’s best to try with a combination of bets 1X&ov 2.5 (home team to win or draw and over 2.5 goals in total) with a phenomenal quote of 2.65 at Mozzartbet.
