An old-fashioned London derby headlines Matchweek 23 of the 2021/22 English Premier League season when Tottenham Hotspur head to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea this Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea have managed to win five of their last six league matches against Tottenham, keeping five clean sheets along the way. The Blues come into this matchup with mixed form in the EPL having drawn three of their past four matches. They dropped all three points at Manchester City last time out and can ill afford to drop points against Tottenham.

Thomas Tuchel is set call on off-season signing Saul Niguez to help in his midfield rotation and give one of Jorginho or N’Golo Kante a freshen up, considering the pace Tottenham play at. With Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner not starting in recent times, it will be left to the likes of Kai Havertz and Mason Mount to provide an attacking threat against a relatively inconsistent Tottenham defence.

Tottenham pulled of a miracle 3-2 win against Leicester in midweek EPL action when Steven Bergwijn netted an equaliser in the 95th minute and then put Spurs ahead in the 97th. It handed Tottenham a second consecutive win and kept their unbeaten streak in the league to eight matches. With Harry Kane finally hitting some form this season, Spurs will be heading to Stamford Bridge brimming with confidence.

History will be against Tottenham, though, with Antonio Conte needing to rewrite the history books on his first trip back to the Bridge in the EPL since leaving Chelsea. No previous Chelsea manager has returned to Stamford Bridge and managed to walk away with the three points (seven draws, 13 losses). Each of the last three managers – Jose Mourinho, Rafa Benitez and Carlo Ancelotti – tasted defeat when facing Chelsea for the first time on their home deck.

Despite Chelsea’s recent form, Bovada has them installed as -153.85 favourites to help close the gap to the top-of-the-table Manchester City. Tottenham are deemed rank outsiders at +400, with the draw listed as a +290 option.

Chelsea vs Tottenham EPL betting predictions

Half-time/full-time result: Chelsea/Chelsea

Chelsea hold two victories over Tottenham so far in January, having gotten the better of them in the Carabao Cup, and will be looking to complete the trifecta at Stamford Bridge. Despite most likely being without Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner once again, the Blues have a midfield that will provide the likes of Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech plenty of opportunities to infiltrate a fragile Spurs defence. The +150 on offer for Chelsea to complete the half-time/full-time double is too good to pass up.

Total goals: Under 2.5

With Chelsea’s lack of attacking threat, combined with an astute defence, we expect this London derby to be a low-scoring affair. Soccer betting sites are offering around -119.05 for this game to be under 2.5 goals, a score line this fixture has attracted in three of its last stagings in the EPL. With both games in the Carabao Cup saluting at under 2.5 goals, this looks to be a safe bet in what is set to be a season-defining clash for both sides.
