Chelsea v Tottenham. It is one of the biggest, oldest, most fiercely contested rivalries in English football and we are set for another showdown between the two of them on Saturday in the Premier League. These two are not exactly on friendly terms. Back last May in a 2-2 draw at the Bridge, which was arguably one of the most memorable games of the entire season, Tottenham picked up nine yellow cards in the game, setting a new record for the most earned by one team in a Premier League match.
Remarkably they didn’t have anyone sent off, but Eden Hazard completed a comeback for Chelsea from 2-0 down at the break to earn the Blues a point and end Tottenham’s hopes of winning the Premier League. So a double whammy from the Blues and not only that, it meant that they stretched out their unbeaten home form against Tottenham to 29 matches. Yes, 29 matches across all competitions it has been since the Lilywhites last took a win at Stamford Bridge. It’s a remarkable stretch of uneaten form and punters will be expecting it to stay intact this weekend.
That is because Chelsea are on a six match winning streak in the Premier League at the moment and they have not conceded a single goal in that sequence. That is the kind of form not to be messed with at the moment and it has been form which has seen them rise to the top of the table heading into this weekend’s action. Will they be able to stretch things out to a seven match winning streak and take down their old foes again? It should be another hotly contested derby.
Chelsea have Diego Costa who just can’t stop scoring this season and they have Eden Hazard back in top form and the Belgian has four goals in his last five league games against the Lilywhites too. Not even the return to form of Harry Kane for Spurs may be enough for the Lilywhites in this one. Spurs have collected just the one win in their last nine games across all competitions now and have only gone W1 D4 in their last five Premier League games. They do remain unbeaten this season in the league, but that is going to seriously be on the line at the Bridge.
