Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea - Premier League Preview and Odds

August 20, 2017 16:00pm - Wembley Stadium

Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur will look to make a positive to start to life at their temporary new home when they take on reigning Premier League champions Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs got off to a winning start last weekend when they eased to a 2-0 win at newly-promoted Newcastle United. Despite the comfortable looking scoreline, the game remained goalless until the hosts were reduced to 10 men. They will face a much tougher challenge against one of the title favourites this weekend.

After a slow transfer window, the Londoners finally secured a major signing this week with centre-back Davinson Sánchez arriving from Ajax in a £40m deal. Their biggest problem this season will be adapting to Wembley Stadium, the venue where they struggled so much during last season’s European campaigns.

Meanwhile, Chelsea got off to the worst possible start, being reduced to nine men and falling 3-2 at home to notoriously bad travellers Burnley. The Blues will now be without Fabregas, Cahill, Hazard and Bakayoko for this game. This will be a concern as Chelsea`s record without Hazard does not make good reading with just four wins from the 14 fixtures he has missed.

With that in mind, the reigning champions could find it tough here and their own recent experience of playing at Wembley against teams from North London has not been positive.

Betting odds and tips

Spurs were strong at home against the top six last term, winning four and drawing one of their five matches. However, the Wembley factor could come into play here.

Both teams have fared poorly at this venue in recent times and will looking to make amends. Tight defensive displays can be expected from both sides and a low goal count could be on the cards. As a result, Under 2.5 Goals looks like the sensible bet here.

You can back Under 2.5 Goals at 19/20 with Bet365.
