Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur tips – Blues can be beaten by Spurs
Diego Costa missing for Chelsea and an improving Tottenham can take full advantage
December 2nd, 2014
It’s hard to bet against Chelsea, especially as they have yet to lose a football match this season, with several punters backing the Blues to go unbeaten this term.
However, there wasn’t a lot of menace about their performance at the Stadium of Light on Saturday when drawing 0-0 with Sunderland and they will have to face Tottenham without the suspended Diego Costa on Wednesday night.
Loic Remy and Didier Drogba can step into the breach although neither carry the same threat as Costa, while Tottenham are finally getting their act together under Mauricio Pochettino and might just nick a point or three from their short trip to west London.
Sky Bet offer 17/2 about a win for Spurs, with Tottenham having come from a goal down to beat Everton last Sunday and some of the team’s best performances have come on the road this term.
Indeed, the visitors have only lost once away from White Hart Lane, with Christian Eriksen standing out for Tottenham in the past few matches and this is a team who have won six of their past seven games in all competitions.
Will Pochettino be brave and go for Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado as an attacking duo, with Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic, Oscar and Eden Hazard ready to boss the midfield area as Chelsea look to preserve their 100% home record?
Either way, the 4/9 with BetVictor that Chelsea win the match is plenty short enough, with Spurs and the Draw looking a decent shout at 2/1 considering Costa is such an important player for the Blues.
