The good start to the season for Spurs hit a bump in the road last weekend with a 3-0 away defeat over Crystal Palace – a defeat that saw them drop back down to 7th in the Premier League table.

Things don’t get any easier for Nuno Santo’s men this weekend either as they entertain Chelsea, who head into week five in the English top-flight the joint leaders (with Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton) on 10 points.

Chelsea won this repeat fixture 0-1 last season too and if you fancy that scoreline again here, that’s on offer at 7.00, while Chelsea took 4 points of their London neighbours last term in the league.

In fact, Chelsea has won the last two repeat fixtures ‘to nil’ and are seven games unbeaten against Spurs in all competitions.

The Blues have also scored in 10 of their last 11 league games over Spurs, so it’s rare Chelsea don’t find the back of the net at least once when facing Spurs.

That said, these clashes are generally low-scoring encounters – 5 of the last 6 head-to-heads have gone UNDER 2.5 GOALS – this can be backed again at 1.72 and is sure to be a popular option.

Both teams also DIDN’T score in 4 of the last 6 head-to-heads – this is on offer at 1.80.

Looking at the scoring markets – each side has a main striker now in Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku, so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in that clash. Kane is 5.50 (1st) or 2.50 (anytime), while Lukaku is 4.00 (1st) or 1.95 (anytime).

But, Spurs midfielder – Dele Alli – is also a player to have on your radar. He’s netted 6 times in the last 13 head-to-heads. He’s 15.00 (1st) or 6.00 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that the draw might be popular – this has paid out in 3 of the last 12 league head-to-heads.

However, we’ll stick with the safer option of UNDER 2.5 GOALS – a bet that has paid out in 5 of the last 6 head-to-heads, so the 1.72 looks fair value on a wager that’s paid out 83% of the time in recent matches.
