In the central match of the tenth round of the English Premier League on Sunday, November 29, Chelsea will host Tottenham – we assessed the state of the teams and made a forecast.
For Chelsea this season is going well so far. This week, the “retirees” played away in the Champions League against Rennes and achieved another success in the European Cup with a score of 2: 1. This is the sixth victory in a row for the London club in the last official matches. Three of them, however, took place in the Champions League, where, in addition to the French in the first confrontation (3: 0), Chelsea also knocked out Krasnodar. Nevertheless, Frank Lampard’s wards have already secured a ticket to the playoffs and can safely switch to the championship.
The “Chelsea” the Premier League at the moment is on the third position. The team has earned 18 points in nine matches and is two points behind Tottenham.
The Blues have won in the last three rounds in a row, showing good performance. During this period, Burnley (3: 0) and Newcastle (2: 0) fell away, while Sheffield United was knocked out at home (4: 1). In general, at home, the London club lost in the current championship only to Liverpool (0: 2), after which they beat Crystal Palace (4: 0), ended in a draw with Soton (3: 3), and, as it was mentioned above, achieved success in the match with the “blades”. It should be noted that the defeat to the reigning champion is the only one for Chelsea in the Premier League.
There are no personnel losses among the hosts.
“Spurs” are also successful so far on all fronts. Last Thursday , Tottenham took out Ludogorets in their home arena in the fourth round of the Europa League without any problems. And the Londoners played in this meeting with almost a reserve squad.
The performance in the European competition does not affect the performance of Jose Mourinho’s team in the Premier League. Tottenham suffered the only defeat in the championship in the starting round from Everton (0: 1), after which they do not know the bitterness of defeat for eight matches in a row. During this period, Mourinho’s wards lost points twice more, and they did it exclusively in their own arena. But the Spurs’ guest has so far a 100% result. On the road, they have already beaten Southampton (5: 2), Tottenham (6: 1), Burnley (1: 0) and West Bromwich (1: 0).
It should be noted that Tottenham have two top scorers of the current championship. Son Heung Min has nine goals to his credit, and Harry Kane has seven goals. In general, Londoners are among the top three teams in the Premier League in terms of performance, having 21 goals scored in their assets.

Both teams are now on the move. Both Chelsea and Tottenham score very well, therefore, in our opinion, it is better to bet on goals here. Spurs love and know how to play on defense, and Chelsea often misfire when they have to play number one. In addition, head-to-head matches at Stamford Bridge between opponents are mostly rich in goals scored.
