The first game of the season we haven’t started favourites for and for good reason. Lose this game and it’s Tottenham’s worse ever start to a Premier League campaign. Although we have somewhat overturned the hoodoo Chelsea had over us in recent times, we have never beaten them at the bridge in the Premier League.
Chelsea have gained more wins, scored more goals and accumulated more points against Tottenham in the Premier League than any other club.
Ballack and Essien and both doubtful for Chelsea and Drogba is still out with a knee injury.
Spurs are still without Alan Hutton.
Head To Head
Spurs have an awful record against Chelsea in the Premier League. They haven’t won at Stamford Bridge since 1990.
As we know all too well, Spurs have lost their first two matches this season against Sunderland and Middlesbrough.
Chelsea have won their first two games and are unbeaten in 23 Premier League matches.
I can see nothing other than a Chelsea victory today. They have looked their usual clinical best in their first two games and we have looked dreadful. I don’t think we will get hammered but I can’t see us scoring with 2-0 to the chavs being the most likely outcome.
Chelsea to win 2-0 @ 6/1 with Ladbrokes
John Terry to score at anytime @ 8/1 with William Hill
I’d love to hear from anyone that thinks differently!
