Kane and company can shrug of any weariness to add to Mourinho’s woes
Unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening day of the season, the young guns of Tottenham Hotspur will be a stern test of the Chelsea revival.
We have Spurs at 31/20 to pick up all three points in our Full Time Result betting with Chelsea at 9/5 – the draw is 95/40.
Spurs are back in north London after an exhausting 12-hour round trip to Azerbaijan, where they beat Qarabag FK 1-0 on Thursday night to ensure qualification for the knockout stages of the Europa League. Harry Kane helped himself to an eighth goal of the season in Baku and that goalless run at the start of the campaign is now just a distant memory.
The England striker grabbed a double in last season’s corresponding fixture against Chelsea when his team came from behind to secure a 5-3 win. In-form Kane is 9/2 in our First Goalscorer betting at White Hart Lane this Sunday as his team seek revenge for a 2-0 defeat by the Blues in last season’s Capital One Cup Final and they have been in far better form that their capital rivals overall this campaign.
John Terry was injured against Maccabi and is a major doubt for this one. Ramires could also miss out but Cesc Fabregas should be fit. Thibault Courtois and Falcao aren’t yet back in training but could return in the next couple of weeks. Dele Alli is suspended so misses this local derby but Kyle Walker, Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose are all available having been rested in midweek.
Chelsea have had 48 hours more than Spurs to recover from their European exploits, which may be a factor. But Mauricio Pochettino’s side are flying with five wins in six and can end a busy month with another victory. Matches between these sides are rarely dull and one of our featured facts points out that there has been 2 or 3 Total Goals (Aggregated) in Chelsea last four matches against teams in the top six – that outcome is 19/20 this weekend.
The match kicks off at 12.00pm on Sunday, November 29th at White Hart Lane
