Chelsea vs Tottenham betting tips and predictions for the 12:30pm kick-off in the Premier League on 20/02/2020 and a Bet Builder using the Coral app.
Three wins on the bounce have helped Spurs close the gap to just one point on their Saturday lunchtime opponents. Chelsea have endured a tough spell and sorely missed Abraham’s finishing last time out. See our Premier League betting tips and predictions for the lunchtime kick-off below.
Tottenham have won each of their last three league games, scoring two or more in each.
Spurs have lost just four of their 14 league games since Mourinho took charge, their heaviest defeat being the 2-0 home loss to Chelsea.
Chelsea have failed to win any of their last four league games, drawing twice and losing twice.
The Blues’ lead over the chasing pack has been cut to just a single point – defeat to Tottenham could see them drop as low as seventh.
Chelsea have struggled for wins since the turn of the year. Lampard has picked up just one league win from six games since the 1st of January.
The Blues arguably had the better of the first half against Manchester United (again) but were unable to make their chances count. Controversies aside, Chelsea were far from clinical and allowed their opponents back into the match. The likely return of Abraham up front will be a big plus for Lampard’s side.
Tottenham may be in comparatively good form, but the injury sustained by Heung-Min Son could cause issues. Spurs are already without Harry Kane and will likely field Lucas Moura up front. The Brazilian has failed to score in each of his last nine league games.
Chelsea’s lack of midweek fixture may further help their case as an increasingly thinly spread Tottenham suffered defeat to RB Leipzig on Wednesday.
Michy Batshuayi got himself into good positions in Abraham’s absence but as many suspected his finishing was subpar. The Belgian international will now likely make way for the returning Abraham and he’s our anytime scorer for the Chelsea vs Tottenham predictions this weekend.
Chelsea’s top goalscorer has been directly involved in four goals during their last six league games. He has hit 13 for the season so far and if Chelsea can present him with the kind of chances Batshuayi had, you would expect Abraham to fair slightly better
Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight league fixtures. On four of those occasions, matches have featured over 2.5 goals. Most notably, games against Arsenal (x2) and Leicester have featured three or more goals in that period.
Mourinho may be renowned for instilling defensive resolve in his sides but it has taken time at Tottenham. The Special One has only been able to coax three shut outs out of Tottenham so far. The last time these two sides met, Chelsea put two past his current side.
