Tottenham softened the edge of this blockbuster slightly courtesy of their baffling 3-0 loss at Crystal Palace last week. 

After three straight 1-0 wins over Man City, Wolves and Watford, Spurs crumbled late and hard at Selhurst Park. They followed up last week's loss to Crystal Palace with a 2-2 draw at Rennes in the Europa Conference League on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are looking every bit the title contender, chalking up wins to nil over Palace (3-0), Arsenal (2-0) and Aston Villa (3-0), and a 1-all draw at Liverpool despite being reduced to 10 men. Romelu Lukaku bagged a brace against Villa to take his season tally to three.

Lukaku found the back of the net again in Chelsea’s 1-0 Champions League victory over Zenit midweek.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last six Premier League clashes with Tottenham, winning five. Last season Spurs won a League Cup tie on penalties, before the teams drew 0-0 at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea got up 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in EPL action.

Verdict

On a short turnaround against a heavyweight host unburdened by European competition, Chelsea may seem a bit short as a $1.80 favourite. But their defence under Thomas Tuchel (a Mo Salah penalty is their only goal conceded this season) should carry them through against a Tottenham side whose attack is yet to catch fire.
