Tottenham v Chelsea Betting: Blues to suffer more misery at Wembley

With spirits low and a number of key players absent, Al Hain-Cole expects Antonio Conte's champions to record a second successive defeat against Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to begin their Premier League life at Wembley with a victory when they welcome Chelsea to their new temporary home on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino's men won just one of their four European matches played at England's national stadium last season but are 11/10 (2.10) favourites with dabblebet to get off to a better start this season by coming out on top against their London rivals.

Having suffered a shock 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley on the opening day, the champions are 13/5 (3.60) outsiders to bounce straight back with a morale-boosting win here.

Just two of their last nine encounters between the sides have resulted in draws, but your can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.

Given the current mood surrounding the club, it seems difficult to believe that Antonio Conte's team were crowned Premier League champions just a few months ago.

However, a summer period that saw Diego Costa ostracized from the squad and a failure to land first choice transfer targets has all but banished the title euphoria, with defeats in the Community Shield and first league match compounding the misery even further.

To make matters worse, red cards for Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas against Burnley have depleted what was already a thin squad for Conte.

Having arrived from Monaco at the expense of the outgoing Nemanja Matic and Nathaniel Chalobah, Tiemoue Bakayoko is expected to remain on the sidelines due to a lack of match fitness on Sunday, with Eden Hazard and Pedro also ruled out.

With the likes of Jeremie Boga and Andreas Christensen therefore likely to feature in a weakened line-up, it seems like a good time for Spurs to take on the champions.

While fans and even players are frustrated by a lack of new signings, Pochettino's team are better placed to benefit from their relatively low key summer and resume the consistent performances they were putting in last campaign.

Having won 13 of their previous 14 league matches, odds of 11/10 (2.10) offer solid value on Tottenham taking advantage of the Chelsea turmoil with a big debut win at Wembley.
