Pochettino's men have struggled for cutting edge in recent weeks, and Al Hain-Cole expects goals to be few and far between against the Blues

The pick of the Premier League fixtures takes place at Wembley on Saturday as Tottenham take on Chelsea.

Spurs have won three of their last seven league games against the visitors, as many as they had in the previous 49 top-flight encounters.

Latest Odds

However, having lost two of their four league matches on home turf this season, they are slight 17/10 (2.70) outsiders with bet365 to record consecutive victories over their London rivals for the first time since 1987.

Maurizio Sarri is yet to suffer a defeat in 18 fixtures since taking over in the summer, and is priced at 6/4 (2.50) to oversee arguably his most impressive victory yet here.

The hosts have not drawn any of their last 16 matches in the league, but are available at 12/5 (3.40) to play out a first stalemate since April.

Team News

Davinson Sanchez will face a late fitness test as he recovers from a hamstring injury, while Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele are injured and Kieran Trippier is doubtful.

Mateo Kovacic is a doubt after missing Croatia's Nations League defeat against England due to a minor muscle injury, with Ethan Ampadu the only other absentee for the guests.

Tight encounter

Although just a point adrift of the current top three, Mauricio Pochettino's men have not been entirely convincing over the last few weeks.

A 2-0 away win over Huddersfield at the end of September remains their only victory by more than a one-goal margin in nine league fixtures, while they have scored more than once in just one of the most recent five.

This does not bode well for what should be a far more challenging clash against the Blues, who have conceded just two goals in eight away matches this season.

Predictions

With a tight encounter looking likely, odds of 11/10 (2.10) are well worth backing on under 2.5 goals being scored for Tottenham's sixth league game in seven, and their third home match in four against Chelsea.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Under 2.5 goals for a 2pt stake at 11/10 (2.10) with bet365
