The Blues might be struggling for consistency in form on the domestic front, but their good record in this fixture should ensure a point at least

Chelsea will be looking to earn the bragging rights as they welcome London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League affair on Wednesday night.

Maurizio Sarri will be hoping his wards rise from their EFL Cup final ruins against Manchester City, by ensuring all three points in front of their home fans at (2.35) odds with BetKing.

Within the space of two weeks, Chelsea fans have had to watch their darling team lose 6-0 to Manchester City in the Premier League, get knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United in their own backyard and the recent loss in the EFL Cup final.

They will, however, be counting on their team’s impressive record against Tottenham on Wednesday.

For context, the Blues have only lost one of their last 32 home games against Spurs in all competitions (W20 D11).

However, Chelsea lost the reverse fixture and they will definitely be looking to avoid back-to-back league defeats against Tottenham in this clash. The last time Sarri’s men lost twice to this opponent in a single campaign was in 1970/71.

The last two meetings between both sides failed to produce more than three goals in each contest. And going by their poor record in front of goal recently, punters should expect a low-scoring affair here.

Juicy odds of (1.78) are on offer with BetKing for an outcome that sees the home side avoid defeat, with nothing more than three goals resulting from this encounter.

Only one of the previous nine meetings between these two has ended in a draw. A rare stalemate at the end of 90 minutes is going for (3.45) odds with the same betting outfit.

Tottenham suffered a 2-1 defeat to Burnley in their most recent away game. The Lilywhites also suffered a 2-1 loss last time out on this turf in the EFL Cup. Mauricio Pochettino and his men will thus have it all to do if they desire a win in this match at (3.20) odds with BetKing.
