With the Blues struggling for form, Al Hain-Cole is backing Mourinho's resurgent Spurs to record an important win against his former club on Sunday

Sunday’s Premier League clash between Tottenham and Chelsea looks set to be a particularly highly-charged affair.

Jose Mourinho has overseen four wins in five league matches since taking over in north London, moving his new side to within three points of his former club in fourth.

He is now priced at 11/8 (2.38) with 888Sport to ensure they sit in the top four at Christmas by masterminding another big win here.

Meanwhile, the Blues have lost four of their last five games in the league, and are 19/10 (2.90) outsiders to secure just a third win in 14 on the road against this opposition.

None of the guests’ last 13 league fixtures have resulted in draws, but there are odds of 13/5 (3.60) available on them settling for a single point in this one.

Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm, Erik Lamela, Ben Davies and Tanguy Ndombele are all ruled out with injury for the home side.

Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud are both doubtful, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek remains short of match fitness despite returning to training.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Preview

Although the appointment was far from universally popular at the time, Mourinho has certainly gone a long way to justifying the decision in his month at the helm.

Having been 10 points adrift of fourth upon his arrival, Spurs have moved to within a single win of leapfrogging Frank Lampard’s men over the course of just five matches.

The flip-side of that story is Chelsea’s rather alarming decline, which does not bode well for this trip considering their poor recent record in away matches against this opposition – winning just once in seven visits.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Tips and Predictions

On current form, Tottenham are surely worth backing at those 11/8 (2.38) odds to complete the turnaround by coming out on top against a struggling Chelsea outfit.
