Chelsea’s victory at champions Manchester United on Sunday moved them up to third spot, tightening their grip on a top four berth and the Blues will effectively be guaranteed Champions League football next season if they get the better of fifth-placed Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.
BetVictor chalk Rafa Benitez’s side up at 20/21 to secure the crucial three points and as they have won four of their last five league games, only the controversial Luis Suarez leveller at Anfield, denying them a fifth victory in that sequence, they should have the edge.
The case for Chelsea is strengthened by a few unconvincing recent Spurs performances but Andre Villas-Boas’s side can still ensure it’s a difficult evening for his former club, who are a 3/1 shot at Skybet to emerge victorious by a one-goal margin.
Stan James rate them at 8/1 to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline in a fixture that’s a solid-looking 13/20 (BetVictor) to see both teams get on the scoresheet and Coral quote the hosts at 2/1 to be in front at the end of both halves.
