Since a harrowing 3-0 defeat by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium at the end of September, Chelsea have won all six Premier League matches, scoring 17 goals and conceding none. Blues’ boss Antonio switched to a 3-4-3 formation for the game against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium and his side hasn’t looked back, with Victor Moses, in particular, enjoying a new lease of life at right wing-back. Back-to-back matches against Tottenham and Manchester City will test the Blues’ resilience, but they could be playing the Lilywhites at the right time.
Tottenham have the not insignificant distraction of a crucial Champions’ League against Monaco at the Stade Louis II on Tuesday, which could see them eliminated from the competition if they fail to win. Spurs’ boss Mauricio Pochettino was due to make late decisions on the fitness of Harry Kane, Delle Alli and Moussa Dembele and may be forced into changes of personnel on Saturday. In any case, Chelsea are on the crest of a wave at present so, with home advantage, let’s try the Blues to win 2-0 at 17/2 with bet365.
Selection: Chelsea to win 2-0 (17/2 with bet365)
