Tottenham v Chelsea. Betting tips, odds & prediction for EPL match

Two best sides of the last season Chelsea and Tottenham will open the first London derby in EPL season 2017/18. Spurs are now playing at Wembley due to White Hart Lane reconstruction and it is not the best venue for Tottenham as Mauricio Pochettino and his team has lost 6 of 10 games at this stadium in the last term. But the curse must be removed as Tottenham will play at Wembley for the whole season including Champions League matches. To make the pitch lucky the Spurs have to take a victory in a clash against Chelsea.

Betting Tip: Tottenham can’t win in Chelsea’s clashes away from home soil since year 2010. Will Wembley become home soil pith for the Spurs at 20 of August?

The reigning EPL champion Chelsea had an awful start. At a home soil Stamford Bridge the Blues had lost to Burnley with a score-line 2-3 and with losing Gary Gahill and Cesc Fabregas due to suspensions. Now Antonio Conte has to think twice whether to use Antonio Rudiger or Andreas Christensen in the center of defense. At the same time the hole in a defensive midfielder zone can be closed by David Luiz and in this case both German and Danish defenders will be in staring XI. The other option is recovered from injury Tiemoue Bakayoko but it is too risky to throw the French player in a London derby crack.

Betting Tip: Chelsea had become the first reigning champion team to lose in the first matchday of a new season at home soil pitch

Tottenham played with Newcastle in the first matchday and this was a tough work for the Spurs before the red card for Rafa Benites’ side. After that the Spurs scored twice with Cristian Eriksen mad two assists. The battle of Eriksen and Dele Alli against N’Golo Kante could have a crucial impact on Tottenham v Chelsea clash at 20 of August. The Spurs have to prepare to defend against Alvaro Morato – the Spaniard brilliantly came out of a bank during the first matchday against Burnley and must be in starting XI in London derby at Wembley.
