CAN MOU BE FRANK?! MATCH PREVIEW: TOTTENHAM VS CHELSEA


Father and Son

Jose Mourinho will be looking for a big performance from his team  that can inspire the home crowd to drown out the visitors and he will feel he can get one. They might not have been at their best last weekend, but Tottenham Hotspur won and they have also won 3 in a row at home under Mourinho while scoring three or more goals each time.

They will feel they can expose a Chelsea team who have not won any of their last 3 away games in all competitions and The Blues have conceded at least twice in each of those fixtures.

While Chelsea still look dangerous  going forward, a young team have just hit the wall of late with 4 losses in 7 games in all competitions. Young players will sometimes just lack the consistency teams are looking for and Frank Lampard has recognised Chelsea need to bring in some experience in the January transfer window to really push on.

Earlier in the season they were playing very well away from home, but Chelsea have lost back to back Premier League games away. Chelsea have also struggled against the top teams in the league with losses to Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and draws at home with Leicester City and Sheffield United.

With that in mind I am backing Tottenham Hotspur with win and Over 1.5 goals . I am still not convinced by the defending Spurs have produced, but they have been scoring enough goals to make up for that and I just think the experience factor is with the home team which can make the difference in games like this one.

Tottenham Hotspur don't have the best record against the top clubs they have faced, but the win over Wolves will give them a boost and I would be surprised if the home team were to lose this fixture.

HEAD TO HEAD

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs met four times last season and all of those games were won by the home team.

Tottenham Hotspur have won 3 of the last 4 games they have hosted against Chelsea.
