Tottenham vs Chelsea (2022/23 Premier League) Key Info
After two consecutive defeats, Tottenham Hotspur lightened up the mood in the team with a 2-0 win over West Ham last game week. They are firmly in the race for the top-four finish and Champions League participation next season, and they approach this game with no margin for error.
Chelsea invested heavily in the squad during the winter transfer window, spending over £250M, but they have won only one game this year, and Graham Potter’s job is under much scrutiny ahead of this game.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Match Preview and Statistics
Tottenham vs Chelsea Odds
Chelsea has been the underdog to all the top four teams they have faced away from home this season, and they remain the underdogs to win this game at 3.00 (2/1). The sportsbook for football is offering 2.40 (7/5) on a Spurs win, while a draw is worth 3.25 (9/4).
Tottenham Hotspur’s dreams of a Premier League title are slowly fading away as they sit in fourth position, 12 points behind Arsenal. They have played one more game than fifth-placed Newcastle United but should also turn back because of a few more teams aiming for their recent Champions League spot. Tottenham Hotspur has three wins in their last five games, and two of those victories were at home; a major boost for the hosts.
Chelsea have forgotten about the win of the Premier League this season, and they are experiencing one of their worst runs in recent years. They have been outside the top four in over three months and trail by a goal in their UEFA champions league tie against Dortmund. With just one win from their last ten games in all competitions, the Blues are very low on confidence ahead of their trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Predictions
Tottenham Hotspur to Win @ 2.40 (7/5)
Tottenham is a much better team than Chelsea this season, and their best performances have come at home. Spurs have won two tough home games in a month with victories against Manchester City and West Ham. What is more convincing is that Tottenham kept clean sheets in both games, and a third consecutive home win is high on the cards for Tottenham Hotspur. Chelsea’s record against the top five teams this season is poor, with three defeats and two draws in five games.
Chelsea is one of the worst big teams in the English Premier League this season. Their bad run stretches from last year ending to the new year, and they have only three wins in all competitions since November. A change in manager and recent acquisitions in the winter market have failed to bring any improvements to the team yet. Chelsea has lost their last two games with defeats against Dortmund and Southampton, and a home win for Tottenham is the best available option here.
Total Match Goals – Under 3.5 @ 1.44 (4/9)
Both teams haven’t been at their best scoring form this year, although Tottenham is far better than Chelsea. The Blues have not scored more than a goal in each of their last ten games, and nine of those games ended with three goals or less. On the other hand, seven out of the last ten games involving Tottenham have finished with a full-time score of three goals or less. Betting on Chelsea and Tottenham to finish with three goals or fewer is a valuable option in this game.
Total Match Corners – Over 9.5 @ 1.83 (5/6)
Both teams are averaging almost six corners per game. Chelsea is getting 5.60 corners every 90 minutes, while Tottenham has a slightly better output at 5.80 corners per game in the Premier League. Four out of Chelsea’s last five games have ended with 10 corners or more, while Tottenham Hotspur has seen at least 10 corners in all but one of their last five matches.
