Chelsea Stats & Form
Chelsea had a good start of the Premier League season winning 1-0 on the road against Everton. Jorginho scored the only goal in the match from the penalty spot in the stoppage time of the first half.
This was the third consecutive win for Chelsea including the preseason and Thomas Tuechel has no reason to worry about the form despite the team looking way different from last season.
Chelsea is currently eighth in the standings as the only one of the winning teams in the opening round that scored only one goal.
Chelsea possible lineup: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly, James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell, Mount, Sterling and Havertz
Timo Werner will not be available for Chelsea for the game against Tottenham.
Tottenham Stats & Form

The Spurs are on top of the Premier League after the opening round of the 2022-23 season after they defeated Southampton 4-1 at home. Ryan Sessegnon, Eric Dier and Dejan Kulusevski scored for Tottenham while Mohammed Salisu hit his own net.
This was Tottenham’s third win in the last five games including the preseason with one loss and one draw.

Chelsea vs Tottenham Head-to-Head Stats
Chelsea has won the last 4 and 7 of the last 10 games against Tottenham in all competitions. The last time the Spurs defeated the Blues was in January of 2019.
The last three and 6 of the last 10 games between these two teams have ended under 2.5 goals.
Chelsea vs Tottenham Betting Odds
Chelsea is a slight favorite to win this game with 123 odds in their favor while Tottenham is at 222. The odds for draw are at 238.
The total goal margin is set at 2.5 with both ways at -110.
One of the most important derbies in the city of London is the Chelsea vs Tottenham derby. Another reason for that is the fact that both teams finished in the top 4 last season which sent them to the Champions League. This season will not be much different since both Chelsea and Tottenham are still one step behind Manchester City and Liverpool when we talk about the quality of their rosters. That means that both teams will have to fight for a Champions League spot and therefore this game will be extremely important even though the new season has just started. Both teams started well winning three points in the opening round. Chelsea has not lost to Tottenham in the last 12 games which certainly makes them the favorite to win but Tottenham is not a team that should be underestimated. Antonio Conte’s squad scored 4 goals in the season opener and their best scorer Harry Kane was not among those who hit the net against Southampton. Anyway, the last three head-to-heads finished under 2.5 goals and given the fact that both teams will try more to defend than to attack on Sunday, placing a bet on under 2.5 goals seems like the best deal.
Expert betting tip: Under 2.5 goals (-110 by 22bet)
