Chelsea vs Tottenham: Head to Head Preview

A fixture that has been dominated by the Blues over the years will see former manager Antonio Conte lead his side. 

Both Spurs and Chelsea will try to continue their winning momentum having won on the opening weekend.

  • Spurs sit top of the table heading into the start of Gameweek 2 after beating Southampton 4-1

Chelsea vs Tottenham: Head to Head

Over the years in the Premier League era, Spurs have been the second best as Chelsea have won 33 of the 60 affairs. 

On the flip side, Spurs’ 7 wins against Chelsea in the PL era constitute only an 11 percent win strike rate, one of the lowest for a fixture played over 50 times in the PL era. 

Interestingly, Spurs haven’t scored in any of their last 5 PL London derbies while losing five of the last six games against the blues.

Tactical Analysis | Harry Kane vs Jorginho 

Harry Kane has scored 6 goals in all competitions against Chelsea, over the years and will be a key presence for the team. 

When it comes to the PL, Harry has scored 4 goals, including a goal in the April 2-2 draw that saw Leicester City crown Premier League Champions. 

Kane can score with both feet as well as a header which makes him a good aerial presence in the team. Kane needs only one more goal to become PL’s highest scorer for one single club.

Jorginho has been good defensively as he produced more than 30 interceptions while also scoring 9 goals, including 6 in the PL. 

The penalty specialists slotted all his six goals from the spot and have missed only one penalty in the last two years. His tactical play can see him move in advanced positions but with Kane and Son on offer, it is hard to make a case for him. 

Chelsea vs Tottenham: Head-to-Head Form Guide

The two teams will be looking to bank on their impressive opening weekend in the PL. Spurs have been in a great vein of form ever since losing to Brighton at home at the backend of last season. 

The run that also saw them clinch the Champions League place. Chelsea’s only defeat in the last nine competitive matches was in the FA Cup final, as they have enjoyed a good revival.
