Spurs vs Chelsea, Sunday 4.30pm

WHAT has happened to Chelsea in the last few weeks?!

Four defeats in five Premier League games and the wheels are threatening to come off Super Frank‘s first season in charge.

Any coincidence the downturn in form has been centred around the news that the club’s transfer ban has been lifted? Just me? Okay.

Away from Stamford Bridge this term you can pretty much guarantee a goal-fest, with 37 goals being scored at both ends in just EIGHT games.

But after back-to-back defeats on the road at City and then Everton, the Chelsea young guns are starting to feel the pinch.

They come to the shiny Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at just the wrong time.

Spurs’ 2-1 stoppage time win at Wolves was token Jose Mourinho and he’s starting to grind out the victories with four in their last five.

As a result, Tottenham can actually leapfrog Chelsea into the Champions League spots with three points here – that was unthinkable just a month ago.

History isn’t exactly on the Blues’ side either.

In their last seven visits to North London they’ve won just once, an early season 2017/18 victory when Spurs were forced to play at the soulless Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham have very much settled into their new ground and it feels like home.

So we’re all over their chances of piling more misery on Lampard as Mourinho looks to get one over his former club.

You can get a whopping 27/20 on a Spurs win, which is more than generous for a side with the third-best home record in the Premier League.

Like we mentioned earlier, we’re expecting goals. And a lot of them.

Over 2.5 goals is 8/15 and for this fixture, we reckon that’s overpriced.

Harry Kane found his groove against Burnley and now has 25 goals in 27 games for club and country this season.

He loves a London derby and we just can’t understand how he’s not an odds-on shot to score anytime.

Get on King Kane to do the business.

At 13/10 – remember this is to score at ANY time – that’s our bet of the weekend right there.

SunSport’s best bets

Over 2.5 goals in North London: 8/15

Spurs to beat Chelsea: 27/20

Harry Kane to score anytime: 13/10
