Tottenham make the short trip to Chelsea on Saturday searching for their first win over the Blues in 10 years.
George Graham's team have been extremely poor travellers earning only one point from their last five games. Therefore surreysports.com are offering generous odds of 4/1 on a Spurs success.
In contrast Chelsea have been in commanding form at home this month, defeating Liverpool 3-0 and last week Claudio Ranieri's team trounced Coventry City 6-1 in a swashbuckling display of lightning one-touch football.
One player who shone during the goal blitz was £15 million striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink who recorded the highest ever Opta score for an individual performance. The flying Dutchman notched 3,502 points for his seven shots on target including four goals and he had another two efforts just off target.
Hasselbaink's four-goal haul not only lifted him into peak position as the Premiership's most deadly finisher with a 56% shooting accuracy but also boosted his team's overall goals to shots ratio of 15%, one of the best ratios in the division.
In contrast Spurs' shooting accuracy of 40% was the fourth-worst in the Premiership and Graham will find his options limited up-front. Steffen Iversen and Chris Armstrong will be unavailable and last week's two-goal hero Oyvind Leonhardsen was carried off on a stretcher during the 3-1 win over Derby. The Norwegian midfielder is expected to be out for a least a month with a hamstring injury.
Despite last weeks victory some sections of the White Hart Lane crowd were baying for the head of George Graham and the tough Scot is showing signs of frustration at the constant abuse hurled in his direction. Graham admitted: The abuse is probably 75 per cent down to me, and I don't mind that. But the crowd should try and lift the players not boo them".
One of the main causes for the fans' complaints is the style of football currently being served up by Graham's teams, a far cry from the free-flowing push and run brand of play which originated from the club during the last century.
Envious glances are often focused towards a more exciting unit at Chelsea, whose passing accuracy puts Spurs to shame. Seventy-eight per cent of their passes have found Chelsea's intended target, and expect the Blues to dominate possession in Saturday's contest at Stamford Bridge.
Claudio Rainieri has been described by some sources as an Italian George Graham, a man from the school of hard knocks who wants his team to display a fighting spirit as well as playing high-quality football.
This resolve has already seemed to have rubbed off on the Blues, who boast a 76% tackle success rate and although they may not dish out another six-of-the-best expect Chelsea to secure another three points at the expense of their London rivals.
