Spurs vs Chelsea - betting preview with Marathonbet
31 December 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
After holding Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United to a goalless draw at the weekend, Tottenham Hotspur welcome Chelsea to White Hart Lane on New Year’s Day feeling confident.
The Blues, the league leaders, could only manage a draw away to Southampton on Sunday, so they’ll be keen to return to winning ways to keep second-placed Manchester City at bay.
Indebted to Hugo Lloris’ first-half heroics against Robin van Persie and co. on Sunday, Spurs will no doubt be keen for the action to be at the other end of the pitch against Chelsea and will look to the always lively Harry Kane - 9/5 to score anytime - up front to cause their London rivals problems.
When Spurs last met Jose Mourinho’s men at the Lane it ended in a 1-1 draw and a repeat is currently 34/5.
At 39/50, both teams to score deserves consideration while an opening Spurs goal followed by a home win is 49/10.
Given it will be a hotly contested London derby, it may also be worth taking advantage of the 3/1 anytime (or 9/1 first) offer on Christian Eriksen to score, given that he is Spurs’ set-piece specialist.
