Premier League Betting Tips: Tottenham v Chelsea

This could turn out to be one of the most exiting matches of the year in Premier League depending on the result in Manchester City- Manchester United match earlier today. A United win will create a scenario where Tottenham again can move up to fourth position with a win over Chelsea and at the same time put Manchester United only 1 point behind Chelsea in the title race.

Saturday at 17.30 BST

The venue between Tottenham and Chelsea will take place at White Hart Lane today Saturday April 17, 17:30 BST. Tottenham will be without Niko Kranjcar who is missing the rest of the season with an ankle injury and Tottenham still have Jensa, Cudcini, Lennon and Woodgate out with other injuries. Furthermore Palacios is serving a one match ban and Tottenham will look to field the same team that conquered Arsenal 2-1 in the exiting midweek match.

Chelsea does not have any notable problems with injured players and Carlo Ancelotti can field the strongest possible squad to maintain the pressure on Manchester United for the title. However going to White Hart Lane and win is not an easy task. Tottenham is unbeaten at White Hart Lane in their last nine matches and have only conceded 11 goals in the season at home. Only Manchester United can show the same numbers, which clearly show why Tottenham is up there fighting for the fourth spot giving access to the Champions League.
