Tottenham vs Chelsea London (Premier League, 01.01.2015)

Seventh place meets first as Tottenham face another Premier League giant just three days after playing Manchester United. This time they are to face Chelsea, and while both teams are in great form, the visitors are the ones who failed against a resilient Southampton side.

Chelsea missed the opportunity to take the lead in the title race even if Southampton had 10 men on the field. It was Hazard who scored the equalizer and avoided the defeat, and in the end the referees where the ones to be blamed by Jose Mourinho. Tottenham come from a goalless draw against Manchester United, where Hugo Lloris, later declared Man of the Match, kept the United strikers downright frustrated with their inability to score.

Jose Mourinho is looking forward to steer his team towards another winning streak and perhaps if he fields Oscar, Hazard and Costa as his attacking line, Lloris will not be able to stop all the attacks. Fabregas was fielded in a more advanced position against Southampton, which allowed him to assist the equalizer, but also dive for a penalty, or that is get fouled for a penalty that was considered a dive by the referee. Tottenham need to improve how they play at home if they are keen to compete for a European place in 2015. Spurs are also unable to win against Chelsea since 2010, and the last four wins by the Blues have seen at least two goals being scored.

Chelsea are the overall favorites to win with 1.80 odds from Ladbrokes, and even the draw, at 3.60 has better odds than a Tottenham win with 4.33 odds. Both teams to score has 1.75 odds, Chelsea to lead after 30 minutes 2.90, Tottenham to win either half 2.50, Chelsea in the same market 1.45. Diego Costa to score has 2.05 odds, Hazard 2.75 and Oscar 3.25, Harry Kane 3.30 and both Adebayor and Soldado 3.80. We are going to bet 6 units on the wincast market of Diego Costa to score and Chelsea to win with 2.87 odds from Ladbrokes.
