With three wins in their last four, Tottenham are well-positioned among the crowd of teams fighting for fourth place in the Premier League.
In our breakdown of Tottenham vs. Chelsea odds, props, and picks for Sunday’s match against the latter coming off a disappointing loss, we break down whether to expect things to finally start clicking for Chelsea this weekend.
After Chelsea owner Todd Boehly spent big during the Premier League’s winter transfer window, an inability to score did not appear to be a reasonable concern. But since adding Mykhailo Mudryk, Noni Madueke, and Joao Felix (on loan), Chelsea have scored just one goal in four games — three in the Premier League, plus a Champions League Round of 16 leg 1 loss to Borussia Dortmund. Chelsea’s latest embarrassment came last Saturday in a shutout loss to last-place Southampton.

Tottenham Roster, Injuries, and Betting News
Tottenham lost 4-1 to Premier League rival Leicester City on Feb. 11 and 1-0 to AC Milan in the Champions League on Feb. 14, but bounced back with a 2-0 win over West Ham last weekend. Spurs were dominant against West Ham, holding possession for 57% of the match while piling up six shots on goal compared to just one for their opponents.
Spurs have been led by Harry Kane and Son Heung-min for years, and both players should start on Sunday. With 17 goals in 24 games this year, Kane is once again a contender for the Premier League Golden Boot (or at least he would be if not for Erling Haaland). But to secure a top-four finish, Tottenham need Son (five goals in 20 starts in ’22-23), Dejan Kulusevski (two goals in 14 starts), and/or Richarlison (zero goals in six starts) to step up alongside Kane.
Spurs have also been shaky defensively this year, with 35 goals allowed through 24 games.
Part of the reason for the defensive struggles has been the recent absence of first-choice keeper Hugo Lloris, defender Ryan Sessegnon, and midfielders Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur, who are all expected to miss Sunday’s game.
Chelsea Roster, Injuries, and Betting News
On paper, Chelsea have everything but a striker, but their inability to finish chances has them 11 points behind fourth-place Tottenham going into Sunday’s game.
In three games with the players they added via the transfer window, Chelsea have scored just one goal, which is why they’ve gone 0-2-1, capturing just 2 of 9 possible points against teams in 6th, 18th, and 20th place in the table. In Premier League play, Chelsea have generated more than 2.0 xG in just one.
The good news for Chelsea is that after Sunday’s trip to Tottenham, their next four in the Premier League are against 19th-place Leeds United on March 4, 14th-place Leicester on March 11, 16th-place Everton on March 18, and 11th-place Aston Villa on April 1.
Chelsea’s roster imbalance — they are loaded at almost every position, but can’t score due to the lack of a striker — is well-documented. In recent weeks, no team in Europe has done less with more. The pressure on Graham Potter’s side to kick into gear will continue to mount until this team can string together a few victories.
Cesar Azpilicueta suffered a head injury last weekend against Southampton, and he’ll be one of several players unable to play for Chelsea. The Blues are also without Christian Pulisic, N’Golo Kante, and Edouard Mendy.

Tottenham vs. Chelsea Prediction: Tottenham 1, Chelsea 0
The case for Chelsea being on the verge of an offensive breakthrough would be much better if they were creating a lot of quality opportunities and just failing to convert them. That’s not exactly the case, though — they generated just 1.3 xG against Fulham on Feb. 3, 1.2 xG against West Ham on Feb. 11, and 1.5 xG against Southampton on Feb. 18. Those numbers do indicate they’ve been unlucky to score just once over the last 270 minutes, but they don’t have me convinced Chelsea will break out of their funk this weekend.
Tottenham have been inconsistent in February, beating Manchester City and West Ham, but losing to Leicester City in the EPL and AC Milan in the Champions League. That recent stretch doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence. Still, it doesn’t make sense to bet against Spurs at home against a team that lost to Southampton last weekend.
This is a tough game to predict, but it does feel like Kane, who hasn’t scored in Premier League play since Feb. 5, is due for a goal.
Here are a few bets available at DraftKings that are worth checking out:
- Harry Kane, Anytime Scorer (+115)
- Both Teams To Score — No (+105)
