CHRIS GRAHAM (@ChrisGraham79) shares his betting thoughts on Monday night’s crucial Premier League encounter from Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea v Spurs | Bank Holiday Monday 20.00 | Sky Sports 1
I’ll be backing Chelsea in the draw no bet market at even-money with 888 on Monday night and here’s a few reasons why: Chelsea have lost just once in nine home Premier League games now (W2-D6-L1) and suffered just two Premier League defeats in 18 (W8-D8-L2).
This is a chance for the Blues to partly redeem themselves in front of their own supporters after a really awful season. Oh and the players and fans are desperate to see Spurs fail in their title challenge.
There’s also the small matter of Edin Hazard returning to form in last weekend’s win – the Belgian is looking to attract new suitors and Monday night’s the perfect opportunity to impress.
As for Spurs, well their horrendous Stamford Bridge is well documented but just let it soak in – three successive defeats at Chelsea and no win in 30 dating back to 1990!
It’s perfect evidence of an inferiority complex for Tottenham and conclusive proof (if you like) came in November when Mauricio Pochettino’s men couldn’t beat the Blues during the last dark days of Jose Mourinho.
