Tottenham are in bad form heading to this game, as Jose Mourinho’s side have won just one of their last four games, with back to back defeats against Liverpool and Brighton.

For Chelsea, the Blues form has improved under Thomas Tuchel, with four points from his two games in charge, and back to back clean sheets.

However, former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov is predicting a draw in this game as he shows support for his former side.

The two teams played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge in the first leg, and Berbatov has gone for a similar result.

“Thursday night’s London derby could be an ideal opportunity for Spurs to start winning again and beating Chelsea would be great for the spirit in the camp,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“Mourinho would certainly love to inflict Tuchel’s first defeat. Chelsea looked more organised in their win against Burnley but it will take more than a change of manager to get them challenging at the top again.

“It will take time and Tuchel would probably have liked this match to come later in the season.

“Both teams will be up for it at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and it will probably come down to who wants it more. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had to settle for a point-a-piece.”
