Chelsea will visit the London Stadium on Thursday night, for a crucial London derby game against Tottenham.

This game is a very important one in the race for top four, and both sides will be aiming for nothing less than a victory to boost their chances of finishing in the top four.

Chelsea are in better form over the last two games, with four points, while Spurs have lost their last two league games, with a surprise 1-0 defeat to Brighton last time out.

Despite Spurs recent bad form, Michael Owen has backed Tottenham to win the game with a 2-1 scoreline.

“Chelsea visit Spurs with Thomas Tuchel’s first three points as Blues manager in the bag after Sunday’s 2-0 home win against Burnley,” Owen told Bet Victor.

“For Spurs, their Sunday wasn’t as successful as they went down 1-0 away to Brighton.

“Talk of winning the title will seem like a distant memory for Spurs’ fans, but I just wonder what Jose Mourinho has up his sleeve ahead of this one.

“It’ll be an interesting battle between the two managers, and even though Tottenham haven’t had the results they may have wanted recently, these are the types of matches where Jose Mourinho excels.

“With that in mind, I fancy Spurs to just edge it over their London rivals.”
