Chelsea seem the better team in form as the Blues go away to derby rivals, Tottenham at the Tottenham Stadium tonight.

Spurs have looked a weakened side recently in the absence of Harry Kane, and have lost their last two games, including a shock defeat to Brighton.

In his predictions for match week 22, Sky Sports prediction expert Jones Knows backed Chelsea to win this game 2-0.

In his prediction, Knows said: “Jamie Redknapp got it spot-on in his post-match analysis of Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham after their limp showing at Brighton.

“There are too many things I don’t like right now when I look at this Tottenham side, with Jose’s mannerisms, the way he puts little messages out to people. Not good signs to be honest, because they were flying earlier in the season.”

“Throw no Harry Kane into the mix and Mourinho looks to have a confidence-drained side that look no better than a mid-table outfit. Kane alleviates the creative load on Spurs’ central midfielders but without him in the team, Pierre Emile-Hojberg is forced into doing a job that does not fit his industrious style. It’s easy to see Chelsea absolutely dominating the midfield battle in this one.

“Thomas Tuchel has added a bit of belief and energy into the Chelsea attacking ranks. This looks a perfect time to play Spurs to me.”
