An interesting characteristic of recent Tottenham Hotspur games is the number of nil scores.
Taking their previous 6 clashes leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a loser. Previous results aside, we’ll just have to find out whether that pattern shall continue on in this next game or not.

Team News: Tottenham Hotspur
Ryan Sessegnon (Knock), Giovani Lo Celso (Quarantine), Heung-min Son (Calf Strain), Cristian Romero (Quarantine) and Davinson Sánchez (Quarantine) aren’t available for Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espírito Santo.
Team News: Chelsea
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Charly Musonda Jr. (Knee Surgery) and N'Golo Kanté (Groin Injury) are not ready for selection.
Our assessment here is that Tottenham Hotspur will need things to go their way to be putting a goal past this Chelsea lineup who we think will likely win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We therefore fancy a very competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Chelsea when the referee blows for full-time.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
