Why you should back Chelsea

Since dropping a 1-0 decision to Liverpool in Premier League play on Feb. 25, the Blues have been unbeatable at home across all competitions, recording five wins and a draw over their last six contests. They have outscored their opponents 22-11 in that span and rolled past Everton 6-0 in an EPL matchup on Apr. 15 in their last outing at Stamford Bridge. Midfielder Cole Palmer dominated that game, converting four times to increase his season total to 20 goals.

The 21-year-old Palmer, who is one goal behind Manchester City’s Erling Haaland for the league lead and is tied for fourth with nine assists, has scored half of his goals over his last six matches. Palmer also converted in the win at Tottenham earlier this campaign, while Nicolas Jackson registered his first career hat trick. A 22-year-old striker, Jackson scored in the victory against Everton as well, giving him 10 goals in his first season with Chelsea after notching 12 for Villarreal in 2022-23.

Why you should back Spurs

Tottenham also have a dangerous scoring threat in Son Heung-Min, who shares seventh place in the Premier League with 16 goals. The 31-year-old South Korean forward ended his three-game drought by converting in Tottenham’s loss to Arsenal over the weekend. Heung-Min is also an effective set-up man, as he is tied with Palmer and six others for fourth in the EPL with nine assists.

Brazilian forward Richarlison is second on Spurs with 10 goals, while Swedish winger Dejan Kulusevski has tallied six times. The 24-year-old Kulusevski is mired in an eight-game drought during league play but scored Tottenham’s lone goal against Chelsea in their first meeting of the season. Argentinian defender Cristian Romero converted just once in 49 matches over his first two seasons with Spurs but increased his 2023-24 total to five goals by tallying in Sunday’s loss to Arsenal.
