Three reasons why Chelsea will beat Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League

We explore the three main reasons why Chelsea should be considered favourites to win against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Wednesday…

Better team

It’s as simple as that. Jose Mourinho’s team are much better than Tottenham; they may even be the best and strongest side in the Premier League.

Despite the suspension of star striker Diego Costa, the Blues will have a strong team capable of defeating Tottenham.

The likes of Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matic are top footballers who will probably be too much to handle for Spurs.

Home advantage

Chelsea are still unbeaten in the Premier League and are playing at home. The London outfit are currently six points clear at the top of the league standings, and they will be keen to at least extend it.

The Stamford Bridge has become a fortress for Mourinho and his players, and the fans will be behind the team to help them return to winning ways.

Prove detractors wrong

Chelsea dropped two points at the weekend when they were held to a goalless draw by Sunderland away from home in the Premier League.

The Blues’ performance and failure to win led many observers to suggest that they are slowing down, which is Mourinho’s men will go full throttle at Tottenham.

Mourinho has used criticisms from outside to rally his players, and he is likely to do so on Wednesday for the London derby.
