Spurs can end Chelsea unbeaten run

The Premier League returns after the international break and the stand out fixture is the evening game, as London rivals Tottenham and Chelsea meet at Wembley.

There’s no love lost between the two sides and if Spurs have any aspirations of challenging for the title this term, this is a match they must win.

Hosts can dent Chelsea hopes – Tottenham v Chelsea (Saturday – 5:30)

Mauricio Pochettino has helped Tottenham end their Chelsea hoodoo in recent years, with Spurs (2.80 to collect three points) winning two of their last three Premier League meetings.

Last season, Pochettino’s men secured a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge and also defeated Chelsea in their title-winning season – a 2-0 success at White Hart Lane.

While Chelsea (2.60) are unbeaten this term, they have failed to beat several of the sides in the top half, drawing with Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton.

Dele Alli has scored five goals in the last five meetings in all competitions and the Spurs ace is 4.00 to score at anytime on Saturday.

Ranieri can lead Fulham to key win – Fulham v Southampton (Saturday – 3pm)

The only managerial change of the season so far came during the international break, when Fulham parted company with Slavisa Jokanovic.

How often do we see teams react in a positive manner to a change at the helm…that’s what makes the Cottagers a tempting 2.65 to beat fellow strugglers Southampton, especially with the experienced Claudio Ranieri now in charge.

Both teams are struggling for goals, with Fulham failing to score in the last four and Saints have bagged just two times in their last seven league games.

Ranieri will look to sure up at the back as soon as possible, with no clean sheets this season for the Cottagers. A Fulham win-to-nil can be backed at 4.20.

Watford can make it tough for Klopp’s Reds – Watford v Liverpool (Saturday 3pm)

Liverpool’s recent record at Vicarage Road doesn’t make great reading for Reds fans, with one draw, one narrow win and one defeat in their last three visits.

The goals haven’t exactly been flowing on the road for Jurgen Klopp’s men in the last month, scoring just three times in their last five away games in all competitions.

The hosts have won four of their six home matches to date and have conceded just twice in the last four fixtures –  with under 2.5 goals available to back at 2.20.

One other point worth noting is that Watford have conceded six goals in the last 12 minutes of games this season. 2.25 is on offer for a goal to be scored after the 70th minute.
