Spurs don’t often beat Chelsea – but we fancy them this weekend

Tottenham have only won three of their 42 Premier League games against Chelsea, but they are our marginal favourites to beat their London rivals in Saturday’s eagerly-awaited encounter.charlie-mcCann_Aff

No team in Europe’s top leagues has conceded fewer goals this season than Spurs, who have let in only one.

Andre Villas-Boas’ side are 17/10 with BetVictor to win this weekend’s derby, with Chelsea 15/8 and the draw at 23/10.

It will be interesting to see if Jose Mourinho perseveres with Samuel Eto’o or goes with Fernando Torres after the latter’s man-of-the-match performance against Swindon in midweek.

Following Romelu Lukaku’s goal for Everton at Upton Park last weekend we have altered the prices on which Chelsea-owned striker will score most Premier League goals this term and bet:
Lukaku 11/8
Eto’o 5/2
Torres 3/1
Ba 6/1

Incidentally, Chelsea are 15/2 to win the Capital One Cup and such is the strength of their squad, that that looks a good bet to me despite them being drawn away to Arsenal in the next round.

If Arsene Wenger persists in playing Bendtner and co then the Blues will thrash the Gunners and that price looks too big to me.

Chelsea are currently 11/4 to regain the league title, with Manchester City 7/4 favourites and Tottenham 10s.

Fulham edged out Everton at Craven Cottage in midweek in a cracking cup tie and are now 25/1 to lift the trophy at Wembley.

And they are 6/5 to beat Cardiff on Saturday – a price which makes plenty of appeal despite the fact that Fulham have only taken one point from their last 18 available on home soil.

The Welsh side have had their limitations exposed since their famous win over Manchester City earlier in the season and this is a game that Fulham should take maximum points from.

Dimitar Berbatov has only scored twice in his last 12 league games but he is 5/1 favourite to score the opener at the weekend, with Darren Bent 11/2.

I fancy a 2-0 home win for Fulham, which is priced at 10/1 at BetVictor.

Berbatov remains 1/3 favourite to score most league goals for the Whites this term but if Bent can be kept fit the 9/4 could be the answer.

QPR march on at the top of the Championship after their latest 1-0 success and Middlesbrough would do well to get anything against them.

Boro have been disappointing so far this season, although they do tend to score goals.

We are unashamedly behind Rangers and believe they will win the Championship and make them 5/4 for the title.

They are 17/20 for all three points this weekend, which looks too big given Rangers’ excellent defensive record.

Charlie Austin is 12/1 to be the Championship’s top scorer and 15/4 to score the opener at Loftus Road on Saturday and 11/10 to find the back of the net at any time during the 90 minutes.

If you fancy Austin to score the only goal of the game we bet 22/1 and we bet 6/4 that the R’s keep another clean sheet.
