Two English Premier League contenders will go toe to toe on Sunday to wrap up another week of soccer. Tottenham and Chelsea are set to face off in an early season London Derby. Tottenham dropped from the top of the table following a loss to Crystal Palace last week and has only failed to secure three points once in league play. On the other hand, Chelsea is unbeaten in league play and will compete to stay that way.
Kickoff at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is set for 11:30 a.m. ET. Chelsea is the -145 favorite (risk $145 to win $100) in the latest Chelsea vs. Tottenham odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Tottenham is the +430 underdog, while a draw is priced at +265, and the over-under for total goals scored is set at 2.5.

Why you should back Tottenham
Tottenham isn't running hot right now but has still only lost one match this season. The Spurs struggled against Crystal Palace because of their makeshift defense. The back four might improve on Sunday, though, as Davison Sanchez could be fit enough to return to center back. The home team's attack also has a chance to improve.
Son Heung-Min is on track to return from injury. His speed and playmaking helped the Spurs knock off Manchester City. The duo combined for 40 goals and 25 assists last season and can test Chelsea's resolve together.
Why you should back Chelsea
The Blues opened up the 2021 season with shutout victories over Crystal Palace and Arsenal. Chelsea tied Liverpool 1-1 despite losing Reece James to a red card for a handball in the box halfway through the match. Chelsea hasn't allowed a goal in open play yet and has outscored Premier League opponents 9-1. That could make things tough for a Tottenham side that's only scored three goals in four league matches.
Romelu Lukaku's return to Chelsea has bolstered the attack. The Belgian striker has scored four goals in four matches across all competitions and frees space for the Blues' creative midfielders and fullbacks. Tottenham's banged-up defense should be challenged by one of the Premier League's most productive attacks.
