Chelsea v Tottenham FA Cup Betting Tips
There is obviously going to be no holding back from either of these at Wembley on Saturday in the first FA Cup semi-final. There’s going to be no resting of players in this one. Each won their respective home game in the Premier League this season against the other and we would be expecting goals. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill is a quote of 8/11 and that has happened in five of the last eight meetings between these two. The head to head form is largely with Chelsea who have gone W5 D4 L2 in their last eleven against Spurs in all competitions. The last time they met in the FA Cup was just back in April 2012 when Chelsea ran riot in a 5-1 win. The Blues narrowly edge the FA Cup head to head with Spurs in a W5 D2 L4 record. Chelsea’s resolve though will be tested here because they were poor at Manchester United in a loss on the weekend and you wonder if cracks are starting to show with them having gone W2 L2 in their last four played.
But they bounced back after their recent loss against Crystal Palace with three league points against Man City and you will expect them to come up with something in this semi-final. Both teams to score in this one at William Hill is a price of 4/5 and the Blues have plenty of scoring power. Eden Hazard is their biggest threat at the moment and he is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option and he could enjoy the freedom of the Wembley pitch. They have to get him into the game somehow. Diego Costa is 13/8 anytime goalscorer favourite. This is a big chance for Chelsea to deliver a psychological blow to Spurs, who have cut the Blues’ lead at the top of the Premier League down to just 4 points from 13. Spurs have given them problems in recent meetings, but the Blues are unbeaten in four FA Cup games in a row against Spurs (W3 D1).
Tottenham are in immense form at the moment, with a mighty eight-match winning streak going in all competitions and they are unbeaten in ten games now (W9 D1). Tottenham have scored at least two goals in each of those ten games in that sequence and have also picked up six clean sheets. They have rattled off eight goals in their last two games. In the William Hill Correct Score market the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw at 5/1 but a Tottenham 1-0 at 7/1 is shorter than a win for Chelsea by the same scoreline at 15/2. Spurs to win to nil at William Hill is a quote of 7/2. They are going so well at the moment that for many they will be favourites here. If they win this then it will give them belief of catching Chelsea in the Premier League race as well, because it could unsettle the Blues further. Harry Kane is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option for them with Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min at 9/4. Given the lack of clean sheets that Chelsea have picked up lately, you would have to back the Lilywhites to score in this one. This is a huge FA Cup tie, with perhaps even more at stake than just making passage through to the Final.
Who will win – Chelsea v Tottenham FA Cup Predictions
Tottenham To Win: You would just have to side with the Lilywhites to come through in this one. They are running with very high confidence and self-belief at the moment and Chelsea haven’t banked a clean sheet for a long while now. Expect both teams to score, but the Lilywhites should just have the edge.
