Chelsea vs Tottenham
Sunday, November 29th, 11.30 am (ET)
This is arguably the most anticipated clash in match week 10, as it is top of the table vs third spot but even without the table positions a clash like this sells itself, after all, it’s two London rivals going at it as Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.
This type of clash is always fiery, so expect fireworks as the two teams never like losing to one another, especially now both clubs could challenge Liverpool for the title.
Chelsea is finally playing the style that, manager and former player under Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho (when he was at Chelsea), Frank Lampard wants them to play. The Blues are currently the highest-scoring team in the Premier League with 22 goals as their star-studded attackers are all linking well together.
This is evident as striker Tammy Abraham has found the net twice in Chelsea’s last two Premier League fixtures while Timo Werner and Mason Mount are also looking dangerous creating plenty of chances.
While Chelsea has only had four clean sheets this season, their defense is finally coming to fruition as Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell are finally understanding each other’s movements and lastly, Benjamin Mendy is already proving his worth as Chelsea’s main shot-stopper.
Chelsea is on a bit of a roll in the Premier League as they have won their last three fixtures against Burnley, Sheffield United, and Newcastle. A Champions League win against Rennes earlier in the week would have Chelsea full of confidence.
However, it is not going to be easy for the Blues, as Jose Mourinho has got Tottenham playing extremely well and sitting first in the Premier League.
Much of Tottenham’s rise is to do with Harry Kane linking up with Son Heung-Min who has been unstoppable for the Lilywhites. The pair have been close to unstoppable, with Son kicking nine goals so far, the second most in the league, while Kane is leading the league in assists with nine and kicking seven goals himself.
The Spurs are rolling on a four-game winning streak with wins over Burnley, Brighton, West Brom and their most recent, a 2-0 win over Manchester City.
This will be an interesting match as both clubs have only conceded one goal in their last four Premier League matches, but we have Chelsea coming out on top at home.
Prediction: Chelsea win +106

Arsenal vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
Sunday, November 29, 2.15 pm (ET)
While this may not have the anticipation of a London derby, this is still a very interesting clash as the ninth placed Wolves only sit one point ahead of the 12th placed Gunners.
Both teams have plenty to prove, however, it’s Arsenal who have more on the line given that they are five points out from a spot in the top four and would also want to make amends from their 0-0 draw against Leeds from last week.
Given that result from match week 9, it has now meant that Arsenal’s lack of goals is still a major issue as they have not scored since their 1-0 win over Manchester United since November 2 (match week 7).
Following Nicolas Pepe’s red card against Leeds last week, it makes it slightly tougher for Arsenal to come back with a bang.
Despite the draw, Arsenal did keep a clean sheet after conceding three goals to Aston Villa a week prior and it has now meant that the Gunners have only one loss in their last three Premier League fixtures.
Wolves on the other hand are coming off a 1-1 draw with Southampton and would want to make amends and try and climb further up the table to try and fight for a European spot, although their form so far has been up and down.
With the draw from last week, it has meant that the Wolves along with Arsenal have lost only once in their last three games.
Despite Arsenal being the bigger club and having more to prove, we have the Wolves coming out on top.
Prediction: Wolverhampton Wanderers win +270

West Ham vs Aston Villa
Monday, November 30, 3.00 pm (ET)
Only one point separates both these sides as Aston Villa holds that narrow one-point advantage over this week’s opponents West Ham.
Heading into match week 9 Aston Villa were sixth in the league but following a 2-1 loss to Brighton it has meant they have slid down to the seventh spot.
The Villans would want to make amends for their shock loss, as they have now only won once in their last three Premier League games, with a win over Arsenal in match week 8.
Despite Aston Villa’s woes, they still have enough to turn it around as they have one of the best players in the Premier League in Jack Grealish, as well as Ross Barkley providing an extra piece to the puzzle to Aston Villa’s attack.
West Ham meanwhile has just been going about their business. Prior to match week 8 they were in 12th spot in the league but following two consecutive wins over Fulham in match week 8 and Sheffield United in match week 9 it has meant they are now eighth in the league and only one spot behind Aston Villa.
West Ham has slightly better recent form than their opponent with the Hammers notching up two wins from their previous three games compared to Aston Villa’s one.
Prediction: West Ham win +125
