Tottenham vs Chelsea Betting Tips: Pressure on Son to step up in Kane's absence

04-Feb-2021, 03:25 pm

Heung-min Son Tottenham 2020-21

With Harry Kane out injured, the pressure is on Son Heung-min to shoulder the goal-scoring burden when Tottenham take on Chelsea on Thursday.

Despite failing to find the net in any of his last six matches, the South Korea international remains Spurs’ 5/1 (6.00) favourite to open the scoring and priced at 8/5 (2.60) to strike anytime against the London rivals.

Indeed, Son’s importance to the side is underlined by the fact that Carlos Vinicius is yet to score a league goal since joining as a back-up striker in the summer, making his 7/4 (2.75) anytime odds seem fairly uninspiring.

Gareth Bale has been a major letdown since making his dramatic return to the club but can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) to finally make an impact by scoring just a second league goal at the perfect time versus the Blues.

For Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel has been experimenting with his lineups in the first couple of matches since arriving at Stamford Bridge, offering Oliver Giroud, Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham one start each against Wolves and Burnley.

With none of them getting on target in either match, it remains to be seen who the former Paris Saint-Germain manager will go with to lead the line against Spurs.

Werner did at least get on target in September’s 1-1 Carabao Cup draw at this ground and is available at 4/1 (5.00) to stake his claim with the opener in this one, or 5/4 (2.25) to strike anytime.

Having scored just three times in the league this season, Giroud may struggle to justify his 5/4 (2.25) to hit the back of the net against Jose Mourinho’s men.

Meanwhile, Abraham looks unlikely to start here after being taken off at half-time in the win over Burnley, making his own 7/5 (2.40) price look equally unappealing.

Instead, Callum Hudson-Odoi could be an attractive outside bet at 9/4 (3.25) after proving a central figure in Tuchel’s two matches so far, whilst Mason Mount is an 11/4 (3.75) shot after netting the final league goal of Frank Lampard's reign.

All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
