Former Manchester United star, Michael Owen, has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Chelsea when both sides meet in Thursday’s Premier League tie at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham head to the match following a 1-0 defeat against Brighton on Sunday, while Chelsea won Burnley 2-0.
Providing his prediction, Owen told BetVictor: “Chelsea visit Spurs with Thomas Tuchel’s first 3 points as Blues manager in the bag after Sunday’s 2-0 home win against Burnley.
“For Spurs, their Sunday was not as successful as they went down 1-0 away to Brighton.
“Talk of winning the title will seem like a distant memory for Spurs’ fans, but I just wonder what Jose Mourinho has up his sleeve ahead of this one.
“It will be an interesting battle between the two managers, and even though Tottenham have not had the results they may’ve wanted recently, these are the types of matches where Jose Mourinho excels.
“I fancy Spurs to just edge it over their London rivals. Tottenham 2, Chelsea 1.”
The kick-off time for Tottenham vs Chelsea is 9 pm, Nigerian time.
