At long last, Chelsea vs. Tottenham day is here. Will the Blues build on all the momentum they have going in to this game, or will fate toss Tottenham a bone?

The only thing that is certain about Chelsea vs. Tottenham today is that this will be a heated, #passion-fueled affair for both side. Regardless of the final score and whether or not that passion turns into something worse, plan on spending 90 minutes on your feet today.

Travis Tyler: Chelsea 2 – 0. All signs point to this being tight and scrappy, so it probably will not be either. Spurs will be shy after blowing their title challenge by playing aggressively and will try to avoid a repeat of the Battle of the Bridge.

Andre Carlisle: 0 – 2. Tottenham. This is the truest test of the black magic yet. It pains me in many ways to predict a loss to this bumbling bunch of leg kicking, title-losing overconfident muppets. However, I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t do it and the worst were to happen. In any case, the match will be rough, annoying, and full of shouty moments. In the end Spurs probably end Chelsea’s run of clean sheets, but the Blues should win. A cozy looking scoreline of 3-1 won’t tell the whole story, but the Premier League table will.

Martin Connolly: 1 – 1. Would love to predict a win but the winning streak has to end sometime. With the top defence in the league coming to Stamford Bridge, I just can’t see there being many goals here. A draw for me.

Elkebir Lamrani: 3 – 0. Expect the most physical game so far this season. Chelsea will score one penalty and two goals from set pieces. Make no mistake, this is a must-win game.

Scott Brant: 2 – 1. Chelsea are favorites to win at -0.5 point to Tottenham, which worries me a little bit. Should be a fairly even match, with the winner barely squeezing out a victory. Hazard and Kane to score.

Daniel Mcclue: 1 – 2. Boy do I hope I’m wrong, but I’m scared. I have a horrible gut feeling that Spurs will get some sort of revenge. Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen will get the goals, while Victor Moses gets a late consolation. Costa finally pops as he and Conte tag team Pochettino and Lamela – a small victory in an overall loss.

Ben Croft: 3 – 1. Chelsea are flying at the moment and I’m expecting nothing less than a victory. Tottenham are struggling but they are still unbeaten in the league so it will be a tough game. Tottenham’s back four without Rose and Alderwiereld will look suspect and the Blue attack will exploit that. Costa, Luiz free kick and Moses to score.

Khaled Abdallah: 0 – 0. Spurs are tough to break down even though they’re struggling up top. They stay unbeaten but slip a little further down the table.

Brendan McDonnell: 1 – 1. All week I was ready to write a scoreline with Spurs coming out ahead, but I just think Conte has the magic potion right now. Chelsea squeaks out a draw. We’ll be talking about Courtois after the match as he’ll be top class.
