Tottenham Hotspur v Gillingham tips: Easy win for Spurs on Wednesday night
An easy evening lies in store for Spurs when they face League One side Gillingham in the EFL Cup
September 20th, 2016
Tottenham Hotspur’s third home game in succession looks set to be a thoroughly one-sided affair, given that the visitors to White Hart Lane are a mid-table League One outfit. Indeed, Spurs enjoyed complete dominance over Sunderland in their last outing despite only winning by a single goal and we should witness another solid display from Pochettino’s men on Wednesday evening.
Tottenham’s win over the Black Cats on Sunday could have been a goal-fest for the home side and there is little likelihood that the Spurs boss will want to make many changes to his winning squad.
The Spurs attack will nevertheless be blunted by the absence of Harry Kane who could conceivably be out of action for up to two months following his ankle injury sustained in the weekend Sunderland match, however Wednesday’s fixture could be the perfect opportunity for Vincent Janssen to get his name onto the scoresheet.
He will likely be supported by Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko, both of whom will be eager to impress against a League One side which have managed just a solitary win in their last six league outings, their recent defeats including a 5-0 hammering at Scunthorpe last month.
If Spurs failed to convert their dominance into goals on Sunday against Sunderland, we don’t envisage them having many problems in that department on Wednesday despite the absence of Harry Kane, therefore we’ll be going for Spurs -3 on the handicap market at 16/5 with Paddy Power.
