Tottenham Hotspur v Stoke City tips – overrated Spurs too short for win
Tottenham might struggle to break down Potters after Europa League exploits
November 7th, 2014
There are just two points separating these two teams after ten games played this season, with Spurs having lost three of their five games at White Hart Lane.
Victories against Southampton and QPR have been offset by defeats against West Brom, Liverpool and Newcastle United, suggesting that Tottenham are not a backable prospect on Sunday, even at a best price 7/10 with bet365.
Indeed, Aston Villa were in control of Sunday’s match before Christian Benteke was sent off and we know that Mark Hughes will have a game plan to nullify a Spurs side who have never been the same since Gareth Bale left the club.
The big debate raging over Harry Kane is slightly irrelevant considering that the striker’s goals have come against modest opposition although his goal against Asteras on Thursday night should see the England hopeful finally get a Premier League start.
However, Stoke know how to approach these matches as could be seen with their 1-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium this term and betfair offer 5/1 that the visitors spring a surprise by collecting three points.
Conversely, you can choose to back City on the Draw No Bet market at 3/1, with the Potters having led West Ham 2-0 last weekend before the Hammers charged back into the game.
Victor Moses is coming to life under the tutelage of Hughes and we are confident of getting a return by backing West Ham and the Draw on the Double Chance market.
