Tottenham Hotspur will aim to make it a Happy New Year by closing the gap on second-place Manchester United to just three points tonight, as West Brom make the trip to White Hart Lane.

With Manchester City facing Liverpool at the same time, Harry Redknapp will have one eye on the title race – where Spurs can still be backed at an increasingly attractive 14/1. Do you believe yet?

Chelsea may have nicked a point last time out in North London, but Spurs have won six of their other seven games on home turf so unsurprisingly we make them 7/20 favourites to notch up a crucial victory. West Brom meanwhile are 15/2 to spoil the party - and having picked up over 60% of their points away from home, should not be underestimated. The draw is 37/10.

Are you expecting goals tonight? Four straight Spurs games have paid out on Under 2.5 goals and there’s 5/4 on offer for a repeat, while three or more is as short as 4/7. The stats favour a goal glut mind, with around two thirds of Spurs home games and over 77% of Albion away days finishing as Overs.

The Londoners have also been quick starters on their own turf, winning at half-time in five of their six wins at the Lane, so even at 4/5 Harry’s men to be leading at the interval looks a great bet.

Happy New Year!
