Spurs vs Stoke - betting preview with Marathonbet
07 November 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs have won three matches on the trot in all competitions and will look to continue that when they face Stoke City on Sunday.
The Potters arrive without a win in three games, a run which extended when Mark Hughes’ side let slip a two-goal lead at home to West Ham United last week.
With 10 goals so far this term including his first in the Premier League to clinch a dramatic late win at Villa last week, Harry Kane will be confident of continuing his fine recent form against the Potters. The young Englishman is priced at 4/1 to score first, or evens to find the back of the net anytime.
However, with Stoke managing a goal in all but three games in all competitions this season, Hughes’ side will feel they can take something from the game given their bevy of attacking options.
Mame Biram Diouf has looked a shrewd signing since arriving from Hannover and, with three Premier League goals to his name already, is expected to lead the Stoke line. However, it should be noted that three of the last four meetings between the pair have seen one team fail to score.
Additionally, Spurs did the double over Stoke last season, winning 3-0 at home and 1-0 at the Britannia. A repeat Tottenham Hotspur win to nil victory therefore seems a plausible outcome and can be backed at 9/5.
