Tottenham’s Champions League fightback victory over PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night gives Mauricio Pochettino’s side a lifeline in Europe, but back home they face a tough trip across the capital to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
It’s a fixture where they have had plenty of recent joy, but have been made to work for their four consecutive 1-0 victories over the Eagles. Spurs are solid enough at the back and potent enough up front to win by the same score line once more, and it can be backed at as high as 7/1 with Betfair.
Harry Kane was instrumental in the comeback win over Eindhoven in midweek, with the England man scoring the equalizer and playing a big part in Spurs’ winner over the Dutch side. He hasn’t quite been at the top of his game in the Premier League this season, but Kane is indispensable in a side that lack a cutting-edge goal scorer in reserve, and scored the winner the last time these two met at Selhurst Park back in February. If you’re backing a first goal scorer in this, you won’t be far off if you back Kane to bag it at 14/5 with BetBright.
You could say Spurs are due a clean sheet after going five matches without one, and if they can nullify the threat of Palace winger Wilfried Zaha then they have a great chance of shutting out the rest of the Eagles. Crystal Palace haven’t scored a goal from open play all season at home, with goals from the penalty spot being their only source of success in the final third. With that in mind, you’ve got to fancy a north London clean sheet on south London territory. A Spurs shutout looks a big price at 7/4 with Coral.
Tiredness could well be the only thing preventing this Spurs side from picking up what look like a regulation three points on Saturday evening, and while I can’t quite see them firing on all cylinders here, I think they’ll have enough about them to manoeuvre a potentially tricky tie. The Tottenham win, under 2.5 goals, and a Harry Kane anytime goal looks like a solid same-game treble at better than 7/1 with Paddy Power.
Premier League Treble: £10 on West Ham (To win at Huddersfield), Brighton (Cardiff City) and Manchester City (Manchester United) returns £88 with William Hill.
