Key Battle: Toby Alderweireld v Timo Werner
Spurs have leaked goals in recent weeks so they’ll have to really step up if they’re going to keep Timo Werner off the scoresheet.
Toby Alderweireld will be instrumental in stopping the striker, who is EVS to score anytime. That could be a banker, while with Son Heung-min out injured much of the threat for Tottenham will come from Lucas Moura who is 5/1 at William Hill to score first.
If Mourinho can produce a masterclass, which we all know he’s capable of, a Dele Alli first goal and Tottenham win at 8/1 with Hills looks a good punt.
Our Tip: An even game with BTTS
We expect a close game here with both teams to get on the scoresheet.
The draw can be backed at 5/2 at Coralalthough a draw and BTTS is our preferred punt at 3/1 with the bookmaker.
A Spurs win and BTTS can be enjoyed at 16/5, and could also be worth a punt if you expect them to carry their goalscoring form on from the weekend.
