Premier League 23rd round. Tottenham (3rd, goal difference 45-16) Receives Tuesday (9:45 p.m.) visit “flashlight” Sunderland (agg 20-42), in a duel in which the hosts have to win small share. It’s only natural, after five wins and a draw in last 6 matches played by the two!
Tottenham’s noteworthy superiority when it encounters “black cats”. The tour was just 1-0 on the “White Hart Lane” in the Sunderland match and man was removed. But Sunderland’s previous visits to London I saw scores like 4-1, 2-1 and 5-1. Every time they scored the guests, but their attacking force is represented only by his efforts Defoe. Spurs have 5 wins and a draw in the last six championship games, while Sunderland lost 4 of their last 6 games. And defense is a sore spot in David Moyes’s team and Tottenham should take advantage of this right and away.
Sunderland has 3 consecutive failures in championship
Sunderland lost the last 3 consecutive matches at WBA 0-2, 1-3, 0-2 to Burnley and Stoke. Tottenham has just eliminated it 4-3 Wycombe Cup, match the Londoners were leading 2-0. The return will definitely bring more spirit and optimism in white-blue camp, the form of the moment is clear Pochettino’s team.
Tottenham scored at least two goals in each of his last 7 games. In 6 of its last 7 games they have scored at least three goals, a sign that successful bets can be profitable. Sunderland received at least two goals in each of his last five matches, again an indication that the visiting defenders will have problems with fast players at Spurs. At the moment seems Eriksen, Kane (he has medical problems) and Alli are very difficult to score and Tottenham’s Premier League team most often takes the gate. Judging from past matches, makes it even better: an average of over two goals per game.
Direct meetings between Tottenham and Sunderland
Even if Sunderland would make it a surprise, we do not see how Tottenham can finish the game without scored. Bet “both marks” seems tempted, but Londoners have a solid defense and can keep your opponent at bay. The most likely scores are 2-0 and 2-1 in their favor. Sunderland is not a consistent team, able to maintain the pace throughout the match. Without this physical and mental strength, red and white have little hope at this difficult duel.
Prediction: Over 2,5 goals
