Back Spurs on their big night


There are three more Premier League games on Wednesday but all eyes will be on N17 as Tottenham play their first competitive match at their new stadium.

Tottenham to win and both to score @ 7/4

After originally planning to be in their new home at the start of this season, the Spurs fans finally get to avoid the arduous journey to Wembley when their heroes face a potential banana skin, with Crystal Palace the visitors.

The Eagles have won three of their last four on the road and their counter-attacking style seems to suit playing away. Talisman Wilfried Zaha has been particularly potent, with seven of his eight goals this season on the road.

It would be typical of a big-game player like Zaha to net on Spurs’ big night and he is 3/1 in the anytime market.

However, Tottenham have been waiting a long time for this and should triumph on what could be a dramatic evening.

Chelsea to win to zero @ 5/6

Eleven or so miles across the capital, Chelsea will look to add to their brilliant home record with a win over ailing Brighton.

A controversial 2-1 victory at Cardiff on Sunday again led to chants calling for Maurizio Sarri to leave although Stamford Bridge has been a haven for his side this season, losing just once in the league.

They have also kept clean sheets in six of their last nine on their own patch and take on a Brighton team who fell short in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

Despite being on the winning side in three of their last four, the Seagulls seem to be struggling for consistency and have a poor record against Chelsea, losing all seven of the previous league meetings.

Do not expect anything special here buy maybe look for Eden Hazard to shine after being on the bench against Cardiff. The Belgian has netted three in as many games against Brighton and is 17/4 to score two or more.

City to win 2-0 @ 11/2

Finally, to the Etihad where Manchester City will be expecting to sweep Cardiff aside and, in doing so, return to the top of the table.

Liverpool’s last-gasp 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday saw the Reds edge ahead again, albeit having played a game more, and City will expect to return the favour, having won their last seven in the league.

They have conceded just twice in that period but the home win to zero seems far too skinny at 1/2, so it is worth having a look at their opponents.

Neil Warnock was less than impressed with the officiating in the defeat to Chelsea and has joked he could play his Under-23s in this game.

That is unlikely but with a poor away record and a big game at Burnley on March 13, Warnock may look to preserve some of his players.

City could themselves chop and change, with an FA Cup semi-final at the weekend, and while they could cut loose, with the games coming thick and fast a pragmatic approach is more likely.
