Tottenham's Stellar Defense Put to the Test by EvertonPublished March 5, 2017 by Florin P
Tottenham strives to maintain invincibility at home when Everton comes visiting (1:30 p.m UK Time).
Tottenham crashed out from the Europa League after a dismal home performance against Gent. 10 points behind Chelsea, they don’t have a real shot at winning the trophy, but they will keep on trying. The top priority is to consolidate their place as runners-up and in order to do that, they need to defeat Everton. The visitors are a tough nut to crack and the most in-form team in the entire Premier League.
An Epic Duel Between Kane and Lukaku
Since Harry Kane returned from his injury, he clawed his way back to the top of the list featuring the most successful goal scorers. Another player that leapfrogged several offensive players is Lukaku, Everton’s best footballer. They are currently tied for the first place with 17 goals each, most of those being the first goals in the match for Everton, respectively Tottenham.
Both teams depend on how these two amazing strikers perform and they are well aware of the threat they pose. A lot of effort will be invested into stopping them in their tracks and rough tackles should not be ruled out. They understand perhaps better than any other Premier League importance of neutralizing the two footballers.
Tottenham Seeks to Extend Invincibility
The hosts are the only team in the English first division yet to lose a match at home. Since Everton won just four times in 13 matches on the road, Tottenham can expect to extend its invincible run. This will come at the expense of the offensive, with everyone relying on Harry Kane to score goals. As for the visitors, they understand the importance of snatching one point at White Hart Lane.
The best choice for punters is one that might come as a surprise, given the proficiency ofKane and Lukaku in front of the net. Both teams will assign two players to guard them while exercising extra caution when charging forward. In this context, punters should bet on fewer than 2.5 goals to be scored at odds of 4/5 offered by bet365 Sports.
