Son of a Gun – He’s Done it Again in Premier League!

Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Leicester City

I said if this Premier League encounter ended goalless that I’d eat my hat!

Now I don’t actually have a hat us fans but I meant what I said simply because these two are attacking-minded sides.

Even without the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and, surprisingly Jamie Vardy – kept on the bench for a reason yet to be made public – it was hard to see a stalemate, especially as there’s only been one goalless draw in the 97 league fixtures between Spurs and Leicester. That came in the second tier of English football in March 1948.

Highlights of the game

As well as the absence of Vardy, there was another unexpected change for the Foxes when Papy Mendy sustained an injury in the warm-up and was replaced by Wilfred Ndidi.

The late disruption didn’t seem to affect them as they created two early chances with Harry Maguire forcing Hugo Lloris to tip the ball over the bar before promising youngster Harvey Barnes fired narrowly wide after being played in by debutant Youri Tielemans.

It was Maguire who had helped earn Leicester a point 11 days earlier at Anfield and Spurs would have been well aware that they have taken points off many of the established big six so far this season.

As far as Premier League 2019 betting odds are concerned, Spurs are distinct outsiders in the title race but want to be in a position to pounce should the top two slip up.

Twenty minutes in and Kasper Schmeichel, a real talent in the mould of his father – recently voted the Premier League’s greatest ever goalkeeper – produced a top-drawer save to deny Danny Rose.

Schmeichel was powerless to prevent the deadlock being broken in the 33rd minute, however, when Christian Eriksen delivered the ball into the danger zone and Davinson Sanchez powered home a header.

It was his first goal for the club following his 2017 summer move from Ajax.

Into the second period and Leicester went close to an equaliser.

Demarai Gray, playing the lone frontman, headed straight at Lloris after a good ball from Ricardo Pereira and then shot at the keeper after good work from Ben Chilwell.

As promising as Gray is and, as enterprising as the likes of Chilwell and James Maddison are, visiting fans must have wondered what if Vardy had been on the pitch.

Moments later he was, just as Jan Vertonghen bundled over Maddison.

The scene seemed set but it must always be difficult to come onto the pitch and be thrust under the spotlight.

He entered the fray and saw the resulting spot-kick, his first touch, parried away by Lloris.

It was to prove a pivotal moment.

Within minutes, Leicester had surrendered possession and the ball made its way to Eriksen who produced a long-range trademark special from 20 yards which left Schmeichel with no chance.

Tottenham Hotspur took advantage of Jamie Vardy's absence in the first half

Vardy was desperate to make amends and played in Barnes, who tested Lloris, before he reduced the arrears himself, expertly converting a pinpoint Pereira cross.

The Foxes deserved their goal and were pressing for an equaliser when Spurs sealed the contest in stoppage time.

Moussa Sissoko cleared a Leicester corner and, with the Foxes committed to attack, Son Heung-Min raced clear half the length of the pitch to despatch the third.

For the third game in a row, Son had provided another of the Premier League 2019 news stories and was the Spurs hero.

Key statistics

The last five Premier League meetings between these teams have produced 25 goals.

Spurs are without a draw in a Premier League record 30 matches.

They have scored six goals in the last 10 minutes of their past four league games.

Son has scored 10 goals in his past 11 league and cup appearances for Spurs and has scored four goals and set up two in his last three Premier League starts against Leicester.

Fernando Llorente has been involved in 11 goals in his past eight starts for Tottenham in all competitions (nine goals, two assists).

Leicester have lost four of their last five league games.

Over the last seven matches, only bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield have earned fewer points than their tally of four.

Leicester have won just one of their last 16 matches on a Sunday in all competitions (drawn four, lost 11). That solitary victory came against Everton in Claude Puel’s first game in October 2017.

Vardy has been directly involved in eight goals in his last eight league appearances against Tottenham, with five goals and three assists.

147 different players have scored for Spurs in the Premier League (level with West Ham).

Eriksen has assisted 57 Premier League goals since his debut in 2013.

What’s next?

Spurs welcome Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund to Wembley in midweek as the Champions League knockout stages resume.

They then have 10 days off before a trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on February 23.

That is before a massive week with league doubles against arch rivals Chelsea and Arsenal.

It’s nearly a fortnight before Leicester play again.

It’s two home games in four days then for the Foxes who entertain Crystal Palace (February 23) before welcoming Brighton to town (February 26).

Premier League: Can the Inconsistent Foxes Raise Their Game Again?

Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City

If this Premier League clash ends goalless, I’ll eat my hat!

For here are two attacking-minded sides who have not only produced some of the Premier League 2019 highlights between them but also produced 21 goals in their last four top-flight clashes.

Form-wise, Leicester were unfortunate not to claim a point against Manchester United last weekend and after taking a fine point at Anfield a few days earlier.

They may have lost the preceding three games, including an embarrassing FA Cup defeat at Newport, but they seem to find their mojo when they are up against the heavyweights: they have taken seven points from three matches against the top two and Chelsea this term.

Meanwhile, injury-hit Spurs have bounced back from exiting both domestic cup competitions in the span of four days with successive home victories over Watford and Newcastle.

Although unlikely, they even got an outside chance of winning the title.

Talking Points

While Harry Kane and Dele Alli are both back in training, this game is too early for both. Meanwhile, Eric Dier is out with a virus and Ben Davies is missing due to a groin injury.

In Son Heung-Min, however, the home side has a player who is in fine form and has sparked their last two victories after returning from South Korean duty at the Asian Cup.

He has scored nine goals in his last 10 league and cup appearances for Spurs and has scored three and set up two in his last two Premier League starts against Leicester.

He also had a hand in 14 goals in his last 11 starts in the Premier League, scoring 10 and assisting four.

In Kane’s understudy, Fernando Llorente, Spurs also have a frontman who has been involved in seven goals in his past eight appearances in all competitions (five goals, two assists).

Leicester, meanwhile, could give a debut to new loan signing Youri Tielemans. They have a dangerous frontman of their own who enjoys playing against the big boys – Vardy has been directly involved in seven goals in his last seven league appearances against Tottenham with four goals and three assists.

Daniel Amartey and Marc Albrighton are both injured for a side whose back-to-back wins over Chelsea and Man City in December preceded a home loss to strugglers Cardiff City, suggesting the Foxes are better suited for bigger games.

How underrated manager Claude Puel would love to end that inconsistency.

History

In this fixture last season, on the final day of the campaign, the sides produced a thriller which resulted in Spurs sealing third spot in the table.

That spectacle and a 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium in December, in which Heung-Min and Alli were on target, maintained Spurs’ recent good record against the Foxes – they have only been defeated once in their past six meetings.

Despite the inconsistencies in form, Jamie Vardy remains Leicester’s attacker scoring 7 Premier League goals this season

Jamie Vardy shoots the ball during their match against Manchester United

That one loss came last season when Leicester triumphed 2-1 with Vardy and the now-departed Riyad Mahrez finding the net.

Indeed, since returning to the Premier League in 2014, Leicester have conceded 22 goals against Tottenham Hotspur – more than against any other team.

Yet Leicester have what Spurs crave – a Premier League title – and a pivotal moment in that unforgettable campaign came in a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane in January 2016.

Spurs finished second that season, and some of their fans have had a dislike for Leicester ever since they were pipped to the post and missed out on what they know was a glorious opportunity.

It will come as no surprise to us fans that the mighty Spurs have won 55 of their meetings with Leicester, enjoying 35 triumphs and 21 draws.

The sides have met 25 times in the Premier League, each winning 10 games.

Betting Tip

??
Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City Draw 1×2 @3.60
February 10, 21:30 (GMT+8)

Leicester City have lost all three of their games against Spurs at Wembley. As well as last season, they were the defeated side in 1961 FA Cup Final and the 1999 League Cup Final.

With Premier League 2019 betting odds, Spurs naturally start as favourites and are priced 1X2 @ 1.70 with Leicester @ 4.90.

Asian Handicap betting follows a similar path with Leicester + 0.50 @ 2.29 and Spurs an attractive -1.00 @ 2.23.

For more goals galore, over 3.00 goals offers odds of @ 2.38 and total goal 4-6 @ 3.40.

The Double Chance of Leicester or Draw @ 2.07 has a certain appeal, while a repeat of the North Londoner’s 2-0 success in December with the correct score is available @ 8.00.

Given it has now been 29 league games since Spurs last played out a draw – only Portsmouth, between March 1928 and February 1929 (38 games) have gone on a longer run – my prediction may surprise you.

Despite not picking up many points of late, Leicester are playing well and Spurs may also have one eye on their home Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund three days later.

A SHORT EXPLANATION ON HOW OUR (??) BETS ARE WORTH:

Premier League: Six Goal Spurs are in the Race!

Everton 2-6 Spurs

Spurs ran riot on Merseyside this afternoon, giving Everton six of the best and sending a clear message to their Premier League title rivals. Mauricio Pochettino’s men are definitely in the race.

Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane scored two each to send Spurs fans into a winter wonderland and with high hopes for 2019.

A surprise defeat for Chelsea, at home to Leicester City, confirmed Spurs would be in third place on Christmas Day and this win took them to within two points of Manchester City in second. After a fascinating set of results this weekend it may be worth taking another look at the Premier League 2018 betting odds. Spurs are going well and their odds are dropping fast. And with a kind set of fixtures coming up they could gather some serious momentum.

Highlights of the game

In a bright start to the game, there were chances at either end. Richarlison has been in scintillating form for the Toffees but he should have done better with a headed chance early in the game, nodding wide when completely unmarked. And then Harry Kane had a chance to lob Jordan Pickford but his effort also drifted wide.

Then the floodgates opened and it was former Arsenal man Theo Walcott who put the Toffees ahead. Dominic Calvert-Lewin made a strong run before pulling the ball back to Walcott who fired home from ten yards. The Goodison faithful celebrated, blissfully unaware of what was to come.

Jordan Pickford is probably still having nightmares after his injury time howler which gifted Liverpool three points in the Merseyside derby, but the way Spurs equalised won’t help the England keeper one bit. Kane chipped a ball over for Son to chase and when Pickford ran into his defender Kurt Zouma that left the Spurs striker free to float a beautiful finish into the far corner of an empty net. And it was 1-2 on 35 minutes when Pickford got a strong hand to a low Son shot, but as the ball bounced out and the Everton defence watched Dele Alli fire the ball home through a forest of legs.

As Spurs began to turn the screw Kieran Trippier had a chance from a free-kick which he expertly curled onto Pickford’s near post, and this time Kane benefited from the rebound.

Everton desperately needed to score next, but they didn’t! And it was the pick of Spurs’ goals when Kane’s cross was headed out to Christian Eriksen some 20 yards out and he fired a sweet half-volley into the bottom right corner. The Toffees briefly thought they were back in the game when Gylfi Sigurdsson fashioned a chance for himself, evading three defenders before firing low beyond the reach of Hugo Lloris.

That was on 51 minutes but soon after the hour mark, it was 2-5. Erik Lamela fired a superb pass into the feet of Son and he finished calmly through Pickford’s legs. Spurs were playing with such pace and fluency by now that the Everton players could only participate as bystanders at times. And when Son crossed for Kane, the England skipper shaped himself and diverted the ball into the far corner.

Spurs are on the march.

Key Statistics

Pochettino’s hot shots started the game at us odds of 2.29 to win, and that looked fantastic value with well over half of the game still to play.

After Everton went ahead the visitors blew them away with three quick goals and they won the second half by the same scoreline. That’s nine wins in eleven away games for Spurs, and the first defeat in six at home for the Toffees.

Spurs are still the only team in the league without a draw, winning fourteen and drawing four.

Harry Kane has scored four consecutive braces against Everton and Eriksen has scored in the last three meetings.

What’s next?

The league table makes for nice reading for Spurs fans as they head into Christmas and they’ll be ready and raring to go again after a short holiday. We’ll be here with all the Premier League 2018 updates and watching Pochettino’s team very closely.

Spurs are at home to Bournemouth and Wolves and then away to Cardiff on New Years Day in a hectic schedule, but they can certainly hope for nine more points.

The Toffees are in the bottom half of the table and have a trip to Burnley on Boxing Day. That won’t be easy against a side fighting hard to get out of a relegation scrap. Then they go away to Brighton before entertaining Leicester City on New Years Day, and the Foxes have just beaten Chelsea of course.

Premier League: Super Spurs Give Maurizio the Blues

Spurs 3-1 Chelsea

Spurs ended Chelsea’s unbeaten Premier League record tonight in spectacular fashion, leapfrogging the Blues into third place in the process.

We are safe enough making a promise that we’ll see good football in our Spurs vs Chelsea predictions, and that’s never going to be in doubt with the talent on show at Wembley. But it’s fair to say it was Spurs who stole the show with three goals, the pick from Heung-Min Son and a world-class performance from Christian Eriksen.

Highlights of the game

Spurs found it hard going in their last game before the international break, beating Crystal Palace 0-1, and I bet they couldn’t believe just how easily they swept the Blues aside in the opening exchanges to go 2-0 up after 16 minutes. Chelsea defender David Luiz didn’t cover himself in glory with either. First, he fouled Harry Kane just outside the box, giving Christian Eriksen a good chance to whip a dangerous ball in. That’s exactly what he did, and Dele Alli did the rest by getting the faintest of flicks on the ball to make sure keeper Kepa was beaten.

Christian Eriksen along with Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli produced a fine offence in the Premier League

Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier trying to stop Chelsea’s Eden Hazard

Eriksen is such a key player for Spurs with admirers across Europe, notably at Real Madrid. Minutes later, he played a great return pass to Heung-Min Son who blasted over when he was clean through. But Spurs were two up soon enough when Harry Kane took a pot shot from all of 25 yards. Luiz inexplicably stepped away from the shot and Kepa stayed rooted to his spot as it flew into the net.

Eriksen continued to be at the heart of Spurs’ attacking threat and he crossed for Juan Foyth, but Kepa made the save this time. And after Eden Hazard had forced Hugo Lloris into a smart save, Eriksen was there again, playing a beauty of a ball to Son, who saw his first-time volley brilliantly kept out by the Chelsea stopper.

Maurizio Sarri has made a fine start of his coaching career at Chelsea, but he was maybe starting to regret his jibes at Spurs’ inability to win a trophy by half-time, saying Chelsea would never put up with such a lack of success.

Heung-Min Son sealed their win and earns his 50th goal for Tottenham in their Premier League match against Chelsea

Spurs seemed intent on making the former Napoli boss eat his words. Despite the Blues coming out for the second half with greater intent, the Wembley crowd was on its feet again on 54 minutes when the hosts made it 3-0. And it was an absolute beauty. Dele Alli started a counter-attack with a sweeping ball, and Son outpaced Jorginho before turning Luiz inside-out and unleashing an unstoppable shot that curled past Kepa and into the far corner of the net.

The Spurs fans were in dreamland.

Harry Kane had a chance to send them into further delirium, but he skied his effort from just six yards when everyone in the stadium expected the net to bulge.

Chelsea did have something to cheer for on 85 minutes when Olivier Giroud nodded home, but it was just a consolation.

Key Statistics

We predicted a tight game in our us tips, but hey; we can’t be right all of the time!

Spurs have responded well to defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City and have gone on a five-match winning run. Harry Kane made it nine goals in his last 11 games for Spurs as the hosts ended Chelsea’s unbeaten run.

This is the Blues’ first away defeat in nine games, and they had won the last four games against Spurs at Wembley. In fact, the last time Spurs beat Chelsea here was in the 2008 League Cup final.

Heung-Min Son’s brilliant goal was his 50th in all competitions for Spurs to round off a perfect day for the hosts.

What’s next?

These two teams have a responsibility to fly the flag for London, and Spurs certainly did that!

The Whites now have two massive games over the next week, mouth-watering for fans and potentially season-defining. First, they face Inter Milan in the Champions League. Pochettino’s men desperately need a win to keep up their hopes of progress. Then it’s the North London derby at the Emirates where Unai Emery’s Arsenal are on an excellent run of their own.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have two rather less glamorous games to look forward to. First, they have a Europa League tie with PAOK Salonika to contend with. Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham visit the Bridge next, fresh from the new boss’ opening-match win. Will Claudio come back to haunt his old employers? Who knows? But you can get all your Premier League 2018 updates as they happen right here at us.

Goals Galore, Great Football Games and a Riot!

We’ve had it all in the Premier League this weekend: fantastic action, 29 goals, injury scares and shameful fan behaviour at West Ham. Just another day in England hey!

Premier League betting threw up few surprises with the big six, Liverpool apart, fairing well. Meanwhile, it’s heating up at the bottom end, and those of us planning to bet online on England in the World Cup collectively winced when Harry Kane went off injured.

Stoke City 0-2 Manchester City

After watching Manchester United beat Liverpool in the weekend opener, City closed this round of games with a classy win in the Potteries. David Silva brilliantly finished off two wonderful moves that were enough, though Raheem Sterling should have made it three. Stoke stay in big trouble in 19th.

Bournemouth 1-4 Tottenham Hotspur

Junior Stanislas gave the Cherries a shock lead on the south coast, but the only other surprise was that Harry Kane wasn’t on the scoresheet as Spurs hit four, Heung-Min Son bagging a brace. All the talk is of Kane limping out of the ground with another ankle injury…oh no!

Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace

Chelsea stay in the Champions League hunt after a deflected Willian shot and a Martin Kelly own goal put the Blues in charge at Stamford Bridge. Patrick van Aanholt’s injury-time reply wasn’t enough to lift Palace out of the drop zone.

Arsenal 3- 0 Watford

The Gunners got back to winning ways as former Dortmund buddies Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan added to Shkodran Mustafi’s early opener. Troy Deeney missed a penalty for the Hornets on a welcome good day for Arsene Wenger.

West Ham United 0-3 Burnley

Arsenal fans can be grumpy at times but the Hammers’ crowd was on a different level as things turned ugly at the London Stadium. The game was halted by pitch invasions as Burnley destroyed West Ham in a blistering second half. Chris Wood scored two after Ashley Barnes hit a peach to open the scoring.

West Bromwich Albion 1-4 Leicester City

It’s looking grim for the poor Baggies as a sixth successive loss leaves them eight points from safety at the foot of the table. Jamie Vardy scored a lovely goal and Riyad Mahrez was in fine form as Leicester’s star men seem happy to play for their current manager, as they battle with Burnley for seventh place.

Everton 2-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

The Toffees can’t buy a win away from home but they’re impressive at Goodison Park, this time beating an in-form Brighton side thanks to expensive signing Cenk Tosun getting his first goal on home soil. Chris Hughton’s Seagulls are almost safe on 34 points.

Newcastle United 3-0 Southampton

The big winners in the relegation scrap this weekend were the Magpies who moved up to 13th after an impressive win which left the Saints just a point above the drop zone. Brazilian Kenedy, who has been a godsend for the Geordies, scored a double while the lively Matt Ritchie added one.  That defeat saw the end of Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino.

Huddersfield Town 0-0 Swansea City

Carlos Carvalhal celebrated this goalless draw like a win after his ten Swans held out for over 80 minutes, following Jordan Ayew’s early sending off. The Terriers’ survival hopes have been helped by some vital wins, but failing to score with 81 percent possession isn’t a good sign. They’re still fighting for their lives, though.

Kane To Notch A Brace Leads Betting At 9/2

Leicester could move into the top half of the table with victory over Spurs at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night. Spurs, meanwhile, are cosy in second place with their pursuit of Chelsea fading into irrelevance as their chase of the Foxes did last season.

Having waved an emotional goodbye to White Hart Lane at the weekend, Spurs must return to normality for this fixture. Victory over Manchester United was efficient, but the news that Danny Rose is ruled out until at least the start of next season is a blow and talk of Kyle Walker leaving the club this summer is growing.

Leicester fought and were unfortunate to succumb to a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend. The 2015/16 champions have suffered with injuries of late and could be without Andy King, Robert Huth and Wes Morgan as well as Nampalys Mendy and Danny Drinkwater.

This is a clash of two teams with the form book in their favour. Spurs have only failed to win once in their last 11 Premier League outings, while Leicester have won their last five at the King Power and will be particularly keen to finish a tough season strongly. Spurs are still marginally odds on at 17/20, however, and possess the league’s best defensive record. Mauricio Pochettino’s Lilywhites to win to nil is a good option at 31/10.

Despite a decent home defensive record of late, Leicester’s makeshift back line was fortuitous not be ripped apart by Manchester City during the first half on Saturday and face a Spurs attack that is white hot at the moment. Dele Alli, Heung-min Son and Christian Eriksen are finding space with ease and Harry Kane continues to finish from even a whiff of a chance. Kane to score a brace – as he looks to give himself a shot at the golden boot on the last day – at 9/2 has to be worth a penny or three.

Spurs have been the dominant Premier League side during the second half of the season and, while Leicester have been resolute against the top six of late, the Foxes will find it tough to suppress the Lilywhites. Pochettino’s team are a balanced, well-oiled unit and look capable of brushing even the league’s best aside. Far from full strength, it could be a long night for Leicester.

Spurs have been the dominant Premier League side during the second half of the season and, while Leicester have been resolute against the top six of late, the Foxes will find it tough to suppress the Lilywhites. Pochettino’s team are a balanced, well-oiled unit and look capable of brushing even the league’s best aside. Far from full strength, it could be a long night for Leicester.
