Tottenham set to heap more misery on sorry Stoke

Tottenham set to heap more misery on sorry Stoke

Tottenham Hotspur visit Stoke City this weekend aiming to strengthen their grip on a top four spot in the Premier League.

Last week's stunning 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge left Spurs eight points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea with just seven games of the season remaining.

However, they must navigate a potentially tricky game on Saturday as they face relegation-threatened Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.

Stoke are priced at 10/1 to win the match, with Spurs on offer at 3/10 and the draw available at 21/5, but check out this Coral New Customer Offer before wagering on the outcome.

Toby Alderweireld is available for selection but he has been overlooked by manager Mauricio Pochettino in recent weeks as speculation continues over his future.

Harry Winks remains sidelined, but Harry Kane is in contention to start after returning to action against the Blues.

Stoke defender Kurt Zouma is doubtful for the game, while Konstantinos Stafylidis, Lee Grant, Mame Biram Diouf and Eric Choupo-Moting are definitely out. Charlie Adam also misses out through suspension.

Spurs have won four on the spin against Stoke, racking up 17 goals in the process, and their recent form suggests they can put Paul Lambert's side to the sword this weekend.

Over 2.5 goals for Spurs can be backed at 13/10 and that looks a tempting wager.

The Potters have lost each of their last eight meetings against the Big Six, with their opponents recording a win to nil in six of these including each of the last four.

Stoke have conceded more goals than any other side so far this season and Kane will fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet at odds of 8/11.

Spurs have been excellent in the league since losing to Manchester City back in December - winning 10 and drawing three of their 13 matches since then.

The last four meetings between these two sides have ended with a four goal winning margin to Spurs and they are as low as 12/1 to win 4-0 on Saturday.

Stoke have won just one of their last 13 games in the Premier League and they remain in serious danger of relegation this term.

Lambert's side are priced at 3/10 to drop into the Championship and it's difficult to see them escaping from trouble.

Spurs are priced at 21/20 to win without conceding this weekend and that looks an extremely solid wager.
