Click here to bet on a number of markets, including match winner, handicap and first goal scorer.
Spurs have little to aim at
Tottenham’s season is over. They have finished second, with league champions Chelsea 10 points ahead, and only six up for grabs. They’re out of the FA Cup, also eliminated by city rivals Chelsea, and have played their last game at White Hart Lane.
Sunday afternoon’s clash with Manchester United, which ended in a 2-1 win for Pochettino’s men, was their final game at the historic venue, before moving over to Wembley next season. The club plan to play a term’s worth of fixtures there, while a new stadium is constructed on the same site as the lane.
Kane has a shot at golden boot
Harry Kane was on the scoresheet vs The Red Devils, grabbing the winner early in the second-half, and has been a sensation for The Lilywhites this season. The Englishman goes into the midweek just two goals behind the division’s leading scorer Romelu Lukaku, and a strong showing here will give him every chance of finishing on top.
Coral punters can back Kane to break the deadlock at 3/1, while a goal at anytime during play rates as a 4/5 poke. Eager to push the boat out and take a chance on one of the best strikers in the world at the minute? Why not try your luck on the hat-trick at a stunning 16/1.
Mahrez has some making up to do
Leicester go into game 37 of the season in 11th, but with a real chance at finishing in the top-10, which would be an incredible achievement for a side we all thought would be relegated by this point of the season. Craig Shakespeare, who took over from Claudio Ranieri earlier this year under a dark cloud, has given The Foxes their confidence back, and they’ve won six of their last 10.
That run includes wins over West Ham and Watford, and they were last seen on the wrong end of a thrilling 2-1 with Man City on Saturday. Fans will feel like they should’ve got a point out of that meeting with The Citizens, and they’d have a case too, Riyad Mahrez slipping when taking a penalty to have it cancelled out. Referee Bobby Madley ruled the player had struck the ball with both feet on its way to the net, and the replay made it a great call.
Mahrez scored against Tottenham when the clubs met in the first of four games last season, and the Algerian to make up for Saturday’s blunder with a goal here is worth a second look at Coral’s 3/1 quote in the anytime market.
