Perfect Pelle and Hurri-Kane in excellent 11/2 double

Coral have the perfect Christmas present for you, and you will likely be saying ‘grazie’ to us after Graziano Pelle and Harry Kane dispatch in a devastating double worth an 11/2 price.

Pelle’s Southampton will be taking on Crystal Palace in this latest Boxing Day bonanza and after dispatching against Everton in the 3-0 win at St Mary’s. He has now scored 11 goals across all competitions this season and will be confident that he can breach the Palace defence. Saints looked back to their best against the Toffees, with the Italian striker’s movement causing problems.

His combination play, plus the on-field relationship he has with Dusan Tadic and Shane Long, could definitely hamper Palace, who were dragged all over the place in the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City. Pelle revealed recently that it was his grandfather, Pipe, who had the effect on his career.

“Pipe drove me to and from the training. He always had the same advice: ‘Graziano, if you don’t shoot, you won’t score’,” Pelle said. He was also a junior ballroom dancing champion, which the player admits has helped his football career.

“I think it was my advantage that I was tall. I could spin more than the other guys,” Pelle continued.

“Balance, discipline, co-ordination; I think I move easy for a tall striker. But it was too hard to combine and the changing from normal shoes to high heels to football boots was killing me, let alone all the training.”

Kane makes up the other half of this sensational scoring special, as his Spurs side take on Leicester City who are rock bottom of the Premier League. The player struck first last time out as the north London outfit beat Burnley, and he now has 12 strikes across all competitions.

The Foxes are leaking goals at the minute, and Kane can comfortably find the net.
