Spurs travel to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke and look a decent bet at 1.91 with bet365 and Ladbrokes to come away with a vital three points.

Victory is a vital in their battle for a top four finish, and they come into the game having shown great resolve to twice come from behind at secure a draw against Chelsea in midweek despite Gareth Bale not being at his best.

They face a side who lost 10 of their first 13 games of 2013, but have since won two in three to get them back into the middle of the table.

The Potters are also unbeaten in their last three Premier League clashes with them (W1 D2), so it’s not going to be easy for the Lilywhites.

However given the importance of a victory I am sure that Andre Villas-Boas will have his men up for the challenge and they are taken to make their class tell and come out on top.

Bale may have failed to get on the scoresheet against Chelsea, but he has scored in 10 of Spurs’s 18 away games this season and looks worth sticking with in the goalscorer markets.

He can be backed at a best of 5 with Coral and Ladbrokes to bag the first and a tasty looking 2.15 with sportingbet to net anytime.

The latter looks particularly good value given that he is as short as 1.73 with other firms.

Another interesting stat is that all four Premier League clashes between these two teams at the Britannia have ended 2-1 (two wins apiece).

That suggests that the 10 on offer with Stan James about a 2-1 win for Spurs in the correct score market is well worth considering.

  1. I am life long white shirt fan but I know dat de Arsenal are a muuch betta teem than we white shirt. Stoke are big and strong like African man and will crush us white shirt like ants. We can still win da legue though so keep da faith you white shirt!

    • Is this a joke? To be fair, I like our squad at the moment. I would take Bale, Walker, Lloris and Vertonghen over anything they have. Although their front line is formidable with Giroud and Walcott heading it up. I would take Arteta on our team in a heartbeat over little scotty. Their midfield is pretty strong. I believe Koscielny is one of the best defenders in the league, but Bale is the PFA and Lloris is better than Szesny however the hell you spell his name by a mile. It’s our midfield and defense that let us down. We can’t control games for long enough periods of time to allow cover for our back line. We need to do it this year because I feel this is the worst they are going to get for a long time, and this is the best we’re going to be. Sad but true. I’m a pessimistic fan, but this is what I have some to expect.

  2. Bale is like rvp to arsenal last season just not as great; equally expensive cos he’s younger and ‘british’…frankly it’s not looking top 4 if u r honest…never say never but…

    1 game at a time

    Avb dropped the ball – buck stops with the gaffer – in the run up or this situation wouldn’t happen would it?

  3. They have the prestige we crave. But it would be so satisfying to snatch it once. Would enjoy it for a whole year!
