The last game of the season sees Tottenham play host to Sunderland, and they are 1.3 with Coral and William Hill to beat the Black Cats and give themselves a chance of a top four finish.

The Lilywhites go into the game in fifth place, just one point and place behind arch rivals Arsenal who travel to St James’ to take on Newcastle.

They need to focus on getting the job done and securing all three points and hope that the Magpies can do them a favour by either beating or holding the Gunners to a draw on Tyneside to enable them to snatch the coveted fourth spot.

If current form and the stats are anything to go by then they should be able to beat the Black Cats.

Sunderland have won just one of their last eight Premier League games against them (L4 D3), and Spurs have suffered just one defeat in their previous 11 league home games against them (W9 D1 L1).

Andres Villas-Boas’ side have also won eight and lost just one of their last 12 PL home games, and it really should be the case of a straightforward victory for them.

Emmanuel Adebayor has scored five goals in his last six league appearances in the month of May, including two in his last two matches, and that makes him of obvious interest in the goalscorer markets.

He is a top priced 5 with Coral and Ladbrokes to net the opener and can also be backed at a tasty looking 2.1 with Stan James to score anytime.

Another interesting stat is that Spurs have found the net in the last 15 minutes in each of their last six league games, and Ladbrokes will give you 2.1 about them making it seven.

Spurs have also only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last 12 league games, while Sunderland have netted in 10 of 11.

That makes both sides to score look a solid bet at even money (2) with bet365 and William Hill.

  1. What a stupid headline. ‘Spurs favourites to pressure Arsenal for fourth spot’. Who else is there in the position to pressurize arsenal this weekend, after all Everton cannot catch either Spurs or arsenal.
