Away Day Specialists Eye Revenge
Spurs' last 4 top flight games on the road have yielded 4 handsome wins by a combined 18-2 scoreline. And they'll be up for this one.
The stories persist that Spurs can’t get the job done at Wembley despite a sequence of three outings there which resulted in two wins and a draw. Given that even the 0-0 with Swansea owed much to Mike Dean denying two blatant penalties, it seems a bit harsh!
Away from home however, Tottenham are arguably peerless. Their last four Premier League results on the road all ended in pretty resounding victories - 1-6, 1-7, 0-2 & 0-3. No top flight side has matched that sort of away sequence since the 19th century.
Pochettino’s side have total belief away from Wembley and that makes them worth a punt at a best price 9/2 (Betfair) in the -2 handicap market.
Yes West Ham have scuppered the Lilywhites twice recently but if they fall behind here expect Spurs to exact some healthy derby revenge.
