Tottenham v Wycombe Preview
Son Heung-Min is a likely starter and is averaging 0.62 goals per90, fuelled by good shot volumes.
The tactic of backing unlikely starters almost paid off in the last round of fixtures and that is the angle to exploit again in the fourth round. Tottenham have a benign home fixture against Wycombe so expect a similar (and possibly weaker) line-up to the one Mauricio Pochettino put out against Aston Villa in the last round.
Son Heung-Min made the starting line-up and rewarded his manager’s faith with a late second half goal. It was another industrious display from the South Korean who managed four shots on goal and was one of the better players on the day.
The 24-year-old has delivered several useful cameos this season and is averaging 0.62 goals per90 in the Premier League and Champions League. This good goal scoring rate is fuelled by 3.4 shots per90, Harry Kane-type numbers, with 2.3 of them coming inside the penalty area.
With Vincent Janssen misfiring, the value is on Son Heung-Min to open the scoring at 4/1 (Bet365).
