After a stuttering start Spurs look to have got their season up and running with impressive back to back victories.
Last weekend Spurs put three past Everton at Goodison Park to bag all three points and did the same at Wembley against Dortmund in the Champions League – Yes Spurs won at Wembley.
Although Tottenham were a little fortuitous in their opening group game, confidence will be high and rightly so. They’ve finally got that illusive Wembley win in the Champions League and against formidable opponents.
The Swans meanwhile have taken four points from their opening four games and suffered defeat to Newcastle last time out. Paul Clements’ side head to Wembley yet to win an away league game against Spurs in 88 years. Will that change on Saturday? I doubt it.
After a barren August, Harry Kane has been scoring for fun in September. The England striker has netted 30 times in his past 22 matches for club and country, not bad for a one season wonder. It’ll be no surprise if Kane opens the scoring on Saturday, and he’s 2/1 to do so. In fact he’s 6/1 to score a hat-trick.
Wilfried Bony came off the bench for Swansea on Sunday to make his second debut for the club. The Ivorian bagged 26 goals in 54 appearances during his first spell at the Liberty Stadium and is 9/2 to score any time on Saturday.
Swansea also handed a debut to wonderkid Renato Sanches, who joined the Swans on loan from Bayern Munich in the transfer window, but the less said about his display against Newcastle the better.
Clement’s side will have to be at their very best if they’re to get anything from their trip to London on Saturday teatime. Last season they suffered an embarrassing 5-0 hammering, and while I don’t expect a repeat of the same score line I do see Spurs securing all three points. Spurs are as short as 1/5 in places so there’s no value there.
But Spurs win to nil at EVS could be worth a shot.
