Tottenham v Stoke

Postby Conner99 » Wed Dec 19, 2012 8:52 pm

Tottenham recoved from their loss against Everton by beating Swansea 1-0 ...a goal by Jan Vertonghen was enough to lift them back into 4th place and manager Andre Vilas-Boas gave credit to his players for their patience ..."It was hard work but the one team who were going to win was us with 23 shots and so much possession. Swansea came out on the counter well and the result was uncertain at 0-0 but we deserved to get the result."


Stoke kept their unbeaten home record with a 1-1 draw against Everton , the Potters were the more likely side to win the game ...but in the end it was even stevens .

Stoke are going to have their only counter attacking threat pinned back by the pace of Lennon and a possibly fit Bale who is back in training after recovering from a hamstring injury which will force them to play extremely defensively and more than likely have the same result as their last encounter where the first goal was scored in the 75th minute.

Interestingly Stoke only allowed an Everton team who have scored 28 goals in 17 Premier League matches a single shot on target in their last match and only conceded from an extremely unfortunate Shawcross own goal.

Stoke have by far the best defensive home record in the Premier League having conceded just 3 goals in 8 home matches which highlights just how difficult they are to break down when they park the bus.

It is likely that as the match going into the latter stages and Tottenham push for the winner that they will leave themselves exposed at the back where they have conceded in 14 from their 17 league matches.

William Hill are currently offering 13/10 on Stoke to either win or draw (double chance) which will come in greater than the 44% of the time required to be profitable and the draw can be had at a very enticing 3/1 with SkyBet.

Starting to get a few of our key players back from injury now! It hasnt been mentioned much if at all but we have had a bit of a injury crisis so far this season, not in numbers but in quality of players.

Ekotto, Parker back this week I think. Bale hopefully back from his short layoff, dont know too much about Kabouls injury at the moment though.

Tough match this, I hope our team keeps their head and sticks to the gameplan in the face of Stokes 'tactics'.

2-0 Spurs.

Do you think its possible Pickleman that the partnership between Adebayor and Defoe just isn't working?

Just when Tottenham appear to be on the verge of breaking into the top 4 something always seems to go wrong!
