The road to becoming a top-flight club in the Premier League is not easy. Although Tottenham finished 3rd last time around and were Leicester’s main competitors for most of the season, they have to repeat those great performances this year in order to truly be taken seriously.
They showed exactly what they’re capable of against Stoke last weekend – will the Black Cats we able to stop them this time around?
Tottenham vs Sunderland
Although it’s early to speak about relegation candidates, it’s very hard not to pin this name to Sunderland. The weakest attack in the Premier League, very reliant on Defoe (who isn’t 26 anymore for quite a while), only 1 point in the first four games – Sunderland have very few things to be optimistic about.
They are now preparing for a very hard away game – Spurs haven’t lost at home in quite some time – after a rough 3-0 loss against Everton at home. Hopeless? Seems like it.
On the other hand, Tottenham seems to be in control of their own fate at the moment. They are undefeated in the Premier League, just to lose against Monaco in the Champions League, at the end of the game, they dominated easily.
Their current form should be too much for Sunderland to handle. Also, they have quite a few players who really need to start scoring and proving themselves, like Kane, Lamela or Janssen – and a game against the Black cats can be the perfect opportunity for these players to impress.
Tottenham vs Sunderland Betting Tips
Verdict? Home win. Even Tottenham -1 could be an idea. The Spurs will enjoy better ball possession and they will score, and most probably even win.
If you’re looking for a higher odd bet, we believe that Kane will also score in this victory and that Tottenham will win by 2 goals, minimum. Yes, they will do this for the first time this season, but Sunderland hardly looks like a team that can stop them.
Harry Kane Anytime: 1.72 or 8/11
Tottenham (-1): 1.90 or 10/11
