Our football match prediction:
Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Stoke City when they host Everton at their White Hart Lane. The Spurs are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to finish the season in top four. Mauro Pochettino’s troops have been impressive on home soil this season and seeing that the Argentine tactician can count on his key players for Sunday’s football game, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Everton did well to beat relegation strugglers Sunderland at home on Matchday 26, but their away record is anything but good and the Toffees are unlikely to spoil Tottenham’s party at White Hart Lane. Harry Kane has been scoring goals for fun of late and we predict that the opposition defenders will have their work cut out for them when facing him.
Highlighted Player (Kane):
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year. The highly rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Spurs mount a serious title challenge for the first time in club’s recent history and he made seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals. Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four camaigns. The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987. The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955. In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
