Our match prediction:
Following a shocking 2-1 loss to Monaco at Wembley Stadium in their Champions League opener, Tottenham Hotspur take on Sunderland on day 5 of the new Premier League campaign. The Spurs impressed in a 4-0 win over Stoke City at the weekend and it has to be noted that Harry Kane scored his first goal of the season against the Potters. Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino has a number of top-class players to choose from and there is every chance the capital club will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football game. Sunderland suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Everton at the weekend and the Black Cats are unlikely to spoil Tottenham’s party at White Hart Lane. Christian Eriksen produced a fine display against Stoke City and we predict that the Danish midfielder is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders in Saturday’s football match in the capital of England.
Highligted Player (Lloris):
Hugo Lloris is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world of football. The French international was born on 26 December, 1986 and he began his senior career at Nice in 2002. After spending six years with les Aiglons, Hugo Lloris signed a contract with fellow Ligue 1 side Lyon in 2008. The 29-year-old goalkeeper made 146 appearances for the French giants, but in 2012 he moved to London. Tottenham Hotspur completed the deal for the impressive shot-stopper on 31 August, 2012 for a fee of €10 million and €5 million variable and, no doubt, he made a right decision when he decided to join the White Hart Lane outfit. Speaking of his individual awards, Hugo Lloris was named Ligue 1 Goalkeeper of the Year on three occasions (2008/2009, 2009/2010 and 2011/2012). The 188-cm-tall goalkeeper earned his 82nd cap for the French national team in the Euro 2016 final against Portugal. However, Eder’s goal spoiled the party of les Tricolores at Stade de France.
Highlighted Team (Sunderland):
Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000. Red and White shirts are Sunderland’s trademark and the club’s fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation. The Black Cats have won six First Division trophies (now the Premier League), with the team lifting two FA Cup titles. Sudnerland won their first FA Cup trophy in 1937, with the team beating Prestson North End 3-1 in the title game. The club was founded in 1879 as Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C.
