Our football match prediction:
West Bromwich Albion played out a 1-1 draw with Sunderland on Matchday 7, with the team extending their unbeaten run in the league to three games. The Baggies have been climbing the standings week by week and they occupy ninth position in the Premier League table ahead of the visit of Tottenham Hotspur. The Spurs have been in a scintillating form of late and they are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in the national championship. Harry Kane remains in the recovery room, but Korean winger Son has been producing outstanding displays of late and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Tottenham aim to overtake Manchester City in top position in the standings and they are definitely capable of beating WBA at the Hawthorns. Taking everything into account, we predict that the capital club are going to extend their winning run in the Premier League.
Highlighted Player (Evans):
Originating from Belfast, Jonny Evans is one of the most famous football players from the new generation of the Northern Ireland national team, although numerous injuries prevented the centre-back from showing all he’s got. Coming through the famous Manchester United youth academy, Evans was promoted to the senior set up by club icon Sir Alex Ferguson and he would go on to lift four Premier League trophies with the Red Devils, making over 130 league appearances for the club before moving to West Bromwich Albion in 2015. During his time at Old Trafford, the defender usually played back up to Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, but made quite a few appearances in important games, including 31 Champions League outings. As soon as he was given a chance to impress at Manchester United, Evans was called to the Northern Ireland national team and he has made over 40 appearances on international stage since 2006, helping his country qualify for the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham Hotspur):
Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings. Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title. Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1). The likes of David Ginola, Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Gary Lineker, Luka Modric, Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale are star players that used to play for the White Hart Lane outfit in the past.
