Leyton Orient vs Tottenham: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview

Tottenham Hotspur kick-off their pre-season preparations with the first of their friendly clashes with a trip to Brisbane Road, on Saturday at 3pm BST. 

Leyton Orient vs Tottenham: Predictions

Nuno Espirito will be taking the reins of his new side for the very first time in a friendly game in memory of Justin Edinburgh against Leyton Orient. Spurs will be without the large majority of their star players who have now begun their holidays following their involvements in this summer’s European Championship and Copa America.

Orient already have a couple of games under their belt this week following a 3-0 defeat against Dundee and then a respectable 0-0 draw against David Moyes’ West Ham. However, those games came on the same day and their squad was split in half two make two squads. On Saturday, Jobi McAnuff will have a full squad at his disposal and will be eyeing up a potential shock.

Although Spurs will not have the likes of Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg available on Saturday, there are many players who will be looking to salvage their Spurs career under Nuno. Dele Alli, Matt Doherty and Steven Bergwijn are the three which spring to mind following underwhelming displays in the 2020/21 campaign.

Leyton Orient vs Tottenham: Match Stats

Steven Bergwijn has struggled for game time since arriving in north London and only has one goal to his name in his 51 appearances. It feels like a big season ahead for him and he will be looking to impress under his new manager, Nuno. The Dutchman was left out of Frank de Boer’s Euro 2020 squad having scored just once for Spurs in the 2020/21 Premier League campaign so he goes into this game with a point to prove.

Leyton Orient showed promise in the 2020/21 campaign with a midtable finish. However, there was certainly room for improvement having ended the season with a negative goal difference. The O’s have already shown some sign of improvement in their friendly against West Ham during the week but the 3-0 defeat to Dundee may cause some concerns ahead of their game against Spurs on Saturday.
