Tottenham host Fulham in tonight’s rearranged fixture as Scott Parker heads back to his former club looking for valuable points in their relegation scrap.
Victory would propel Spurs to third – just four points off leaders Manchester United – despite a recent wobble which had threatened to spoil their momentum.
Ahead of kick-off, we take a look at some of the price boosts on offer with Sky Bet this evening.
The England international will be keen to add to his season tally of 10 goals against struggling Fulham on Wednesday night. Spurs are 8/15 to win the tie at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where Kane has scored 50 per cent of his goals this term. The 27-year-old has nodded two in with his head since the start of the campaign while Fulham have kept just three clean sheets all season, shipping three goals from set piece situations.
Heung-min Son has scored two goals from outside the box this term and comes up against a Fulham side who have not kept a clean sheet away from home all season. Scott Parker’s defence have faced 61 shots from outside the box but not one has found the net – a quirk that surely has to end soon. At home, Spurs average 1.63 goals a match and have scored two or more on five occasions this season.
So what are the odds of Kane bagging a sackful against Fulham? He’s averaging under a goal a game this season and Fulham have one of the tightest defences in the bottom half. Despite that, their habit of conceding goals from inside the box suggests one of Fulham’s weaknesses is crosses, and Jose Mourinho would do well to set up his team to capitalise on that. You can count on Kane to gobble up the chances if Mourinho puts more of an emphasis on width tonight.
