Betting Tip: Over 2.5 Goals
It was peculiar timing for Jose Mourinho’s sacking at Spurs, the day it was announced they’d be involved with the European Super League. It was even odder that his dismissal came less than a week before their league cup final against Manchester City this coming weekend. There’s no doubt that many were calling for Mourinho’s head, something that seemed inevitable for a while as his playing style frustrates fans if they’re not winning.
Spurs have won just a third of their last 21 games seeing them tail off out of the top four and crash out of the Europa League in embarrassing circumstances against Dinamo Zagreb last month. It’s defensively where Mourinho’s downfall has been, we’ve seen him set up his side solidly against some of the bigger clubs but when there’s pressure on them to take games to the opposition their fragilities are highlighted.
With Harry Kane, Gareth Bale and Heung-Min Son available they should probably scoring more than they have and a more positive approach will suit them. Their opponents here have been involved in some high scoring games of late and their own defence has been conceding too many too. 3 against West Brom, 2 against Burnley, 2 against Brighton and 5 against Man City in the last few weeks.
Their 4-4-2 formation adopted by Ralph Hassenhuttl does make for entertaining games, especially when they have Danny Ings available. They’ll be after a response from their semi-final defeat to Leicester at the weekend and you’d expect them to have many more chances against this defence. Over 2.5 goals is therefore the play at 4/5.
