Spurs want to keep climbing
This Sunday Tottenham and Sunderland play against each other in the English Premier League. While the guest team can currently found on the bottom part of the ranking, the “Spurs” have worked their up the standings. Kick-off is September 18 at 5.30 PM.
Current form Tottenham Hotspur
Slowly but surely last year’s third placed team is picking up speed. At least in Premier League that is, because internationally they started their Champions League come back with a bitter and a little bit unlucky 1:2 loss at home against AS Monaco. The “Spurs” want to make up for that loss in the fifth round of Premier League. After they started mediocrely into the season (only 1:1 against Everton) Verthongen and Co. have worked their way up. They won against Crystal Palace in the second round without a convincing performance. A week later it was even better against FC Liverpool and Tottenham managed to draw in the Merseyside-Derby. Last weekend they played their best game so far. Stoke City didn’t stand a chance and lost at home 4:0 to the “Spurs”. Tottenham seems to have found back to old strengths on offense. Mauricio Pochettino’s team again played steady defense just like in the games before Stoke City as well. Additionally Tottenham wants to keep a series going. Despite the fact that they are currently “only” ranked fifth, they haven’t lost a game yet in league play. Since Sunderland is struggling and White Hart Lane is a real fortress, the series should still be alive after Sunday’s game.
Current form AFC Sunderland
The times when AFC Sunderland could be found in the upper part of the ranking in the Premier Legaue seem to be gone. They already had to fight against relegation last season and this year David Moyes’ team is struggling again. Sunderland has only scored one meagre point in four rounds so far, which means that they lost three out of four games. The most recent loss came last weekend against Everton. They bitterly lost 0:3 at home in Stadium of Light. Romelu Lukaku pretty much defeated Sunderland by himself and scored a hattrick. The Moyes-Eleven is the underdog again against Tottenham. Currently only Stoke City is ranked behind Sunderland, even though the season opener against Manchester City was promising, when they only received the deciding goal at the end of the game. What followed was a loss at home to promoted team Middlesbrough though. At least Moyes’ team was able to win the EFS-Cup game against Shewsbery (1:0), which is their only win in a competitive game this season. The draw at FC Southamoton (1:1) was a decent game. But Sunderland especially struggles on offense. Three scored goals in four league games is anything but great. So it will be pretty hard against the stable defense of Tottenham.
The roles are clear cut in this game. While Sunderland hasn’t won a game in Premier League yet, Tottenham is performing better and better lately. The loss in Champions League to AS Monaco should only be a small hick up. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
