Tottenham to win with -2 handicap @ 11/4 with Coral

Right now, the season is going the way many expected for Tottenham Hotspur. Maurico Pochettino’s side are as dangerous as ever away from home, but at Wembley, where they are based while White Hart Lane undergoes redevelopment, they are yet to win. Their performances at West Ham last weekend and at APOEL in the Champions League are just two examples of how good they are going forward on the road right now.

With Harry Kane scoring five goals in two games, including his ninth Spurs hattrick, this week, it is clear to see he will be favourite to score at the John Smith’s Stadium. Spurs were excellent for the majority of the game at West Ham and only began to feel the pressure when Serge Aurier was sent off late on. Kane linked up particularly well with the right back, who was able to give the team another attacking dimension as the hosts tried to contain them. With the fullback banned, it may be tougher for Spurs to unlock the door, but because Kane drops deep into space to pick the ball up, allowing Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen to run beyond him, he will create space for himself. Kane is so hard to stop because he scores all kinds of goals, and 12/1 is a good price for a 3-0 away win with him to score first. If he strikes early, it is tough to see Huddersfield recovering.

David Wagner will have a tough task on his hands working out the best way to approach this game. Huddersfield have remained unbeaten so far because of their work rate and ability to press high up the pitch, but doing so against Tottenham, who play in a similar style, may not work. For one thing, it will make it easier for Spurs to play balls directly into Kane or the players surrounding him, but also it will be tough for them to do this with the visitors pressing them into their own half. Using the pace of the likes of Rajiv van la Parra and Steve Mounie to latch onto long balls is probably their best bet of getting a result, certainly at the start of the match.

Key battle: Rajiv van la Parra vs Kyle Walker-Peters

It is not clear who Pochettino will select to replace Aurier, but the most obvious choice is Kyle Walker-Peters. The youngster played very well against Newcastle on the opening day of the season, and will be eager to continue that form.

But he will be the obvious weak spot for Huddersfield to target, and since it will be tough for the likes of Aaron Mooy will struggle to get on the ball in the same way as usual, it will be down to van la Parra to put pressure on the fullback to stop him getting forward to aid Spurs attacks. The Dutchman will also look to get in behind him and supply Mounie, who has not scored since the opening day of the season.
