Tottenham Hotspur v Middlesbrough Preview, Premiership, 4th February 2017

Tottenham Hotspur are having a great season and although they will have been very disappointed with their 0-0 draw away against Sunderland last time out, they did manage to go ahead of their North London rivals Arsenal who were beaten 2-1 at home against Watford.

The hosts are 9pts behind current league leaders Chelsea and this game does provide them with a chance to close that gap with a victory what with Chelsea involved in a tough home fixture against Arsenal earlier on Saturday afternoon and I fully expect Spurs to deliver in front of their home fans.

Middlesbrough are in a fight to survive relegation to the championship and every point from here on in will be crucial what with them just 2pts above the bottom three teams in the league table.

The visitors have not recorded a single victory in any of their last five league games and do face a very difficult task in this match on Saturday evening going up against a side that is playing some of their best football for many years.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News :

Danny Rose is one of five Tottenham players expected to miss Saturday’s game at White Hart Lane. Rose has a knee problem and will see a specialist on Monday while Jan Vertonghen (ankle), Erik Lamela (hip), Georges-Kevin Nkoudou (knee) and Kieran Trippier (hip) are also out.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, however, is available again after he sat out Tuesday’s draw at Sunderland due to illness.

Middlesbrough Team News :

Deadline Day signing Adlene Guedioura will go straight into the Boro squad, while Calum Chambers could also travel. Chambers had returned to training on Wednesday after suffering a fracture in his foot but could not train on Thursday.

George Friend and Gaston Ramirez are both ruled out of the Saturday evening clash, though. Friend is sidelined with a calf injury while Ramirez is in the final throes of recovering from a knee injury.

Tottenham Hotspur v Middlesbrough Head to Head Statistics:

Saturday’s evening game from White Hart Lane will become the 81st meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Tottenham Hotspur have won 29 times overall with 22 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Middlesbrough have managed to secure 31 victories overall with just 9 of those having came away from home.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, the last five recent meetings shows Tottenham Hotspur with a slight advantage having won twice, with Middlesbrough having won once and the remaining two games having finished all square.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

256 Goals have been scored in the previous 80 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 3.20.

138 of those Goals have came in the 40 previous matches played at White Hart Lane and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 1.73.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem suggest that this game should see at least a couple of goals scored in this game and the betting market Total Goals Scored 2 or 3 looking a good choice here.

Tottenham Hotspur v Middlesbrough Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Tottenham Hotspur have a real chance this season to finish above their North London neighbours and arch rivals Arsenal, but for that to happen they need to start winning games like this one, especially having dropped 2pts against struggling Sunderland last time out despite controlling much of the game and having 67% possession of the ball.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son have proven to be quite the strike force this season in the premiership and the Middlesbrough defence will be in for a very busy evening indeed in an attempt to keep either of these players from scoring.

Middlesbrough are just two points above the relegation places and with just 15 games of the season left to play, every point is crucial if they are to avoid being shipped back down to championship football next season.

The visitors have struggled though in recent weeks and have failed to win any of their last five league matches played and it does look a huge task for them in this match on Saturday evening going up against a well organised Totteham Hotspur squad who will still believe they have a chance of catching Chelsea in the race for premiership title.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score & Tottenham Hotspur to Win as although I expect Spurs to win this game, there is still some question marks in their defence with Vertonghen missing through injury and I can see Middlesbrough getting at least one goal here.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Tottenham Striker Harry Kane to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as he will see this game as a real chance to close the gap on both Deigo Costa and Alexis Sanchez who are currently leading the way as top goalscorers this season with 15 goals.
