Match Preview

Tottenham Hotspur is going to look for nothing short of a win following their dreadful 4-2 loss to Bolton. This lose was especially shocking because just a week earlier, Tottenham had demolished European Champions Inter Milan three goals to one. If anything, the loss has exposed Tottenham’s vulnerability in the defense, especially from set pieces. Sunderland is obviously going to capitalize on this and will definitely borrow leaf from Bolton on how to mark the Welshman Gareth Bale, who is always looking to test the keeper.

Steinsson, the Bolton defender had such an easy time marking the Welshman that he even ventured out to attack and put his name in the score sheet. Despite this, Bale is not to be underestimated, as he made amazing runs and even hit the crossbar from a well taken free kick. It may have just been one of those days for him and Sunderland will do well to be wary of him.

Sunderland on the other hand will look to maintain current form having won two goals to nothing against Stoke during the weekend. With Christmas approaching, November will be a grueling month for teams, as fatigue is bound to set in. Playing three games a week is no easy task, but the current crop of energetic players in Sunderland, such as Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan, will definitely help Sunderland pull through this tiring month with maximum points in the bag.

I have to admit that every time he[Gyan] has the ball, he looks more dangerous and is definitely growing in confidence as he plays more and more in the league. His two goals against Stoke are proof to this. Tottenham should be wary and make sure they starve him off the ball.

Line ups for the two teams are unlikely to change from last week and I expect Tottenham to play a 4-5-1 formation with Peter Crouch up front and wing support coming from Bale and Niko Kranjcar. Sunderland on the other hand is likely to play a 4-4-2 formation with Asamoah Gyan and Danny Welbeck up front. Wing support will come from Steed Malbranque and Ahmed El Mohamady.

Betting Tip for Tottenham vs Sunderland

The two sides are placed right beside each other in seventh and eight position with 15 points each. It could be a tight match as well, although Tottenham must be considered the favorites tonight. This said, Sunderland generally does not perform that well away from home, while Tottenham does have a better team. All in all we believe Tottenham will win this one, but likely with only one goal.
