Once the Manchester bragging rights have been allocated, Aston Villa and Tottenham take to our screens to finish off the weekend’s Premier League action and Ladbrokes have a juicy offer up their sleeves.
The firm are boosting Tottenham to win a game in which both teams score out from 3/1 out to 4/1.
Naturally, some punters will be wary of how toothless Villa have been in front of goal of late, going five straight games without finding the net in the Premier League.
Nevertheless fears should be allayed by the fact that during the entirety of Villa’s league existence they have never gone longer than the current barren spell without registering.
Meanwhile, Tottenham’s own defensive frailties have been plain for all to see this season, and never more evident than in their latest top-flight loss to Newcastle.
Seemingly cruising at 1-0 in front at the break, Mauricio Pochettino’s side switched off straight after the restart to let the Magpies back into the game before going on to lose the game 2-1.
However, in midweek the Lilywhites came to life again in the Capital One Cup, brushing Championship side Brighton aside 2-0 to reach the quarter-finals.
It’s not just that timely midweek boost which makes the 11/10 visitors the more likely winners either, as recent history dictates Spurs have got the measure of their second-city opponents.
In their last 11 meetings in all competitions Spurs have gone unbeaten and won on eight separate occasions.
