? Harry Hotspur’s League Cup Nap

By The Boy -

Bookmaker confidence in Tottenham buoyed somewhat after the result at Brighton and hopefully the Spurs feel the same way about themselves. 



Spurs are 4/9 the win, Watford are as long to 6/1 in places; the draw is 7/2.

You’d not get a sense of the utter deflation there was in the Tottenham camp after the Premier League loss to the Hornets just 3 weeks ago.

It could also be argued that these prices don’t entirely fit with a side that has subsequently lost twice and only win once.



The answer probably lies in the fact that Spurs ‘Expected Goals’ figure took a gentle boost in their last 2 games, even the Inter one.

The threat may have been modest, but it was still there, principally from Lamela, Son and Kane.

Passing accuracy also improved across the board after the final whistle against Liverpool.



Harry Kane is 9/4 First or Last Goalscorer, however Lucas Moura is 5/1 in the same categories. The Brazilian was clearly frustrated at the Amex on Saturday and I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see him wanting to sharply make amends on Wednesday evening.

At the risk of pulling optimism from a place one ought not pull anything from, this could be a great opportunity for Spurs to remind everyone – including themselves – how good they can be.

I maintain that Stadium mk will be a fine venue, and that the atmosphere could be special.


Harry Hotspur’s cup nap is Tottenham 3 Watford 0 is  10/1.
