Tottenham to Win at odds 1.83
QPR vs Tottenham
Manager Harry Redknap is coming to face his old club for the first time since departing in the summer. Tottenham have found their feet in the league and rest in the 3rd place, behind Manchester clubs.
Last Match away to WBA. Drew 1-1 in the FA Cup on 5th Jan. Before that they won away at Chelsea 0-1 .
QPR home form is 1-2-3 (DLDWLL) . Team is rather unblended. Mbia is used as a MF when he is a defender. No good strikers . Tarabatt is the best player. GS-GC is 6-11. On a 2 match home DL streak.
Strength- Coming from a moral boosting victory over Chelsea (A) and a draw at Euro League hopefuls WBA (which was a near full strength ) in the FA cup.
Tottenham welcome back explosive winger Gareth Bale back into the fold since he missed the last match after accumulating 5 yellow cards. Adebayor will be absent from the match cause of international duty. Hotspur’s height advantage in set pieces will be crucial as Vertongen
is significantly taller than the defensive line of QPR.
Tottenham go for broke in the away matches. They haven’t drawn the away matches yet, going for the win rather and keep working on. AvB’s teams concentrate on defence higher up the field and it has two attacking fullback and two speed wingers in shape of Naughton/Bale on the left & Walker/Lennon on the right. The Centre defence is of Vertongen
On paper and current form, Tottenham is no doubt the stronger of the two sides. It should be noted that Mark Hughes even managed to get a draw against Tottenham at White Hart Lane (1-1) but it remains to be seen whether Redknap, who knows this Tottenham inside out will manage to pull one up back on his old team or not ? Like Sam Allardayce pulled a personal victory over his old Newcastle side with the West Ham side, the same can be expected for QPR.
The home side can be backed at a best of 4.57 with Pinnacle while the away can be backed at 1.88 with the same bookmaker while the draw is at 3.76 with Bet Fair.
