Another London derby for Queens Park Rangers hot on the heels of getting walloped 6-0 at Fulham before beating Chelsea 1-0 at Loftus Road. What will be the outcome when the Hoops make the short journey to White Hart Lane?
According to the bookmakers, a straightforward home win looks to be on the cards, with Tottenham quoted at odds of 2/5 (William Hill – £25 free bets) and that is the best price available about Harry Redknapp’s side continuing their impressive run which has seen them land five wins and a draw from their last six Premier League games.
Spurs are full of goals at the moment, scoring twice at Ewood Park last Sunday thanks to Rafael Van der Vaart who is currently being shipped into many fantasy football teams ahead of Sunday’s match. The Dutchman is the penalty taker for Tottenham and can be backed at 11/2 (Victor Chandler – £25 free betting) to score the first goal of the game.
Emmanuel Adebayor will also be looking to fill his boots against opponents that were given a large helping hand by the officials against Chelsea, with QPR making hard work of their 1-0 win against nine men.
Even so, Rangers will arrive at White Hart Lane looking to be a lot more solid than the horror show at Craven Cottage and it should be remembered that Neil Warnock’s side have claimed victories at Wolves and Everton already this season.
The visitors are 17/2 chances to come away from this game with a surprise three points, with Fitz Hall and Anton Ferdinand needing to stand tall as a central defence unit if any kind of result is to be managed against a side that have been purring at home.
