As Harry Kane started banging goals in the 2014/15 season, most of the football fans claimed he’s just a “one season wonder”. Since then, the fairly unknown English lad has become one of the greatest strikers in Europe. He’s netted 105 times in his last 4 Premier League years, as he managed to score 41 goals last season in all club competitions. This season he’s scored 7 goals in 12 matches so far – but can he do that on a rainy Monday night against the champions?
It could be safe to bet on Harry Kane to score
If we look at his statistics, it’s clear that Kane’s a reliable goalscorer. Though Man City are probably the toughest opposition in the league, betting on a Kane-goal is quite realistic, as the odds are 8/5 on the event at Unibet Sportsbook. However, if you would like to win big it’s also possible to bet on Kane to
- score the first goal (5/1)
- score the last one (5/1)
- score a double (9/1)
- hat-trick (50/1)
Kane is the master of header goals
As Man City are almost unbeatable on the ground, Spurs might try with long balls to get in behind their defenders or with crosses to beat them in the air. Christian Eriksen is one of the players who’s crosses are formidable, while we all know how great Kane’s headers can be. In fact, he managed to score 3 times with his head so far this season. This time the odds are 8/1 at Unibet Sportsbook on Harry Kane scoring one from a header.
Scoring from outside the box is a job for Eriksen
As City’s defence is not expected to let Spurs passing around within their box, the Londoners might want to try shooting from distance. The odds are 6/1 on Kane to score from outside the penalty box, and we know that sounds tempting, but we do not recommend betting on that. Last season the striker hasn’t scored from distance at all. Therefore, if you believe Spurs will be dangerous from long shots, you better place a bet on Eriksen. The Danish attacking-midfielder has netted 56 times in his career, and 23 of them were coming from outside the box. The odds on him scoring another screamer are even higher: 9/1 at Unibet Sportsbook.
Others goalscorers to watch
- Sergio Aguero
- Gabriel Jesus
- Raheem Sterling
While Kane’s obviously one of the biggest stars to play on Monday night, some players are even more likely to score – especially on the away side. For instance, there is Sergio Aguero. The Argentinian has scored the second most goals in the league so far this season, and online sportsbook sites in the UK argue he’s very likely to score against Spurs as well. While the odds are evens on him, Tottenham players also have to pay attention to the Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Jesus (7/5), and the England international Raheem Sterling (7/4).
Big test against big clubs for Spurs
This match is definitely a big test for Tottenham Hotspur. They’ve been consistent against smaller teams, but they seem to lose their giant-killer ability that made them likeable. They haven’t managed to win any of their Champions League games so far, and they’ve also lost against Liverpool at home in the league. On Monday, Spurs will get another chance to prove that they are able to compete with the very best clubs and to win trophies. As the odds are 17/5 on their victory at Unibet Sportsbook, it’s certain that bookies don’t really believe in Tottenham – and this time we’re on their side as well.
