Tottenham Hotspur v Blackburn Odds Betting Preview

Premiership action Sunday afternoon comes from White Hart Lane featuring Tottenham Hotspur versus Blackburn Rovers.

The whole game can be seen Live on Sky Sports 1 with a scheduled 4pm (BST) Kick Off Time.

Tottenham Hotspur head into this game having had a terrible time of it lately and looking a mere shadow of the side that was tipped to challenge for the Premiership Title at the back end of last year, but Harry Redknapp’s side are still in with a chance of qualification to the Champions League and will no doubt be fired up to get the job done against struggling Blackburn.

Blackburn are starting relegation to the Championship in the face and with just three games left in the season to play including this one, Steve Kean’s side also have to win this match if they are to stand any chance of playing Premiership football next season.

Tottenham Hotspur v Blackburn Rovers Team News

Harry Redknapp will definitely be without Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Niko Kranjcar, Tom Huddlestone, and Michael Dawson who all look out for the rest of the season now with respective injuries.

Veteran defender Ledley King is also a doubt as he continues his battle with his knee injury, but the good news for Spurs fans is that both Younes Kaboul and Emmanuel Adebayor have recovered from recent knocks and will be involved in the starting lineup.

Steve Kean has pretty much a full squad to choose from and will only be without Simon Vukcevic and Grant Hanley. The sought after David Hoilett who Harry Redknapp is a huge fan is expected to start up front alongside Yakubu and will no doubt be eager to impress.

Tottenham Hotspur v Blackburn Rovers Head to Head Statistics

  • Tottenham Hotspur Victories : 38 (25 at White Hart Lane Stadium)
  • Draws : 16 (7 at White Hart Lane Stadium)
  • Blackburn Victories : 29 (9 at White Hart Lane Stadium)

The Scouts Match Verdict

Tottenham clearly dominate the head to head statistics shown above having won more times than Blackburn both overall and when having home advantage and with Harry Redknapp’s side having only lost three times at home all season, I am confident Spurs will win this game and keep their hat in the ring for the Champions League places.

Blackburn will be desperate for the victory and this could become their undoing as they really have no option but to attack in numbers and this will surely leave gaps at the back for the pacey Lennon and Bale to exploit.

An exciting game in prospect and one that I expect to contain at least a few goals along the way, Spurs defending has been questionable at the best of times this season and Blackburn certainly have the players up front that can score goals in this game so it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise to me to see Blackburn getting on the scoresheet.

However, it really is last chance saloon now for the Tottenham players if they want to participate in the Champions League next season and with Adebayor back and leading the attack up front, Spurs should win this game by the odd goal or two come the full time whistle.
