A look at Stoke’s betting odds
Jack Butland’s continued injury issues have cut through to national attention after England number one Joe Hart’s recent travails, but the impact of the 23-year-old Bristolian’s absence from Stoke’s XI has been severe.
Mark Hughes’ men have won just one Premier League match in ten since Butland’s ankles first started playing up, losing six of those including two of their first three in this campaign.
Loan captures Wilfried Bony and Bruno Martins Indi’s likely debuts should perk up Potters fans, but they’re at hefty 7/2 outsider odds in bwin’s betting for a reason.
A look at Tottenham’s betting odds
Spurs let loose somewhat during the summer transfer window deadline day, adding enigmatic France midfielder Moussa Sissoko, Marseille winger Kevin N’Koudou and young goalie Pau Lopez to a squad already furnished with new signings Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen.
Having gone unbeaten during their first three-match gauntlet of the campaign, with 1-1 draws against both Merseyside clubs and a 1-0 victory at home to Crystal Palace, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be confident of kicking on at a ground where the Lilywhites have won five times in their past seven visits.
Keep an eye on the betting for attacking-midfielder Christian Eriksen’s odds of getting on the scoresheet, after the Dane bagged on World Cup 2018 qualifying duty against Armenia.
Eriksen has contributed 23 Premier League goals to his side’s cause since moving to north London three summers ago and is due another after failing to fire in his past ten top-flight appearances.
