Can Mourinho Be Successful With Spurs?

Jose Mourinho has previously been manager of Chelsea (twice) and Manchester United in the English Premier League before, although he is now in charge of Tottenham Hotspur and faces a season which could have a big say on how he will eventually be regarded by football fans in this country.

Spurs finished sixth in last season’s top flight and there’s little doubt that the focus will be qualifying for the Champions League this time around, with the north London outfit having finished the campaign strongly thanks to an unbeaten run of six games.

Should Tottenham Be Odds-On Against Everton?

Spurs won’t have any supporters cheering them on at White Hart Lane for this clash on 12 September, although every bookmaker still regards them as an odds-on shot to overcome Everton for this EPL opener.

The Toffees were one of the teams beaten as part of that run at the end of the 2019/20 campaign, with Tottenham triumphing 1-0 and many will be looking to back a team who won twelve of their nineteen clashes on home soil last term.

Much depends on the scoring prowess of Harry Kane and he signed off with five goals in his final three matches of the season which could see the home side start things off with a victory.

Are Everton Completely Average in the Premier League?

The legendary Carlo Ancelotti might be in charge at Goodison Park although few Evertonians are particularly optimistic about the new season. After all, Everton finished in twelfth place last term and they only mustered 49 points from 38 matches, with the last six games seeing them triumph just once.

Ancelotti will have appreciated the pre-season to spend with the players and perhaps we will see a rejuvenated team that includes Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin who have the potential to score goals.

Everton lost eleven of their nineteen away games last term and we’re not expecting them to pull up any trees in matches such as this one where Ancelotti would appreciate a point from this clash.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

We think the opening game of the season can throw up unpredictable outcomes and the fact that there are international fixtures just before the domestic campaign begins is hardly ideal for any manager.

The price about a Tottenham win simply looks too short considering that the jury is still out on a team that relies heavily on Kane for goals, even if Son Heung-Min is a talented operator and the same applies to Lucas Moura.

We are going to take a tentative bet on the draw at a much bigger price than the home win, while we also think Under 2.5 Goals could be the shout considering that the same thing happened when the sides met at White Hart Lane after lockdown.

If you are wanting to back Spurs, a 1-0 victory could be the order of the day and that is a good way of covering the home win.
