Get an added edge on your Anderlecht v Tottenham Hotspur goalscorer bets for Thursday's Europa League clash with the football betting offers at William Hill.

Anderlecht are going great guns domestically, but have laboured to a slow start in Europa League Group J and will be aiming to put in an improved performance against Tottenham. The Belgian side allowed Monaco to score a late equaliser in the opening match and were then upstaged by Qarabağ in Baku, so need a decent result against Spurs at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium to give them a better chance of qualifying for the knockout phase.

Tottenham drew 0-0 with Liverpool at the weekend, but have looked in good shape on the European stage, easily beating Qarabağ at Whitehart Lane before earning a solid point away to Monaco. Spurs are currently top of the table, so will be aiming to consolodate their position by claiming 3 points in Belgium and will be buoyed by the fact that Anderlecht have failed to win their last 6 matches the Europa League.

Goalscorer Second Chance

Stefano Okaka has notched 6 times in the Jupiler League and is likely to lead the line for the hosts, with Idrissa Sylla also worthy of consideration having scored 3 times this season. Youri Tielemans has a penchant for long-range efforts and is beginning to fulfil his potential with 3 goals, while Steven Defour should be on spot-kicks and Dennis Praet will be getting forward whenever possible. Guillaume Gillet has scored Anderlecht's only Europa League goal so far and has also got one in the Belgian league, so is not easily ruled out despite being a more defensive minded player.

Son Heung-Min and Erik Lamela each have 2 Europa League goals to their name and will be eager to add to their accounts here, while Harry Kane is likely to be rested by Mauricio Pochettino to be kept fresh for Sunday's trip to Bournemouth. Christian Eriksen's deadly free-kicks make him a worthy candidate and Andros Townsend tends to have a few shots from distance so is another to consider from the Spurs midfield.
