Midweek Premier League Preview – Spurs Top 4 Push & Transfer Odds


Tottenham  7/4 with bet365 to claim a top-four finish

Nobody seems quite sure how good Tottenham Hotspur can be under Antonio Conte this season, least of all themselves.

The Italian was brought in to make Spurs a serious force again in the Premier League and there has been undeniable progress since he arrived on November 2.

There is certainly more fire, urgency and desire from Tottenham under Conte than there was under his predecessor, Nuno Espirito Santo.

But the big question is whether that improvement can be translated into tangible rewards.

Such as a top-four finish and a place in next season’s Champions League.

Conte’s men have four games in hand on West Ham, who currently lie fourth, but finishing in the Champions League places will take some doing.

The way Spurs were outclassed by Chelsea over two legs in the Carabao Cup semi-finals suggested they remain some way behind the Premier League’s top dogs.

You can get 7/4 with Bet365  for Tottenham to claim a top-four finish.

Dele Alli’s future remains the source of much conjecture and he has yet to convince Conte he is worth a place in the side.

The midfielder was an unused substitute during last week’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg defeat at home to Chelsea.

With Jesse Lingard 3/10 with Unibet to remain at Manchester United this month, it is worth taking a punt on Alli making the switch to relegation-threatened Newcastle.

The Geordies are simply desperate for new faces and a move to Tyneside would suit all parties.

You can get 4/1 with Bet Victor on the 25-year-old joining Eddie Howe’s squad this month.

Could Alli’s departure even open the door for Lingard to arrive?

Despite the odds on him staying at Old Trafford beyond this month, you can get 9/2 with Paddy Power on the England man making a January switch to Spurs.
