Keeping Things Warm
After their recent defeat to Middlesbrough, it looked as if the race for second place in the EFL Championship had come alive. Paul Heckingbottom’s men had an opportunity to go 13 points clear of Michael Carrick’s, that loss meant a ten-point margin had become seven.
Fast forward another few days and seven had quickly become four. Suddenly the Blades were not as sharp as they once were, as the Riverside Stadium outfit continued to breath down the necks of their Bramall Lane counterparts.
However, the strange beast that is England’s second tier roared once again at the weekend, as a positive swing of results for the red and white half of Sheffield means that the gap has been restored to seven once more.
Now though, the race for promotion is placed on pause for a few days, as cup football arrives in the steel city and with Tottenham lying in wait, progress to the last eight is going to have to be earned the hard way.
Especially as Spurs do look like they are in the groove once more. Admittedly there was a slight aberration when Antonio Conte rushed back from illness and oversaw a disastrous 4-1 defeat at Leicester.
Unfortunately for Conte, things were not all that much better on Valentines’ Day and with the usual fiery Italian looking a pale imitation of himself at the San Siro, the decision to recuperate in full was soon made.
Then again, that decision may be one of the best things that happens to Spurs and with Conte’s coaching cohort Cristian Stellini currently at the helm, the 48-year-old has a perfect record in the technical area.
Three league matches, three league wins and whether this is by accident or design is still up for debate. What you cannot debate though, is that the North London outfit have picked up nine points and are now back in the top four of the Premier League.
Which means although Champions League football can be considered a prize in itself, winning the FA Cup may be the way that Tottenham finally end their trophy drought. With that being said, they can ill afford to overlook Wednesday’s hosts either.
With that in mind, our latest bet builder is now up for grabs, and it looks like this:
- First half draw
- Richarlison to score anytime
- Both teams to score
For my latest bet builder offering, I have placed the focus on Richarlison. With the former Everton forward being given a starting berth in recent weeks, I think a goal from the Brazilian could set Spurs on their way to the last eight.
However, we know that the North London outfit are a second half team and that is why I have opted for a draw after 45 minutes. Not only that, but I have opted for both teams to score by the end of 90 and if all these three picks get over the line, you will end up with winning odds of 11/1.
