Be warned: these blokes could get totes emosh. For starters, it looks like Spurs’ second title challenge in as many seasons will end in heartbreak. But here’s the real feels: Saturday is the last time Spurs will play at White Hart Lane. Ever. Ready the waterworks….
The prospect of Wembley home games next season might well cheer them up. As will their lacklustre opponents of yesteryear glamour: Manchester United. Spurs will hope to ring in the new by dispensing with the League’s oldest, most decorated team.
But don’t count on it. Mourinho tends to bring his A game for top teams – see the Chelsea masterclass a few weeks back. And remember, we’re not at the Theatre of Draws. Plus Man U have only lost 4 games all season – a season-record low matched only by, you guessed it, Spurs themselves.
So the draw seems out, as does each team losing. What does this mean for the result? By our calculations, a break in the space-time continuum.
Mourinho may well bring his largest double-decker bus and shut down the prospect of any spectacle. Don’t be dragged down in the doldrums if this happens: back the prospect of Under 0.5 Goals at 33/4.
But let’s look on the brighter side (while wiping away a White Hart tear). Wonder if boy wonder Rashford will continue his sterling form? To score at anytime he’s at the ludicrously long 3/1. For a surer thing, try England’s other wunderkind Dele Alli: a goal from him in 90mins is at 7/4.
We’ll stick our neck out – though not too far – and say a 1-0 win for either side. If you agree, go for a one goal game at 15/4.
Will White Harts be broken or warmed by Red Devils? Will Mourinho prioritise 4th or go all out for Europa? Can the men in White spur themselves to a season finish flourish? Make your stake with ComeOn!
