Tottenham Hotspur v Stoke City Betting: A return to White Hart Lane should see the goals flow

After a difficult spell, Al Hain-Cole expects Spurs to enjoy a high-scoring win when they return to familiar surroundings to take on Mark Hughes' men

After crashing out of the Europa League against Gent in midweek, Tottenham Hotspur will be turning their full attention to the Premier League when Stoke City visit White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men were defeated 3-2 on aggregate by the Belgians after a 2-2 draw at Wembley but are 2/5 (1.40) favourites with Betway to bounce straight back by coming out on top here.

Having lost 4-0 at home in September’s reverse fixture, the Potters are available at 7/1 (8.00) to exact revenge with a second win in three unbeaten visits to this ground.

The sides shared a 2-2 draw when they met here last season, and you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on them cancelling each other out once again.

While some might suggest that elimination from the Europa League could actually offer a boost to Spurs’ Premier League campaign in the long term, a run that now extends to just one win and two defeats in four games cannot help but harm the players’ confidence.

With three of those matches taking place on the road and the other at Wembley, Pochettino’s men will be relieved to be returning home to White Hart Lane, where they have won 10 and lost none of their 12 league games this season.

Having scored 31 goals in their last 11 matches in front of their own fans, the hosts will certainly back themselves to return to form against a defence they have put four past in each of the last two encounters.

Considering Mark Hughes’ team have conceded three at Arsenal and four each at Liverpool and Chelsea in recent away games, it is certainly difficult to see them putting up too much resistance here.

All things considered, even odds (2.00) are not to be missed on Tottenham coming out on top in their ninth game in 12 that features over 2.5 goals, as well as a fifth in six away matches for Stoke.
