Given a strong record in London derbies, Al Hain-Cole is backing the England star to mark Spurs' first league game at Wembley with his 100th club goal

With 99 goals to his name for Tottenham, Harry Kane will be hoping to reach a century in memorable fashion when Chelsea visit Wembley on Sunday.

Last season’s 29-goal top scorer is Betsafe’s 16/5 (4.20) favourite to open the scoring for the first time in the Premier League at Spurs’ temporary home, and priced at 11/10 (2.10) to strike anytime.

While he may have taken his time to get off the mark in previous seasons, the 23-year-old’s strong record in London derbies and a weakened opposition line-up suggest those anytime odds could prove a strong bet.

Tottenham celebrate

Kane has struck 18 times in 21 matches against sides from the capital, including a goal in the 4-2 defeat against Antonio Conte’s men when the sides last met back in April.

Also on the scoresheet that day with a third goal in two games against the Blues, Dele Alli represents an even more lucrative prospect at 43/20 (3.15) after hitting the net in the 2-0 opening victory over Newcastle last time out.

Third top scorer for Spurs behind that duo last campaign, Son Heung-Min can be backed at 2/1 (3.00) to get off the mark in this clash, while Christian Eriksen is available at 7/2 (4.50) to breach a defence he scored past back in November.

At the other end of the pitch, Alvaro Morata will be hoping to make his first Chelsea start after making a positive impact as a substitute in last week’s shock defeat against Burnley.

Having scored one goal and set up another at Stamford Bridge, the £58 million signing from Real Madrid is his side’s 5/1 (6.00) favourite to break the deadlock and 9/5 (2.80) to score anytime.

The Spain international was denied a place in the starting line-up by Michy Batshuayi, who is priced at 23/10 (3.30) to boost his own first-team credentials by finding the net at the national stadium.

Considering Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro are all ruled out, the pressure is on Willian 4/1 (5.00) to offer a threat from midfield, with wing-back Victor Moses rated as the guests’ next most likely goalscorer at lengthy 7/1 (8.00) odds.
