Hull City v Tottenham
15:00 - 21/5/2017 - KCOM Stadium, Hull
Six unanswered goals against the Eagles and Sunderland in their last two has sealed Hull’s fate and they now have the unenviable task of hosting a Spurs side fresh off a 6-1 hammering of Leicester. Harry Kane struck four times and their total of 83 points would have been enough to win the Premier League on eight previous occasions – with a game still to come.
Prior to losing to Sunderland, the Tigers had won seven of eight unbeaten matches at the KCOM Stadium. One of these victories was against Liverpool, but that was when the Reds were out of sorts at the start of 2017 and the next best club in this run was Bournemouth (10th). Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City have all won here with the former the only team not to do so by at least a two-goal margin.
Spurs have won just eight of their 18 away matches, but four have come in the last five. Furthermore, Pochettino’s men have dropped most of their points at the division’s stronger sides with their record against the bottom-half W7-D1-L1. Five of these victories were by at least two clear goals and with their front-three of Kane, Alli and Son all in excellent form, we’ll back the visitors to cover the -1 handicap.
