Betting Tip: Harry Kane - Tottenham vs Stoke City @ 7/2 with bet365

We’ve all had our fingers burnt backing a team like Spurs at short odds. Irrespective of whether the manager is Mauricio Pochettino, Harry Redknapp or Martin Jol, this is not a team that should anchor any coupon!

However, Tottenham did play pretty well at Old Trafford and it was only a rare defensive lapse and a failure to take one of their chances which meant the London team went south without any points.

It is clear that Harry Kane is looking sharp as a tack and he could be the difference between the two teams on Saturday, especially if the clever Christian Eriksen can thread the ball through to his team-mate.

Stoke have been busy this summer signing the likes of Ibrahim Afellay and Xherdan Shaqiri who should give Mark Hughes plenty of attacking options, although Ryan Shawcross is a big loss in the heart of the Potters defence.

Shawcross has been rock-like for the past few seasons and the fact that Steven Nzonzi has left for Sevilla means that the visitors might not be as robust for this fixture as they were when winning 1-0 at White Hart Lane last term.

Even so, we’ll go for that man Kane to open the scoring as he’s the focal point of the Tottenham attack and ready to enjoy that “difficult second season” rather than flop in spectacular style.
