[11th-Apr-15] Tottenham Hotspur – Aston Villa

Spurs keeper Hugo Lloirs will be out with a knee injury while Kyle Walker is also unavailable due to injury. Defender Jan Vertonghen is a game-time decision as the Belgian is currently battling an illness. Aston Villa are without Carles Gil, Ashley Westwood, Alan Hutton, and Scott Sinclair due to injury, but wingback Aly Cissokho has been training with the squad all week and should be ready to make his return.

Head-To-Head

Tottenham come into the game unbeaten in their last 12 fixtures against Aston Villa, with 9 wins from those 12 including the last 5 straight. Spurs are also unbeaten in 10 Premier League games at White Hart Lane running back to November, having won 7 of those games during that time. Tottenham have also scored 26 goals in the calendar year so far, with only their North London rivals, Arsenal better. Harry Kane is still the target man, with 11 goals in his last 9 appearances for the club, and his 19 goals so far in the league have won or rescued 22 points for Spurs, more than any other player. Kane’s goal vs. Aston Villa in November is also the only goal scored by a Spurs substitute all season despite Tottenham having used more substitutes than any other Premier League side at 91.

Aston Villa are the only side worse than Spurs at substituting scoring, having not scored any in the campaign so far. Villa’s last win at White Hart Lane was back in 2008 and Villa have this season lost 7 of their last 8 games on the road, with the 4-0 smashing of Sunderland, a game that ultimately cost Gus Poyet his job at the helm of the tyre-wear wide, being the exception. Villa are still on course for their worst ever points total in the Premier League of 38 points, which they secured in 2 of the last 3 seasons. Manager Tim Sherwood’s spell as Interim Manager saw him in charge of 22 games in the Premier League, with a 59% win rate; no other manager in Spurs history has a better win rate in the competition. Christian Benteke is the man to watch for Villa, with 7 goals in his last 5 appearances in all competitions for the Birmingham based side, including a hat trick in Tuesday’s 3-3 draw with QPR.
Prediction: Villa will put up a hell of a fight but I don’t see them winning this. Can see Kane snatching a goal in the final 10 minutes to secure a point
Spurs 2-2 Villa

Should I Let My Child Play Football? 5 Reasons to Say Yes!
Football is a popularly loved sport all over the world. Perhaps, you’re an ardent admirer of the Manchester United team and you go to watch every match from the stadium. And when you can’t, you’re glued to the television, watching the match enthusiastically. Having such an intense love for this game, you might also want to nurture the same passion in your kid. Or maybe you’re afraid to let your child play football, fearing the fatal injuries players are prone to. And that’s mainly the reason why you’ve been thinking – ‘should I enrol my son/daughter in a Swindon junior football academy or not?’ for the past few days, right? As parents of young children, especially if they are in the 2-9-year old age group, it’s natural to be concerned about the injury risks involved in football. However, even studies reveal it’s one of the most rewarding sports a child can play. Want to know why? Then keep reading! Reasons to Allow Your Child Play Football 1. Plenty of health benefits: Playing any sport is beneficial for children’s health. So, what’s so special about football? Being a physically demanding game, kids can develop their strength, speed, stamina, agility and hand-eye coordination while running the whole time. Practice makes everyone perfect. So the more your child plays football, the better will be his/her all-round development. 2. Agent of discipline: Fostering the value of discipline is very important as it’ll help them lead a balanced life later on. There’s nothing better than helping your young one become disciplined by allowing him/her play football. Players must pay attention to every detail. One wrong move and it can negatively impact the game. Kids who join a Swindon junior football academy realize the importance of discipline in anything they do, from reaching classes on time to practising their skills. 3. Learn new skills: No sport is complete without using the right skills and football isn’t an exception. Children learn the fundamentals of football by developing new skills. They learn to work as a team and also as an individual participant. Football helps children to improve their social skills and when they’re training under a professional coach, they’ll also learn the art of dribbling, passing, juggling, receiving and shooting, among others. 4. Develop healthy competitiveness: Life itself is a competition. We’re all in a race to get the best education, the best job, the best house and so on. But what matters is teaching your child the difference between good and bad competition. Through football, kids will realize one crucial thing – nothing comes easily and work hard is the road to success. Competitiveness doesn’t mean always winning. Football encourages the spirit of healthy competition in children wherein they learn to set a goal and put the required effort to accomplish it. Boosts mental toughness: For a player of any sport, both physical and mental toughness work in tandem to bring about success. In addition to developing technical and social skills, football also aids in creating a strong mind. When children learn how to tackle failure in a game and address the various challenges, they won’t have much problem in encountering failures in life going forward. Playing against a team of eleven requires one to stay focused and have the mental strength to overcome the hardships and children playing football, learn these, slowly and steadily. Final words: Football will help your child to unlock a whole new world of potentials. It’s not only the best way to keep them physically active but also a great recreational activity they can enjoy after spending 7-8 hours everyday at school. Moreover, football has now become a safer game for children as coaches provide special safety classes focusing on developing blocking and tackling techniques.

EPL Match Day 23: What we learned
I had a lot of fun watching this week's matches in the EPL. Here are my takeaways! Liverpool need to defend better The most exciting match of the week was no doubt the 5-4 thrilled between Liverpool and Norwich. Liverpool came from behind multiple times in this one, scoring at the last kick of the match to take it 5-4. From a neutral standpoint, it was a terrific match, but both managers will be ashamed at their defenders. It was absolutely shambolic. Jurgen Klopp is known to be an attacking manager, but he needs to sort out his defense if Liverpool want to finish in a high position this season. They got away with one here. Villa not done quite yet Aston Villa recorded their fifth consecutive match without a loss, moving them to 13 points. They are still 9 points from safety, but this is a very encouraging run of form for Remi Garde's men as they attempt to claw their way out of the basement. They will need to start piling up some more points in the next few weeks but it looks like a team that everyone had marked as relegated will put up a real fight before the season has its last laugh. Title race remains wide open Thanks to City's slip-up at West Ham and Per Mertesaker's foolish challenge on Diego Costa that got him sent off and gave Arsenal a mountain to climb vs. Chelsea, Leicester City return to the top of the table after their 3-0 drubbing of Stoke. No one seems to really believe that they can finish the season atop the table, but with City and Arsenal continuing to drop points, Leicester may just have a chance. And don't count out Spurs, who beat a struggling Palace side 3-1 to stay in the hunt. They may have the best form of any team in the league right now and I would not sleep on their title chances. Oh - and look out for that boy Dele Alli, who scored what will surely go down as the goal of the season. An absolute STUNNER!
[Discussion] Who will win the EPL?
This weekend, the EPL takes a break from regular league play to shift focus to the FA Cup. That gives us a minute to step back and take a look at the league so far. With 23 of 38 rounds in the books, who is going to win the league? The way I see it, there are four real challengers. Leicester City Leicester are the team that shocks the world more and more each week as they inch closer to the title. They currently hold a 3 point lead in the league, sitting on 47 points. It has been a remarkable season for a team that was nearly relegated last season and didn't appear to get all that better over the summer. But they have been inspired by Riyad Mahrez, N'Golo Kante and Jamie Vardy and look to be ready to make a legitimate race toward the end. Despite everyone's reservations, Leicester are in it to win it. Arsenal At this point it seems that Arsenal are favorites. While they are 3 points behind Leicester, they are just now getting many of their injured players back (Alexis Sanchez, Francis Coquelin) and they have a very experienced roster, full of players who are used to playing in huge matches. That experience could prove invaluable for a team that is looking to win its first league title in ages and ages. The fan base wants it, and this could be the year that Arsenal break their curse. Manchester City City are another team with a great pedigree. They are full of experience and talent, and many of the players on this team were around when City last won the league a few season ago. They are no doubt hungry to repeat that success, and are level with Arsenal on points. However, they just got news that superstar newcomer Kevin de Bruyne will be out 6 weeks, which could seriously hurt their chances. He has been one of their star performers this season. Tottenham Spurs are the sleepers in this race, sitting 5 points behind leaders Leicester. But their form has been superb. They have one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Hugo Lloris and a terrific defense to boot, not to mention their talisman Harry Kane and the blossoming midfielder Dele Alli proving to be one of the most exciting players around. Many see Spurs as more pretenders than contenders, but I'm not ready to count them out. My money is on Arsenal. I think they have the squad depth required to make it happen, with the experience and quality they have on their roster. I'm not counting out any of these teams and I honestly think anyone could win, but for the moment, I'm picking Arsenal. Who do you think will win the league when it's all said and done? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda @Bobs
Online sportfogadás magyaroknak - fogadási oldalak
Tudtátok, hogy az összes magyar sportfogadás fele már online történik? Még a koronavírus sem tudta kedvét szegni a játékosoknak, akik újabb és újabb, addig ismeretlen fogadási piacokon teszik próbára a szerencséjüket! De milyen lehetőségei is vannak azoknak, akik magyar nyelvű, gyors és egyszerű fogadási lehetőségeket keresnek az interneten? Szerencsére az elmúlt néhány évben a jól bejáratott és a viszonylag új külföldi fogadóoldalak is újra felfedezték a magyar piacot és annak igen lelkes közönségét. Ehhez persze az kellett, hogy több bírósági döntés is kimondja, hogy a hazai felügyelőszervek addigi korlátozó tevékenysége - a külföldről hosztolt online játékterek blokkolása és a reklámjaik tiltása – uniós jogot sért. A jelenlegi állapot szerint ezért Magyarország az online szerencsejátékot tekintve egy olyan szürkezóna, ahol a külföldi oldalakat és azok látogatóit retorzió már nem éri, ugyanakkor a játékosok vitás ügyek esetén nem fordulhatnak a megfelelő hazai fogyasztóvédelmi szervekhez. Na de milyen lehetőségek várnak arra, aki nem elégszik meg a Magyarországon egyetlen teljesen legális sportfogadási szolgáltató, a TippmixPro kínálatával és oddsaival? Szerencsére ma már nemcsak olyan külföldi oldalak nyíltak meg a magyar IP-címek felől érkező látogatók előtt, ahol magyar piacokra is lehet fogadni, hanem egyes szájtokon gondos magyarítás - ilyen a Bet365 vagy az Unibet - magyar sportfogadás is várja a felhasználókat, valamint elfogadják az idehaza is ismert és bevett alternatív fizetési módokat. Egy külföldi fogadóoldalon a regisztráció és a befizetés is gyors és egyszerű. Csak olyan oldalon regisztrálj, amit közvetlenül, például alternatív link vagy VPN használata nélkül is elérhetsz. Ez biztos jele vannak, hogy a szolgáltató számít a magyar játékosokra, és mindent megtesz azok megelégedettsége érdekében. Ha netán nem beszélsz idegen nyelveket, vagy nem ismered még a szerencsejátékkal kapcsolatos kifejezéseket, válassz egy olyan szépen magyarított oldalt, ahol nemcsak a kezdőoldal, hanem a gyakran ismételt kérdések, a felhasználási feltételek, a fizetési módok és a fogadási típusok is részletes magyar nyelvű leírást kaptak. Egy ilyen igényes oldal például a 22Bet magyar változata. Fontos megjegyezni, hogy egy külföldi sportfogadási oldalon is előbb-utóbb, legkésőbb a nyereményed kivételekor szükséged lesz a személyazonosságod és a lakcímed igazolására. Ez általában csak annyit jelent, hogy befotózod egy fényképes igazolványod és a lakcímkártyád, amit beküldesz a megadott ügyfélszolgálati linken vagy címre, hogy aztán egy munkatársuk leellenőrizhesse. Ezen egyszer kell átesni. És ha már ügyfélszolgálat, legyen fontos szempont az oldal kiválasztásánál az is, hogy van-e magyar nyelvű élő chates segítségnyújtás. Ezt például a Bwin is tudja. Hogy mennyire éri meg a külföldi bukmékereknek a magyar sporteseményekkel foglalkozni, sajnos nem nagyon. Inkább azt mondanánk, hogy lehet ilyen helyen találkozni egy-egy megtehető, pl. NB. I-es foci, női kézilabda vagy magyar vonatkozású nemzetközi meccsel, de a külföldi oldalakat ne a hazai sportfogadás miatt válasszuk. De általánosságban - a magyar piacokat leszámítva - a kínálat, a szorzók, a marginok és a fogadási lehetőségek terén is jobbak ezek az oldalak, hiszen nincsenek kvázi monopolhelyzetben. Amiben a külföldi oldalak még előrébb vannak, azok a virtuális sportok és az e-sportok, na meg a politikai vagy más, nagy nemzetközi érdeklődést kiváltó, jeles események kimenetelének fogadhatósága. Ha a sok sportfogadás után netán kedved támad játszani, számos bukméker oldalon pár kattintással átléphetsz a platform – szinten egyre többször magyarított - online kaszinójába. További jó hír, hogy a külföldi online játékterek kaszinóoldalainak a különféle bónuszait magyar játékosok is igénybe vehetik, általában ugyanazokkal a megjátszási feltételekkel. Aladár Kollár
EPL Matchweek 13: Five takeaways
It's 13 weeks in the books in the EPL and suffice to say that this week brought some major surprises. Let's take a look at the 5 biggest storylines from the week's matches! 5. Spurs continue their climb Harry Kane and Tottenham kept up their great form as they beat West Ham 4-1 to move to 5th in the table. Kane scored twice and has now put together a great run of matches, recovering his incredible form from last season. Could this be the year that Spurs really make a challenge for the top 4? 4. Sunderland grab a win Sunderland got just their second win of the season yesterday as they beat Crystal Palace in London. It was a pretty disappointing match across the board as neither team looked like scoring, but it all went wrong for Palace as Scott Dann and keeper Wayne Hennessey got into a mixup at the back as Jermain Defoe pounced to score the only goal. Some big dropped points for Palace, who could've moved sixth but instead fall to 10th. Sunderland move up to 18th, just one point away from safety. 3. Arsenal fall to West Ham The Gunners missed a gild-edged chance to go top of the table as they fell to lowly West Brom on Saturday, 2-1. West Brom played a great match and took the lead on a Mikel Arteta own goal after getting it started through James Morrison. Terrible result for Arsenal who may come to rue this slip in concentration in a match they surely should've won. 2. Liverpool crush City Liverpool smashed Manchester City 4-1 in a pretty surprising result over the weekend. City could've gained a lead atop the table given Arsenal's slip but failed to take advantage as Jurgen Klopp's men played with confidence and skill to gain a huge 3 points. Great win for Liverpool, bad match for City. 1. Leicester go top Surely the biggest storyline of the week is Leicester, who continued their shocking season and ended the week at the top of the table, ahead of 2nd place United by one point. James Vardy set a Premiership record by scoring in his 10th consecutive match and Leicester seem to be the real deal, much to everyone's surprise. They're a fun story and are playing some great football these days.
Sheffield United in Premier League restart preview
What was the issue difficult than as soon as the league was suspended on 13 March? Supposed certainties for relegation, Chris Wilders Sheffield United team were the most heartening gloss of the season until the pause. Seventh in the table gone the knowledge that winning their game in hand would raise them to fifth. European qualification is a conclusive and glorious possibility and they as ably as have a FA Cup quarter-massive at stop adjoining Arsenal. Whom they have already beaten at Bramall Lane in the league this season. Sheffield United have a amassed armoury of players who are plentiful to an extent not seen at their previous clubs and their associated completion within Wilders inventive system is reflected in the fact that they have the second meanest defence in the league, an wonderful execution for a team contesting their first season after sponsorship. They have sustained their hermetic form throughout the toss taking into account suggestion to. When their unaccompanied defeats in their last 13 matches to the guide the lockdown monster to Liverpool and Manchester City. What on the subject of now? The squad is harm-general pardon and Wilder may have welcomed the rapid mid-season crack insofar as it enabled him to flaming a team that seldom changes (four of the mitigation five have played all go along in the middle of of the season, though John Egan has missed and no-one else one). There were more harmonious news at the weekend as the club reached a arbitration in principle as soon as Manchester United for the goalkeeper Dean Henderson to stay future than 30 June. What needs to be curtains to have a gymnastic fade away to the season? Although the Blades tightness is due to much anew a sociable goalkeeper, keeping Henderson is important. United could profit your hands re taking into account more brusqueness going on front. They are totally not a negative team no side can be sensibly called that bearing in mind their center-backs regularly suit every single one single one along the wings but they have mustered fewer shots than anyone else in the league, appropriately there is a oppressive onus to present a appreciative get together between on the few chances they forge. That is not just all along to their forwards, whose contributions to the team upon the go conscious opinion much upon peak of scoring. But astern canny midfielder Robert Fleck their joint-leading scorer in the league at the by now five goals, an increased strike rate from Lys Mousset (adjacent-door upon five goals), Oli McBurnie (four) or David McGoldrick (tantalisingly stuffy to above zero) would be a boost. Have the players and staff behaved during lockdown? Yes. Any unsung/community heroes Sheffield United? In swell to joining his teammates in contributing to the Players Together fundraising intention, Enda Stevens, formerly of Shamrock Rovers, donated to a fund set taking place in his almost flare country for League of Ireland players left in financial rough conditions by the lockdown. Stokes James McClean and Burnleys Kevin Long, both of whom in addition to started their careers in the League of Ireland, did likewise. Key artist in the control-in? Ollie Norwood. Sheffield United mammal the Premier Leagues best example of the high flier of a perfectly calibrated and populated system, it is hard to identify one performer who is more important than the others. Henderson obviously performs a unique role but ample of others along considering have valuable specialities. Norwood is a vital cog in the heart of midfield, an ever-produce a result whose realization to knit hobby-court encounter together explains why he has completed more passes than any auxiliary artist in the side this season even even if moreover winning more tackles than any of his midfield teammates.
