Probably a match that is more important for Tottenham, but Wigan come to the Lane with nothing to lose and know all the pressure is on the home side. Can Spurs build on their first win of the season?
Roman Pavlyuchenko and Verdan Corluka should both figure at somepoint today after being unable to play in the midweek UEFA Cup win. Modric is likely to be out and Alan Hutton is still some way from fitness.
Lee Cattermole, Ryan Taylor and Erik Edman are all missing for Wigan.
Head To Head
Tottenham are unbeaten in all six Premier League meetings with Wigan, having won three and drawn three.
This is Tottenham’s worst ever start to a Premier League campaign. If they do not win today it will equal their record of sixteen years ago of failing to win any of their first five league games.
Defeat for Wigan today would make it their worst start to a Premier League campaign.
Well, I’d love to see Spurs build on their UEFA Cup win but I just think Wigan are going to make it extremely difficult for them today. If you had asked me before the start of the season, I would have said this is a banker home win for Tottenham but on the evidence so far, I think a point is more likely.
0-0 is a strong possibility, 12/1 is on offer at Canbet.
HT/FT Draw Draw at 5/1 with Stan James.
