KEI got the job done overnight for Columbus Crew so that was both scorers up for Jordan yesterday at 6-5 and evens.
Jordan says: Tricky card today and without overlooking much I’m sticking with the Premier League. Spurs showed just how much they were bothered about the Europa League with the team they put out on Thursday which resulted in a 3-0 loss in Dortmund and it’ll be tough to turn that tie around.
Dembele, Lamela and Kane all played less than 25 minutes with Dele Alli suspended and now come in fresh to face a Villa side who are all but relegated and were destroyed in the second half by Manchester City last weekend, with Sergio Aguero only failing a second half hat-trick from a missed penalty.
Harry Kane leads the Spurs scorers with 17 and scored in the reverse fixture and has scored in two of his last three away games in the Premier League. Again not the best market out there today but with little time and my crystal ball unable to predict what United will do against West Ham, I’ll be happy to stick with Kane.

Last week I thought Giovinco was overpriced and he happily slid a penalty in against the NYRB in a 2-0 win despite being underdogs. Tonight they are still in New York and this time against a side that had the worst home record in the MLS and conceded 6 more goals than anyone else. NYCFC scored twice in every game against Toronto last season, and while they could again, I’d be worried about the clean sheet Toronto kept last week against the NYRB. There was a 4-4 here last season with Giovinco scoring a first half hat-trick (and missing a penalty in the same half) and with Altidore a doubt I’m going to be on him again.
