Well, Spurs supporters found out one thing last week--it is easier to win a game that is 11 v. 9 than 11 v. 11. Sending offs for Liverpool's Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel helped launched Tottenham Hotspur to a 4-0 win that has brought the team up to midtable. Emanuel Adebayor has kept his momentum going from the Wolverhampton match with a brace against Liverpool, while the likes of Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Kyle Walker, Scott Parker, and Luka Modric all turned it starring performances.

This week, Tottenham has a new challenge in facing a feisty Wigan Athletic side that shocked Spurs at the DW Side last season. Wigan is looking poor on the season though, coming off two league losses in a row and losing star striker Hugo Rodallega to injury.

Our faithful writers have continued in their prediction league, as Ryan continues to lead. The rules remain, one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here's the current standings:

Name Score
Ryan 4
The Roosevelts 3
Kevin 2
Mechanick 2
Ashlock 2
Evan 1

This week's predictions after the jump:

Kevin: We'll dominate, but Al Habsi will play well enough to keep it respectable. 2-0 Spurs

Ashlock: Tottenham should win this game handily, but Ali Al-Habsi keeps this respectable. 3-0 Spurs

Mechanick: No Rodallega means to goal scoring for Wigan. Parker grabs his first. 2-0 Spurs

Ryan: If we lose this match I will cry. I don't want to cry. Goals by Adebayor and Bale. Spurs 2-1

The Roosevelts: I base this solely on how optimistic I currently am about the team. This is not a Spurs fans natural state of being. A loss is inevitable. 5-1 Wigan

Evan: Spurs put it together away from the Lane and begin climbing back up the table. 2-1 Spurs
