Writers Prediction League: Tottenham Hotspur at Stoke City

New, comments

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match at Stoke City.

Laurence Griffiths

Better. Tottenham beat Fulham 3-1 last weekend, boosting the team's Europa League hopes in convincing fashion. The combo of Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane have been in sterling form, boosting Spurs' attack. Younes Kaboul has stepped up at centerback in the wake of Jan Vertonghen's injury. Can Spurs get another three points today with just three games remaining in the season?

In the way today is Stoke City, currently 10th in the table with little left to play for. The biggest drama entering the game regards Stoke's Charlie Adam, who has earned a bad reputation among the Spurs' faithful due to his dirty tackling and injuries caused to Tottenham players.  Stoke boasts a formidable attacking trio, as Peter Crouch, Marko Arnoutovich, and Peter Odemwingie are big time goal scorers Can keeper Asmir Begovich keep it tight on D and limit Spurs' scoring chances?

As for the Prediction League, Lennon's Eyebrow is coming back into it after last week's perfect prediction. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League -- one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

The Sleeper's Sleep: Charlie Adam is a person of refined tastes, by which I mean it's hard to find human flesh that's both certified organic AND free range. 2-1 Spurs.
