Tottenham v AFC Wimbledon Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
January 03, 2018
Wembley Stadium - FA Cup
Tottenham host League One side AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the FA Cup, with an upset looking unlikely for The Dons.
Tottenham have never played AFC Wimbledon in competitive action, following the club's formation in 2002.
Their last game against Wimbledon, which became MK Dons with AFC Wimbledon forming as a club in opposition to the move to Milton Keynes, ended in a 2-0 Premiership win for Spurs.
Harry Kane and Moussa Dembele are both back in first team training following absences, but Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama are both still sidelined.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could use this game to utilise some off his young players, with Juan Foyth, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Kyle Walker-Peters and Harry Winks all likely to feature.
AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley, will be without Kwesi Appiah, George Long and Barry Fuller for this game, but he could be boosted by the return of Cody McDonald and Harry Forrester.
Tottenham v AFC Wimbledon Preview and Predictions
Tottenham look very strong at home at the moment, winning their last four games at Wembley in all competitions, in fact they have not lost at home since October 25th to West Ham.
Spurs do have a build up of fixtures ahead of the visit of AFC Wimbledon, playing two Premier League games inside 48 hours, but they should have enough to win against a poor AFC Wimbledon side.
Ardley's side have one just three of their last seven League One games, all at home, with no away win since mid November.
A home win is priced at 1/7, and a Spurs win to nil bet is priced at 4/7.
Tottenham to win 3-0 at 9/2
Spurs should make light work of their visitors, even with a weakened side that is expected to be fielded by Pochettino at Wembley. The attacking options available to the Argentine boss should be far too much for opposition that is two flights below Spurs.
Fernando Llorente to score anytime at 2/3
Spanish striker Llorente has not featured regularly for Tottenham this season, and with Kane likely to be rested for this game, he will be hoping to step up. the 32-year old striker only has one goal to his name following a summer move from Swansea City, and he will be itching to improve on that.
