There was just one game in the Premier League today but it had big ramifications at the top and bottom of the Premier League table, while the FA Cup took centre stage in the early kick-off between Bradford and Reading…
Tottenham remain in the Top Four battle after a 2-1 win at QPR in today’s sole Premier League fixture.
Again it was Harry Kane who was the Lilywhites’ hero, the England under-21 striker scoring both goals to continue his stunning hot streak. The 9.28/1 brace means Kane stands just one goal off Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero in the Premier League scoring charts – having traded at 1000.0n/a the future England international now trades as the 4.1n/a third favourite to end the season as the division’s top scorer.
The result means Spurs leapfrog Southampton to stand sixth in the table, one point behind Liverpool, three off Manchester United and four adrift of Arsenal. Maurico Pochettino’s are accordingly the outsiders in that quartet, trading at 6.05/1 to end the season in the Champions League places.
QPR are still in the bottom three and can be backed at 1.331/3 for the drop.
Bradford and Reading will replay at the Madejski Stadium after the first FA Cup game of the weekend ended in a goalless draw.
A sell-out crowd watched the League One side put up a determined showing against Championship opponents, but neither side could break the deadlock, although each struck the woodwork.
The 0-0 final score was backed at 13.012/1. Reading are 28.027/1 to win the cup, Bradford are 55.054/1.
