Tottenham v QPR: No happy return in store for Harry at the Lane
Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham reign has started in perfect fashion with away victories in the Premier League and Europa League and now the Argentine can make it a hat-trick as QPR make their way across the capital.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp will make an emotional return to the club that he guided to the Champions League quarter finals, but we’re predicting a disappointing result for his new charges on the pitch in our best bets.
Tottenham left it late, very late, against West ham but in front of their home crowd for the first time under their new manager the Lilywhites are expected to overpower their newly promoted guests.
Spurs have beaten their west London counterparts in their last three home clashes in the top flight, and some dodgy defending from veteran defender Rio Ferdinand at home to Hull in game one, is a cause for concern for Redknapp.
Only Manchester City and Arsenal have beaten Spurs at White Hart Lane in 2014.
Tottenham have conducted all their scoring after the half-time oranges during their opening two fixtures of the season.
Meanwhile, QPR came closest to opening their Premier League account in the second period at Loftus Road, when
Charlie Austin fluffed his lines from the spot.
That Adebayor was rested for the midweek Europa League trip to AEL Limassol suggests Pochettino will be starting the gangly Togolese striker from the off against the R’s.
Adebayor scored 14 times for Spurs last season despite being frozen out of the team until November, and finished by notching in two of his last three home league games.
