What a day it has been in the Premier League! Chelsea flattened Manchester City at The Etihad, leaving Fabregas to be sent hurtling over the advertising boards. Sunderland beat the reigning champions and even Alan Par3dew got a win.
It has been an even better day for the nine lads who backed Harry Kane to score first and Tottenham to beat Swansea 5-0, at 66/1!
Kane bagged a dubious penalty in the 39th minute after Dele Alli ran across Kyle Naughton and fell to the floor. Some would call it a dive, some would call it the entrance to the pathway of a big odds winner…
The floodgates were soon opened, as Son smashed home a stunning scissor-kick. The sort that left these lucky winners turning to their mates and saying, “F**king hell, this might actually be on.”

Kane was filled with confidence – or he knew there was money at stake – as he bagged his second after half time. Christian Eriksen netted the final two, as Bob Bradley’s side have now let in four or more goals in their last two games.
Pochettino’s side had 28 shots in total, 15 on target and 60% possession, slaying the Swans with ease to pull themselves back into the title race.
Even more impressive than their performance was the nine punters who correctly predicted the Kane 5-0 scorecast. On top of those, 13 looked into their football crystal ball and sensed a 5-0 correct score. Their optimism definitely paid off.
