Stan Collymore predicts Tottenham v Hull
By Harvey Byrne
Stan Collymore has predicted a 3-0 victory for Tottenham against Hull at White Hart Lane on Tuesday evening.
The north London club are preparing to face the 19th placed side after losing 1-0 against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The defeat has left Spurs in fifth and they will be strong favourites to beat the Tigers, who held Crystal Palace to a 3-3 draw on Saturday.
14 places and 15 points separate the two sides and former Premier League striker Collymore has predicted an easy Spurs win on his personal Twitter account.
Palace 1 United 2. City 2 Watford 0. Stoke 2 Southampton 0. Spurs 3 Hull 0. WBA 2 Swansea 1.

However, the reemergence of Chelsea and Liverpool this season has made life harder for those clubs at the top.
Spurs still sit three points from Manchester City in fourth and have lost just two games in their opening 15 fixtures this season.
Failing to kill games off has been Tottenham’s main problems in the campaign with six draws alongside their seven victories this season.
However, the clash against Mike Phelan’s side presents a good opportunity for Spurs to get a morale raising victory with goals expected from the home side.
