If you take Manchester United out of the equation that figure rises to 90% which equates to 1/9. Backing the top five blindly would have produced a massive return and Tottenham can continue the trend today.

Palace rely heavily on Wilfried Zaha like Tottenham would be lost without Harry Kane’s goal but Zaha plays today and is a potential creator of goals.
