Title chasing Tottenham visits Merseyside to face Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday in a major test of Mauricio Pochettino’s team’s credentials.
Liverpool v Tottenham
Live on Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD
The home side still have an outside chance of making the Champions League spots this season, but have to put together a winning run if they are to have any chance of catching fourth-place Manchester City.
The Reds are seven points behind the mis-firing Citizens, but also have a game in-hand on Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Jurgen Klopp’s side had claimed three consecutive wins in the Premier League, before losing 3-2 at Southampton last time out, despite holding a two goal lead.
Liverpool have a fantastic record of beating Spurs in five of the last six meetings in all competitions, but the last time these two teams met it finished goalless in the reverse fixture.
There is simply no knowing what Liverpool team will turn-up, but if you fancy a Reds victory in this one the side from Merseyside can be backed at odds of 8/5 with BetVictor.
Tottenham know that they will have to end that poor run of form against Liverpool if they are to have any chance of staying in the race for Premier League title. Pochettino’s side trail league leaders Leicester City by five points and know nothing but a win will do to maintain that chase.
Spurs have been relatively consistent of late losing just once in their last ten outings in the Premier League. The side from north London have not won at Anfield 2011 and have won just twice at Liverpool during the Premier League era. Pochettino’s side are odds of 19/10 with BetVictor.
The draw could be a solid bet in this clash, simply because of Tottenham’s poor record at Anfield and Liverpool’s unpredictability. The draw can be backed at odds of 12/5 with SkyBet, which looks like the sensible bet.
I really cannot see past the draw in this clash. Liverpool blow hot and cold and Spurs struggle at Anfield, so my big tip is go for the draw at 23/10 with SkyBet
