Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur - Betting Tips and Predictions

Mauricio Pochettino

GETTYMauricio Pochettino was delighted with Tottenham's 2-0 win against Man Utd

Both sides playing out a draw is priced at (3.60).

Liverpool have only lost one of their last 23 home Premier League games against Tottenham (W15, D7) - that sole defeat coming in May 2011.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hopeful of a return to the side here, perhaps in place of James Milner, while Virgil Van Dijk could also be due a recall after being left out in midweek.

There aren't many players who polarise opinion in the Liverpool fanbase quite like Emre Can but the Germany midfielder could have a key role to play this weekend. Four at the back.

Liverpool are unbeaten in 14 Premier League matches at Anfield - winning eight - since being beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace back in April.

Considering the firepower of both teams, Bet9ja has rolled out odds of (1.48) and (1.58) to see both teams score and more than three goals to surface respectively.

Tricky choices must therefore be made in attack, but first comes the equally-difficult decision of selecting two holding midfielders. Winks and Moura might get a start in what ought to be a more routine game in next Wednesday's fourth round FA Cup replay against Newport County, but to play Alderweireld and Rose as well would nearly certainly rule them out for next Saturday's crucial lunch time kick-off against Arsenal.

The German's willingness to go forward means Dembele would complement him well - the Belgian rarely ventures forward, having touched the ball just twice in the opposition box all season, though that does not make him your typical defensive midfielder, for his calmness and confidence on the ball is as strong as his willingness to retrieve it.

"If I had to pick one of them to make the top four, though, I would take Liverpool, and I expect them to turn Tottenham over".

Spurs took the lead after just 11 seconds as Christian Eriksen shocked the United defence before a spectacular Phil Jones own goal sealed the victory. The visitors are in good form and continued that in their 2-0 victory against Manchester United on Wednesday night. There's a world of difference between being fit and comfortable in training and taking on Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in a full-blooded contest in front of a crowd of 45,000.

Where do you begin with Salah?

One look at the list of Premier League transfer spending for the 2017/18 season told a tale of the goings on at Anfield.

Klopp's men hold a marginal advantage as they sit third, two points ahead of Spurs, who are fifth, as the race to finish in the three places behind runaway leaders Manchester City intensifies with Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal also in contention.

Last but not least, the talisman leading the line goes to none other than Harry Kane.

That relative lack of financial muscle, in particular compared to the two Manchester clubs, explains why Klopp and Pochettino have been widely lauded for the jobs they have done despite so far failing to win any silverware in England.
