Live on Sky Sports
By the time this game begins, Liverpool could be only three points clear at the top of the Premier League. That will be the case if Manchester City can beat Aston Villa on Saturday. Liverpool dropped their first league points of the season last weekend. They defend their 100% home league record against Tottenham. The Londoners had a good win in midweek (as did Liverpool), can they repeat that at Anfield?
Liverpool may have lost their 100% league record last weekend but still top the table. They bounced back to winning ways with victory in Gent in midweek. With Mo Salah back fit, their fearsome forward line will hope to cause more problems for Tottenham on Sunday. You can get 5/6 (1.83) at BoyleSports on Liverpool winning their first Premier League title this season.
The Reds have turned Anfield into a fortress with no league defeats in the last 44 games. All of their home games have been won this season and they are 1/2 (1.5) at Paddy Power to beat Tottenham. It’ll be a good test for them though. The November showdown with Manchester City is getting closer and Liverpool will want as big a lead as possible before that encounter.
Tottenham have had a torrid time of late but might have turned a corner in midweek. They beat Red Star Belgrade 5-0 in the Champions League but need to build on that result. The London club begin the weekend in seventh place, five points behind the top four. If you think they can still finish in the Champions League places, Bet365 will give you 13/8 (2.61).
By the time this match kicks-off, Tottenham could well be in the bottom half of the table. They are only four points above the relegation zone and one key problem Spurs have is their away form. They have not won an away league game since February and earned just two points from ten games. In eight of those matches they have conceded at least twice. If you fancy a bet on this game, go to Betbull and check out their new offers.
Tottenham fans might think that a corner has been turned but it’s how they play away from home that will provide further evidence. Can they finally get an away win? The odds of that are 5/1 (6.0).
Liverpool have won their last three games against Tottenham. The last of course was the Champions League Final. Five of the last seven games have had over 2.5 goals scored in them. It’s 4/7 (1.57) at Betfair that stat comes up in this game. Between 2015 and 2016, these two clubs had three straight draws. A stalemate in this match has odds of 7/2 (4.5) if your wager is placed with Unibet.
Trent Alexander-Arnold missed Liverpool’s midweek Champions League game but is available for this match. Andy Robertson is also expected to be fit but they will be without Xherdan Shaqiri with Joel Matip doubtful. Tottenham are still without Hugo Lloris but Ryan Sessegnon may play some part in this game.
Tottenham are struggling away from home and it’ll take a great performance to get something from this game. Liverpool’s home record continues to be impressive and the odds on a home win with over 1.5 goals scored has odds of 7/10 (1.7) at Ladbrokes.
