Live on Sky Sports
Tottenham are sixth in the Premier League and six points behind the final Champions League place. Current form isn’t great though and they face a tough task this weekend as they host runaway leaders Liverpool.
Tottenham have had some good moments since Jose Mourinho was appointed manager but current form isn’t so hot. They only have one win in their last five league and cup games and to make matters worse have Harry Kane out injured and he’s just one of several on the sidelines.
With a six point gap between them and the top four, Tottenham are 9/2 (5.5) at SkyBet to finish in the Champions League places. They only have seven points from their last five league games and just one from the last two.
Perhaps most worrying for Tottenham fans is those last two matches were against Norwich City and Southampton, losing 1-0 to the latter. Only one of their last eight home league games has been lost though and they are 15/4 (4.75) at BetVictor to beat Liverpool.
Liverpool remain the unstoppable ‘Jurgenaut’ as they head towards their first Premier League title. 13 points clear with a game in hand with 18 games to play is surely a position they can’t let slip.
Their statistics are frightening for any opponent to read. No league defeats in a year and 17 away matches in the Premier League without a loss. With 28 wins in their last 29 league games, can anyone stop them? You can get odds of 7/10 at Ladbrokes on them winning this match against Tottenham.
Liverpool have won their last four games against Tottenham. Eight of the last ten meetings have seen both teams score. You can get 4/7 (1.57) on that stat coming up at the weekend if your bet is placed with Ladbrokes.
Liverpool may be without James Milner who went off injured in the FA Cup tie against Everton. Tottenham will be missing Harry Kane, Tanguy Ndomble and Moussa Sissoko wit Harry Winks doubtful.
Tottenham are going through a bad patch and have major injury problems. That’s not quite what you need when up against a side in such good form as Liverpool. A bet on an away win with over 1.5 goals in the match has odds of 19/20 (1.95) at Betfred.
