The match is over.
A tantalising match up sees two sides desperate to bounce back following underwhelming results last time out as both managers feel the pressure for very different reasons.
Tottenham’s record on the road is abysmal this season. Four games, zero wins and just two points whilst on home soil the Reds boast a 100% winning record. That is reason enough to back Liverpool for the win with popular sportsbooks but to get more value out of the inevitable home win, chucking in both teams to score is a good way to go. That is because the last four Premier League games between the two has seen both sides make the net bulge whilst despite their woes, Tottenham have scored in four of their six away games in all competitions this season.
LIVERPOOL TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Liverpool have been clinical this season and despite Manchester United ending their 100% winning run, Jurgen Klopp’s men still remain the only side yet to lose a game in this seasons Premier League campaign. Perhaps even more impressive though is that the Reds have scored in both halves in three of their last five games in all competitions whilst having netted in all but one of their competitive games this season. Backing the Anfield outfit to win both halves makes complete sense then when it comes to generating even more value from online betting sites in this mouth-watering clash.
LIVERPOOL TO WIN BOTH HALVES
Many people may look at this game and automatically think it will be a goal fest, however, quite the opposite is true. In fact, the last three meetings between the two has never yielded more than three goals making this a winning bet in the last 270 minutes of head to head football. Tottenham have also only four goals in their last four outings whilst the Reds have netted four in their last three in the Premier League.
UNDER 3.5 GOALS
Head to Head
The last time these two met was in that forgettable Champions League final. Liverpool won that night 2-0 to leave Spurs Mauricio Pochettino still seeking his first trophy and a Liverpool win over Tottenham has been a common occurrence in recent years. Aside from the Champions League last season, the Reds did the double over the Lilywhites winning both home and away by a 2-1 score line. Overall, Liverpool have claimed 83 wins over Spurs with Tottenham recording 48 wins and a total of 42 draws across all competitions.
Liverpool to win
Something is amiss with Tottenham at the moment and only one win in their last four Premier League games is testament to that. In any other year, a 1-1 draw away at Manchester United would be considered a good point, however, Liverpool have accelerated so far forward in recent years under Jurgen Klopp that there was an element of disappointment. The Reds have also won the last three games in a row against Tottenham whilst there is nothing to suggest Liverpool will not maintain their 100% home record this season.
