Premier League Liverpool vs Tottenham
Liverpool vs Tottenham Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 2-1.

With the Premier League title race hotting up every week, this game at Anfield could potentially be the biggest game of the season so far, as leaders Liverpool host a Tottenham side who now find themselves in a race for the top four and a win for both sides is imperative for their goals this season.

Predictions

It’s so tight to call a winner in this game with Liverpool so good at home and Spurs impressive on their travels, so if you are to pick a winner in this game, it’ll be by a very, very close margin.

Liverpool come into this game perhaps as slight favourites due to their form at Anfield, and will look to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 11 games – preferably with a win from their point of view.

Spurs need a win to reignite their season following four Premier League games without a win, with losses at Burnley, Chelsea and Southampton completely ruining their near-perfect form on the road.

Liverpool have the chance to do the double on Spurs after their 2-1 win at Wembley, something they haven’t managed to do against any other member of the top six this season.

The visitors will know that they will be under extreme pressure to win and to prevent Liverpool from getting all three points (from hopeful Manchester City fans) yet they haven’t managed to win at Anfield since 1993, which relevant bookies will keep in mind too.

It’s so hard to call a winner between these two, so a close game should be expected but given the recent form and the context of the game, a 2-1 Liverpool win could be in order.

Betting Tips

The odds on this bet reflect the likelihood of both teams scoring rather than Liverpool being such heavy favourites, with UniBet having this a 43/20 when combined with the Reds win. Spurs will definitely be good odds for a win but going with form and standing in the league, a Liverpool win with both teams to score is one of the better bets you’ll find for this weekend’s round of football.

This may seem like lengthy odds but in all honesty, it looks like one of the most likely to happen. If Spurs get an early goal and Liverpool get one back just before the break, going into half time level before Liverpool come steaming out of the blocks in the second half, this bet will look rather clever despite it’s long odds, with it rated at 18/5 by UniBet.
