Liverpool vs Tottenham Premier League Predictions

Premier League Liverpool vs Tottenham
Liverpool vs Tottenham Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 2-1.

This could prove to be one of the most important games of the season so early on as in form Liverpool take on a Tottenham side that cannot buy a win for love or money, yet have a good record away at top Premier League clubs so far this season.

Predictions

Liverpool will be the favourites for this game due to their form and the sheer amount of talent they have up front and at the back, but it would be foolish to write off Spurs in this one.

Liverpool come into this game off the back of a fortuitous 1-1 draw against rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford, a game in which VAR was heavily involved and one where the Reds weren’t at their finest.

Spurs failed to beat Brighton before the international break and failed to beat Watford on their return from the break, with both performances being way below their own lofty standards.

Jurgen Klopp’s side had been on a run of form that saw them win every game so far in the Premier League this season up until that draw at Old Trafford.

Spurs have been poor this season but two of their better results came away at top clubs, drawing 2-2 at Man City and 2-2 at the Emirates in the North London Derby, despite being 2-0 up.

The Reds will be favourites for this game and while it may seem like it could be a close one. A 3-1 win for Klopp’s side seems likely and it could be wise to go with a both teams to score bet.

 

Betting Tips

Liverpool are favourites for this clash so a home win not only seems rather likely, but also doesn’t come attached with too much risk. You can see Spurs scoring in this game much like they did in this fixture last season and this is among the best online betting odds. 888sport have it as 33/20 when combined with the Reds win.

These are lengthy odds for an outcome which is more probable than they reflect. You can see Liverpool scoring three in this one and you can definitely see Spurs scoring too while it’s also likely that Liverpool will come out with the victory which makes this a smart bet, with it rated at 19/2 by 888sport.

Head to Head

173 games have been played between Liverpool and Tottenham, with the Merseyside club taking the win on 83 occasions, Spurs winning 48 of the games and a draw being the result 42 times across 110 years.

Stats

  • The first match resulted in a Tottenham win at White Hart Lane, in front of a reported crowd of 25,000 fans.
  • It’s been eight years since Spurs won at Anfield, with Rafa Van Der Vaart and Luka Modric scoring to give Harry Redknapp’s side a 2-0 win in May of 2011.
  • That was only one of two wins Tottenham have had at Anfield in the Premier League era, with the other coming in 1993 when Teddy Sheringham scored a brace to cancel out Nigel Clough’s opener to give Ossie Ardilles’ Spurs the 2-1 win over a Graeme Souness-led Liverpool.
  • The last fixture was earlier this year when Liverpool were rather lucky to get the win as a Toby Alderweireld and Hugo Lloris mix up gave the Reds a last minute winner in a game where perhaps a draw would’ve made more sense.
