Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur prediction

Liverpool will host the Spurs in the most interesting clash of the Premier League Round 32. The Reds have been rather successful in their previous matches against Mauricio Pochettino’s charges and will look for the continuation of the positive run, while Tottenham need a win in order to keep track with Leicester.

Liverpool have been scoring for fun of late

Before the trip back to Dortmund, Jurgen Klopp first needs to host Mauricio Pochettino’s charges. The Reds will want to bounce back to winning ways after the defeat against Southampton in the previous round (3-2). The loss put an end to Liverpool’s three-game winning streak just when the fans started thinking that their team have finally adopted Klopp’s way of playing football. And even though Anfield outfit went two goals ahead, their serious drop in form during the second half resulted with three goals in Mignolet’s net. Nevertheless, the team from Merseyside have been rather productive in front of opposition goal of late, with fifteen goals in the last five league matches. Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and even Divock Origi have been putting Lallana’s and Coutinho’s balls into good use of late and, taking under consideration that two Tottenham’s main defenders, Alderweireld and Vertongen, could miss the game, chances are Klopp’s forwards will continue their efficient run.

Alberto Moreno is doubtful for the match, since he still has issues with his hamstring injury, but could appear on the bench at least. Danny Ings is out, as well as Lucas Leiva, Joseph Gomez and Jordan Rossiter, while Roberto Firmino, Christian Benteke and Divock Origi had some injury problems, but are expected to be in the team.

The amazing Kane

The Spurs still have a realistic possibility to mount a serious title challenge, provided that they continue with their outstanding displays, since there is still enough time for the Foxes to make a mistake. The Spurs have been flying high of late, if we disregard the slip-up against the Hammers. Harry Kane is mostly to blame for Tottenham’s impressive performances. The young starlet has been scoring for fun of late and managed to take the lead in the goal scoring chart with amazing five goals in his last three matches. He apparently took his league form to the national team and was on the scoresheet against Germany. Kane will most certainly present the biggest danger for Liverpool’s defenders, alongside Dele Alli, the teenager who is already considered as the future of England’s national team. Even though Pochettino will have some problems in forming his defensive line for the forthcoming clash, his forwards are in top form, so I do expect a goal or two for the visitors.

Toby Alderweireld is a doubt, due to stomach problems, which is why he missed the game against Portugal. Jan Vertongen is out, as well as Nabil Bentaleb and Clinton N’Jie, while Erik Lamela awaits the final decision of the medical staff.

Quick Facts

  • Liverpool are on a six-game undefeated run against the Spurs
  • Jurgen Klopp’s charges recorded a single defeat in their last seven league fixtures (W3 D3)
  • Tottenham suffered just two losses on their travels this term
  • White Hart Lane outfit managed to win just once at Anfield in this century
  • LFC fans saw more than 2.5 goals per game on average in their last three clashes in Merseyside

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tip

Two efficient attacks are facing each other this Saturday afternoon. Both managers will go for a win, so I expect Liverpool and Tottenham to go storming to attack, as it was the case last season. Bearing in mind that both teams play offensive football, I truly believe that Anfield will witness yet another spectacle this time out.

Tip: Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 2.05 (21/20) @10BetVictor
