#Tottenham v Liverpool live betting tips#
There is a fascinating game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday evening, as Premier League leaders, Liverpool, visit Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham. These sides contested last season’s Champions League final with the Reds winning 2-0 and they now enjoy a commanding lead at the top of the EPL. They remain unbeaten, but this could be one of their more difficult tasks as they try to stay on track to claim their first ever Premier League title.
Here we preview the game and offer the best live betting tips.
When Jose Mourinho arrived at Spurs earlier in the season they improved immediately, seemingly scoring goals for fun – but they were also struggling to keep clean sheets and they still do. They have won just five of their last 10 EPL games, and only two of their last five games, which has seen them drop to sixth place, six points behind the top four.
Their home form has kept them challenging towards the top of the Premier League, winning six and drawing two of their 10 home games, whilst averaging over two goals per game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Liverpool are unbeaten in 37 league matches, a run that stretches back to January 2019. They are a staggering 28 points ahead of Spurs and will go into this game with a double figure lead at the top of the EPL. They have won 19 and drawn one of their opening 20 games this season and can boast a record of 10 successive wins, which includes clean sheets in their last five league games.
The Reds also have the best away record in the division, winning eight of their nine games on the road, but the only points they have dropped did come away from Anfield when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Manchester United. Liverpool average over two goals per game away from home and have conceded just five times on their travels.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last five games against Spurs, winning four of them including in last year’s Champions League final. Goals from Mo Salah and Divock Origi secured a sixth European Cup for the Reds, and when the sides met earlier this season, it was Liverpool who came out on top again.
Despite Harry Kane giving Spurs a first minute lead at Anfield in October, the hosts hit back with second half goals from Jordan Henderson and Mo Salah to claim another maximum points. The last time Tottenham beat Liverpool at ‘home’ was in 2017 when Spurs were using Wembley. A Harry Kane brace, plus goals from Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min gave them a comfortable win, despite a Mo Salah equaliser.
Liverpool did the double over Spurs last season, winning both games 2-1 and they will hope to repeat that feat on Saturday evening.
This game should see goals as both teams have been involved in 15 games that have seen over 2.5 goals. Tottenham have won four of their last five competitive home matches, and there has been an average of 4.2 goals per game during this run.
Incredibly, Liverpool’s 58 points from their opening 20 games is as many as they won in their 2004/05 Champions League winning season. The unstoppable Reds have also been ahead at half-time in 75% of their league matches so far, going on to win on all occasions.
In their previous five league meetings both teams have scored with the majority of the goals across those games arriving in the second half (55.56%), whilst an amazing four goals were scored in injury time – three of those to Spurs.
Mohamed Salah has scored four goals in his last five competitive games against Tottenham – and scored a penalty in the two most recent meetings between the clubs.
José Mourinho has only beaten teams managed by Jürgen Klopp twice in ten attempts, drawing four and losing four of the other games.
Liverpool will go into this game as favourites, but now that Harry Kane, who often scores against them, has been ruled out for six weeks with a muscle injury, the odds will be even shorter.
Liverpool are certainly the form side in the Premier League winning five out of five, whilst scoring 12 and not conceding during that run. Spurs do have a good home record, but the Reds have an even better away record, yet it feels this won’t be a straight-forward game for them.
We do see the home side scoring, perhaps Son Heung-Min will carry the main threat for Spurs, but Liverpool will have Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino leading their attack against a defence struggling to keep a clean sheet. We see over 2.5 goals, maybe over 3.5 goals and a Liverpool win.
