We’re taking a look at the vital midweek clash between Liverpool and Tottenham as the top two clubs in the league face off at Anfield!
Liverpool looked somewhat lethargic against Fulham at the weekend in which they only managed a point via a Mo Salah penalty late on in the game. The fixtures are coming thick and fast during the Christmas period, and they can’t afford to slack, especially since their opponents will see themselves as title challengers. Liverpool are at 77/100 to beat Tottenham.
Like their opponents, Spurs put in a disappointing performance during the weekend away at Crystal Palace and ended up drawing 1-1. They were winning for a large part of that match until Jeffrey Schlupp’s equaliser in the 81st minute. Spurs currently sit top of the table, but the 9th-placed team are only six points behind (before Tuesday’s games) meaning that any number of sides could win the league. Tottenham are at 7/2 to defeat their title rivals.
The head-to-head doesn’t look too kindly on Tottenham as the Reds have won the previous five meetings between the two with the last Tottenham win at Anfield being in May 2011. Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has a better record in Liverpool beating them there as Chelsea boss in both the 13/14 and 14/15 seasons. Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min have been in excellent form this season with nine and ten goals respectively and if Spurs are to win this one — it will likely be either if not both of them that make the difference. You can currently get odds of 4/6 on either player scoring. As any typical Mourinho side against a top team, Tottenham will soak up pressure, not allow Liverpool to get in behind the defence and hit them on the counter when they do receive possession of the ball.
