Tottenham are still in contention for the title, but a loss here will see them fall even further behind the top and the gap may be too large to overcome already. Despite a bright start to the campaign, Spurs had a tough Christmas period which saw them drop several places after occupying the top spot for a brief period
Liverpool are in dreadful form and a loss at Anfield for the first time in almost four years to Burnley resulted in them now gaining a measly two points from their previous five games and plenty of questions are being asked of Jurgen Klopp’s side. They have a big few weeks ahead of them in what will be make or break in terms of their Premier League season with crucial games in the league against Man City, Everton and Leicester all coming up in the next 30 days.
The Reds have struggled to get goals in the league; failing to score in their previous four games. They need to fix this issue somehow then results will start going their way again.
Considering Liverpool’s lousy form as of late; now is a good time for Spurs to break their torrid record against the Reds. They’ve lost five in a row against Liverpool, and if they lose this one, it will be the first time they’ve lost 6 in a row against them. Liverpool won 2-1 at Anfield against their opponents last month, and Jurgen Klopp desperately needs a similar result. Roberto Firmino scored a last-minute winner in that one, and he’s at 23/10 to score again at any time. Tottenham have the second-best defence in the league, so not the ideal opponents for Liverpool to end their goal-scoring duck.
