Liverpool have won their last four encounters with Tottenham and are fancied to further extend that hoodoo in Saturday evening’s televised tussle.
The Reds have claimed three consecutive 2-1 victories in the Premier League and famously came out on top in June’s Champions League final in Madrid.
A repeat of that scoreline is 15/2 and appeals for our first Tottenham vs Liverpool prediction, while 39/20 for an away win and both teams to score is another option.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham have been plagued by inconsistency since Jose Mourinho took charge and Sunday’s 1-1 FA Cup draw at Middlesbrough was another patchy performance.
That followed on from picking up just one point from Premier League trips to basement dwellers Norwich and Southampton.
Losing Harry Kane to a hamstring injury has only added to the current feeling of concern amongst Spurs supporters.
Son Heung-min struggled to fill the void at Boro on his return from serving a three-match ban for his dismissal against Chelsea before Christmas.
“We have other players who can play as a striker,” insisted Son. “It is the gaffer’s choice. Every player should be ready to fight and compete.
“Harry is one of the most important players in the team and I don’t want to see someone injured, especially your team-mate, but now other players have to step up.”
Slow starts have become an issue, though, with Spurs trailing at half-time in each of their last four league games.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Liverpool odds, that makes 6/5 for the visitors to be ahead at the interval stand out.
Last Spurs EPL line-up: Gazzaniga, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Aurier, Sissoko, Sessegnon, Alli, Eriksen, Moura, NDombele, Kane.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool’s hectic schedule forced Jurgen Klopp to take drastic measures for Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Everton, but even a much-weakened line-up pulled through with a 1-0 triumph.
The Reds had to ride their luck early on, but grew in confidence before Curtis Jones fired in a superb decider on 71 minutes.
Midfielder Pedro Chirivella said: “It was a starting XI who probably never played together and in the first 20 minutes it was chaotic.
“After that, we got control of the game in midfield and started passing the ball to each other and creating chances.
“When Liverpool play our way, then it’s hard for any team, no matter who the players are on the pitch.”
That performance typified the confidence and self-belief Klopp has instilled throughout his whole squad, which has helped them power 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
The Reds have only dropped points once in 20 games in this competition and are on course to run away with the title.
Let’s finish off our Tottenham vs Liverpool betting tips by taking 13/10 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
Last Liverpool EPL line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Wijnaldum, Milner, Henderson, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Middlesbrough 1-1 TOTTENHAM – Lucas Moura
LIVERPOOL 1-0 Everton – Curtis Jones
Head-to-head: Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham, Tottenham 0-2 Liverpool, Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham, Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool
