Competition: Premier League
Market: Tottenham and Liverpool to draw
Odds: 41/17 @ 888 Sport
Tottenham Hotspur welcome the visit of Liverpool to White Hart Lane this weekend, and the Londoners are the first opposition for a revamped Liverpool side under new manager Jurgen Klopp. Spurs have been in fine form this season, and are hoping to continue their unbeaten run in the league against a Merseyside outfit having struggled for wins in recent weeks. However, past meetings have been very one-sided, so it won’t be easy.
Tottenham’s only defeat in the Premier League came on the opening day of the 2015/16 season, and the Londoners have since picked up four points against the likes of Everton and Manchester City. Their form has been so impressive manager Mauricio Pochettino was named the Premier League Manager of the Month for a perfect 100% record in September.
They’re coming off the back of a draw away to Swansea City, and have been solid in their own backyard – boasting consecutive wins at White Hart Lane. Spurs have been very hard to beat this season, but they have lost each of their last five meetings against Liverpool in the Premier League. The last time Tottenham picked up a positive result was back in 2012. The previous two league meetings at White Hart Lane has seen Spurs suffer a thrashing without scoring.
However, this weekend’s outing promises to see a different outcome given the poor form of the visitors. Liverpool have won just once in their last six games, but are sure to put on a performance under new manager Klopp. But with the two sides having drawn seven games between them in the Premier League this season, a stalemate seems the likeliest outcome at White Hart Lane.
