Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips: Is it win or bust at Anfield?
Odds and tips for Premier League clash
The Premier League returns this weekend, and there’s a huge game that dominates the action.
Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday, with three points taking on added importance with a handful of games to go.
The hosts are in a battle for the Premier League title with calls for this being their toughest remaining fixture of the season.
Can the Reds supercharge their title bid, or will Spurs return to winning ways? We’ve got a full rundown of the clash below.
Liverpool haven’t lost to Spurs at home in a run dating back to May 2011.
Rafael van Der Vaart and a Luka Modric penalty helped seal a 2-0 victory for Tottenham back then, which featured Ledley King and Michael Dawson in the away side’s back four.
The latest fixture ended in a 2-1 away win for the Reds earlier in the campaign, who have only lost once to Spurs since 2012.
The home side are likely to go 4-3-3 with Joel Matip partnering the colossal Virgil van Dijk in defence.
Jurgen Klopp will have to decide whether he sticks with the tried and trusted trio of James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum.
He could elect for Fabinho in the anchor role in the middle. The famed front-three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are usually the first names on the team-sheet.
Mauricio Pochettino’s line up could need a little more guesswork. Moussa Sissoko has shown enough this campaign to earn a role in midfield though.
He’ll be joined by Dele Alli and Victor Wanyama, although Harry Winks should be back in contention.
Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane should get ample service from Christian Eriksen in the number-ten role.
Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld will have to be at their absolute best to tame the in-form Mane this afternoon.
It’s often been a one-man salvo in recent weeks with Mane coming up with some vital goals in the title run-in.
Wijnaldum is often the man for the big occasion, if he or Sissoko get a hold of things in midfield it could be crucial to the outcome of the match.
Kane may be the main man, but Son has been vital to Pochettino’s swashbuckling football this season.
This could end up in a goal-fest with Over 3.5 Goals at 8/5 and Over 4.5 goals 18/5.
Tottenham are in need of three points to help secure Champions League football for next season.
The Lilywhites are 9/2 to bag the victory, both teams to score in an away win is 8/1.
Mane to continue his hot-streak in front of goal is 11/10 anytime.
Xherdan Shaqiri was the match-winner over Manchester United earlier in the season. The Swiss international is 9/5 anytime.
Kane is at 5s to score first, while Fernando Llorente could come on to cause havoc and is at 8s to bag last.
