Liverpool vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
This in all probability will be the match of the season, and has the marking to be a potential title-decider as well. These two teams are placed at the top of the table, and have the same number of points.
Moreover, both teams dropped points the preceding match-day, and will be ruing the chance they squandered to have the sole lead.
The Reds are the reigning champions, and so far they have shown that their previous campaign was not a fluke. However, they simply have failed to show the dominance of their 2019-20 season – and a major reason for that would be their injuries.
Still they are managing to hold on. But they will be tested to their limits this Wednesday by the Spurs.
Jose Mourinho’s men are placed at the top of the table, and frankly the Portuguese gaffer has outperformed every other manager till now in the league – with the possible exception of Carlo Ancelotti.
In addition, either squad has shown an affinity to scoring goals, and with the firepower they both possess, it’s no wonder as well.
Moreover, previous h2h encounters have also had goals in plenty.
For the reasons, expect a high-scoring thriller between these two teams – as either will give their 100% on the pitch for the first spot in the standings.
Liverpool vs Tottenham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the former eleven clashes had goals from both teams.
- Five of the preceding seven match-ups had three or more goals.
- Jurgen Klopp’s men had scored two or more goals in seven of the last nine meetings.
- Since 2014, only once have the Spurs failed to find the back of the net at Anfield.
Liverpool vs Tottenham: Prediction
The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, by Fulham. In the meantime, Jose’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road by Crystal Palace.
Going on, these two teams have combined to record a total of two losses from their total 24 matches, and scored a total of 51 goals in the process.
In addition, Klopp’s men had failed to score in just two of their preceding thirty fixtures, and failed to do so just once at home all through 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts failed to find the back of the net in three of their previous thirty games, and in just two of their former fourteen away match-ups.
On top of all that, these two are currently the best teams in the PL, and majority of their past h2h clashes have also had produced goals in high numbers.
Taking these stats into account, expect a goal-fest this Wednesday.
