Liverpool vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Anfield Stadium.
Liverpool sit at the top of the table with a game in hand and a two-point gap to the 2nd placed Manchester City, as they host Tottenham for their Matchday 32 clash on their return to Premier League after the International break.
Reds have beaten Fulham in a narrow contest at Craven Cottage beforehand and now have four wins in last five outings across competitions, only held to a draw by Everton along the way. They’ve rediscovered their fine form up front and will now want to capitalize on it, having netted nine goals in their last three outings.
Tottenham have, on the other end, seen a more unpredictable spell of form and the Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund comes as they only bright spot lately. They’ve earned just one point in last four league outings – holding off Arsenal in a 1-1 draw – as Mauricio Pochettino’s men struggled on the road in losses to Burnley, Chelsea, and Southampton most recently. They will now want to shock Anfield but we don’t see them doing so!
Liverpool vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
Liverpool snatched a 1-2 win at Wembley this term with goals from Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino.
Reds have thus ended a two-game winless streak in head-to-head clashes and now look for a double they haven’t earned since 2014/15.
Tottenham beat Liverpool just once in the last 13 occasions, where they outclassed them in a 4-1 win here in 2017.
Liverpool vs Tottenham: Prediction
We will now back Liverpool to bag another exciting win over the rivals and capitalize on the Spurs’ woes of recent, as we go for a Home win at 1.55.
We have seen them very solid against tough rivals lately and feel this comes off as buying money for old rope at Anfield.
However, we don’t see Tottenham surrendering without shots fired and we now hope they’ll force Liverpool into a narrow contest too.
We’ll thus go for a YES on Both teams to score as well, which comes at 1.70 and could prove the best way to go about the fixture as both sides keep scoring and conceding on the regular.
