Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool: Close affair but goals guaranteed

| 15.12.2013

Goals have been a common occurrence in this fixture for many seasons now and with the wealth of attacking talent on display, the same can be expected in Sunday’s game.

In the total goals market, over 2.5 can be backed at 4/5 while over 3.5 goals is priced at 19/10.

It is not an easy tie to call with the teams separated by just three points as they challenge for the Premier League title and Champions League places. Tottenham are slight favourites at 7/5, while a Spurs victory in conjunction with over 2.5 goals can be found at a more enticing 7/2. Alternatively the equivalent in favour of a Liverpool win is priced at 13/5 while the draw can be backed at 17/2.

Although the result seems difficult to call, a 2-1 Tottenham victory holds considerable favour at 9/1. Spurs have won four out of the last five corresponding fixtures by this exact score. They have also won their last two games by this score in victories over Sunderland and Fulham.

However Spurs have struggled at home this season especially to score goals, managing just seven in seven. Liverpool meanwhile have scored 12 on their travels and with Spurs suffering injuries to defenders Vertonghen, Chiriches and Kaboul, away goals look very likely.

The man most likely to profit is Luis Suarez who, with 15 in 11 league games already, has shown the type of form he is in. Suarez is 11/10 to score and 4/1 to be the man to break the deadlock.

Another market which could be worth looking into is the penalty kick market. This fixture has seen more penalties than any other in Premier League history at 17. Therefore it could be worth investing in the penalty kick market, with a penalty being scored priced at 2/1 and a missed penalty priced at 9/1.
