Three ways to back Liverpool versus Tottenham this weekend

| 09.02.2017

The pick of the Premier League action this weekend is very much at Anfield on Saturday night, when Liverpool host Tottenham.

Chelsea have all but ended both sides’ dreams of winning the title this season, but there’s still the small matter of a top-four spot and Champions League football on the line.

So, how’s it going to go down on Merseyside? We’ve picked out three markets we reckon should be coming good.

The Draw @ 9/4

Hosting an in-form Tottenham is the last thing Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp need. And only Man United have drawn more than Mauricio Pochettino’s men this season.

Added to that, the Reds have already shared the points in four meetings with top-six sides this term.

It’s easy to see these sides cancelling each other out, with Tottenham’s organised and effective units of midfield and defence ready to contain Liverpool’s free-flowing forwards.

Correct score 1-1 @ 5/1

And of course, should it be a draw then it’s got a score-draw written all over it, as happened in the 1-1 draw in the reverse tie in August.

Spurs have picked up score draws at Arsenal, Everton, Man City and Chelsea over the last 12 months.

And with Klopp’s men picking up 1-1 scoreline versus Man United and Chelsea this term, 5/1 looks generous.

Both teams to score @ 4/6

Over the last nine league meetings, this game has averaged over three goals per game.

And when you’re pitching Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane against Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen both goalkeepers will be in for a busy evening.

Both teams have scored in four of last five meetings too, and Spurs have only failed to net in one of their last five visits to Anfield.

Plus, Liverpool are the joint top-scorers in the division, but having conceded at least two goals to each of the bottom four Harry Kane and co should be confident of getting on the scoresheet.
