Liverpool v Tottenham betting tips: Reds can hit summit against top-four hopefuls

| 05.05.2022

Odds, preview and Liverpool v Tottenham betting tips

Liverpool’s clash with Tottenham on Saturday night is undoubtedly the biggest game in the Premier League this weekend in a match which could have a big say in the title race and the battle for the final top-four spot.

The Reds return to Merseyside having fought back from two goals down to reach the Champions League final with a 3-2 victory at Villarreal, so the mood at Anfield will be buoyant as they look to leapfrog Manchester City and go top of the table for 24 hours at least with a win which would keep their quadruple hopes alive.

Spurs are involved in a fight of their own in a top-four scrap with north London rivals Arsenal, but the Reds are 4/9 favourites to win at Anfield as we look at the main talking points to unearth some Liverpool v Tottenham betting tips.

Liverpool v Tottenham form

Liverpool are just a point behind leaders Manchester City and a draw would be enough to send them to the summit but in truth they will probably need to win their remaining four games if they are to wrest the Premier League trophy from Pep Guardiola’s side.

The Reds’ form has been sensational lately, not that you would have known it from their first-half performance at the Estadio de la Ceramica where the Yellow Submarine held a 2-0 lead before the visitors rallied with three goals in 12 second-half minutes from Fabinho, substitute Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane.

Despite conceding twice, Liverpool’s defence has generally been watertight, winning 13 of their last 15 top-flight games, with 11 of those victories involving clean sheets.

Liverpool, the only team unbeaten at home in the Premier League this season, are 17/10 to win to nil once more or 5/4 to be ahead at half-time and full-time as they have been in 11 of their 17 games at Anfield this season.

They have also won both halves on 10 occasions at home and can be backed at 5/2 for an 11th against a Spurs team that failed to get a shot on target in a 1-0 defeat by Brighton and goalless draw with Brentford, but bounced back with a 3-1 victory over a much-changed Leicester team last weekend.

Spurs, 13/8 in the Premier League top-four odds, are one of only two teams to have won at Manchester City this season and are 6/1 to pull off another coup, 18/5 to draw or 9/5 in the double chance market bearing in mind they have yet to lose against the top two this season.

Spurs have been drawing at the break in 10 of their 17 away games this season – the third highest – so we go 16/5 on Draw HT/Liverpool FT, while Draw HT/FT is 6/1.

Liverpool v Tottenham head to head

The teams drew 2-2 in a north London thriller in the week before Christmas when Son Heung-min scored a second-half equaliser five minutes after Liverpool went ahead through Andrew Robertson who was later sent off for a foul on Cristian Romero.

A score draw is priced at 9/2 and 2-2 is 14/1 considering that was the scoreline in both of the Reds’ clashes with Manchester City and the trip to Chelsea this season.

On the subject of correct scorelines, Liverpool have won this fixture 2-1 in each of the last three seasons and are 7/1 for a fourth or 9/5 to win and concede, while both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is evens which would have paid out in the last four campaigns.

Liverpool v Tottenham team news

Roberto Firmino has missed the last five games with a foot injury, but is unlikely to be in the starting line-up even if he recovers, just like Divock Origi who was back on the bench at Villarreal following illness.

Diogo Jota was taken off at half-time and replaced by Diaz which turned the game, so the Colombia winger could be back in the starting line-up.

Aside from long-term injuries Matt Doherty and Oliver Skipp, Spurs boss Antonio Conte only has concerns over Sergio Reguilon, who missed Sunday’s win against the Foxes with a groin problem.

Lucas Moura started that game, but came off 10 minutes into the second half, replaced by in-form Swede Dejan Kulusevski, who is expected to start.

Goalscorer odds

Mo Salah has scored just twice in 11 games in all competitions yet he is the 3/1 favourite to break the deadlock or 10/11 to score, so it may be worth looking elsewhere in this market.

Mane has seven goals in nine appearances and is 9/2 and 7/5 in the two options, while Diaz is 11/2 and 15/8.

Fabinho has scored seven goals in 2022 having netted Liverpool’s first in Spain and is 11/1 to break the deadlock or 7/2 to get on the scoresheet.

Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have scored in the last two meetings between these clubs and are 28/1 and 22/1 to get the ball rolling respectively or 9/1 and 15/2 in the anytime market.

Son struck twice at the weekend and has scored in two of the last three encounters with Liverpool, so we go 11/2 and 15/8 on the South Korean, whose odds are shorter than those of Harry Kane (6/1 and 21/10).
