MATCH PREVIEW: Liverpool V Tottenham Hotspur

It always feels like ages since my last post after an international break, not helped by the fact I missed providing a Southampton match report because my dissertation is crushing me... Anyway, enough of my life, it's Liverpool V Spurs!

Saturday's big match could prove very fruitful for the Reds who could do with the three points after that disastrous Saints result. Liverpool would also play a big role in the title race if they managed to get a win over Pochettino's side, pushing the title ever closer to the hands of Leicester.

Injuries for Liverpool mean they are still unable to call upon Lucas at the moment and at the time of writing, doubts remain over the fitness of Alberto Moreno, Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke.

For Spurs, Pochettino's side are looking pretty strong with just Vertonghen and Bentaleb definitely sitting out of Saturday's fixture.

Previous Meetings

The last time the two sides met was in October last year with neither side managing to find the back of the net at White Hart Lane. Spurs' last visit to Anfield created a bit more of an eventful game as Liverpool eventually walked away victorious after a 3-2 win thanks to an 83rd minute goal from Mario Balotelli.

The Reds have won four out of the last five meetings between the two sides in the league. In their last ten trips in the league to Anfield, Spurs have won on just one occasion.


Liverpool are currently 9th in the table on 44 points, Klopp's side have won three out of their last five in the league but lost in embarrassing fashion to Southampton in their last fixture.

Spurs currently sit in 2nd place chasing down Leicester, Pochettino's side have lost just one game out of their last ten in the league.

A straight win for the Reds on Saturday is priced at 6/4 at the moment while the draw is 23/10. I've been placing half time/full time bets a lot lately and I quite like the look of Draw/Liverpool for 5/1.

In terms of first goalscorers most will have their eye on Daniel Sturridge at 5/1 and also Philippe Coutinho who is priced at 17/2.

Enjoy the match folks, wherever you are watching!
