Premier League: Liverpool vs Tottenham preview


We'll have a great clash at Anfield Road on Sunday as fifth-placed Tottenham visit third-placed Liverpool in then most interesting match of the Premier League weekend. The reverse fixture was quite spectacular as well, Tottenham won it 4-1 with goals from Son Heung-Min, Dele Alli and a brace from Harry Kane. Liverpool have won two of the last six direct meetings in all competitions, Tottenham won just one, while the other three were draws. Tottenham have not won at Anfield Road since 2011.

Liverpool recovered from back-to-back defeats with a comfortable 3-0 victory at Huddersfield in midweek, but they have to show more consistency if they want to remain in the Premier League top four. Fifth-placed Tottenham are just two points behind the Reds at the moment and sixth-placed Arsenal are also hoping to get back into the race for a Champions League spot. Nathaniel Clyne is still sidelined for the home side, but Adam Lallana and Ragnar Klavan could recover in time for Sunday's match.

Tottenham produced a top-notch performance to defeat Manchester United 2-0 in midweek, extending their unbeaten run to nine games in all competitions. They are now just two points behind Chelsea and Liverpool and just five points behind second-placed Manchester United. Harry Winks remains injured for the visitors, Serge Aurier is also struggling with a knock and will most likely miss out again. Toby Alderweireld has a good chance of recovering before Sunday's game but he will have to face a late fitness test.

Probable line-ups:

Liverpool: Karius - Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson - Chamberlain, Henderson, Can - Salah, Firmino, Mane

Tottenham: Lloris - Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies - Dier, Dembele - Son Heung-Min, Alli, Eriksen - Kane

My prediction: Liverpool to win 3-2.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Liverpool win - 2.10
Draw - 3.75
Tottenham win - 3.60

    That was a quite entertaining game with few debatable refs decisions too which might of been more interesting than the game itself.

    In the end I didn't think Liverpool were harmed by the refs but from their own passivity second half which allowed Spurs to get back, fair result.
