Liverpool vs. Tottenham Betting Tips: Two data-driven picks from Anfield
Live on Sky Sports, Liverpool host Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday at Anfield. After some strong form in recent weeks Tipster Wizard returns with his best bets.
The hosts sit seventh in the league table with 53 points, seven behind the all-important Champions League spots. Since their dramatic 2-2 draw against the league-leaders Arsenal, Klopp’s men have won three consecutive league games scoring 11 goals in the process.
Liverpool are starting to pick up some form and they will need a near perfect record from now till the end of the season if they are to have any chance of finishing inside the top-4.
As for the visitors, they are on a horrible run of form winning just once in their last six games, including a humiliating 6-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle which caused their interim manager Cristian Stellini to be sacked.
There were signs of some improvement in their last league game against Manchester United as they came back from 2-0 down at half-time to grab a point and they will need to be at their very best to get a result at Anfield, a ground where Liverpool have lost just once all season.
It was a 2-1 win for Liverpool when these two sides met earlier this season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and another entertaining goal-fest can not be ruled out.
Calvin Ramsay, Bajcetic, Naby Keita & Firmino are out for Liverpool while Diogo Jota & Ibrahima Konate are doubtful.
Bissouma, Bentancur & Emerson Royal are out for Tottenham while Ryan Sessegnon & Hugo Lloris are doubtful.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Jones; Salah, Gakpo, Nunez
Tottenham possible starting lineup:
Forster; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Porro, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
Liverpool vs Tottenham Tips
I picked out this selection when I covered Liverpool’s visit to Elland Road a couple of weeks ago and it landed comfortably. They have been scoring and conceding goals for fun in recent weeks with this selection cashing in their last four consecutive league games.
It has landed in six of Tottenham’s last seven league games and was also a winner back in November when these sides last met this season. Both sides are scoring goals but their defences can not be trusted at the moment which makes this selection good value at 9/10 for a 1pt stake as our main selection.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is averaging the most key passes per game for Liverpool this season (1.9) and has registered five assists in just his last four appearances since he has started playing in a slightly more attacking role.
As for Romero, he averages the most tackles (2.5) and most fouls (1.6) per game for Tottenham this term and is also their most booked player with eight yellow cards to his name. Combining these two selections gives us a cracking longshot at 11/1.
