Tottenham v Liverpool Past Meetings

These two met early on last season at White Hart Lane, with Danny Rose’s second-half strike cancelling out James Milner’s penalty.

In the reverse leg, Liverpool strolled to a 2-0 victory thanks to a two-minute first-half brace by the electric Sadio Mane.

Tottenham v Liverpool Stats

Liverpool are on a 10-game unbeaten run in all competitions against Spurs – winning seven of those. The last time the Lilywhites registered a win was in 2012 at White Hart Lane.

There were 16 yellow cards over the two head-to-heads last season – eight in each encounter.

Since Klopp took charge, Liverpool have won the most points in matches between the ‘big six’ in the Premier League (37 points).

Spurs have kept four clean sheets in their past five Premier League games after keeping just one in the seven before that.

Tottenham v Liverpool Team News

Danny Rose could make his first start of the season after coming off the bench against Real Madrid midweek. He’ll be competing with Ben Davies, who has also recovered from illness. Mousa Dembele is in line to return to the squad.

Jurgen Klopp has no new injury worries, with Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana his two key long-term absentees.

Reason for Tottenham v Liverpool Bets

Both sides come into the game off the back of a morale-boosting mid-week Champions League result. Liverpool flaunted their attacking flair in Slovenia, demolishing Maribor in a 7-0 thrashing. Spurs meanwhile took a point off European champions Real Madrid at the Bernabeu – a perhaps even more impressive feat given that Los Blancos had won 21 of their previous 23 home European matches. A loss on Sunday would therefore be a heavy comedown for either side.

Recent history suggests Klopp’s side have the upper hand- they’ve dominated Spurs in recent seasons, although the last two games at the Lane have been draws, and have the best head-to-head record against all of the other top teams in the Premier League. Nevertheless, this Spurs side is as stern as it’s ever been; a dangerous cocktail of an increasingly solid defence and a potent attack.

It certainly promises to be an exciting game, with both sides likely to exchange blows early on as they look to control the game. Physical blows are also likely, with the cards market tempting. In terms of the result, a draw seems the most likely result, with the Reds always likely to score whoever the opponent, but equally as vulnerable at the back – especially against a threatening attack. A draw can be found at 5/2 with Bet365.

For specific bets, both teams to score (BTTS) looks a likely option, and can be backed at 3/5 with Betfair, but there’s more value backing BTTS and a draw at 16/5 with Paddy Power.
