Tottenham v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 15th September 2018

Spurs need a win in this home fixture to reel in the Reds. Spurs won their opening three games of the term but suffered a loss against Watford just before the international break. So a win in this pulls them level on points with Liverpool who have started strong with four straight wins and apparently a defence to back up their powerful attack. Read our predictions for Tottenham v Liverpool.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs have won three and lost one of their four games played so far this season in the top flight. They opened with three wins on the bounce and then just before the international break they churned out a poor performance in a loss at Watford. That was not a good game from them and once again it showed that they really don’t have a backup plan when their fluently pretty football isn’t working on the day. This will be just their second home game for the season, their first one ending in a 3-1 success over Fulham. Harry Kane is the 7/2 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.).

Spurs are still at Wembley because of delays to their new stadium and on the Wembley turf last season they produced a league record of W13 D4 L2. So that was a good return from them and they will be keen to snap back to winning ways, especially in such a big game. Dele Alli, Hugo Lloris and a couple of others will be going through late fitness tests. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 13/20 odds as there’s enough quality around in both sides* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). Each of Tottenham’s last five league games have gone above the goal line. Spurs have come up with nine goals in their four games this season, with just the one clean sheet.

Liverpool News and Form

So Liverpool will be looking to expose those weaknesses that others have found in Tottenham’s defense this season. Liverpool have come out strongly having won all four games played so far but it hasn’t been all about their attacking flair. They have dug in there and really had to grind at times, and they have been successful at that. Last season they weren’t. Mo Salah has started the season in good scoring form, but it is Sadio Mane who has been the most impressive and he is at 15/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) for this one. This is Liverpool’s first real big test this season. A win in the game would be a huge statement from them.

It means that they would move six points clear of Spurs so early in the season. Out on the road, this season Liverpool have taken their wins at Crystal Palace and Leicester and they scored exactly two goals in both of those. A Liverpool 2-1 correct score market option is at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). There is a trend with Liverpool’s game in that they have been winning at half time and full time in each of their last five Premier League games. Defensively they have been very good this season with just one goal conceded. With them having lost just one of their last twelve against Spurs in all competitions, they will fear little at Wembley.

Tottenham v Liverpool Head to Head

It was Tottenham who came out on top in the league meetings last season. Spurs bagged themselves four points from the two games, including a big home win over the Reds to the tune of 4-1. The Reds may have only lost one of their last 11 league games against Tottenham but four of the last six meetings have ended in a draw. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six games between the two clubs in all competitions.

Tottenham v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: The Reds can land themselves a statement win in this big game as they head to the capital.

An away win is our betting tip for Tottenham v Liverpool.
