The battle for a top-four finish in the Premier League hots up on Sunday as Tottenham travel to Liverpool and fifth-placed Spurs are just two points behind the Reds ahead of this trip to Anfield…
- Liverpool are unbeaten in the league at home this season – Won Seven, Drawn Five
- Tottenham have won one of 18 away games at the ‘top-six’ under Mauricio Pochettino – Drawn Six, Lost 11
|Sunday 4th February – 4.30pm||Odds||Won/Lost||Bet|
|Liverpool v Tottenham|
| Harry Kane to score anytime
|@ 13 / 10||
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will have been buoyed by their 2-0 win over Manchester United at Wembley in mid-week but they have generally struggled on the road against the better teams in the division, with Spurs winning just one of 18 away matches against the traditional ‘top-six’ since Pochettino took charge of the club.
Spurs have already lost at Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester this season, while their record in this Liverpool v Tottenham fixture makes for painful reading.
The North London side haven’t won at Anfield since 2011, drawing two and losing five since, and they are 11/4 underdogs for victory (Bet Victor).
Spurs did hammer Liverpool 4-1 when they met at Wembley in October but that was their first success in ten league meetings with the Reds overall, with Liverpool currently 11/10 for victory.
*Odds correct as of 2nd Feb, 11:16. Odds are subject to change.
Kane Is Able
Liverpool have only lost one of 15 matches against the ‘big six’ at Anfield since Jurgen Klopp was appointed manager and they do tend to raise their game for these occasions, albeit it is difficult to back a side that has lost to Swansea and West Bromwich Albion in recent weeks with any confidence.
Klopp’s side have looked decidedly shaky defensively, keeping just one clean sheet in seven, and they will give Tottenham chances.
Harry Kane has scored four goals in six league appearances against Liverpool, including a brace and an assist in Tottenham’s 4-1 romp at Wembley in October. The striker has scored in two of his three visits to Anfield too and he is a stand-out 13/10 to score at anytime (Coral).
