Tottenham vs. Liverpool Tips and Predictions 17.10.2015
The international break is over and we are back with yet another exciting match before us. This Saturday we expect to see an enticing match on White Hart Lane. So far the Spurs showed impressive performance on both home and away matches. On the other side we have Liverpool who hasn’t lived up to its glorious history. In addition to this the upcoming match is Jürgen Klopp’s debut. Liverpool’s fans expect a lot from him since the club is not in the best situation imaginable. Nevertheless, both of them are among the greatest teams in the Premier League with individuals who can change the outcome of the game with a single move.
After 8 games played in the Premier League Tottenham Hotspurs take the 8th position on the table. They too had a rough start and slowly but surely they’re pulling themselves together. The Spurs showed us that they can make White Hart Lane a living hell even for the best teams in England like Manchester City. The citizens went home with no points after a devastating 4-1 defeat on their away match against Tottenham.
In the past 5 games Tottenham conceded only 3 goals and they proved to be a tough nut to crack. With 3 wins and 2 draws their current form promises a lot. They tend to value conceded goals more than scored. It’s not that they play over defensively, but they seem to find a draw results satisfactory. However, against great clubs the squad’s morale should go up. Tottenham making Jürgen Klopp’s debut a nightmare is highly likely to happen.
Danny Rose, Tottenham’s left back is expected to return from a wrist injury. Besides that Mauricio Pochettino shouldn’t have any major problems to keep White Hart Lane an undefeated bastion. As long as they don’t concede an early goal they have the upper hand.
Injured: H. Son, R. Mason, N. Bentaleb, A. Pritchard.
Doubtful: D. Rose.
Nobody expected a team with Liverpool’s reputation can have such a tough time earning valuable points. Currently ranked as 10th just one point behind Tottenham, but with a goal difference that’s way worse. Brendan Rogers got sacked several days ago leaving the club in an awful situation. Jürgen Klopp took his place and the fans already expect from him to save the club from total annihilation. He brought back his former club Dortmund to the top of the tables achieving unprecedented results in the club’s history.
In their first 8 games of this season the Reds encountered top tier clubs and teams that usually fight for survival in the Premier League. Liverpool failed to overrun both categories, showing poor performance when they should excel instead, took the dreams of the much desired title away from them.
Liverpool has a hard time scoring goals, both on guest and home turf. However, their magnificent striker Daniel Sturridge is back. On top of this Philippe Coutinho is expected to return for the upcoming game against Tottenham. Hopefully, Liverpool will start to play on the offence, with results.
After all, it seems like Brendan Rogers just didn’t have the means to cope with what challenges were scheduled for him. Slowly but surely Liverpool’s squad should be complete. From a neutral standpoint we hope Klopp will deliver improvements to the team for the sake of good football.
Injured: C. Benteke, J. Henderson, J. Flanagan, J. Gomez, D. Ings, R. Firmino.
Doubtful: D. Lovren.
Tottenham vs. Liverpool Predictions
It would be foolish not to consider a draw after 90 minutes of play. Although in the previous 5 encounters Liverpool had with Tottenham they are undisputed with 5 out 5 wins the present squad tells a different tale. A lot of things are happening on Anfield at the moment such as a new coach joining the team, strikers are returning from injury breaks etc. However, we saw Tottenham is a vicious host and this is none of their concern. The Spurs will give their best and they will try to use this shaky situation to their advantage.
Considering the fact Liverpool’s defense can’t uphold to its duty we can confidently say Tottenham will score at least one goal on Saturday. On the other side Liverpool’s lads will kick it up a notch and should be going on the offence this time around.
Because of this we expect both teams to play attractive football with a lot of chances and both teams to score with odds of 1.70 or 4/6. If you want to take on a different approach with higher risk but higher rewards as well, bet on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals with the odds orbiting around the 2.10 or 11/10 mark. We recommend you to place a bet on goals since the chances of seeing a draw results is rather high.
Watching spectacular games is for sure a great way to spend the Saturday’s afternoon, but winning some money while watching is a totally different thing. Place your bet and enjoy in the match!
