Tottenham vs Liverpool Betting Preview
Tottenham have ave not been in action since December 5 as they have seen their last three games in all competitions postponed due to COVID-19 outbreaks. Their last outing saw Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez and Son Heung-min going on the scoresheet in a 3-0 win over rock bottom Norwich City. Spurs are now 7th in the league, a whopping 16 points behind league leaders Manchester City, but they have three matches in hand. Antonio Conte's men have scored just 16 goals so far this season - only four teams have scored fewer.
Since losing 3-2 to West Ham just over a month ago, Liverpool have recorded 6 Premier League wins in a row. The Reds have put four goals past Arsenal, Southampton and Everton but also beat 1-0 Wolves courtesy of a last-gasp goal. On Thursday Liverpool had to come from behind against Premier League strugglers Newcastle to win 3-1. Jurgen Klopp's men trail Man City by a single point and have now scored in an all-time club record 32 consecutive games. Their tally of 48 goals netted in 17 outings this season is eight clear of the next highest scorers in the top flight.
Tottenham (3-4-3): Lloris; D. Sanchez, Dier, Tanganga; Emerson Royal, Winks, Ndombele, Sessegnon;
Antonio Conte still has a raft of COVID-affected absences to juggle and repeatedly stressed in Friday's press conference that he would have to "pay great attention" to his returnees, that they needed "time to be fit". Sergio Reguilon was part of this group but has been carrying a niggling injury. Emerson Royal, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura, Bryan Gil, Ben Davies and Oliver Skipp might be among the unnamed players who tested positive for Covid-19 over the last fortnight and are major doubts here. Cristian Romero remains sidelined.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Konatè, Robertson; Thiago Alcantara, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Manè
Liverpool had their own players missing through COVID against Newcastle - probably Fabinho, Curtis Jones and Virgil Van Dijk. Jurgen Klopp could welcome back Roberto Firmino into the starting XI for the first time since the start of November, with Diogo Jota expected to make room. James Milner is likely to start in the middle of the park, alongside Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. At the back, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konatè will likely again be paired at the centre. Harvey Elliott (ankle), Nathaniel Phillips (cheekbone), Adrian (calf) are similarly sidelined, while Divock Origi (knee) hasn't featured since the Champions League win over AC Milan earlier this month and his participation is also in doubt.
Our Tottenham vs Liverpool Predictions
Under Conte, Spurs have been functional rather than fantastic. It will be hard to see improvements as their training centre has been closed last week and players trained individually. Liverpool have won their last eight games in all competitions, including their last six in the league. Furthermore, they are unbeaten in 16 of their last 17 Premier League games against Spurs. It is hard to back against the Reds at the moment and, given their formidable run of form. We believe this could end with a 3-1 Liverpool victory. Mo Salah, of course, is the red hot favorite to put his name on the scoresheet.
