Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur

Date published: 3/31/2019 5:11:53 PM

Liverpool will look to extend their impressive home league record when Tottenham come to town on Sunday.

bet365 pre-match odds: Liverpool 3/5, Draw 10/3, Tottenham 5/1

MATCH PREVIEW

The Reds last tasted defeat in the Premier League at Anfield in April 2017 when Crystal Palace claimed a 2-1 victory.

Liverpool fans can also take comfort in their record against sides placed in the top six this term, having lost just one of eight encounters.

Victory will ensure they are top of the pile come the end of the weekend and they can’t afford any further slip-ups, with rivals Manchester City breathing down their neck.

Full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who withdrew from duty with England, with a back problem will be assessed. Xherdan Shaqiri is also a doubt after missing both of Switzerland’s games with a groin problem.

Long-term absentees Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are nearing returns although Sunday’s game comes too soon.

Tottenham have lost their way in 2019 and are without a win in their last four league outings, losing three and drawing once.

Their record against Liverpool doesn’t make for pleasant reading either, losing eight of the last 13 meetings across all competitions, while they have only won once in the last 24 visits to Anfield.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be without midfielder Eric Dier after he sustained a muscle injury in England’s win over the Czech Republic.

Harry Winks is also set for another week on the sidelines although Kieran Trippier could come back into the fold. Serge Aurier suffered a hamstring injury in Ivory Coast’s victory over Rwanda last weekend and will miss out.

Harry Kane, who boasts 11 goals in his last 12 appearances for Spurs, will be licking his lips at the prospect of heading to Merseyside, having scored in three of his four appearances at Anfield.

BETTING ADVICE

In this weekend’s Premier League main event, Liverpool will host Tottenham as the race for the title begins to reach its climax.

The international break seems to have come at a perfect time for Tottenham. Following a run of three defeats and one draw in four games, Spurs really needed time off to rest and rethink their strategy.

Liverpool, on the other hand, will be looking to maintain some consistency as they aim to reclaim their place at the top of the table. 

Tottenham haven’t won away at Anfield in eight years despite playing the same number of games there. This certainly reflects in their pre-match odds which currently stand at 21/4. 

With Spurs struggling away at Anfield and enduring a poor run of results in recent weeks, the recommendation is to back the hosts. 

Liverpool alone don’t offer a good price however, score/win doubles could be the alternative ways to bet. Sadio Mane to score and the hosts to win is priced quite attractively at 13/8. 

Three successive encounters between the two clubs have seen the both teams to score bet land. The price on that happening again is 4/6.

However, the main betting recommendation has to be Liverpool to win and both teams to score, at a value price of 39/20. 

Recommendation

Liverpool to win and both teams to score – 39/20 888Sport

    Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

    Date published: 3/31/2019 7:49:31 PM

    Toby Alderweireld's last-minute own goal helped Liverpool move back to the top of the Premier League after they beat Tottenham 2-1.

    Jurgen Klopp's men came into the game at Anfield under pressure in their title bid after Manchester City defeated Fulham on Saturday to move back to the summit.
    However, they got off to a good start when Roberto Firmino headed them in front just after the 15-minute mark.
    Spurs fought back and seemed to have snatched a share of the spoils when Lucas Moura levelled with 20 minutes remaining only for Alderweireld to put through his own net in the 90th-minute to hand Liverpool a vital win which takes them two points above City having played a game more.
    Spurs remain in third place, but they are just a point ahead of sixth-placed Chelsea in the fight for a top-four finish.
    James Milner and Jordan Henderson replaced Adam Lallana and Fabinho in just two Liverpool changes from the win at Fulham before the international break.
    Eric Dier and Kyle Walker-Peters were replaced by Kieran Trippier and Alderweireld from Spurs' 2-1 defeat at Southampton on March 9.
    Liverpool started strongly, but it was Spurs who had a couple of efforts at goal as they managed to get some space in the final third in the opening exchanges.
    However, the hosts' nerves were settled on 16 minutes when they took the lead as Firmino met Andrew Robertson's pinpoint cross from the left in front of goal and guided his downward header past the diving Hugo Lloris.
    Two minutes later Trent Alexander-Arnold got some space after more good build-up play from the left and hit a low strike which fizzed just wide of Lloris' far corner.
    There was a scare for Liverpool on 23 minutes when a mix-up between Alisson and James Milner when trying cut out Danny Rose's ball into the area, almost gifted Dele Alli with a tap-in.
    Liverpool appeared to be in control only for another mistake, this time a poor pass from Henderson on 33 minutes, handed Alli an opportunity to get a shot off at goal, but his effort from 25 yards dropped inches over the crossbar.
    Sadio Mane was close to easing the tension inside Anfield on 38 minutes when he capped a flowing move with an effort which Lloris was grateful to watch sail just wide of his far corner.
    Tottenham finished the half the stronger but could not find an equaliser as Liverpool looked relieved to go in at the break to regroup.
    However, it was Spurs who again looked bright and they had a great chance to level on 56 minutes.
    Harry Kane got a sight of goal down the left of the area before seeing his effort parried away by Alisson straight into the path of Christian Eriksen whose goalbound strike was somehow deflected wide off Robertson's outstretched boot.
    Spurs continued to probe and were rewarded with an equaliser in the 70th minute when Kane took a quick free-kick to send Trippier away and he played in Eriksen who helped the ball across the area for Moura to fire in from close range.
    Liverpool responded positively to being pegged back as Alexander-Arnold almost caught out Lloris with a cross-shot which the French custodian had to tip over the bar, before the Reds' full-back's 79th-minute corner dropped to Firmino who couldn't force the ball into the net from six yards.
    Moussa Sissoko should have put Spurs ahead on the counter-attack with just five minutes remaining when he went surging through the middle and blazed a left-foot strike over the top, while Heung-Min Son was waiting to be played in.
    Alli was next to go close to snatching a late goal on 88 minutes when curled a superb effort inches wide with Alisson rooted to the spot.
    However, it was Liverpool who grabbed a vital winner in the final minute of normal time when Lloris fumbled a close-range Mohamed Salah header into the legs of Alderweireld who watched in horror as the ball rebounded into his own goal.
