We have another fantastic fixture waiting including Liverpool this weekend. After a disappointing 1-1 draw against Manchester United last Sunday they are hoping to bounce back on winning ways in the Premier League when they are hosting Spurs at Anfield this Sunday.
It’s a replay of the Champions League Final from Madrid back in June but it’s also fair to say that it’s a game between two clubs where the roads they’ve walked since that night at Wanda Metropolitano have been miles apart. To find other best betting tips simply visit our dedicated team.
As we all remember Liverpool won the game after an early Salah penalty and a late Divock Origi finish for 2-0 and Jordan Henderson could raise Liverpool’s sixth “Ol’ Ears” up in the Spanish sky.
While Liverpool decided to have a quiet summer, building on the squad that already had pushed Manchester City to a photo finish in the Premier League and winning the Champions League, the summer was more of a rollercoaster for the North Londoners.
The whole summer was a filled with rumours of Christian Eriksen wanting away, with Real Madrid in pole position, while Mauricio Pochettino did what he could to publicly speak about how he needed funds to invest in his team.
Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In Liverpool v Tottenham
Tanguy Ndombele did sign quite early and it looked like that could be the start of a spending spree for the Lillywhites. But it really never took off. There were a lot of rumours including Paulo Dybala but at the end of the day the Argentinian remained at Juventus. Instead, Spurs managed to finalize deals for Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon on the final moment of the window, but both are yet to make an impact with the team.
Even though they found their way to a win on the opening day against Aston Villa, after being 1-0 down at home, there was a feeling straight away that this was a Tottenham side that was moving backwards rather than showing progress compared to last season. Being nine games into the Premier League season now, Tottenham have only managed to add two more wins to their tally while also recording three defeats and three draws. The last one against Watford, at home, last weekend.
What’s most bizarre to Spurs is how they’ve played away from home this season, getting draws at both The Etihad against Manchester City and at The Emirates against Arsenal, while they’ve more or less been outplayed by both Leicester and Brighton and lost at King Power and AmEx Stadium.

We actually have to go back all the way to January 20’th for an away win in the league for Spurs, beating Fulham 2-1 in a London derby.
Liverpool on their hand, we all know, have been as strong as you could ever imagine this season. You could argue that there are more to ask for in terms of fluidity from the front three and another level of stability from the defence but the fact that the lost points at Old Trafford was the first they’ve lost all season surely speaks volume.
Liverpool sits top of the table with six points down to Manchester City and their focus right now is to maintain that distance over the games against Spurs and Aston Villa (away) before they clash together with their rivals at Anfield before the next international break.
On a normal day in a normal season Liverpool you could probably argue that a draw for Liverpool on Sunday against Spurs still would be quite a decent result. We just learnt that Spurs played a draw against Manchester City so why wouldn’t Liverpool be okay with that? Well, this season is not about doing good, or even great, this season is about being outstanding when it comes to collecting points.
Liverpool v Tottenham Tips
Liverpool Find Their Way To Win
Last season’s fixture between the two teams at Anfield saw Liverpool win it in the absolute final stages of the game, after a clumsy situation from a corner. I’m not saying we’ll see a copy paste on Sunday, but Liverpool’s strength to push on and give their all to the final whistle could be decisive. I’m expecting a close game, but with a home side, that finds their way to win it. We’re backing Liverpool To Win at 8/15.
With Spurs’ heavy start to the season it was a perfect night for them on Tuesday in the Champions League where you could finally see glimpses of the thrilling attacking options we know that they possess with players like Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son. A 5-0 thrashing of Red Star Belgrade was exactly what the team needed to gain strength ahead of their trip to Anfield.
Liverpool have also proven to be a bit more vulnerable in their defence this season and at home where Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson leaves a lot of space behind them, there will be room for a fast player like Heung-Min Son to hurt Liverpool on the counter.
Son To Make Sure That Both Teams Scores?
Our final two bets are built on the combination of that where we both back Both Teams To Score at 11/17 and also adds Heung-Min Son as Anytime Goalscorer at 17/5. Both bets played separately.
Sunday will mean another electric night at Anfield and Liverpool will know how much the game could matter for the rest of the season. Adding a win against Spurs to the fact they’ve already beaten Chelsea and Arsenal would send a message to Manchester City that The Reds’ title ambitions are on a different level this season.
It would also mean that Liverpool have only Manchester City left to play in what we still refers to as the “Big Six” while City are still to play all but Spurs.
We think it will be a tight game where both teams will score but we expect Liverpool to win it in the end and set the Anfield faithful into a Sunday night on town. Because they will also know that a win against Spurs will count for more than just three points at the end of the day.
