What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Liverpool
Tottenham came back down to earth with a bump after seeing their 100 per cent start to the season ended by defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side had recorded a season-high rating following their impressive 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford the previous Monday.
Liverpool sit top after they preserved their unbeaten run by beating Leicester but we feel both teams will be happy with a point so 13/5 for a draw appeals for our initial Tottenham vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Tottenham’s Betting Odds
Pochettino had warned his side there was a bump in the road coming if they believed their own hype and his words came true as they defended poorly from set-pieces and barely caused any threat against the Hornets.
Tottenham went in front early in the second half when Abdoulaye Doucoure scored an own goal, but headers from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart in the space of seven minutes turned it around for the hosts.
The Argentinian said: “We conceded two goals that if you want to be a contender you cannot concede. People talk about the perception and not the reality. This is good to compare, some people talk about perceptions but the reality was on the pitch.
“The reality is if you want to be a contender we should win and win easy because everything was ready to win the game. That is very painful. We need to show more respect to this competition, we need to compete much, much better.”
Spurs won this fixture 4-1 last October thanks to two goals inside the opening 12 minutes before twice coming from behind to secure a dramatic 2-2 draw at Anfield in February.
Last Tottenham line-up: Vorm, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Davies, Dembele, Alli, Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Kane.
Tottenham will be without Hugo Lloris with a thigh injury and Dele Alli due to a hamstring problem sustained during the international break.
Forward Son Heung-min is back from a lengthy stint of international duty, but Moussa Sissoko is still missing (hamstring).
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool overcame a howler from summer signing Alisson to make it four wins in a row following a 2-1 triumph over Leicester at King Power Stadium.
Mohamed Salah missed an early chance before Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino netted before the break to put Jurgen Klopp’s side in control.
Alisson gifted the Foxes a goal when, after dithering on Virgil van Dijk’s back-pass, he was robbed by Kelechi Iheanacho and Rachid Ghezzal scored.
The Brazil international told ESPN Brasil: “Obviously, I won’t be stupid to make the same mistake. We have to learn from our mistakes.”
With a Champions League home tie with PSG awaiting them three days later, the Reds may be slightly distracted and their perfect start could come to an end.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Liverpool odds, let’s finish off by going for an entertaining 2-2 draw at 11/1.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Wijnaldum, Milner, Henderson, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has been ruled out for a fortnight with a groin strain suffered on England duty.
Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has recovered from a hand injury to take his place among the substitutes. Defender Dejan Lovren is still recovering from a hip injury, but should return in the next month.
