Tottenham have lost their last six meetings with Liverpool but have a great chance to end that hoodoo on Thursday night on current form.
The Reds are reeling on the ropes after going five Premier League fixtures without a win and crashing out of the FA Cup at Manchester United on Sunday.
Spurs are playing well enough to make 21/10 for a home win hard to resist as our first Tottenham vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham missed several opportunities to edge out Liverpool at Anfield last month before being caught with a stoppage-time sucker-punch by Roberto Firmino to go down 2-1.
After Son Heung-min had cancelled out Mohamed Salah’s opener, Steven Bergwijn hit the post when clean through and Harry Kane headed over from close range.
Since the turn of the year, Spurs have registered five wins and a draw from six outings in all competitions.
Jose Mourinho’s men reached the final of the EFL Cup by beating Brentford 2-0 here and scored nine goals in FA Cup triumphs away to Marine and Wycombe.
There was a frustrating league draw with Fulham at this venue, but either side of that setback they hammered Leeds 3-0 in London and prevailed 3-1 at Sheffield United.
The usual suspects have propelled Spurs to success, with Kane and Son grabbing a dozen league goals apiece to lie joint-second in the Golden Boot table.
Tanguy Ndombele is also starting to justify his £53.8million price tag, netting three goals in the last two games.
“He is very creative,” Mourinho said of the 24-year-old France international. “He is one of those players that can break the balance.”
Spurs are playing the kind of football which makes 17/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game appeal from the Tottenham vs Liverpool odds.
Last Tottenham EPL line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Rodon, Aurier, Davies, Hojbjerg, Dier, Ndombele, Son, Kane, Bergwijn.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool went top of the table when edging out Spurs on Merseyside five weeks ago and followed up with a sensational 7-0 romp at Crystal Palace.
However, the Reds have suffered an alarming dip in form since Christmas, which began with dropping two points at home to West Brom.
Jurgen Klopp’s side then failed to score in four straight league fixtures, drawing 0-0 against Newcastle and Manchester United and losing 1-0 to Southampton and Burnley.
Those results have seen them slip down to fourth, just a point above Tottenham, who have a game in hand.
There was some relief on the attacking front in seeing Salah hit a double at Old Trafford in the cup over the weekend.
However, this time it was Liverpool’s defensive woes which came to the fore in a 3-2 defeat.
Having enjoyed so much success in recent years, the champions are in the unusual position of struggling for coherence and results.
James Milner told Sony India: “I think when you’ve been on the run we have in the last few years, winning game after game – at times maybe when we didn’t deserve to win – and things are going your way, everything is easy.
“And obviously when results aren’t going your way, things that went your way before don’t seem to.
“That’s what we have to keep pushing, keep working hard, reacting the right way to disappointments.”
We’re hoping the poor run continues for at least one more match, though, and 10/1 for Spurs to prevail 2-1 completes our Tottenham vs Liverpool betting tips.
Last Liverpool EPL line-up: Alisson, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Thiago, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Shaqiri, Mane, Origi.
Wycombe 1-4 TOTTENHAM – Gareth Bale, Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele (2)
Man Utd 3-2 LIVERPOOL – Mohamed Salah (2)
Head-to-head: Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham, Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool, Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham, Tottenham 0-2 Liverpool, Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham
