Liverpool v Tottenham Betting Tips
A few weeks ago, this could have been a potential title deciding match but after an awful run by Spurs, Liverpool are definite favourites. Whilst Liverpool and Manchester City have been title favourites since the season began, Tottenham had slowly been creeping up on them and found themselves within 3 points of City. 3 losses from 4 games and the continuing impressive form of the top 2 has pushed Spurs back and they will now be looking over their shoulders. Liverpool are top of the league as it stands, but City have a game in hand. Liverpool would rather have points on the board however and will be looking for another 3 this week. Bet UK’s online sportsbook has the latest football betting odds for Liverpool v Spurs this weekend, along with all other Premier League matches.
Liverpool’s Premier League Form
Last Time Out In The League
A James Milner penalty gave Liverpool a deserved 3 points at Craven Cottage, despite a late comeback from the Cottagers. Sadio Mane continued his incredible goalscoring form in the 26th minute. Smart work from Mane sent Firmino to the byline, before he returned the favour and set Mane up from 6 yards. Both sides had chances either side of half-time, before an uncharacteristic mistake from Virgil van Dijk handed Fulham a goal. Van Dijk tried to head back to Allisson but didn't get enough power behind his header, gifting Ryan Babel an open goal to finish into. Just 6 minutes later however, Fulham keeper Sergio Rico needlessly fouled Mane in the box and the referee rightfully awarded a penalty. James Milner stepped up, slammed his penalty down the middle and celebrated in front of the travelling fans to send Liverpool back to the top of the table. They are top of the league with 76 points, but City have a game in hand on 74 points.
Tottenham’s Premier League Form
Last Time Out In The League
As we mentioned in our intro, Spurs were genuine title contenders prior to their awful recent Premier League form. That continued with a 2-1 loss to relegation threatened Southampton at St Mary’s despite taking an early lead. Harry Kane continued his fine goalscoring record with a goal early on, after already having a handful of chances. It took 26 minutes for Kane to score, but Tottenham easily could have been 3-0 up by that point. Instead, wasted chances proved costly as Spurs collapsed late on. With just over 10 minutes to go, youngster Yan Valery added to his Old Trafford goal with a scooped finish over Hugo Lloris. In another repeat of Southampton’s match at Old Trafford, it was James Ward Prowse who stepped up for a free kick late on. For the second time in as many matches the England international curled an effort into the top corner. The win helped Southampton in their survival bid, but put a serious dent in any hope Spurs had of a first Premier League title. Spurs are still in 3rd, but just 4 points separates them from 6th.
Where’s the Value Bet?
Sadio Mane is one of the most in form players in the league and has taken up the mantle during Mo Salah’s poor run. In his last 11 matches for Liverpool, Sadio Mane has scored 11 goals to keep Liverpool well in the title race and in the Champions League. In that same period, Salah and Firmino have only scored 6 between them. Whilst one side’s reliance on a goalscorer might normally be detrimental, Mane has well and truly stepped up to the plate. Of his 11 goals, 7 have came at home so it’s clear he prefers playing at Anfield. Against Spurs, we expect him to add to this tally.
