2016-17 EPL Betting Tips

The 2016-17 English Premier League (EPL) season moves into a new gear as top-four hopefuls Tottenham and Liverpool clash at the White Hart Lane on Saturday, August 27.

Tottenham Hotspurs stretched Leicester City in the title race last season. Although they finished third, Spurs were in the title hunt for most wins of the season. They have high hopes of challenging for the title this year and have started the season in the right way. Spurs are unbeaten after two games and would be eager to maintain that momentum.

Mauricio Pochettino benched Dele Alli for the last game and chose to start Harry Kane in number 10 position. It is highly likely that they revert to their normal formation against Liverpool with Alli slotting back in his favorite role. Watch out for the Argentine Eric Lamela who has started the season at the top of his form.

This is Jurgen Klopp’s first full season at the Anfield and there are high expectations that Liverpool will be challenging for the title once again. But on the evidence of what we saw in the two matches so far in the season, the maladies of the team are still plaguing them. Left-back remains a worry as does the forward position.

Injuries to Divock Origi and Emre Can in the midweek is a concern for Liverpool but the return to fitness of Sadio Mane is a happy sign. Alberto Moreno has already had a horror start to the season but could slot back in playing the midweek game from the bench.

Tottenham are yet to hit their stride as was evident in the two games played so far. Liverpool on the other hand witnessed emotions at both ends of the spectrum – a scintillating win against Arsenal followed by a demoralizing loss to Burnley. Problems at left back indicate that there are goals for Spurs in this game.
Both these sides played out draws in the last season which looks a distinct possibility again in this encounter.
