2017-18 EPL: Tottenham vs Liverpool Betting Tips

October 22, 2017 by Posted in Soccer Tips

The title credentials of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will be on display when the two Premier League powerhouses clash this weekend. This crucial encounter would be played on Sunday, October 22nd at Wembley and promises to be a thrilling contest.

Season so far
Tottenham started the season as one of the title contenders, but their poor home form pegged them back. They currently have 17 points from eight games and are third in the table, eight points behind Manchester City. A win on the night would keep them in striking distance of the leaders behind by five points.

Liverpool’s season has been up and down all through that currently sees them eighth on the table with 13 points from eight games. Although they lost just one match so far, it is their long list of draws that keeps pulling them down the table. A win on the night would be a huge boost to their title credentials and something which they desperately need.

Clash of two top class managers
It is not just a clash for underlining their title ambitions but also a clash of the attacking personalities of the two managers. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has already established his credentials by turning the Spurs into genuine title challengers while Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has a lot to prove by turning impressive performances into title-winning performances for the Anfield side.

Pochettino will be wary of his side’s faltering fortunes at their temporary home Wembley. Though they won 1-0 against Bournemouth last weekend, they have already lost to Chelsea and dropped points against Burnley and Swansea City. He will be desperate to turn the fortunes around and break the ‘Wembley curse’.

For Klopp and Liverpool, it is a test of their ability to get back into the title mix. Currently struggling to break stubborn teams, Klopp will hope that his side can be more effective in the final third against better organized sides.

Key Stats and Battles
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last six meetings with Tottenham having won three and drawn the other three encounters. They haven’t lost to Spurs since 2013 but the last two meetings away from home have been draws for the Reds.

The market is leaning in favor of the hosts despite their poor Wembley record. Odds of 2.20 (William Hill) make them favorites while a draw at odds of 3.6 (bet365) is equally lucrative. Back the game to be a stalemate.

Tottenham’s four League matches at home have seen just six goals. Both sides could struggle for goals on Sunday and we expect under 2.5 goals in this match at odds of 2.25 (Ladbrokes).

TIP: Under 2.5 goals – $2.25 at Ladbrokes

Coming to individual goal scorers, the form of Philippe Coutinho makes us back him to find the net anytime in the match at odds of 3.5 (bet365)
