Liverpool vs Tottenham Match Preview
Tottenham Hotspur threw the race to top four in the Premier League (PL) wide open with a comfortable win over Manchester United. That left very little between the sides from second to fifth on the PL table which sets the context for this Liverpool vs Tottenham game nicely, so check out our Liverpool vs Tottenham prediction and betting tips.
Liverpool had a week to forget as they were first shocked at Swansea in the PL and then got dumped out of the FA Cup at the hands of West Bromwich Albion. That could have been catastrophic for the Reds in a tight race to the top four, but with others around them dropping points, they are still in charge of their destiny. After 25 games, Liverpool are third in the PL table (50 pts, W14, D8, L3). They are just three points behind Manchester United (second in the table) and two points ahead of Tottenham (fifth in the table). Another win in this Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur encounter will consolidate their position in top four. What should help Jurgen Klopp is the fact that they are out of both domestic cups, which should give them time and energy to focus on PL campaign.
Tottenham, though, wouldn’t be easy fish after their performance against Manchester United. That win was crucial for Mauricio Pochettino men to stay afloat in the top-four race. They are currently fifth in the PL table after 25 games (48 pts, P14, D6, L5). The positive news for the visitors ahead of this Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur fixture is that they are just two points adrift of the fourth-placed Chelsea. Their recent form in the PL is commendable too, as they lost only once in their last 11 fixtures (W7, D3, L1). However, they have alternated wins and draws in the last four matches – the win against United being the most recent. Can they break that trend and win two consecutive matches for the first time since January 2?

Liverpool vs Tottenham Prediction
Considering the goal-scoring form that the forwards on both these sides are in, it is easy to see why we are rooting for both the sides to score goals. The presence of Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane is tempting enough to back them for scoring a goal anytime of the match. Liverpool are strong at home and defeating them is tough – something which even Manchester City couldn’t achieve. We expect a home win.
