Liverpool vs Tottenham preview, betting odds, team news & prediction

Liverpool can climb back to the top of the Premier League table with a win over Tottenham at Anfield on Saturday evening.

The Merseysiders booked their place in the Champions League final with a thrilling win over Villarreal on Tuesday night. The Spaniards drew the tie level on aggregate at 2-2 thanks to a superb first half performance, but Liverpool staged a stunning second half comeback to win 3-2 and ease into the final 5-2 on aggregate.

Jurgen Klopp now turns his focus back to league matters as the Reds continue their fierce battle with Man City for the title. The Citizens currently hold a one-point lead but Liverpool can climb above their rivals with a win over Tottenham tomorrow.

However, Spurs head into the game in desperate need of points themselves as they’re fighting with Arsenal for that all-important fourth place. The Gunners hold a two-point advantage with just four games left so Spurs need a positive result at Anfield to keep the pressure on their north London rivals.

Betting odds

This is going to be one of the biggest matches of the weekend schedule so we should expect lots of activity in the betting markets with sites such as BankID Casino vying for business with welcome offers and bonuses. Therefore, it’s worth looking around for the best odds and deals.

Currently, Liverpool are the 4/9 favourites to win the game at Anfield. The draw can be backed at odds of 15/4 while you can bet on Tottenham to claim all three points at odds of 11/2.

Mohamed Salah is one of the key goal threats for the hosts and the Egyptian is 16/5 to open the scoring. If we back Salah to score first in a 2-1 Liverpool win, the odds increase to 33/1.

Team news

Liverpool have a fully fit squad to choose from after Roberto Firmino made his comeback from injury in midweek. Klopp could freshen up his starting eleven with the likes of Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson and Luis Diaz pushing for recalls.

Tottenham will continue to be without Sergio Reguilon due to a groin injury while Oliver Skipp is also on the sidelines with his own groin complain.

Antonio Conte will also be without the services of Matt Doherty this weekend with the full-back still nursing a knee injury.

Prediction

Liverpool have a big opportunity to climb to the top of the table and put the pressure on City, and we can’t see them passing it up. Tottenham have been hugely inconsistent this season and Anfield is arguably the toughest place to visit. It should be a well contested game but Liverpool will have too much quality for Spurs in the end. Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham
