class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Having hit the net in several high-profile matches already this season, Al Hain-Cole thinks the South Korean star offers strong value against the Reds
After four Premier League games without a goal, Liverpool are in desperate need of inspiration when they travel to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday.
Having scored twice in Sunday’s FA Cup defeat to Manchester United, Mohamed Salah looks the Reds’ best bet to open the scoring at 3/1 (4.00) with bet365.
The Egypt international has actually struck six times in nine previous matches against Spurs – finding the net in three of the most recent four – so it is unsurprising that he is the 5/6 (1.83) anytime favourite at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
In contrast, Sadio Mane does not inspire much confidence at 13/10 (2.30) after scoring just twice in his last 14 appearances in the league.
Similarly, Roberto Firmino’s return of five goals in 28 fixtures all season is unlikely to attract much interest in his 15/8 (2.88) anytime price despite his late winner in December’s reverse encounter at Anfield.
For Spurs, Jose Mourinho is able to call upon a number of attacking players enjoying a rich vein of form, with Harry Kane the pick of the bunch.
On target in each of his last three league games to make it 19 for the season in all competitions, the club captain looks a strong first goalscorer bet at 10/3 (4.33) – not to mention 10/11 (1.91) anytime.
However, Son Heung-Min looks an even better bet at 15/8 (2.88) anytime considering he has matched Kane’s 12 league goals so far this campaign.
What’s more, the South Korea star grabbed his side’s goal in the trip to Anfield and is always a major asset in such fixtures, underlined by strikes against Manchester City, Arsenal and two versus Manchester United already this campaign.
Having endured a slow start to life in England, Tanguy Ndombele is starting to justify the club record fee Tottenham paid to bring the Lyon midfielder to North London – hitting the back of the net three times in his last six appearances.
With this in mind, he could offer strong value at long 7/1 (8.00) odds to fire past a struggling Liverpool team in Thursday’s big match.
