Tottenham vs Liverpool Preview
Having moved top of the league with a home win over this opposition before thrashing Crystal Palace three days later to secure first place at Christmas, the Reds have effectively imploded since then.
Without a win in five league matches, they have also scored just once in that period and failed to find the net in any of the most recent four games.
With seven clean sheets to their name in the last 10 matches in their own backyard, Jose Mourinho’s men will certainly back themselves to cause more frustration for such out-of-sorts visitors.
However, they are unlikely to open themselves up too much despite their superior form, instead sticking to the type of counter-attacking game plan that has seen them beat Manchester City 2-0, Arsenal 2-0 and draw 0-0 away to Chelsea this campaign.
Tottenham vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
With this in mind, odds of 11/10 (2.10) seem generous on under 2.5 goals being scored for Liverpool’s sixth consecutive league game, as well as a fifth in six on home turf for Tottenham.
