Tottenham v Liverpool Betting Tips

Tottenham finally ended their miserable Wembley run with a tepid 1-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend, but the challenge of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is a different prospect entirely.

Liverpool will continue to be without Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne who remain sidelined with thigh and back injuries, while Adam Bogdan is out for the long term with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Their big team news is that Sadio Mane will continue to miss out following a muscle injury sustained during the international break.

Spurs will miss Victor Wanyama once more with a knee injury, while long-term absentee Erik Lamela is still absent – he is expected to return in November. Mousa Dembele faces a late fitness test on an ongoing ankle injury, while left back Ben Davies is a possible doubt with an illness.

Tottenham’s domestic home record and Liverpool’s away league record right now are identical, with a total of one win, two draws and one loss. The hosts have seen both teams score in 50% of their Wembley league matches so far, while the Reds have seen both teams to score land in three of their four road matches.

Klopp’s side are averaging over three goals per game in the league and arrive on the back of a crushing 7-0 win at bookies outsiders Maribor midweek. Including that one against the Slovenian minnows, only three of their 14 matches in all competitions would have seen both teams to score fail to land and we can see it coming in again here.

Even without Sadio Mane, the away side’s gung-ho playing style should see a game with plenty of chances for both sides, while Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen provide a strong attack-minded core for the home side. Back both teams to score 8/13 with Betfair.

Liverpool’s top scorer for the season is summer signing Mohamed Salah, who has eight goals already in all competitions and four in the Premier League. The Egyptian international scored twice at Maribor midweek, taking his tally on the road up to four goals in six matches.

With two goals in four Premier League away games, including a frustrating appearance in their 5-0 loss at Manchester City, Salah has been instrumental in Liverpool’s early results. Back Mohamed Salah to score anytime at 28/11 with 888sport.

Liverpool’s record against the Big 6 sides in the Premier League under Klopp stands at nine wins, 10 draws and two losses, including four wins, four draws and one loss on their travels. Without several key players and a slight deficiency in creativity, three points may be a step too far for the Reds. With a horrific Wembley record still hanging over Pochettino’s side, the draw looks of a good value, however. Back the draw at 28/11 with 888sport.

Both teams to score 8/13
