Spurs and Liverpool have had contrasting Premier League seasons, with Tottenham starting well and Liverpool badly. While in more recent weeks this has flipped on it’s head with Spurs, who were thumped 6-1 by Newcastle last weekend, in freefall – while Liverpool have found their form again with some nice wins.

However, you feel Liverpool’s surge will be too late in their race for a ‘top four’ finish as the Reds sit back with 50 points with Brighton just a point behind them, but having two games in-hand.

Spurs are on 53 points – having played a game more than Liverpool – but both sides are 6 and 9 points off Man Utd in fourth at the start of this weekend’s matches.

The match betting for Sunday’s clash sees Liverpool at 3/5, the draw at 16/5 and Spurs at 17/4.

They faced-off earlier this season in London, with Liverpool winning that 1-2, while this repeat fixture last term ended in a 1-1 draw.

You can back another 1-1 stalemate at 8/1.

Liverpool have also only lost 1 of their last 25 vs Spurs in all competitions and interestingly have won 50% of their last 10 head-to-heads 2-1. This scoreline is on the table at 18/1.

It’s often a clash that sees goals too – 10 of the last 13 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS, as did 9 of the last 12 repeat fixtures. You can back 3+ goals at 4/7.

Both teams also scored in 81% of the last 16 matchups, so this might appeal at 8/13. Plus, Liverpool have only failed to score once in their last 23 vs Spurs.

The scoring markets are dominated by Liverpool’s Mo Salah at 4/1 (1st) or 6/5 (anytime), with Spurs’ Harry Kane on the table at 11/2 (1st) or 7/4 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that if either side loses will put pay to their slim chances of making the top four. Liverpool look the safer call on form and having home advantage and based on the trouble at Spurs at the moment.

However, the both teams to score option at 8/13 looks the safest option in a game were each team are hardly watertight at the back these days.
