Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool Preview

Saturday’s Premier League action kicks off at Wembley where Tottenham Hotspur take on Liverpool.

Spurs’ winning start to the campaign was ended at Vicarage Road last time out with Watford coming from a goal down to secure victory, and in doing so maintain their own perfect record this term.

Victory for Mauricio Pochettino’s side here would move them level on points with their table-topping opponents while a win of two goals or more will see them, if only temporarily take first place.

Dele Alli will miss the game after picking up a hamstring injury whilst on England duty while Michel Vorm is likely to keep his spot in goal with captain Hugo Lloris still struggling with a thigh problem.

The hosts will however be boosted by the return of Son Heung-min, who is available after helping South Korea win the Asian Games.

Harry Kane is favourite to open the scoring at 5.0 (4/1) with Unibet, while Lucas Moura is a 9.5 (17/2) chance with the same firm.

Unibet have the home win at 3.02 (83/41) and the draw at 3.72 (49/18) with the visitors favourites at a widely available price of 2.4 (7/5).

Jurgen Klopp’s side made it four wins from four at Leicester City last time out and another victory here will tighten their grip at the top.

Adam Lallana is a doubt after a groin strain ruled him out of England’s recent double header while reserve goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has recovered from a hand injury.

Mo Salah is 5.2 (21/5) to get the first goal of the game ahead of Sadio Mane, who is a 7.5 (13/2) shot with most firms.

Spurs ran out 4-1 winners in last season’s corresponding fixture eleven months ago, while the sides played out a 2-2 draw at Anfield four months later.

You can bet on their being four or more goals this time around at 2.7 (17/10) with Unibet while some bookmakers offer 1.57 (4/7) for both teams to score in the game, as has been the case in five of the last six meetings between the pair.
