Liverpool v Spurs: Match Preview
The highlight of this weekend’s Premier League action has to be the match taking place on Sunday afternoon, when Spurs head to Anfield to face an unrelenting Liverpool side.
As expected, bookmakers offer Liverpool as the favourites to win this clash, and based on their current form, there’s no reason why they won’t beat a struggling Spurs squad.
A win for Liverpool would put them in an extremely strong position ahead of match against Man City in a couple of weeks, however Spurs really need to put some points on the table if they want to continue to hold on to a spot in the top 10 of the Premier League!
Liverpool have a much better track record against Mauricio Pochettino’s side, having lost only once to Spurs in their last 15 matches across all competitions.
The only victory Spurs took from the 15 clashes, was back in October 2017, when they managed to secure an impressive 4-1 home win at White Hart Lane.
Only 4 of the 15 matches ended in draws, with Liverpool winning the other 10, so it’s understandable why bookmakers offer Liverpool as favourites to win and take all 3 points.
In the lead up to Liverpool v Spurs, we've taken a look at both team’s recent performances, and any player injuries that could affect either Klopp or Pochettino’s match preparations.
Liverpool: Team News
Liverpool are having a fantastic season, and even though their 100% record came to an end last weekend when Man Utd held them to a draw, they still sit 6 points clear at the top of the table.
This wasn’t the result they hoped for against a struggling Man Utd side, and Klopp will be determined to bounce back to winning ways against Spurs on Sunday afternoon.
A win would be an ideal result for Klopp, especially as they face Man City in a couple of weeks and they could benefit from putting a few more points between them and their main rivals.
Liverpool look amazing, and given they also have a home advantage, there is no reason why they shouldn't comfortably beat Spurs and add another 3 points to their tally.
Klopp has most of his squad back after a run of injuries, however Clyne is still missing. Luckily Mo Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri are also expected to be back in time for the Spurs match.
If Liverpool deliver the high standard of football we expect, they should easily beat Spurs.
On the other hand, Spurs won 5-0 in the Champions League in midweek, which will have been a massive confidence booster, so they may play well enough to come away with a draw.
Looking at the last 5 fixtures that Liverpool have played in all competitions, they've won 4, drawn 1, and lost 0 scoring a total of 12 goals (2.4 goals per game) and conceding 6 times.

Spurs: Team News
Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side are having a dreadful Premier League season, having only won 3 matches and currently sit in 7th place in the table on just 12 points.
There’s no security here though, as the only thing keeping them this high on the table is goal difference, and there are 5 teams on the same points tally.
If Liverpool v Spurs unfolds as British Bookmakers are predicting, a loss could see Spurs dropout of the top 10 and really put them in a tough position for the rest of the season.
It’s been a massive surprise to see such poor Spurs performances this season.
They’re only holding teams such as Watford to draws and suffering embarrassing defeats to teams like Brighton in their previous fixture, a team they hadn’t lost to since 1983.
On paper Spurs next 4 matches against Everton, Sheffield, West Ham and Bournemouth should give them the opportunity to put a few more points on the board.
Alternatively, if they continue their current poor form, we shouldn’t be surprised if they don’t get the wins they need and a chance of making the top 4 this season fades from their grasp.
Pochettino doesn’t have any major injury worries to deal with, as only Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon and Hugo Lloris are missing, while Christian Eriksen is available for selection.
Spurs' record over their last 5 matches in all competitions is won 2, drawn 1 and lost 2. They've scored less goals than Liverpool have, 10 in total, and also conceded more (12).

Liverpool v Spurs: Stats
Liverpool and Spurs have met each other 173 times over the years with Liverpool currently having the better stats with 83 victories, compared to just 48 wins for Spurs and 42 draws.
There have been 54 fixtures between Liverpool and Spurs in the Premier League era, with Liverpool again having the upper hand with 25 wins compared to just 14 for Spurs.
The last 6 Premier League games involving both of these sides has resulted in 3 wins for Liverpool, 1 victory for Spurs and 2 of the matches ending in draws.
The last Premier League fixture between these two sides occurred on the 31st of March in 2019 when Liverpool secured a 2-1 victory in front of an Anfield crowd of 53,322.
A goal a piece from Roberto Firmino and Lucas Moura looked like making it a draw before a late own goal in the 90th minute by Toby Alderweireld gave the Kop something to celebrate.
The last match where Liverpool played Spurs was actually when they met in the Champions League Final on the 1st of June earlier this year with the game ending in 2-0 to the Reds.
Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead through a penalty in the 2nd minute, before Divock Origi secured the win for the Reds with a goal 3 minutes from time.
The biggest win that Liverpool have ever recorded over Sunday's opponents in a Premier League fixture was the 6-2 victory at Anfield on the 8th of May back in 1993.
Two goals each from club legends Ian Rush and John Barnes as well as a Mark Walters penalty and own goal from Stuart Nethercott did the damage with Teddy Sheringham and Steve Sedgley getting a couple of consolation goals for the away side.
The highest score that Spurs have ever beaten Liverpool by in the Premier League era was the 4-0 win on the 18th of September in 2011 when they met at White Hart Lane Stadium.
Luka Modrić kicked things off scoring a goal in just the 7th minute Jermain Defoe adding another after the break on 66 minutes before a brace from Emmanuel Adebayor in the 68th and 90th minute sealed the win for the home side in front of a crowd of 36,129.
Liverpool v Spurs - 31/03/2019
The Premier League returns after the Euro 2020 Qualifiers and one of the best fixtures to bet on kicks off at 4:30pm on Sunday when Spurs travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.
Spurs travel North to Anfield this weekend, where they take on Liverpool in a crucial fixture that’s set to be the betting highlight of Sunday’s Premier League action.
Bookmakers offer Liverpool as favourites, and while they need a win to ensure that they remain at the top of the table, Spurs also really need a win if they are to hold on to a top 4 spot.
With so much at stake, you’ll find bookmakers offering some brilliant betting offers on how this fixture will unfold, and the impact it will have on the Premier League table.
Liverpool have, by far, the better track record against Spurs, securing a victory in the first meet of the 2018/19 season, when they beat Spurs at Wembley with a 2-1 scoreline.
Although bookmakers offer Liverpool as favourites to win, 4 of the last 7 Premier League clashes have ended in draws, with Liverpool winning twice and Spurs just once.
Liverpool look the much stronger team at the moment, however both sides haven’t performed to the high levels that they showed earlier on in this Premier League season.
In the lead up to Liverpool v Spurs, we've looked at both team’s recent performances, as well as the player injuries/suspensions that could affect either managers match preparations.
It’s tight at the top of the Premier League table, and the outcome of this fixture with Spurs on Sunday could be crucial for Liverpool at this stage of the season.
Jürgen Klopp’s side are currently top of the table on 76 points, but if Man City can beat Fulham on Saturday as most expect them to, they would be pushed into 2nd place.
Liverpool really can’t risk suffering a loss to Spurs if they are to keep their title dreams alive as they've already played once more game than their title rivals Man City.
Although Liverpool haven’t lost in 10 Premier League matches, they’ve only won 4 of their last 8 fixtures and really need to pick up points if they want to stay ahead of Man City.
In saying that, they've only lost once all season and so if they can beat Spurs on Sunday and then Southampton before they meet Chelsea, they'll be in a much stronger position.
Klopp has had to deal with quite a few missing and injured players lately, but luckily most are due back in time for the Spurs match. Shaqiri, Henderson, Alexander-Arnold and Keita are all expected to be fit; however Gomez and Oxlade-Chamberlain could be missing.
After a strong run, Spurs' form has dipped of late and Pochettino’s side haven’t won any of their last 4 Premier League matches, struggling with 3 loses while only holding Arsenal to a draw.
A number of missing players contributed to this, however suffering defeats to Southampton and Burnley, who are just sitting clear of relegation, just hasn't been good enough.
Especially for a team that was expected to provide some form of title challenge just a month ago.
There's a lot riding on the match for Spurs, and if they can somehow come away from Anfield with a win, they'll then, in theory, face less challenging teams in Crystal Palace and Huddersfield before meeting Man City next month.
A victory would give them a much needed boost and keep them ahead of Arsenal, Man Utd and Chelsea in the Premier League table who are all within 4 points of each other.
Unfortunately Spurs have struggled with a number of injuries, but it looks as if they are nearly all back with only Aurier and Dier ruled out, while Winks is expected to be back in the squad.
Spurs are more than capable of beating Liverpool on their day, but they'll really need to improve on their recent form if they're to get an away victory versus the current league leaders.
