Key Stats

  • Liverpool have won four of their last seven league meetings with Tottenham, losing just once during that period. The visitors head into this weekend's match on the back of three straight league defeats and look void of all confidence right now.
  • The hosts have scored at least two goals in two of their last three league games and Tottenham have only failed to score in two of their last six outings which is why we've gone with a 2-1 scoreline in favour of Liverpool.
  • Both teams have scored and over 2.5 goals have been produced in six of the last seven encounters between these two clubs, while three of Liverpool's last six outings have witnessed at least three goals and four of Tottenham's last six have ended with both teams scoring.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Liverpool the clear favourite

  • HOME: 1/2 (1.50) – 66.7%
  • DRAW: 19/4 (5.75) – 17.4%
  • AWAY: 5/1 (6.00) – 16.7%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Liverpool are the expected winner of this game with a win probability of 66.7%, but both teams have been in disappointing form of late.

The Reds could only manage a 2-2 draw at West Ham last time out and as a result, they are now third in title race, while Tottenham lost 2-0 at Chelsea in midweek to make it three league defeats on the run.

For more football betting tips on the game, check out the Anytime Goalscorer market. Liverpool's Mohamed Salah is the favourite to score in this game at 5/6 (1.83) which has a probability of 54.5%, but if you want to go with a Tottenham Hotspur scorer then Heung-Min Son is priced at 23/10 (3.30) with a probability of 30.3%.

Player to watch – Luis Diaz

Luis Diaz has enjoyed what feels like his first full season with Liverpool, despite joining the club midway through the 2021/22 campaign.

The Colombian winger only managed 17 Premier League appearances for Liverpool last season, scoring four goals, but this time around he has played in 34 games and has found the back of the net on eight occasions.

One of Liverpool's better players during their recent poor run of form

Liverpool haven't been in good form of late but Diaz has put in some solid performances, coming close to scoring twice in the Merseyside derby. However, if the former Porto man is to succeed in the Premier League then he will need to add more goals to his game.
