Tottenham vs Liverpool (Premier League Prediction, 31.08.2014)

Liverpool and Tottenham are both with hopes for the fourth place in the Premier League table, only that the bookmakers see the Reds in the top five rather than this week’s opponents. Tottenham are currently on the first place in the Premier League table, with a better goal difference than Chelsea, after the 1-0 win against West Ham and the 4-0 win against QPR.

Eric Dier is also among the best goalscorers, being paired up with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa. This time around Tottenham will try to avoid the embarrassment from the last season when they lost with 9-0 on aggregate, but provided Federico Fazio is cleared to play Tottenham will have a renewed backline. Michael Dawson transferred to Hull City, and rumour has it the new captain might end up being Hugo Lloris. Last night Tottenahm qualified for the Europa League group stage after a 5-1 on aggregate against AEL Limassol, and will come in good spirits for the match against Liverpool. Walker and Chriches might miss the match due to injuries.
Liverpool lost against Man City, but with the news of their shock signing of Mario Balotelli, nobody dwelled too much on the fact itself, and are now looking forward to the start of Mario making use of his shirt with the number 45. Brendan Rodgers stated that: “I think by the weekend he’ll be ready. He has been into pre-season and played three 45-minute games. He may not be up to full match speed but he’s looking fit.” Against City, Liverpool looked good, but lacked the precision in front of the goal now with Suarez gone. Liverpool have injury worries of their own as Flanagan, Lallana and Agger are still out of the squad.

That being said, not even the bookies have a clear favorite to win, with Ladbrokes giving Tottenham 2.62 odds to win and Liverpool 2.70. Both teams to score at 1.55, and one of the most popular betting markets is Emmanuel Adebayor to score and Tottenham to win at 4.80, while for Liverpool Daniel Sturridge to score and Liverpool to win at 5.50. We are going to bet 7 units on over 3.5 goals in the match at 2.50 with Ladbrokes.
