Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals & Fabinho to be Carded
The game of the midweek slate has been saved for Thursday night as Spurs hope to amplify the worrying form of Champions Liverpool. It doesn’t seem two minutes since the Reds were odds-on favourites to win back-to-back titles but with no win in five, they’ve drifted right out to 9/1 to finish top of the tree.
Spurs are likely to invite Liverpool on and try and benefit from counter-attack situations. Defensively they’ll probably force their opponents out wide and accept balls into the box with no obvious aerial threat. We saw Burnley swat away cross after cross last week, this is where Liverpool may have been found out slightly. Their lack of a plan B against teams that are happy to allow the ball come into dangerous areas from out wide has shown up their lack of a diminutive link man between the lines, the last type they had was probably Phillipe Coutinho.
Seeing Liverpool hovering around even-money makes zero appeal in their current guise. Klopp has talked about focusing chiefly on being solid defensively again and trying to nick a win, possibly looking to play Mourinho at his own game. With that in mind, a low scoring encounter looks highly possible and 23/20 about under 2.5 goals looks too big.
One player who is vulnerable to a card against teams who look to play on the break is Fabinho. The versatile Brazilian has collected 3 cards in his last 4 and with the likes of Heung Min-Son looking to use his pace to get at the visitors defence he could be in line for another here.
