Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool Tips:

Betting Tip: Over 2.5 goals & both teams to score

It’s been a week of comebacks for Antonio Conte’s side as last weekend they battled from 2-0 down to secure a 3-2 victory away to league strugglers Boournemouth on the south coast.

Then they were in Champions League action and despite conceding the opening goal, they scored two second half goals away to Marseille, which included a 95th minute winner that ensured they qualified for the knockout stages as group winners.

They’re presented with another tough task here as they welcome a Liverpool side that they haven’t beaten in any of their nine previous Premier League meetings with.

Astonishingly, the Reds have failed to claim three points away from Anfield this season and it’s uncharacteristically been due to the fact they can't keep clean sheets regularly, having done so just once in their five such matches.

The hosts put everything into that performance against Marseille during the week with many of their stars playing the majority of the match, but they’ll still cause problems for this Liverpool back line. On the flip side, Liverpool enjoy playing against Spurs and are due an away win.

I think this could be an entertaining clash with goals for both sides and will go with both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.

Betting Tip: Harry Kane to be carded

This will be Tottenham Hotspur's penultimate mate prior to leaving for the World Cup and the Spurs forward Harry Kane is just one card away from serving a suspension.

This match will be full of intensity and in front of a packed home crowd it should be some spectacle. Kane is the go to man for goals but the remarkable thing about him that doesn’t get mentioned too often is his contribution to the defensive side of the game.

He is more than happy to get stuck in and fly into a challenge but that can sometimes get him into trouble. He’s going to have to close down Liverpool’s defensive line and he looks a great price to pick up a card.

Should he be booked, he will miss Spurs’ home match against Leeds United but will be available immediately when the Premier League restarts after the World Cup concludes. Based on the price alone I want to be involved given how I expect this game to play out, but throw in the fact that a suspension next week would be well-timed before flying to Qatar, it makes even more appeal.

I’ll have a point on this at 11/2.
