After an FA cup break, we’re back with another Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net. As always, our team of dedicated experts are on hand to deliver our top Premier League tips, predictions and betting info for the upcoming fixtures this weekend.
For our Premier League predictions today, we’re focussing on the blockbuster clash of the week in North London, where Tottenham host faltering Champions Liverpool on Thursday evening. Can Jose topple the Reds this time around? Our Premier League tips, betting info and predictions follow below.
Spurs, along with Liverpool, were among the sides who hit a rough patch over the festive period, and they still sit just outside the top four, albeit with a game in hand. Despite this, however, they have gone on a seven game unbeaten run post Christmas, and have yet to lose a game in 2021. This has restored their status as potential title contenders among some Premier League predictions experts. Mourinho might have an issue at right back as Serge Aurier is a potential doubt, as is his usual stand-in Matt Doherty.
After getting knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, The Reds now only have one win in their last seven games, with that win being an FA Cup tie against Aston Villa’s youth team. Additionally, the Reds lost their Anfield undefeated league record against Burnley last week. Times are tough on Merseysid, however there were promising signs in the loss to Manchester United. The Reds were impressive going forward, with Firmino and Mo Salah both looking sharp, but the missing pieces to the defensive puzzle remain an obvious issue for Klopp.
Liverpool’s recent form might not bode well for their Premier League predictions, but their head to head record in this fixture makes for good reading on Merseyside. The Reds have won their last six games against Spurs, having only lost against the North London outfit once since Klopp took charge. In fact, Spurs only have one competitive win over Liverpool since 2013. Klopp’s head to head record against Mounrinhno is also pretty good – the charismatic German has a 6-2 record against the Portguese coach, with the two men having shared the spoils on four occasions.
Below, we’ve provided the result of the last five matches between Tottenham and Liverpool as well as three statistical highlights. We’ve used all of this information and more in order to bring you our Premier League prediction weekend.
Having analysed the above information our Premier League predictions today point to draw on Thursday night in North London
On paper, Spurs are currently the in form team, however they haven’t met a top side in their recent run, with their last defeat being a 2-0 home loss to Leicester. Had this fixture taken place one week earlier, we might’ve tipped Tottenham to edge it, but there was enough evidence in Liverpool’s loss to Manchester United to suggest that their attack is looking sharp enough to cause Spurs problems. A draw would be enough to see Spurs leapfrog Liverpool in the league on goal difference and with a game in hand. When you combine that with the fact Mourinho won’t want a repeat of the Anfield loss, we can likely expect some signature Mourinho pragmatism. The likely conclusion will be stalemate, which you can back with Bet365 at odds of 3.4. A draw is the result that’s best for both parties.
