On Saturday, the Premier League will witness a thrilling clash between the two giants in the league. Tottenham will be hosting Liverpool on Saturday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
After being in the headlines for all the wrong reasons in the last season, Tottenham started the new season on a positive note. They are currently in the 4th spot with four wins. James Maddison and Son have been in exceptional form this season. Maddison has two assists and two goals this season, meanwhile, Son has 3 goals to his name.
Liverpool is currently in the 2nd spot in the Premier League point table with five wins. It is a period of revival for the Reds and they will be looking forward to gaining some away points on Sunday. Mohamed Salah is making headlines with three goals and four assists already this season. The shining light for Liverpool has been the form of Darwin Nunez after his struggle last season. The forward has 3 goals and two assists to his name
Both teams have scored 15 goals each in 6 matches so far and this can continue keeping the attacking depth of both teams in mind.
The betting tip is...
Total goals above 2.5
The draw against Arsenal will definitely be a big boost to Ange Postecoglou and his boys. The north-London derby ended as a 2-2 draw with Son Heung-Min playing a major role in the draw. He scored twice in the 42nd and 55th minutes of the game. With a possession of 54% in the last game, Tottenham will be now looking forward to how to handle the attack of the Reds. Team Management will be overall happy with the start and form of their two key players in Son and Maddison.
Bentancur, Sessegnon, Gil, Lo Celso and Whiteman are sidelined because of their knee injury.
Predicted Lineup: Vicario (GK), Romero, Porro, van de Ven, Udogie, Maddison, Bissouma, Kulusevski, Sarr, Son & Richarlison
The Reds are definitely at the top of their game but Jurgen Klopp will be aware of the weak defence in the team. The visitors have just won one clean sheet in 6 Premier League fixtures as of now and it is a shock for the team management. Liverpool hosted West Ham in the previous fixture and scored a win by 3-1 with a possession of 64%.
Mohammed Salah converted a penalty in the 16th minute with Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota scoring goals in the 60th and 85th minute of the game.
Thiago Alcantara is out of action because of his injury and won’t be part of the team on Sunday.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson (GK), Matip, Robertson, Gomez, van Dijk, Jones, Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Salah, Jota & Gakpo
Both teams are in positive form but both have their respective struggles with injuries this season. Liverpool are struggling with injuries to Thiago Alcântara and Alexander Arnold. Meanwhile, Tottenham looks solid in attack but the defence looks weak and will have to be on top of their against the Reds.
In their last 5 meetings, Tottenham have failed to score a single win and Ange will be hoping that his men turn this around keeping the current form in mind. We predict a goal-fest as both teams love to attack but are vulnerable in defence.
