Prediction and odds for the game: Liverpool (2/5) vs Tottenham (6/1)
We are backing the Draw/Liverpool at odds of 10/3
When: Saturday 7 May 2022, Kick-off 20:45
On Saturday night, Liverpool has the chance to edge back above title rivals Manchester City, at least temporarily as Jurgen Klopp’s team welcomes Tottenham to Anfield.
The Reds fresh from booking their place in the Champions League final at the end of May head into this clash in good spirits. A 5-3 aggregate victory over the Spanish side Villarreal sealed by a comeback 3-2 win at La Ceramica showed Liverpool’s resilience.
The men from Merseyside now return to their chase of the Premier League title, as they currently sit just a point behind reigning champions and league leaders Manchester City. Even a point from this clash would be enough to send the Reds back to the top of the table, at least until City play on Sunday against Newcastle anyway.
The win in Spain means that Liverpool has now won their last six games in all competitions. Klopp’s team has also scored at least two goals in nine of their last ten competitive outings.
Liverpool has now won their last 17 home matches at Anfield in the Premier League. They are also 21 home games unbeaten in the English top-flight.
While Liverpool battles for the Premier League title, Tottenham’s main aim remains qualifying for next season’s Champions League. Spurs are currently in fifth place in the table and two points adrift of arch-rivals Arsenal, who occupy the last Champions League berth for next season.
Antonio Conte’s team got back to winning ways last time out by hammering Leicester 3-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The win came on the back of picking up just a point from matches against Brighton and Brentford.
Despite the two underwhelming results, Tottenham has still won five of their last seven matches in the Premier League. The team from north London has also been prolific in front of goal in those victories, scoring at least two goals in each of the five victories.
Tottenham have been slightly inconsistent on their travels of late in the English top-flight. However, they have won three of their last five away matches in the league while keeping three straight clean sheets on their travels in the Premier League. That recent stellar defensive record on their travels will face a stern test against the league’s top goalscorers.
With Liverpool having such good momentum, it is hard to see anything other than a home win. However, as always a home win offers no value when we talk about Liverpool.
The draw/Liverpool interests us, as Tottenham boss Conte is famous for his ability to manage to pull off big results by playing pragmatic football, which is what they are likely to do at Anfield. Liverpool are likely to break through at some point, so the draw/Liverpool seems a promising bet.
The other bet that may offer a bit of value is under 2.5 goals scored, which is for the same reason we are backing draw/Liverpool.
Our Tips: We are backing draw/Liverpool at odds of 10/3 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 6/4. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
