Spurs vs Liverpool match preview

Spurs are unbeaten in 4 and have won 2 of those games. Spurs have scored 8 goals in their last 4 games and have conceded at least 1 goal in 6 of their last 7 games. Liverpool are winless in 5 games and have lost 2 of those 5. Liverpool will be very disappointed with their current form, a goalless draw with Man United may not be the worst result but draws with Newcastle and West Brom and losses to Southampton and Burnley will frustrate Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool have now failed to score in their last 4 Premier League games, in fact the last 4 Liverpool games have seen just 2 goals, and they were the goals for Southampton and Burnley in 1 nil wins over the reigning Premier League champions.

Liverpool have had 49 corners in their last 5 games, and they have given away just 12 corners in that time. Liverpool have received 10 yellow cards in their last 4 games, a sign perhaps at frustration growing in the players on the field. Spurs have given away 5 or more corners in 9 of their last 12 games, when you combine this with Liverpool’s high corner count and you would expect Liverpool to be taking at least 5 corners in the game tonight. Spurs opponents have been given 13 yellow cards in their last 5 games. Its no secret that Jose Mourinho’s side are street wise and will play the part to try and get the referee to caution the Liverpool players. Wesaw it happen at Old Trafford at the start of the season where Anthony Martial took the bait and was red carded, and add this to the fact that Tottenham’s opponents average over 2 yellow cards a game and it would be no surprise to see Liverpool end up with a couple of players in the book. The head to head meeting earlier this season resulted in a 2-1 win for Liverpool, with 7 Liverpool corners and 4 Spurs corners and just 2 Spurs Yellows.

Whilst this looks a great game to watch on paper, it is a somewhat tricky puzzle to work out from a betting point of view. Liverpool are terribly out of form in front of goal for their standards, and a trip to take on Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side who are likely to sit deep, be tough to break down and play on the counter attack is far from ideal. It is tough to back against there being goals in this game due to the attacking talent on show, though Liverpool’s goal scoring form and the fact they will likely dominate possession and territory is slightly off putting. The real questions from a corners point of view is will spurs contribute? As they had 4 when these sides last met, but the way they play in fixtures like this can results in them having no corners, as was the case when they played Man City recently and they did not have a single corner. The game looks likely to produce a couple of cards at least. Liverpool’s recent poor form has led to them receiving more cards than normal, and the fact Spurs will look to counter attack could lead to cards for professional fouls.

We feel the best strategy for this game may be to back a couple of bigger odds bets mainly based around cards. With doubts about the result, goals and corners. We feel the best strategy may be to wait until the starting line ups are announced and look for some value in the player to be carded market. That is what we will be doing, so check back on site later for our bets for this one.
