Liverpool – Tottenham
The current leader in the Premier League Liverpool will have a tough test on Sunday, because the Reds will face Tottenham Hotspur at the Anfield. This will the first time these two teams meet since their Champions League final in Madrid in May, which was won by Liverpool. Let’s discuss this clash in our English Premier League predictions for today.
Liverpool were enjoying a great run of 8 consecutive wins in the league, but last weekend they lost points for a first time. Jurgen Klopp’s team visited Manchester United at the Old Trafford and game ended with a 1-1 draw. The European champions were actually pretty close to losing this game, but the substitute Adam Lallana managed to equalise just five minutes before the end.
Of course, it’s a completely normal thing for every team to lose points here and there. Because of their amazing run since the start of the season, right now Liverpool are 6 points ahead of the champion Manchester City. This lead could be a good foundation for them to win the title for a first time since the 90’s.
Few days ago Liverpool showed their amazing firepower again. The Reds visited Genk in the Champions League and scored four goals against the Belgians. Jurgen Klopp said that he’s happy with the result, but not with the performance of his players.
Tottenham Hotspur didn’t start the new season in the Premier League in the best way possible. At this moment Spurs are 7th in the league standings with 12 points, being 5 points behind the 4th Chelsea. They have won just 3 of their 9 games so far, which is absolutely not good enough for a club with ambitions that big. Tottenham have won just one point in their last two matches in the Premier League.
Just like Liverpool, Spurs enjoyed a very successful Champions League night few days ago, crushing the visiting Crvena Zvezda with 5-0 at home.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the derby match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. Good luck, guys!
