Tottenham vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 28 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
It is one of the most anticipated matches in the Premier League this season. It’s Jose Mourinho versus Jurgen Klopp, it’s Harry Kane versus Mohamed Salah, it’s the fourth-placed team versus the fifth-placed team on the table. Expect a load of action in the ninety minutes at London on Thursday night.
Tottenham has been unbeaten for the past four clashes in the league, following a 1-3 win on the road against Sheffield United last time out in PL. They will host on the back of a 1-4 win in their visit to Wycombe in the FA Cup clash in the schedule.
Klopp and his men, on the other hand, are on a winless streak in the PL extending to five games in a row. Besides, Liverpool has lost two matches in a row, including a FA Cup loss to Manchester United last time out in their overall schedule.

Tottenham vs Liverpool Team Report
Dele Alli and Matt Doherty are unlikely to return for Tottenham along with Giovani Lo Celso in their squad for Thursday’s top-of-the-table clash in the Premier League.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez continue to be a major loss for the Reds. Naby Keita, Henderson, and Diogo Jota are other key players that Liverpool will miss in the upcoming clash.
Tottenham vs Liverpool Prediction
Mourinho lost both the fixtures against Liverpool in 2020 as the Spur’s coach. The match at home saw Tottenham conceding a goal against none. Meanwhile, on the road, the match ended with a 2-1 home win for the Reds in their last h2h meeting.
The Spurs have an eight-game unbeaten run across all major competitions in their schedule. Besides, Harry Kane and Son combo has been lethal in recent fixtures. They can take advantage of Liverpool’s dip in form and confused defensive line which broke against Man Utd. Then, there is no doubt that the match will move into an easy win for the home team.
With a lack of depth because of injuries, Klopp will again rely on his front-men Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. But the African duo hasn’t been at their best in the last month for the Reds. This will be a problem for the visitors who can only expect Firmino to step up as he has scored in four of his last five appearances against the Londoners.
Based on their current form, we can expect both teams to find the back of the net. The tip for BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters. Along with that, the draw no bet over Tottenham will also be a suitable option for the punters.
