After successfully negotiating the Europa League playoffs, Spurs return to league action against Brendan Rodgers’ men, with our tipster backing plenty of goals
Liverpool, after starting with a win against Southampton, lost away to Manchester City, with the champions looking very impressive in their 3-1 victory.
Brendan Rodgers will be keen to bounce back after a disappointing showing, and may take confidence into this game after the Reds destroyed Spurs in both of their league fixtures last season.
Despite last season's performances bet365 can’t split the sides, pricing them both at 8/5 (2.60) to win, with the draw at 12/5 (3.40).
Although unlikely to have too much of an effect as it's the start of the season, Liverpool could have an advantage of some fresher legs as they didn’t play midweek.
Spurs however, had to overcome AEL in the Europa League playoff round, which they did comfortably, winning 3-0 on the night with goals from Andros Townsend and Harry Kane. With the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli all unused, any impact on Spurs should be minimised.
Both sides have seen plenty of goals so far this season, with Liverpool's games bringing seven goals in their two fixtures so far. With Spurs matches averaging 2.75 goals this season, it’s no surprise to see both teams to score at just 1/2 (1.50) with bet365 and over 2.5 goals at 8/13 (1.62).
With these bets a tad too short to back, if you combine the two, then it may be worth backing. Bet365 price both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 5/6 (1.83), which seems like a fantastic price when you consider the attacking threat on display from both sides.
With Liverpool showing that goals are still to be expected at both ends so far this season, punters can bank on more of the same this weekend, as they face a Spurs side who have netted 10 goals in four matches.
