Continuing on their free-scoring antics in Europe, Liverpool will now turn their attentions back to domestic duties when Tottenham make the trip to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
Although Jurgen Klopp’s men may have left it late to snatch a point off of Manchester United last weekend, the Reds still find themselves in pole position to lift their first Premier League crown.
While Liverpool might still be the only side in England’s top-tier to boast an unbeaten record, Tottenham have continued on what has been a worryingly inconsistent spell.
Despite picking up a thumping 5-0 win over Crvena Zvezda in midweek, the Lilywhites have won just one of their last four top-flight appearances and enduring their worst domestic start in recent memory.
Including picking up a 2-0 win when the two sides met in the Champions League Final over the summer, Liverpool have won their last three matchups against Sunday’s guests and a similar outcome can be found at 1/2 with Bet365.
Finally Liverpool’s year?
Although their Premier League performances over the past month may have seen them come under some very mild scrutiny, Jurgen Klopp’s men are still the only side in England’s top-tier who boast an unbeaten start.
Putting in another lethal European performance in their 4-1 win away at Genk on Wednesday, the former Borussia Dortmund boss also finds his side holding a six-point buffer over the defending champions.
Quickly approaching November, Sunday’s hosts now find themselves in pole position to lift their first Premier League title come May.
The Reds are now priced at 4/5 with Coral to come out on top this season, ahead of Manchester City who find themselves at 11/10.
Once again finding the net on foreign soil in midweek, Klopp will be looking for Sadio Mane to lead their charge at Anfield this weekend.
Now bagging three goals in his last four matches across all formats, including back-to-back strikes in the Champions League, you might be interested to know that the Ballon d’Or nominee can be found at 1/1 with 888Sport to extend on that tally on Sunday.
Spurs seek stability
With Tottenham putting five past Crvena Zvezda on Tuesday, it is no surprise that Mauricio Pochettino is calling on his men to build off of that result.
Still enduring their worst Premier League start in recent memory, Sunday’s guests have remarkably won just three of their last 13 matches across all competitions, a run that stems back to the opening weekend.
With their recent run epitomized by their 3-0 hammering away at Brighton prior to the international break, Spurs have now lost back-to-back Premier League matches on the road and have failed to win any of their last 10 top-flight matches on their travels.
If Tottenham are to end Liverpool’s unbeaten run this weekend, then fans in North London will be looking for the red-hot Harry Kane to spearhead their charge.
The England skipper bagged a brace in the Champions League on Tuesday and now has six goals in his last eight matches across all competitions.
You might be interested to know that Kane can be found at 8/5 with 888sport to continue his purple patch on Merseyside.
