So, before you bet on Liverpool vs. Tottenham, let’s learn more about the match preview and the recent form of the two teams.

Match Preview

Spurs fans will not be confident about this match based on the stats. They do not have the highest confidence level of any Premier League fans.

Spurs have lost 30 Premier League matches against Liverpool compared to the 14 they have won. In addition, they have only won two of the last 35 away league games at Anfield, and that’s not since May 2011.

Liverpool has only lost one of its last 20 Premier League matches against Spurs and is undefeated in ten consecutive head-to-head encounters.

It would be bad for Spurs supporters to read that, let alone concede goals for fun away from home this season. In 2022-23 they have already conceded 31 goals on the road, their highest number since 2008-09 (35)

This is not the most difficult Liverpool team they have faced in recent years. However, even if Liverpool wins all six of its remaining games, it will still finish the season with 21 fewer points than last year (92).

Liverpool is tough to defeat at Anfield. They’ve lost only one of the 15 games they played there this season. It’s also true they can force their opponents to capitulate; just ask Manchester United or Bournemouth. Of the 39 Premier League goals that Liverpool has scored at home this season, 16 of them have been in those two matches.

Last Meeting: Liverpool 2-1 Hotspur Tottenham: 6 Nov 2022 (Premier League)

In November, a 2-1 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League was Liverpool’s first away victory of 2022-2023.

Liverpool’s away points tally increased by more than twofold with this victory. After only winning two points in their first five away games of 2022-23 (including defeats against struggling Nottingham Forest and Leeds United), Liverpool have now won four away games.

Recent Form

Liverpool is looking to win four straight matches for the first time since December, when they last won in the Premier League. If they can avoid losing at Anfield, and considering the two draws against Arsenal and Chelsea, Liverpool will be able to go six Premier League matches unbeaten in 2022-23 for the first.

Only Man United (36), Arsenal (39), and Man City (43) have won more home points between 2022 and 23. The Reds have only lost one of their 38 league matches played at Anfield since April 2021. (W28 D9L1).

Spurs have won only one of its last six Premier League games (W1 D3L2), and three managers have been in charge during that time.

Recently, the Spurs have been performing well in terms of scoring goals. Their performance in the last seven English Premier League matches was exceptional, with an average of 4.43 goals per game. However, the same cannot be said for Tottenham, as they have conceded 17 times more goals than they have scored (a total of 14 goals) during this period.

It’s worth noting that the Spurs are currently going through a rough patch in away games in the Premier League. In fact, their current five-game winless streak is the longest since November 2019, with two draws against teams that are threatened with relegation (Southampton and Everton) and losses against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City, and the devastating 6-1 loss at Newcastle United last weekend.

Tottenham vs. Liverpool Prediction

Before kick-off on Sunday at Anfield, Liverpool is a clear favourite, with the Opta Supercomputer projecting that they have a 55.2% chance of victory compared with Spurs, who only stand a 20% chance.

Though Liverpool and Tottenham emerged as strong pre-season contenders, neither is currently expected to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League standings this year. Liverpool stands as an outside bet with an 8.7% chance, according to Opta supercomputer data. Still, realistically, they are unlikely to displace either Manchester United (94.5%) or Newcastle United (95.5%) from qualifying spots for UEFA Champions League qualification – as Arsenal and Manchester City already hold those spots.

Tottenham has only a 0.3% chance of finishing in the top four; however, their chances are greater of finishing fifth and qualifying for next season’s UEFA Europa League with 9.9% chances compared with Liverpool (66.8%), Aston Villa (5.9%) or Brighton (8.5%).
