Premier League: Spurs have to come out fighting at Anfield

Tottenham head to Liverpool looking to snap a three-match losing streak that has all but ended their chances of finishing in the top four in the Premier League.

After a season of so many positives for Ange Postecoglou and his side, the wheels have come off in recent weeks and they are now seven points behind Aston Villa.

They do have a game in hand on Villa, but at this stage of the season it is all about points in the bag and Spurs are struggling pick them up.

Tottenham are now priced at 13.00 to make the top four, with Villa the hot fancies at 1.03 to claim the final spot.

Like Spurs, Liverpool have stumbled recently, winning just one game in the last five to put a huge dent in their title hopes and they are now 251.00 to win it, which says it all.

The Reds will no doubt fight until the end in Jurgen Klopp’s last season in charge, so there is still all to play for in the Anfield clash.

Reds target strong finish

Just a few weeks ag, Liverpool were right in the mix to win the Premier League title along with Arsenal and Manchester City.

However, a poor run of results, which has included defeats to Crystal Palace and Everton, has seen that challenge come to an end.

By the time they take to the pitch against Tottenham, they could find themselves eight points behind Arsenal and seven behind Manchester City, who also have a game in hand.

But the Reds still have their pride to play for and, with Klopp heading for the exit door, they will want to finish the campaign as strongly as possible.

They will also be out for revenge after suffering a 2-1 defeat at Tottenham back in October.

With both sides looking to attack and score goals, it looks sure to be an open, entertaining game, and over 2.5 goals can be backed at 1.25.

Both teams to score is also available at 1.40.

Liverpool head into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw with West Ham, when Mo Salah was again on the bench.

The 17-goal striker will be hoping to start and he is 4.33 to score the first goal of the game if he does.

Spurs look to respond

Tottenham were once again not at their best as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat against Chelsea, which pretty much ended their top-four hopes.

But there is no time to feel sorry for themselves as there is a quick turnaround before they head to Merseyside.

The Lilywhites now have to win their remaining matches and hope that Aston Villa slip up, if they are to make the top four.

Conceding goals has been an issue for Spurs, and they have kept just one clean sheet in the last 17 Premier League games.

Their failure to defend set-pieces has also been a big problem and they will need to tighten up to have any chance of getting a result against the Reds.

Heung-Min Son will again be the biggest threat in attack and he is 9.00 to score the first goal of the game, or 3.00 to bag at anytime.
