    Tip Reasoning

    Liverpool’s disastrous start to 2017 continued last weekend when they managed to lose 2-0 at Hull, to make it five games in all competitions without a win. They have still only won once this calendar year, drawing four times and losing five. That singular win came against League Two outfit Plymouth Argyle as well, so it’s certainly not the best of times for Jurgen Klopp.

    This has seen them drop out of the Premier League top four, and they now occupy 5th position with just one more point than rivals Manchester United in 5th. They could make it back into the top four with a win here, but they need to start performing again if they are to remain there.

    Liverpool’s last five games have seen them lose to Swansea, Southampton, Wolves, and Hull and pick up a draw at home to Chelsea. This seems to be the trend with the hosts at the moment – They lose against teams they should be easily beating but then manage to hold on against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.

    Tottenham extended their unbeaten streak to 11 matches in all competitions last weekend with a tight 1-0 win over Middlesbrough. They have won nine of these 11 games, scoring a huge 28 goals in the process and pushing themselves up to 2nd in the table. There is a nine point gap before they reach leaders Chelsea though.

    Away from home they have won two and drawn two of their last four matches, and their usually solid defence looks a bit vulnerable on the road. They have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine trips away in all competitions, although they have scored in seven of them.

    The likely absence of Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen won’t help their chances of a clean sheet on Saturday either, and despite Liverpool’s poor form, they have managed to score in 11 of their last 13 home games.

    The hosts have their own problems though. They could be without both Ragnar Klavan and Dejan Lovren on Saturday, and they have only kept four clean sheets in their last 13 home games. One of these was against Plymouth as well, and they have conceded seven goals in the four games since then.

    This should give the Spurs attackers something to look forward to, and for our goalscorer predictions the best value offering looks to be Dele Alli at 21/10. The talented midfielder has scored five goals in his last four away games and has a total of 11 league goals to his name this season.

    This makes odds of 7/10 for Both Teams to Score look a very good value bet, so I’m backing that as my main predictions. As far as the scoreline goes I think Spurs could have enough to take the three points here, so I’m backing a 2-1 correct score predictions at 12/1.
