Bet: Both Teams To Score: No

On Saturday Liverpool FC nearly managed to get to the top of Premiere League standings but had conceded a goal from West Bromwich Albion although The Reds beat the rival 2-1. It wasn’t predicted by sports betting experts but three clubs – Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool – are at the head of table and only The Citizens are first having the best goal difference.

It’s rather complicated question for the betting side whether two managers going to use their lineups. So maybe it is obvious that Klopp and Pochettino will give a few key players a breather after battles in Premiere League because championship is a priority for both of them. But Liverpool will host Spurs on Anfield and this is its advantage. This season at home The Reds won all matches except goalless draw with Man United while Tottenham in away games gained four draws and three victories. However, bets noticed that The Lilywhites could score a single goal in two last away matches.

So bookmakers named home side as a favorite predicting the first defeat to the visitors: Liverpool - 1.61; Draw - 3.75; Tottenham - 4.33. Of course Spurs have huge problems with the defense Toby Alderweireld’s injury and Eric Dier may continue at centre-back if the Belgian is not fit. But Jurgen Klopp probably will use Divock Origi, not Firmino or Coutinho, and the task to become simpler for Tottenham defenders. We don’t expect many goals and the bet “Total Match Goals Under 2.5” (2.15) may go through. Another choice may be “Both Teams To Score: No” (2.10).
