With the Premier League season winding down, title contenders Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur who are desperate to keep pace in the race for the top four. This massive Liverpool v Tottenham clash takes place on May 7 at Liverpool’s home ground of Anfield.
Liverpool v Tottenham: Massive Game in the Premier League
Liverpool Current Run of Form
Liverpool have been on a hot run of form that’s seen them stay neck and neck with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. In league play alone, the Reds have won four of their last five games, with one draw in the mix. In fact, you’d need to go back to November 2021 to find Liverpool’s last defeat in Premier League action.
Beyond the league, Liverpool have made strides in both the FA Cup and the Champion’s League, beating Manchester City in the semi-final of the former, and eliminating Villarreal in a thrilling semi-final of the latter. No matter where you look, Liverpool are flying high right now and we’re not sure who can stop them.
Tottenham Hotspur Run of Form
Tottenham Hotspur have been relatively hit or miss recently. They’ve won three of their last five league games, but also dropped four points in that time, including a loss to Brighton & Hove Albion. Unlike Liverpool, Tottenham don’t have any cup action or European football to distract them since their FA Cup elimination at the hands of Middlesbrough. This could give Antonio Conte’s side a slight edge as they’re sure to be well-rested and focused on their sole target of beating out rivals Arsenal for a top-four spot.
Recent Head to Head
Liverpool dominate this fixture in recent history. While Tottenham held the title contenders to a draw when the teams met in December, you’d have to go back to the 2017/18 season to find the last time Tottenham beat Liverpool. Looking at the last ten matches between these two sides, the record favours Liverpool with seven wins, two draws, and one Tottenham win.
Liverpool v Tottenham Prediction
Liverpool, particularly at home, is a daunting task for anyone, but especially Tottenham. Jurgen Klopp’s side have only lost one of their last 27 home Premier League games against Tottenham, with Tottenham’s last away win at Anfield coming in May 2011. Given Liverpool’s fantastic form and Tottenham’s inability to get results at Anfield, this one seems like a pretty clear win for Liverpool. The only question will be, how many goals will be scored.
