Klopp’s Liverpool look to reverse fortunes against high flying Tottenham

It is a pivotal weekend ahead at the top of the EPL as second place Tottenham face fifth place Liverpool at Anfield.

With only four points separating the two sides the win could have a huge implication on where the two teams end up finishing.

 

If Spurs are able to win they will cement their credentials as a genuine contender for the title this campaign and will put a nice seven points cushion between themselves and the Reds.

If Liverpool wins they will put themselves back in the mix for the title but if they lose they are going to be struggling to qualify for the champions league next season.

Liverpool

The Reds are on a dreadful run of form and the last time they won a match in the EPL was back on the 28th of December.

If Klopp does not turn things around fast the club is at risk of not qualifying for the Champions League.

The match will go a long way in deciding which team ends up playing in the world’s most prestigious competition or be relegated to the Europa League. After the Spurs game, Liverpool faces Leicester City away and Arsenal at home.

If they do not pick up enough points over the next three matches their season could be in disarray.

At one point in the campaign many were backing them for the title and if they are going to have any chance at all it needs to start with a win this weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur

After dropping points to Sunderland away the last match against Middlesbrough was vital for Spurs to win if they are going to keep the pressure on Chelsea.

They were able to do this through a Harry Kane penalty and are nine points away from the leaders.

Spurs cannot afford any more slip-ups if they are going to narrow the gap and will need to pass a huge test at Anfield.

After the match against the Liverpool, Spurs have two home matches against Stoke and Everton.

If they can win the next three games they will be in with a chance to win the EPL and if they fail they could be dragged into the battle for Champions League qualification.

Liverpool v Tottenham prediction

If current form guides are anything to go by Spurs should get the three points and carry on their chase for the title.

Liverpool always raises their game against the big teams it is the ones at the bottom of the table they seem to struggle against.

It is a must-win match for both teams with the loser losing ground of the pack. I expect it to be fast paced with plenty of goals and Spurs to edge it by a single goal.

Prediction 2-3

With Harry Kane banging in the goals for fun at the moment, having a punt on him to find the back of the net against Liverpool is an attractive proposition.
