Anfield has been a fortress for Liverpool this season, with thirteen wins coming from fifteen matches which have built the platform for a concerned title push which shows no sign of stopping.
Brendan Rodgers’ team are firmly in the title mix with seven games remaining, with Wednesday’s 2-1 win against Sunderland moving them just a point behind Chelsea, the latter of who are yet to visit Anfield for what could be a title decider.
However, the primary focus is beating Tottenham on Sunday and it’s a tricky fixture against a team who have won nine of their fifteen matches on the road this term, with Tim Sherwood’s side coming from two goals down to beat Southampton last Sunday.
The visitors have had more preparation time for this game and odds of 13/2 about them winning would have seemed humungous nearer the start of the campaign, with Tottenham out for revenge after a 5-0 mauling at White Hart Lane earlier this term.
Sherwood is unlikely to continue as manager come the summer, although he will have his team revved up for this match and there is still an outside chance that the north London side can qualify for next season’s Champions League.
We should note that Spurs were close to winning at Benfica in their recent Europa League away match, with Christian Eriksen looking to torment Liverpool who might have previously signed a talented midfielder who scored two goals against the Saints last weekend.
Eriksen is a 16/1 chance to score first although the majority of First Goalscorer money will be on Liverpool’s twin strikers who will look to break down a Tottenham defence who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their past five matches.
Younes Kaboul and Jan Vertonghen could be in for a difficult afternoon and Luis Suarez is easy enough to back at odds of 3/1 with Ladbrokes, with the Uruguayan having drawn a blank against the Black Cats and he doesn’t go many games without finding the net.
Daniel Sturridge is slightly bigger at 4/1, although captain Steven Gerrard is twice the price and it’s worth bearing in mind that the skipper is on penalty duties as well as taking the occasional free-kick as he did to great effect against the Black Cats.
Perhaps the visitors might be thwarted due to the fact that Emmanuel Adebayor is missing and Roberto Soldado is yet to start firing for Tottenham, with a Liverpool win to nil available at 19/10, with Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel looking rock solid at the back.
