Liverpool will be looking to reclaim top spot in the Premier League table when they take on Tottenham at Anfield on Saturday night.

The Reds remain on course for an unprecedented quadruple after seeing-off a spirited Villarreal side on Tuesday night. The Spaniard’s shocked Liverpool with two first half goals to level the tie at 2-2 but the Merseysiders staged a superb second half comeback to win the game 3-2, progressing to the Champions League final 5-2 on aggregate.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s men will turn their focus back to domestic matters as they continue their battle with Manchester City for the title. Liverpool can reclaim top spot and move two points clear of City with a win over Spurs on Saturday. That would really put the pressure on Man City to respond the following day, with Pep Guardiola’s side still recovering from their stunning Champions League exit to Real Madrid.

Tottenham head to Anfield in desperate need of points themselves as they face a fierce fight with Arsenal for fourth spot. The Gunners currently hold a 2-point lead so Spurs need a win over Liverpool to climb into the top four and put the pressure on Arsenal ahead of their clash with Leeds United on Sunday.

Betting

Liverpool versus Tottenham will be one of the biggest matches in uk betting this weekend so we expect lots of activity in the markets. Bookmakers and online casinos will be vying for business so punters should look around for the best odds. Gambling sites will also be offering welcome bonuses and enhanced odds to bettors to entice them to their website, so it will pay to do your research before placing any bets this weekend.

Looking at the current odds at several bookmakers and online casinos, Liverpool are the 4/9 favourites to claim all three points at Anfield. The draw is priced at 15/4 while you can back Tottenham to win at 11/2.

Match odds:

  • Liverpool win 4/9
  • Draw 15/4
  • Tottenham win 11/2

So the smart money is on a Liverpool victory on Saturday night and you’d be a brave man to bet against Klopp’s men continuing their stunning form. The Reds have goal threats from all over the pitch but Mohamed Salah is the leading scorer in the Premier League, so understandably the online casinos and bookies have the Egyptian down as favourite to open the scoring in this match. You can currently get odds of 16/5 on Salah to be first scorer.

Liverpool to win 2-1 looks like a solid bet as well, so if we combine this with Salah being first goalscorer in a 2-1 win, we can get tempting odds of 33/1 at some of the leading betting sites.

Injury boost

Liverpool have also been handed a big injury boost with the news that Roberto Firmino has been passed fit after recovering from a muscle problem that’s kept him out recently. Klopp now has a fully-fit squad to choose from this weekend and he has plenty of squad depth if he wants to freshen things up following the Villarreal game.

As for Tottenham, they’ll still be without defender Matt Doherty due to a knee injury while Oliver Skipp is also still on the sidelines with a groin problem. Sergio Reguilon is another absentee for Antonio Conte with the full-back nursing a groin injury.
