Tottenham Hotspur – Liverpool
The big derby of the 22th round of the Premier League will take our attention to the capital where Tottenham Hotspur will try to cause Liverpool a first loss for the season. Let us take you through our English Premier League predictions for this clash in London on Saturday.
That’s correct – Liverpool haven’t lost even once in 20 games played in the league this season. Actually they have won 19 of them, which is pretty remarkable. The Reds are looking unstoppable for the title right now, being 13 points ahead of the second Leicester City with a game in hand. There’s no doubt now – Jurgen Klopp’s team will become champion for a first time since 1990.
During the week the German manager put his “B” team on the pitch against Everton in the FA Cup, but it didn’t stop Liverpool from winning the game and progressing in the competition. The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson and Alisson got rested, while the only goal in the game was scored by the 18-years old Curtis Jones.
You can be sure that now Klopp will play his best team against Tottenham on Saturday. Liverpool will try to make another confident step towards the title.
Tottenham Hotspur need the points, too. Spurs are 6th in the table with 30 points, but 6 points behind the 4th Chelsea and the Champions League zone. Jose Mourinho is an experienced manager and he’s aware that his team must find consistency in order to dream for a Champions League return. Tottenham won just two of their last five games in the league and it’s not enough.
During the week Spurs didn’t progress in the FA Cup, but they didn’t get eliminated, too. Their visit to Middlesbrough at the Riverside ended with a 1-1 draw, so there’s going to be a rematch in London.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool on Saturday. Spurs will try to become the first team in the league to beat Liverpool this season, but this won’t be an easy task. Can Mourinho find a way to break Klopp’s machine?
