Meanwhile, Spurs will be concerned about the ongoing threat from Arsenal and Manchester United for their third place. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Liverpool were able to register a third successive win in all competitions after beating Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage just before the international break. The Reds are now unbeaten in the last 12 matches across all competitions.
The recent run of form for Spurs has been extremely poor with the team losing 2-1 against Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium. This was the last action for Spurs and it was back in March 9.
The reverse fixture witnessed Liverpool getting a hard-fought 2-1 victory at the Wembley Stadium. The last meeting between the two clubs at the Anfield produced a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a victory for Liverpool.

Mauricio Pochettino and most of the Spurs team has been concerned about the club’s recent form. A return of just one victory in the last five games across all competitions has sent the team into a nervous situation. Meanwhile, teams like Manchester United and Arsenal have been able to profit from Spurs’ recent dropped points. Liverpool have a major commitment to get a victory and keep ahead of Manchester City, who play a day ahead. There is a strong likelihood of Liverpool coming into the game in the second place and there will be a strong motivation to win the match. Our preview would go with a success for Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Tottenham draw odds: 4.00
Tottenham win odds: 6.00
Correct Score odds
The Reds have been a specialist when it comes to scoring at home this season. Liverpool have been able to get over 2.5 goals in the last three league matches at Anfield. Spurs, meanwhile, have been very lethargic but they have the potential to come up with goals due to the presence of players like Harry Kane. Our correct score prediction would stick with a 2-1 victory for Liverpool just like in the reverse fixture.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is quite incredible that just one of the last eight league games at Anfield has produced under 2.5 goals. Such has been the entertaining nature of recent league matches on this ground that it is unfair to expect anything other than a high-scoring game, according to our total goals prediction, even with Spurs possessing a strong defence.

First Goalscorer odds
Mohamed Salah remains the top scorer at Liverpool but his recent form has been overshadowed by Sadio Mane, who has moved level on goals after the opener against Fulham. Mane has been able to get seven goals in his last five appearances for Liverpool. Mane’s last goal against Spurs was just over two years ago at Anfield and he happened to open the scoring in that encounter. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Sadio Mane.
