Tottenham Hotspur have had a terrific start to the season with two wins from two. Last weekend Spurs scored four goals and beat QPR very easily. New manager Pochettino has continued to implement his passing game at White Hart Lane Eric Lamela has started to show his true potential and with Christian Erickson, Bentalab, Adebayor all playing well it would appear as if Tottenham have a real chance to push for a fourth place finish.
Liverpool will see Mario Balotelli on their line up for the first time and while there is no doubting his talent questions will always be asked about his temperament. Can Brendan Rodgers get the best out of the maverick striker and will Balotelli fit with Sturridge up front? Liverpool were destroyed by Manchester City where City ran over Liverpool's midfield. Defensively Liverpool appear to have the same problems they had last year and the addition of lovren does not seem to have solved their defensive deficiencies.

A game which should be lots of fun to watch I am siding with the home team. I doubted the ability of Tottenham before last week's game with QPR but was proven wrong majorly by a side that are playing together and playing exciting stylish football. I think Liverpool will also contribute to what should be a great and exciting game. At this price though I can't ignore the home side. Take Tottenham to win. Follow me on Twitter@antonpippo
