Tottenham will face Liverpool at White Hart Lane as both sides will look to win and send their first respective strong signals out to the rest of field. The Lane will be packed and Tottenham will need to be on the top of their game in order to please their fans because otherwise the likes of Coutinho and Roberto Firmino could kill the North London Party.

Liverpool are by really improving under Klopp and with the sale of Christian Benteke to Crystal Palace, this side is really one that German manager would have build himself. This team is playing a style of football that is really high pressing and they will look to continue this style going forward since it worked so well the last time they were in North London playing against Arsenal. A loss to Burnley took place last week and that would not have helped Liverpool’s confidence but a win here will turn it straight around so I am expecting the reds to put up a strong performance.

Tottenham on the other side of the coin just scraped past Crystal Palace and this time they will want to have a more comfortable win. Harry Kane is yet to score this season and with tough games coming up for Spurs, it will important that he comes back into form. That being said, I am expecting Tottenham to win this game. The side is in pretty good form and although they failed to win on opening day, they have look pretty good.

We are getting a more than acceptable price to bet on Tottenham and I am going to be putting on a medium sized bet since anything to small is losing value while it is not good enough to over bet. Along with this, I think we can expect a high scoring game with the Liverpool defense looking shaky so over 2.5 goals also seems like a good bet. 

Pick:
Tottenham
