|Date & Time||Saturday September 15, 2018, 7:30 AM (EDT)|
The Line: Liverpool +140 / Tottenham +190 / Draw +225 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Tottenham will host Liverpool at White Hart Lane. Both teams are among the best in England so we should be able to witness a great match.
Liverpool started the season in amazing form as they won all 4 of their matches and are currently top of the English Premier League ladder. This team is incredible going forward with the likes of Salah and Mane scoring freely. The defense has also been very good this season which is indicated by the fact that they have only conceded 1 goal in the entire season. Liverpool currently have the best defensive record in the Premier League. That being said, this will be the first major test for Liverpool as they have not played any top teams yet. The task will be even harder since Liverpool will be away from home.
On the other side of the pitch, Tottenham have had a decent start to the season although they played very poorly in their last match which they lost to Watford. The Spurs are currently 5th on the Premier League ladder and will hope to improve since they should be much higher. This team managed to beat Manchester United away from home so they will be feeling very confident heading into this clash. Harry Kane and Lucas have both been playing very well for Tottenham and the pair have scored multiple goals this season. With the players in good form and the crowd behind them, Tottenham will be hard to beat.
The last time Liverpool and Tottenham met was last season at Anfield where the game ended in a 2-2 draw.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Tottenham to win this match. This should be a close match but Tottenham have the advantage of playing at home and that should be massive considering how influential the fans are at White Hart Lane. I see a close Tottenham win.
