Why you should back Liverpool

The Reds have won seven straight against Spurs, outscoring them 14-6, including a 2-0 win in the 2019 Champions League final. They also have been dominating league play in recent weeks, with a 22-2 advantage in goals over their eight-game win streak. Liverpool leads the league with 48 goals and have conceded just 13, third-fewest, while averaging more than 19 shots per game. Mohamed Salah leads the EPL in both goals (15) and assists (nine), whilen Diogo Jota (nine goals) also has been dangerous in front of goal.

Liverpool has scored at least once in 32 straight games, posting 85 goals over that span. Only four teams in the EPL have scored fewer than Tottenham (16), and Spurs is last in the league in shots (153). The Reds are second in possession (63.7), while Tottenham is at just 50 percent. Spurs will be without leading scorer Son Heung-Min (six goals), and Harry Kane has just one league goal. 

Why you should back Tottenham

Spurs have had two weeks off, and both teams are dealing with COVID issues. The Reds being without Virgil Van Djik and Fabinho is a definite advantage for a team that has struggled to find the net. Kane (one goal, one assist) has struggled mightily in league games, but he has 21 goals in 29 matches with Tottenham and England since July. He is well overdue to break through in league play, and this is an important match for Spurs. They have been on an upswing since Antonio Conte took over following the firing of manager Nuno Espirito Santo last month.   

Steven Bergwijn and Dele Alli (one goal) are likely to take over for Son and Lucas Moura (one goal) in the attack, with the latter two out with COVID. Pierre Hojbjerg (three goals), Sergio Reguilon (three assists) and Oliver Skipp can make a difference from their midfield spots, and Conte has implemented a strong defensive plan. Tottenham has posted consecutive clean sheets while scoring seven goals on its three-game win streak.
