Tottenham vs Liverpool Preview and Prediction: Premier League Match on 28.01.2021

Preview and Prediction

The Reds is currently in crisis of confidence. Their degrading form, negative trends and on the verge of losing the title race has become something Jurgen Klopp has to overcome immediately if they are to save their domestic campaign. This midweek, another tough contender awaits them, Jose Mourinho’s Spurs. Both teams are sitting on the fifth and sixth separated by one point and will be squaring off in Tottenham stadium.

The teams’ previous games

Spurs continued their unbeaten run last weekend in the fourth round of FA Cup. They hammered Wycombe Wanderers 4-1 on the road. Although they conceded first by Fred Onyedinma, Toby Alderweireld and Co did not panic and managed to equalise just before the interval by Gareth Bale. The second half was completely under their control as Harry Winks scored one followed by Tanguy Ndombele’s brace.

Liverpool were still unable to prevent themselves from another defeat. Last weekend in FA Cup fourth round, they once again met Manchester United but had to lose 2-3 in a thrilling encounter. Mo Salah gave them the lead first but so Mason Greenwood levelled the score sheet. Marcus Rashford then put United on the front. Mo Salah again netted to find an equaliser. Bruno Fernandes finally bagged the winning goal through a free kick.

Possible tactic

Jose Mourinho might still be deploying 4-2-3-1 with possible transition to 4-3-3 or 3-4-3. Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min would be playing as duo frontman supported by Tanguy Ndombele and Steven Bergwijn as Giovanni Lo Celso and Matt Doherty are ruled out alongside Ben Davies and Delle Alli.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp is still likely to opt for 4-3-3 but a new formation or tactical approach is considerably needed at the moment. The front three are still occupied by Mo Salah, Firmino and Sadio Mane, but in the midfield, James Milner or Curtis Jones and Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain are better option to accompany Thiago rather than Gini Wijnaldum who seems to be losing his peak form after Barcelona lays their interest in signing him.

Players to watch

Apart from the regular Kane and Son duo, Tanguy Ndombele is also one of Spurs’ key men this season. The former Lyon man has notched up three goals in the past two games. He could be the key of Mourinho’s men’s attack and defence.

Jurgen Klopp needs to rely on different main scorer apart from their trident following their disappointing or inconsistent performance lately. The absence of Diogo Jota due to his injury should push the German boss to consider employing Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xerdan Shaqiri more often in the starting IX.

Tottenham vs Liverpool Prediction

The clash of Klopp and Mourinho is always exciting. In this tight affair, Harry Kane and Co is slightly more in favour of sealing a narrow win over The Reds which are in their difficult period and lower confidence.

Betting odds

It is a mouth watering fixture for sure, Jurgen Klopp’s men are backed to win at 6/5, whereas the Mourinho’s men’s win market is at 27/11.  The draw result is at the value of 11/4.
