Dietmar Hamann is tipping Liverpool and Tottenham to play out a cagey 0-0 draw at Anfield when the two sides meet on Saturday night.

The Reds head into the game looking to get their season back on track after a disastrous start to 2017.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have not won a Premier League game since the turn of the year, with their last top-flight win coming against Manchester City back on 31 December.

Their miserable recent form has caused them to drop out of the top four and down into fifth place in the Premier League table.

Tottenham, meanwhile have been in brilliant form in recent weeks and are currently Chelsea’s closest challengers in the race for the title, with the Lilywhites second in the table and nine points behind the leaders.

And former Liverpool midfielder Hamann is expecting to see the two teams play out a goalless draw at Anfield this weekend.

Writing in his blog for Paddy Power, Hamann said: “It’s difficult to back Liverpool with any confidence against Spurs considering their recent form. Tottenham are a well drilled side who are very solid defensively. This Spurs team are exactly the type of side that seem to cause Liverpool problems.

“Tottenham will take all three points if they continue the form they’ve been in since Christmas. Although a draw probably suits both teams as Liverpool aim to stop the rot and Spurs look to consolidate a top four finish.

“A point away at Liverpool is never a bad result and Klopp’s men just need to chip away to build a bit of confidence back. With that in mind backing a cagey 0-0 draw might not be a bad move.”
