Mark Lawrenson is tipping Liverpool to hold Tottenham to a 1-1 draw in the Premier League at Anfield on Saturday night.

The Reds head into the game looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after a stuttering start to the year caused them to drop out of the top four.

Indeed, Liverpool are yet to win a single Premier League game in 2017 and their last victory in the top flight came back on 31 December against Manchester City.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have been in good form in recent weeks and are currently Chelsea’s closest challengers in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are second in the table and nine points behind the leaders as they look to claw their way back into the title race.

However, former Liverpool man Lawrenson is tipping both teams to share the spoils at Anfield in Saturday night’s crunch clash.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: “I think this is a good game to get an improved performance out of Liverpool – a bit like the Chelsea game was last week.

“The Blues were one of the few teams to have come to Anfield in the past few weeks and not just sat with all their men in their own half in a 4-5-1 formation.

“Tottenham are good defensively and well organised full-stop, but their full-backs will bomb on and that will give Liverpool some space to work with, especially on the counter-attack.”
