Michael Owen states his prediction for Liverpool FC v Tottenham
The Liverpool FC legend is tipping the Reds to play out a high-scoring Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday
Michael Owen is backing Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur to play out a high-scoring fixture in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds ended a two-game losing run on Tuesday night after Liverpool FC were 3-0 winners against promoted side Huddersfield Town at John Smith’s Stadium.
Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all got on the score sheet to help Jurgen Klopp’s men move to within three points of Manchester United.
Only runaway leaders Manchester City have scored more goals than Liverpool FC in the Premier League table in the current campaign.
Tottenham, on the other hand, were 2-0 winners against second-placed Manchester United at Wembley on Wednesday night thanks to Christian Eriksen’s 11-second opener and a Phil Jones own goal.
Spurs were 4-1 winners against Liverpool FC at the home of English football back in September as Mauricio Pochettino’s side managed to expose the Reds’ poor defence.
Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is tipping the top-four contenders to entertain both sets of supporters with a high-scoring clash at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
“Liverpool will be looking for revenge against Spurs following their 4-1 defeat at Wembley earlier in the season,” Owen told BetVictor.
“Spurs were very good against a disappointing United at Wembley midweek, but this is the acid test. They failed the Anfield examination in the corresponding fixture last season when they were soundly beaten and the north London outfit have only won one of their last 23 away PL games against Liverpool.
“Harry Kane (21) leads Mo Salah (19) in the race for the Golden Boot and it would be no surprise to see both add to their impressive individual tally in what looks certain to be an open attacking game.”
Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table and two points ahead of Tottenham.
The Reds will take on Portuguese giants FC Porto in the Champions League round of 16, while Tottenham will come up against Serie A champions Juventus.
