Sky Sports pundit predicts Liverpool FC v Tottenham
Charlie Nicholas looks ahead to Liverpool FC's run-in in the Premier League title race
Charlie Nicholas is tipping Tottenham Hotspur to hold Liverpool FC to a 1-1 draw win the Premier League later this month.
The Reds are currently sitting at the top of the Premier League table as they look to try and beat Manchester City to the Premier League title this season.
Liverpool FC are two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table but have played a game more than Pep Guardiola’s men.
The Merseyside outfit will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday 31 March.
And former Arsenal star Nicholas is tipping Spurs to hold Liverpool FC to a 1-1 draw next weekend.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “Tottenham is the toughest game for Liverpool. Spurs will be trying to get something from it.
“That is where I do see Liverpool finding it awkward. The players will have come back from international duty from everywhere and that will be an awkward night for Liverpool.”
The Arsenal legend also previewed the remaining other fixtures in Liverpool FC’s run-in.
He continued: “The Saints clash is another tremendously difficult game. Hasenhuttl is getting results, and I am going to go for a draw again.
“Liverpool will beat Chelsea for me. Chelsea are getting the manager through until summer and then assessing. They are eyeing up Europa league so they may have their eyes off this match.
“It will be a comfortable win against Huddersfield. They may be a free-spirit and may already be down, but Liverpool could close the goal difference. I imagine Newcastle will be safe by the time they play Liverpool.
“Rafa Benitez will come out and want to be awkward. Wolves will be looking back at their season, I am expecting it to go to the last Sunday and I do think it will go to the last Sunday. By that time Wolves may be in the FA Cup final and resting a few.”
Liverpool FC are still searching to win their first major trophy since Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.
The Reds reached the Champions League final last season but ended up losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in the showpiece last may.
The Merseyside outfit will take on FC Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals next month.
