Neither Stoke nor Manchester City deserved to beat Spurs in those games and we should also remember that Tottenham tore Liverpool apart earlier this season at White Hart Lane, with the Reds thrashed 4-0 and down to nine men by the final whistle.
Nevertheless, there will be a superb atmosphere at Anfield to welcome back Luis Suarez after the eight-game suspension and Liverpool are available at 23/20 (Paddy Power – £50 free bets) to claim a victory that will put them ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League table.
Suarez will be a popular bet at 13/2 (Stan James free bets) to score the opening goal of this game, although Kenny Dalglish might choose to also keep faith with Andy Carroll and Craig Bellamy based on the fact they both scored at Molineux last week.
Tottenham have won six times away from home this season and we know that they will take the game to Liverpool just as they did when narrowly losing 3-2 to Manchester City. Some will find the 5/2 (bet365 bookmaker) about an away win absolutely massive based on the fact that they are 11 points better off than their opponents.
Spurs will be encouraged by the possibility of moving to within three points of Manchester United following the latter’s incredible 3-3 draw at Chelsea, with Gareth Bale likely to prove a handful for the Liverpool defence and the Welshman is surprisingly big at 11/1 (Stan James) to score the first goal of the game.
After all, we are talking about a player that has 14 for the season and will rival Robin Van Persie and David Silva when it comes to the Player of the Season Awards.
