EPL MATCHDAY 36 PREVIEW: Liverpool VS Tottenham Hotspur

We move 1 step closer to the end of this season as we commence Gameweek 36 in the EPL.

Just like we had in Game week 35, 6 games are scheduled to go down today as well:

  • Brentford versus Southampton,
  • Burnley versus Aston Villa,
  • Chelsea versus Wolverhampton Wanderers,
  • Crystal Palace versus Watford,
  • Brighton and Hove Albion versus Manchester United, and

Okay, let’s have a quick one; considering the EPL table, which of the above games would you choose to watch if you had all resources needed to do so?

Smiles, now you see why we are going for the game between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

Without any further ado, let’s proceed to the preview of this crunchy tie.

EPL (Tottenham Hotspur)

Home Form: Our first point in favor of Antonio Conte’s men.

Had they, Tottenham, not lost to Brighton some weeks ago, they would be on a 5 matches winning streak at home now.

This shows how strong this side are, playing at home, and the massive threat they could pose against Liverpool

Let’s see another point that puts this game in their favor

Top 4 Finish: Certainly another huge point for the home team.

With just 2 points separating them from 4th placed, Arsenal, a win should see them go to 3rd if the latter loses on Sunday.

Don’t also forget they, Tottenham, have a better goal difference, so a win today and a draw for the Gunners still place them in 4th position.

That’s a huge motivation considering how much they, Tottenham, are looking forward to returning to the UCL, isn’t it?

And even if they fail to get a win, they know a loss must be avoided at all costs.

Do the point calculation: a loss today for them, and a win for Arsenal tomorrow.

With 3 games left to play after today, if the above happens, they might just have provided Arsenal with a huge advantage. Right or wrong?

Let’s now shift our attention to Jurgen Klopp’s soldiers.

EPL (Liverpool)

Head To Head: Seems the Reds have become a huge thorn to so many teams playing in the EPL currently with Tottenham not exempted.

They are yet to suffer a defeat to Tottenham in the last 9 games between both sides.

Those games have ended in 7 wins and 2 draws

Massive dominance isn’t it?

Extending this run to.10 games considering their performance since the beginning of this year shouldn’t be a problem, should it?

The above now leads us to our 2nd point in favor of the Reds.

Current Form: At this point, I bet no team in the EPL will be happy if paired to face this Liverpool side.

Since the turn of this year, they’ve played 15 games, won 13, and drawn 2.

Another impressive stat, isn’t it?

This impressive run has also brought the strong belief that they could win a Quadruple by the end of this season.

You can bet the above will be another huge motivation for them to want to get a win at all costs tonight.

CONCLUSION

Like most football lovers, I will place my wager on Liverpool based on the stats before us.

However, don’t also forget impressive runs are meant to come to an end someday, so don’t go too hard.
