Liverpool ‘almost guaranteed to score’ – says Ex-England man ahead of Tottenham game

Tottenham and Liverpool have both enjoyed fast starts to the season, sitting on 9 and 12 points respectively from the first four games.

Spurs racked up an impressive 3-0 win away to United, while Liverpool have started their season unbeaten, with a 100% record.

The match at Wembley on Saturday will go some way to showing us whether either of these teams have the credentials to challenge Manchester City for the title this season.

A win would put Spurs on level points with the Reds after five games played, but they may be short on confidence after their shock defeat to Watford last time out.

Tottenham will also be without two first team stars, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris as they nurse their respective injuries.

Ex-England and Liverpool man Michael Owen believes that it is almost inevitable that his old club will score at Wembley, but still thinks that it will be a tough test.

Owen told BetVictor: “This is a real test of Liverpool’s title credentials and a win at Wembley will go a long way to proving their doubters wrong.

“With a star-studded side full of attacking options the Reds are almost always guaranteed to score and will look to heap more misery on the hosts who were beaten at Watford last time out.

“Dele Alli hopes to be fit for the Londoners after missing England’s game with Switzerland and although Harry Kane was quiet against Spain he is still the go to man for his club.

“Whether Spurs can stop a rampaging Liverpool forward line looks unlikely, however.

“And five wins on the bounce for Jurgen Klopp’s side beckons.”
