Michael Owen has shared his prediction ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League match between Spurs and Liverpool.
Owen’s former side are the visitors to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and currently sit at the top of the table with a twenty eight point cushion over the North Londoners.
When both sides met in the Champions League final back in June, not even the most pessimistic of Spurs fans would have envisaged just how much of a gulf has emerged between both sides.
If Spurs are to end Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season, they’ll have to do it without star striker Harry Kane who is out until April with a hamstring injury.
Tottenham have won just two of their last 12 games in which Harry Kane has played no part (D4 L6), failing to win any of their four such matches this term (D3 L1).
Owen has tipped Jurgen Klopp’s side to continue their push for the title by taking all three points back to Anfield.
He told BetVictor: “Spurs have only kept one clean sheet in 12 games under Jose Mourinho in all competitions, although he will have been delighted to see his side come from a goal down to get a replay in the FA Cup at the Riverside on Sunday.
“What else can you say about Liverpool? The vast majority of Jurgen Klopp’s side have not played since their fluent 2-0 win at home to Sheffield United on January 2nd, and their FA Cup win with a largely reserve side shows the confidence, belief and talent at the club at present.
“Liverpool have picked up 58 points from their 20 league games so far this season. Jose Mourinho would love to stop the Reds in their tracks, but this is Liverpool’s time and I expect to see Jurgen Klopp’s side march on at the top of the league.
“Liverpool to win and both teams to score.”
