Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has given his prediction ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League fixture at Liverpool tomorrow afternoon.
Spurs are winless in their last four Premier League games (D1 L3) which has seen them exit the title race and instead are now fighting to keep their place in the top four. They last went five without a win in the same campaign back in February-March 2012 under Harry Redknapp.
Anfield has not been a happy hunting ground for Spurs with Liverpool having lost just one of their last 24 home Premier League games against Spurs (W15 D8 L1), a 0-2 defeat in May 2011 under Kenny Dalglish.
Spurs will be without Serge Aurier, Eric Dier and Harry Winks for the match with the trio missing due to injury.
Merson feels that Tottenham’s recent poor run will continue against Liverpool and Mauricio Pochettino’s side will suffer yet another defeat.
He told Sky Sports: “The pressure is going to be on Liverpool, draws are no good with Manchester City in front. It’s going to be a tight, entertaining game with Liverpool needing to win adding another layer – if Liverpool are drawing with 20 minutes to go they have to go for it. But I think they will get the job done, cranking up the pressure on Spurs in the race for the top four.
