Liverpool vs Tottenham Preview and Prediction – May 05, 2024

As Jurgen Klopp’s tenure at Liverpool nears its end, the Reds face a pivotal clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield, aiming to close the five-point gap with Premier League leaders Arsenal in the final stretch of the season.

On Sunday, Liverpool hosts Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield, with Spurs aiming to solidify their position in the race for a top-four finish.

Match Preview

Liverpool drew 2-2 with West Ham United last weekend, rallying from behind and ending the game with 72% possession and 28 shots.

They’ve stumbled recently, winning one, drawing two, and losing two of their last five matches after losing just two of their first 31 Premier League games.

Despite this, Liverpool has lost only one of their 17 home league games this season, winning 13 and drawing three, scoring over 2.5 goals in 11 of those matches.

To stay in the title race, Liverpool must beat Tottenham and hope for slip-ups from Arsenal and Manchester City.

Tottenham has struggled away from home lately, suffering a 3-0 defeat to Fulham and a 4-0 thrashing by Newcastle United last month.
