EFL Cup Odds and Match Preview: Liverpool vs. TottenhamPublished October 25, 2016 by Sol FH
Liverpool vs Tottenham tonight and the Reds are big favorites to win. Check out all the action at 19:45 GMT.
Tonight will be the second meeting of the year between Liverpool and Tottenham. The first match at White Hart Lane was a few weeks ago in the regular Premier League Season and it ended in a frantic 1-1 draw. With only one point separating the Reds and the Hot Spur on the league table Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino are eager to make a statement tonight.
Both sides saw big wins in the prior round of the EFL Cup, with Liverpool beating Derby County 3-0 and Tottenham ravaging Gillingham 5-0. The Reds are also after a big win against West Brom on Saturday night, which brought them up to 20 points on level with leaders Man. City and Arsenal. Tottenham was held to a single point draw bringing them to 19 points along with Chelsea, whom crushed Manchester United 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.
The two sides cover more ground per match than virtually all other teams in the Premier League, playing high up in the pitch. This helps them win back possession in good goal scoring position and force their opponents' defense to break formation to cover the attack. Liverpool leads the league in distance covered and the Hot Spurs are in third place just behind City. This match will definitely be fast paced and a good one to watch.
There is not big injury news to report with the Reds still without Ojo and Gomez and the Hot Spur without Alderweireld and Hart still out. With the odds in big favor of the Reds, punters will love the underdog and draw odds ahead of this match.
