Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool
Both teams head into Sunday’s tie after pleasing European performances. Whilst Tottenham earned a hugely respectable point at the Bernabeu against Spanish champions Real Madrid, Liverpool set a record for the highest away victory in the Champions League with their 7-0 win at Maribor.
Jurgen Klopp will be delighted that his side finally showed a clinical edge after there has been much criticism of their ability to turn chances into goals. Whilst there has been negativity, the German will have known the ability his side had and will have known it was a matter of time until it all clicks. He’ll hope they can continue that into Sunday’s tough clash.
Tottenham are one of the league’s form teams at the moment and in Harry Kane, they have one of Europe’s deadliest strikers. Sunday’s match could come down to how well Liverpool’s center-backs can handle Kane’s prowess.
This could be a fantastic match. Both teams are entertaining to watch and it sees two world-class managers come head-to-head. I think Tottenham will edge this one, though, with Harry Kane providing the difference.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Tottenham -0.50 at 2.210
Everton v Arsenal
Poor Everton fans. Another loss in midweek – a 2-1 defeat at home to Lyon – makes it another four games without a win for Ronald Koeman. The 2-1 win against Bournemouth at the end of September looked to have kick-started the Toffees’ season, but things have continued to worsen. How long will the Everton board keep faith with Koeman?
For Arsenal, this represents a real chance to return to winning ways. Last weekend’s 2-1 loss to Watford will have angered the Frenchman, who had seen his side perform amicably since the defeat to Liverpool at the end of August.
If Arsenal can hit the ground running in this game, they have the ability to blow Everton out of the water. The Gunners have plenty of paces and that could cause a slow Everton defense problems.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Arsenal -0.75 at 2.408
