There is no doubt what the headliner fixture is this weekend in the Premier League- Liverpool FC at Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds come in to Wembley Stadium in 8th place, and just a mere +1 in goal differential on the season. They have achieved 13 points from their first eight matches, four less than Tottenham’s 17, which is enough to put them third in the current table.

While Tottenham are in better position, and the favorites in this match, they still have not beaten the Anfield outfit since 2012.

Yes, five years is a long time for the north London outfit, especially considering how well they have performed against the rest of the top league’s big six since then. Also, LFC come in with momentum and confidence, having just made club history in midweek against Maribor in the UEFA Champions League.

Let’s break down this week’s headliner fixture.

Kickoff: Sunday, 4pm local

Run of Form:

Tottenham- W, W, W, W, W, D

Liverpool- L, W, D, D, D, W

Tottenham transfer rumors

After Liverpool’s drubbing of Maribor on Tuesday, there has been a clear trend, as per Oddschecker, of bettors willing to back them over Tottenham for this weekend’s Super Sunday clash.

Tottenham remain clear favorites with the bookies, and the best price you can find them at to win at time of writing is 5/4, while Liverpool are an attractive best of 27/10.

This has seemed to encourage punters, and after Tuesday’s round of Champions League games, 55.29% have favored a Liverpool win. Spurs have been the least backed of the three results, with just 16.27% of bets on a home team win despite their impressive showing against Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Spurs’ Wembley woes combined with an exhausting defensive effort against Madrid have likely influenced the outcome of this split as well as Liverpool’s 7-0 Maribor win, and the Reds look set to finish the week strong by all accounts.

Philippe Coutinho has been priced at a tempting 8/1 to be first goalscorer, and with punters flocking to back a Liverpool win it is unsurprising to see him as the most backed in this market ahead of Sunday’s encounter.

Prediction: Tottenham 2, Liverpool 1
