Premier League betting preview: Liverpool v Tottenham
Liverpool host Tottenham tonight in Monday’s sole Premier League fixture.
A win for the Reds would see them leapfrog Arsenal into sixth place, while a Spurs success would cut the gap between themselves and second-placed Manchester United to three points.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is available for selection for the first time since Boxing Day following suspension, while midfielder Steven Gerrard is also in the squad having been rested for the recent victory over Wolves.
Tottenham strikers Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor are both injury doubts, meaning new loan signing Louis Saha could make his debut for the club. William Gallas and Tom Huddlestone are also unavailable, while midfielders Rafael van der Vaart and Aaron Lennon could miss out through injury.
Bet365 make Liverpool 21/20 favourites for the match, with Spurs offered at 14/5. The draw is priced at 12/5.
Suarez is 9/2 favourite to score the first goal, followed by Liverpool teammate Craig Bellamy at 11/2. Spurs injury doubts Defoe and Adebayor come next in the betting at 13/2, with the same price also offered on Gerrard. Andy Carroll is priced at 15/2.
