Spurs vs Liverpool – Sunday, 5.30pm

WOULDN’T it be so Spurs to go and win this one?

Mourinho‘s side’s malaise continued in their cup draw with Middlesbrough and the Special One won’t be impressed that his side have to contend with a replay.

The loss of Harry Kane until March is also set to take its toll.

England and Spurs’ leading marksman, Kane has torn his hamstring and Mourinho may dip into the perils of the January transfer market for a short-term replacement.

In the meantime, Spurs have the small task of welcoming the seemingly unstoppable Liverpool juggernaut to North London.

Klopp’s world champions can do no wrong – even their kids are good, seeing off a full-strength and embarrassed Everton in the FA Cup.

So what of Spurs’ chances of taking away Liverpool’s unbeaten tag?

Well, it’s not often you see one of the Big Six in the Premier League priced up at a whopping 7/2 on home soil.

That’s massive for a Spurs side who will spit, snarl and snap at the champions elect in what will be a hostile welcome for the men from Merseyside.

Tottenham’s issue hasn’t been raising their game for the big sides, it’s been consistent in putting together unbeaten runs.

The defeat here to Chelsea showed that their home isn’t the fortress that is should be – and that was WITH a then fully-fit Kane.

We’d recommend a speculative play on the double chance – that’s Spurs win or a draw – simply because the price is too good to turn down at 11/10.

Liverpool’s only blot in a near-perfect season was a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford and we’re certainly not expecting them to get beaten.

But usually a double chance play for a top six side in the Premier League is around 1/10, so take those odds while you can and don your Spurs scarf.

Liverpool were comfortable winners on the road here last season – albeit at Wembley – and are unbeaten on the road stretching back to May if you discount the kids being beaten at Villa in the Carabao Cup.

But in three of the last five meetings in the capital there’s been three goals or less – and that’s worth another risky play at 5/4. Cue 4-4.

Sadio Mane has two in his last two and looks the man to be on anytime at the same lofty price.
