This is going to hurt me. I do not think I have put up a bet against my own side before but for the life of me I cannot get my head around the fact that Tottenham are odds against to beat my team tomorrow.
I have to bet with facts. Facts are Liverpool have more injury problems coming though the door now than the Liverpool Royal A&E department. Klopp has less to work with than Rodgers did before they gave him the boot 2 weeks ago and our new coach has had just 3 days with the squad to show them his way of doing things because of the Internationals.
Tottenham are unbeaten at home so far this season. In the league tables based on home form only they sit 3rd being the 2 Manchester clubs.
On their away form to date Liverpool sit 14th in a league composed solely on away form.
Since losing to Utd on the opening day of the season Spurs are unbeaten now in 7 consecutive league games and their last 3 home games have seen them beat City 4-1, Palace 1-0 and draw 0-0 with Everton.
Those last two wins have come against teams currently in the top 4 in the league.
I can honestly not see anything but a home win tomorrow but I hope I’m wrong.
