our main tip:
Under 1.5 1st Half goals

FC Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur 16.12.2020

In a bizarre twist of tales at the weekend, both of these teams blew the chance to either seize control at the top of the table after they both drew 1-1  against less favoured opposition meaning the status quo at the top of the table is maintained coming into this critical clash with both teams tied on 25 points after 12 games, and Tottenham maintaining the top spot thanks to a better goal difference. 

Liverpool’s performances at Anfield has been their bread and butter, particularly in the last 3 seasons. En route to their title last season, they went unbeaten at home, winning 17 and drawing two of their 19 home league games which basically created the buffer that propelled that to the title. They’ve picked up from where they left, winning all 6 of home league games to start the season. 

Having said that, they will be hosting a Tottenham side that has shown all the attributes we have come to associate with Jose Mourinho’s title-winning teams. They are well organised defensively and very clinical in attack. 

We are anticipating a closely contested battle here with very thin margins for error. The first half is particularly likely to be tight and with few opportunities as neither team will be willing to cede too much ground. We, therefore, fancy Under 1.5 First Half goals as our main shout for this game
