Scousers to riot in north London?
Tottenham v Liverpool | Sunday 13:30 - live on Sky Sports 1
Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season came undone at the Britannia Stadium last weekend and Kenny Dalglish's men face a tough examination of their top four credentials, as they take on fellow Champions League hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
The Liverpool manager was so incensed by the refereeing performance of Mark Clattenberg against Stoke City that he met refs' chief Mike Riley on Monday morning to discuss a number of issues he felt didn't go his way.
Harry Redknapp on the other hand, had absolutely no complaints after his team returned from Wolves with their first victory of the season and a debut day goal for new loan signing Emmanuel Adebayor (6/1 first scorer, 7/4 anytime).
The Togolese striker's goal meant that he has now scored on his debut for Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham. He and Liverpool's Luis Suarez are the focus of the William Hill Match Winner offer for this game. Can both players score at a fantastic enhanced price of 10/1?
Recent history between these two teams in north London greatly favours the home team and Tottenham are priced at 13/8 in the match betting market. Spurs have won the last three matches between the sides at White Hart by the same scoreline, 2-1, and in 19 Premier League meetings at White Hart Lane, Tottenham have won nine times and Liverpool five, with five draws. Six of those nine victories have been by a 2-1 scoreline. A repeat of this seemingly regular scoreline can be backed at 17/2.
The Merseysiders are 17/10 to win in the capital, just as they did against Tottenham's rivals Arsenal in the second week of the season. A repeat of that 2-0 scoreline can be backed at 14s.
Spurs were involved in European action on Thursday, but it was a youthful squad that travelled to Greece to tackle PAOK Salonika so the eleven that takes to the pitch on Sunday afternoon should not be fatigued in the slightest. Liverpool have enjoyed a free week after failing to secure European qualification last year and will be going all out in their quest for three points.
First Goalscorer: Emmanuel Adebayor @ 6/1
Double Result: Tottenham/Liverpool @28/1
