Two of the leading heavyweight contenders for the Premier League’s vacant ‘top-four belt’ go toe-to- toe at White Hart Lane in front of the cameras, and stats-lovers should be pointed the way of a dabble on both Tottenham and Liverpool finding the net.
Both teams to score is available at 8/13 with Ladbrokes, and although it’s not a humdinger of a price, it looks like firm ground on which to start in this clash.
Firstly, this punt would have landed in no fewer than the last seven Premier League games combined between the clubs – in Spurs’ last three and the Reds’ last four top-flight outings.
Liverpool’s Premier League goal-scoring prowess is only bettered by divisional pace-setters in the field, Manchester City, which includes Brendan Rodgers’ side notching 17 from their last five games.
However, the Merseysider’s vulnerability to defensive concession has been a constant bugbear for the Northern Irishman also, where Liverpool’s only clean sheet in their last dozen league outings arrived at home to Fulham.
Martin Skrtel has certainly not helped this stat, by taking his role of replacing Jamie Carragher so seriously, that the Slovakian has begun scoring oggies at a rate nearly as prolific as the legendary scouser’s was in his time at Anfield.
Meanwhile, Tottenham have dumped their Etihad dunces’ hats in favour of a return to a more fluent-looking outfit, who have now hit two goals per game in their last four matches in all competitions since that annihilation.
Just to round this double-net-finding theory off; this fixture produced eight goals across the two meetings last season, with the two sides scoring on each occasion also.
