  • Tottenham v Liverpool preview and betting tips

    ibfm23 on 22 Aug at 05:09

    The result is what it is. In all fairness Liverpool cannot be criticized for lack of effort and the 26 goal attempts (against Burnley's 3) and the 80% possession attest to this. On another day the Reds would have won 3, 4 or 5 - 2. That said, as noted in my previous blogs the poor defensive stability is a problem which has been overlooked for too long to the extent that it has become ingrained within the club's culture. The defeat is a blessing in disguise as it forces Klopp to face the issue. Liverpool need a solid centre back, a proper left back and a well-tested anchor. Without these additions Reds fans should brace themselves for yet another emotional roller-coaster ride. Burton v Liverpool If you have followed my ante-post tip for Liverpool to win either the League Cup or…
