Premier League matches continue this weekend, and Gameweek 7 will see Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur face off in what could be an important result for the top 6 or even top 4 spots in the league. Today we’ll go over the form of both teams, bring you the previous head-to-head records, and provide our prediction for the match.
Liverpool FC are on a hot streak of 3-1 victories, the most recent being their win last night against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup. Another one was in the Europa League against Linz ASK, and then more 3-1 wins against Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have been conceding early but going on to outscore their opponents and win comfortably in the end. They’ll be looking to give up the habit of letting in early goals and needing to make a comeback continually.
Tottenham Hotspurs have been on a solid run in recent times. Their latest result was a 2-2 draw with Arsenal and their last defeat against Fulham on penalties in the Carabao Cup back in August. The Spurs seem to have improved massively in defensive terms under Ange Postecoglou and have already picked up a 2-0 win over Manchester United. The Spurs will be happy with their performances and results after concerns arose since the departure of their star man, Harry Kane.

Ones to watch
Both Liverpool and Tottenham have had new-look teams since the transfer window development, and some of those transfers are already proving their worth.
James Maddison has been the man involved in most of Tottenham’s play since signing from Leicester City. The midfielder claimed his place in Postecoglou’s side straight away, and his driving play could heavily influence the game. Spurs also have Yves Bissouma putting in underappreciated performances in midfield.
Liverpool also made alterations to their midfield, with the likes of Dominik Szoboszlai, Ryan Gravenberch, and Wataru Endo. The most impactful of those so far is Szoboszlai, providing a similar drive and power from the midfield as Maddison, but with a better work rate. The midfield man from Hungary also scored a rocket of a goal against Leicester City so confidence will be high.
The match could be decided in key midfield battles.
The match kicks off at 5:30 (UK time) on Saturday, the 30th of September. It takes place at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in London.
It should be an entertaining match to watch this weekend, with both teams high on confidence and belief. Viewers will hope it is that kind of “all-in” match instead of a highly tactical battle where the teams are too cautious.
