Tottenham will host Liverpool in the season opener at White Hart Lane. Both teams are prepared to battle out for honors in this Sunday’s televised game in London. Hopes have never been higher of winning the Premiership with the Reds from Merseyside while Spurs are looking to compete for a top 4 spot finish in the league. Both teams are set to do well this season and a victory to either team could see a promising season ahead of them.
Tottenham look likely to start fresh with Harry Redknapp in reign. Last season was a major disappointment as they finish mid tables only to have been at the foot of the table in the first half the season. They redeemed some pride in becoming the winner of the League Cup 2008/09. The result of last season has prompted Redknapp to be active in the transfer market this summer. He brought in former Liverpool player Peter Crouch, defender Sebastien Bassong from Newcastle and Kyle Naughton into the squad. It will be interesting to see who Redknapp will select for his starting partnership upfront as Keane, Defoe and Crouch are all fit to play. Jonathan Woodgate will not feature against Liverpool as he went through surgery on his groin.
Liverpool has gone 20 years without a league title and last season they came closer as they were only 4 points away from Manchester United. Liverpool are expected to mount a serious challenge for the Premiership title and Rafa Benitez has been very busy over the summer seeing major signing of England International defender Glen Johnson and Roma’s midfielder Alberto Aquilani. Liverpool had to say goodbye to both Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Aberaloa to Real Madrid. Liverpool might be without their captain, Steven Gerrard, as he pulled out of the England friendly against Holland and Jamie Carragher is also doubtful to travel to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham and Liverpool have in recent years played some exciting football at White Hart Lane. As this is their first official match, it usually ends up as a stalemate. However, Spurs have issues with the defense and Torres will take notice of this. So look at Betsson as they are offering 2.12 for a Liverpool win.
