Spurs Lead More Than They Win
A defeat for either team would be a blow to any title ambitions, but perhaps neither would hate a point.
Thursday night is another big one in this most unpredictable of title races as 5th play 6th. BetVictor offer a chunky 15/1 on Half-time: Spurs - Full-time: Draw and that looks like a feasible narrative.
Tottenham have drawn six league games this season, and if you take out the goalless encounter with Chelsea, in each of the other 5 they led at the break only to surrender that advantage by the end.
No team has led for more minutes than Mourinho’s men (850) in 2020-21, and although they are yet to lose having been in front, points have been given away time and again.
Liverpool showed signs of life in the FA Cup last weekend and with a record of 1 defeat in 18 against these opponents, a defeat looks unlikely even if they concede first.
