Jamie O’Hara predicts Tottenham clash against Liverpool

Jamie O’Hara has told TalkSPORT (Thursday, 8.31am) that he believes Tottenham Hotspur will earn three points against Liverpool on Thursday evening, as Jose Mourinho’s side welcome Jurgen Klopp’s struggling Liverpool to North London.

Liverpool come into the match in a dismal run of form that has seen Klopp’s men slip into fifth position. Tottenham are in sixth, but have a game in hand over Klopp’s men – with only a point the difference between the two sides at this halfway stage.

Klopp’s men have failed to win in their last five Premier League games – scoring just one goal in those outings. The Reds have only won once in their last seven in all competitions – beating Villa’s youngsters, but also losing to Man United in the FA Cup.

Speaking ahead of Thursday night’s big clash, ex-Tottenham midfielder O’Hara has backed his old side to compound the current misery on Klopp’s Liverpool and earn all three points – a win that would take Spurs back into the top four.

In response to Ally McCoist predicting a 1-1 draw, O’Hara said: “Sitting on the fence as normal. I’ll go for Spurs win, 2-1.”

TBR’s view – How can Spurs beat Liverpool?

The crucial areas of the match are as you would expect. Liverpool are likely to dominate possession once again, but Tottenham will be confident that Liverpool’s out-of-form attackers may struggle more than last time to make the breakthrough.

In the previous fixture at Anfield, Spurs had numerous chances to score. They hit the post, Steven Bergwijn had a glorious chance and Harry Kane should have scored a header. They will be confident that they can win the match.

If Son Heung-min and Harry Kane can get the best of Liverpool’s patched-up performance, Spurs will win.
