Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

The two sides are set to face each other in the Premier League on Saturday (May 7) and ahead of the clash, the pundit has shared his thoughts on Sportskeeda.

“I think the way Liverpool play suits Tottenham as Antonio Conte wants teams to come at them. That said, they struggle stylistically against teams that sit back, so this is a really tricky test for Liverpool.


“Spurs have done the double over Manchester City in the Premier League this season. They could produce another telling moment in the title race by upsetting the Reds at Anfield, but I think Liverpool will just edge this one.


“It wouldn’t shock me to see Spurs get a positive result because of the way they play and their position in the Premier League top-four race.


“However, my money is on Liverpool as things stand. Jurgen Klopp’s side were atrocious in the first-half against Villarreal and if that happens against Spurs, they are out of the Premier League title race.”


“Speaking of Liverpool’s attacking unit, the addition of Luis Diaz has sort of transformed them. He is ahead of Diogo Jota at the moment. Although they are two very different footballers, their flexibility allows the Reds to lineup in many different ways based on the opposition.


“With Sadio Mane also in the mix, you only know that Mohamed Salah is going to play as a right winger as the rest of them could pretty much play anywhere!”
