Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Anfield when Liverpool and Tottenham face each other in the EFL Cup last 16. The Reds recorded a very important 2-1 win over WBA at the weekend, with Philippe Coutinho and Saido Mane scoring for Jurgen Klopp’s troops. Liverpool made it to the EFL Cup final last season, but Manchester City eventually won the title. The Reds are eager to regain the trophy and we are positive the hosts will take Tuesday’s football match very seriously. Tottenham Hotspur played out a goalless draw with Bournemouth at the weekend and key attacker Harry Kane was again sorely missed. Both Jurgen Klopp and Mauro Pochettino are unlikely to field the best possible sides in Tuesday’s EFL Cup clash, but regardless of which players will start the match, we predict that over 2.5 goals will be scored in the Anfield showdown. It has to be noted, though, that the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the Premier League earlier this season.
