For this weekend’s match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, Gary Neville has offered his prediction.
According to Neville, who just spoke on The Overlap, the match will conclude in a tie.
Spurs and Liverpool have had outstanding beginnings to the current campaign, and both teams are still winless in the Premier League.
The Reds are presently in second place under Jurgen Klopp despite just losing at Stamford Bridge on the first day of the season.
Ange Postecoglou, the new Tottenham manager, is off to a great start in North London as he led his team to a 2-2 tie on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
The matchup on Saturday is expected to be interesting as both teams approach the contest in excellent shape.
Gary Neville says that both sides will have to be satisfied with a point because he is unable to decide between the two.
Neville predicts result of Tottenham vs. Liverpool
Neville was asked to predict the outcome of Saturday’s match in North London when speaking on The Overlap.
The legendary Manchester United player said, “I say 1-1.”
Since both Spurs and Liverpool have scored 15 goals in the Premier League, there isn’t much to choose between the teams at this point in the season.
With only five goals allowed as opposed to Tottenham’s seven, Klopp’s team has a marginally better defensive record.
Given that Spurs have previously played Manchester United and Arsenal, one could claim that they have already played more difficult opponents.
But for the past few years, Tottenham has failed to defeat Liverpool, and their last league victory over them came in October 2017.
It’s obvious that Postecoglou will want to break their terrible track record against the Reds, thus Saturday’s encounter could be very exciting.
‘World beater’: Journalist says Tottenham’s players now all call 21-year-old sensational youngster ‘Starboy’
The first-team members of Tottenham Hotspur have all taken to calling rookie midfielder Pape Matar Sarr “Starboy” in practice.
On the Gold & Guest Podcast, journalist Alasdair Gold discussed the Senegalese international.
A big fuss would be made if a 21-year-old rookie made an impression at any other Premier League club.
However, because of the excitement surrounding the entire Spurs team at the moment, Pape Matar Sarr’s performances have received less attention.
Prior to Ange Postecoglou joining Tottenham, the midfielder had only made 14 appearances for the club.
Despite denying him the chance to go on loan, Antonio Conte utilized him extremely rarely last season.
Ange Postecoglou, who eventually arrived, was determined to give everyone member of the team a chance to shine.
Sarr seized the opportunity and has started all but one of the team’s league contests this year.
Naturally, his Spurs teammates have begun to be impressed by his efforts.
And now, Sarr is referred to as “Starboy” by the Tottenham team.
He appears to be the ideal midfield partner for James Maddison and Yves Bissouma, and he has a bright career ahead of him.
Tottenham squad now calling Sarr Starboy
Gold praised the 21-year-old’s performance against AC Milan, saying: “Pape Matar Sarr was fantastic. Antonio Conte said, “Well, thank you for that. Go over there and stand,” and he did exactly that.
While [Ange] Postecoglou is no longer among us, this young man is going to be a world-beater.
“Like I said, the players at the club refer to him as ‘Starboy’ because they think he will develop into a phenomenal young player.
“I’m very happy with the direction Postecoglou is taking this team in.”
Sarr performed admirably despite losing the ball a few occasions against Arsenal.
With their propensity to switch positions throughout a game, midfielders Martin Odegaard and Fabio Vieira presented him with a challenging assignment.
Given that Bukayo Saka, a Starboy for Arsenal, scored and assisted on both goals, Sarr’s performance for Tottenham was impressive for entirely different reasons.
Under Postecoglou, he has appeared unconcerned while coming up so swiftly, but he is aware that when Rodrigo Bentancur returns from injury, his position could soon be in jeopardy.
