Luis Suarez to fire Liverpool to second in the Premier League at WHL?
Liverpool travel to North London and White Hart Lane for this Spurs v Liverpool match leading their hosts by three points and two places in the Premier League table. Victory for the home team this afternoon will move Spurs ahead of Newcastle into sixth place but behind the visitors due to Liverpool having a much better goal difference, while a win for the team from the red side of Merseyside will see them move into second place in the league standings.
Liverpool certainly have the ability to outscore their hosts today as they have found the net on 34 occasions in their 15 Premier League matches this season, with Luis Suarez having 15 of those in the ten matches he has played following his suspension, while Tottenham have only found the net on 15 occasions in total all season long in their domestic campaign. Will the man who is likely to terrorise the English defence at the World Cup next summer be the difference between these two sides today?
GR88.com do not believe so as they favour the home win for the goal shy North Londoners and their Spurs v Liverpool match odds are as follows.

The hosts at White Hart Lane this afternoon have looked impressive against some weaker sides in their Europa League group as they claimed six wins in six matches to ensure top spot and a more favourable draw for the last 32 stage. However, they have not been so ruthless and efficient in the Premier League as they have managed to win just two of their last six matches, with both of these coming as 2-1 away wins at the bottom two sides in the table. While the six points were important Spurs will need to be much better against a side looking to go second than coming from behind against Sunderland and Fulham if they are to win today. They have only beaten Hull City in five at home and have scored just four goals in these five matches, so will they be able to improve and see off the threat of Suarez?
Liverpool have not looked great on the road this season as they have failed to win any of their last four away games and have only secured all three points against Aston Villa and Sunderland away from Anfield so far. However, in Luis Suarez have a goal scorer that has found the net on 15 occasions this season, including three braces as well as a hat-trick against West Brom and four against Norwich, and when you have one player with as many goals as your opponents have all season you have to believe that you stand a great chance at winning your match against them, despite having a poor away record leading up to the game.
I certainly feel that Liverpool deserve to be closer to Spurs in the outright market for this match today and that Suarez will be the difference between the two sides. However, Liverpool do not perform well in this section of North London as they have been beaten in each of their last six matches at White Hart Lane since May 2008. Like I have already stated, Suarez and his prolific goal scoring record this season will be the one thing that separates these two sides and as a result of this I cannot see anything but a Suarez led victory for the visitors today.
