Michael Owen has predicted Liverpool to take all three points from their upcoming clash against Tottenham.

The retired attacker shared that he thought Saturday’s game against Mauricio Pochettino’s side would be a real test of the Reds’ title credentials.

Owen revealed that Jurgen Klopp’s side are almost guaranteed to score due to their attacking options and backed them to heap more misery on Spurs who suffered a shock defeat to Watford ahead of the international break.

“This is a real test of Liverpool’s title credentials and a win at Wembley will go a long way to proving their doubters wrong,” wrote Owen in his blog for BetVictor.

“With a star-studded side full of attacking options the Reds are almost always guaranteed to score and will look to heap more misery on the hosts who were beaten at Watford last time out.

“Dele Alli hopes to be fit for the Londoners after missing England’s game with Switzerland and although Harry Kane was quiet against Spain he is still the go to man for his club.

“Whether Spurs can stop a rampaging Liverpool forward line looks unlikely, however, and five wins on the bounce for Jurgen Klopp’s side beckons.”

OPINION

Owen appears to be very confident that Spurs won’t be able to contain the Reds’ attack as it’s currently in tip-top form. The former Liverpool forward seems to put Spurs’ hopes firmly on the shoulders of Kane despite the forward not excelling for England in his recent display against Spain. This seems a wise move as while the Spurs forward may not look like he is firing on all cylinders currently, after his goalscoring antics in recent campaigns it would be foolish to doubt him scoring in any game. However it does seem likely that the Reds will be able to achieve victory when they travel to Wembley to face Spurs on Saturday just because of their opponent’s recent outing against Watford. Pochettino’s team had several flaws highlighted by the Hornets and Klopp will no doubt have informed his team of the best way to expose these flaws in order to make it five wins out of five.
