Chris Sutton Drops Bold Prediction For Liverpool vs Tottenham

Ex-Celtic star and BBC pundit Chris Sutton has backed Tottenham Hotspur to beat Liverpool in their upcoming Premier League meeting. Going against the trend, Sutton has predicted Spurs will secure a 3-2 win over the Reds at Anfield Stadium.

They are currently seven points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa in the top-four race, and the dream of playing in the UEFA Champions League is gradually slipping away.

He added:

I thought Tottenham’s tactics would suit Arsenal last week and allow them to hit them on the counter-attack, and the same applies here.

When Liverpool turn the ball over, they are pretty devastating on the…
