“Liverpool have got off to a great start, winning every game and playing good football. The team looks very balanced and it’s going to be very tough for Tottenham, despite home advantage.”

He went on to add:

“I expect both teams to score as they usually do in this fixture, but I’ll have to edge towards Liverpool to win it.”
