Betting Preview: Stoke v Tottenham

Today I’ll be doing a little betting preview ahead of our game against Spurs on Monday night in a very important game for our title challenging visitors.

Hughes’ men having lost only one of their last seven top-flight matches and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds just one of their last six. However, Liverpool have played two less games than Stoke this season.
