It proved a merry Christmas for both Liverpool and Tottenham and the two clubs now occupy the first two positions in the Premier League Table. Tottenham fans will have the irony of cheering on bitter London rivals Arsenal this weekend when Arsenal take on Liverpool at Anfield.
Meanwhile, the Tottenham team can confirm they’re genuine title challengers by beating Wolves, a team Liverpool beat 2-0 last week. We’ve free tips for Liverpool vs Arsenal and Tottenham vs Wolves, as well as a free tip for Southampton vs Manchester City.
Tottenham vs Wolves (Saturday 3.00)
Consistency has been something that’s been lacking for Wolves this season and a run of three straight wins in December has been followed by defeat to Liverpool and a draw against Fulham. Wolves did push Tottenham all the way earlier in the season at Molineaux, with Tottenham eventually winning 3-2, though the score-line didn’t do Tottenham’s dominance justice. Tottenham took a 3-0 lead in the 61st minute, and it was only two late penalties that gave Wolves a chance of getting something out of that game.
Since then, Tottenham have won seven of their subsequent eight Premier League games, including their last four home games. Tottenham are prone to the odds wobble though and Wolves may get amongst the goals here. However, Tottenham should still outscore them, so Tottenham to win and both teams to score could be the value-bet.

Liverpool vs Arsenal (Saturday 5.30)
The match at the Emirates this season was a hard-fought affair with Liverpool happy to not commit too many players forward to limit the chances the Gunners created. It was a plan that nearly worked with Liverpool grabbing the first goal just after an hour of play, only for Arsenal to score with eight minutes remaining. Since then, Liverpool have upped their game with eight successive Premier League victories, including six clean sheets.
Meantime, the wheels have come off Arsenal’s Premier League challenge a bit with a defeat at Southampton and a draw at Brighton. A recent 2-0 defeat to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup also suggests the Gunners are just below the top teams at present. So, Liverpool look most likely to keep things tight and try win the game 1-0 or 2-0.

Southampton vs Manchester City (Sunday 2.15)
There have been a few photos on social media this week of a Manchester City bus with no wheels on it, and Pep Guardiola’s men will have to shoot their critics down this week if they’re to keep their dream of winning back-to-back Premier League Titles alive. A few weeks ago, you would have said City were certainties to beat Southampton, but the fortunes of both sides have flipped over the Christmas period. City have lost to Crystal Palace and Leicester, whilst Southampton have beaten Arsenal and Huddersfield.
Admittedly, new Southampton manager Hassenhutl came back down to earth after defeat against West Ham last time but will have learned more about his players for that experience. A Southampton win may be asking too much, but anything around 5/1 for the draw looks worth a bet.
