PREVIEW: Liverpool V Spurs

Liverpool welcome Spurs to Anfield on Sunday as they look to continue their winning streak on the back of a victory over Huddersfield. The Reds have had a couple of slip-ups recently, namely against West Brom in the FA Cup and losing to Swansea in the league but Klopp’s side usually performs well against the so-called bigger sides.

Injury news for this one means Liverpool are still unable to call upon Adam Lallana. For Tottenham, Lucas Moura who recently signed for the club is looking unlikely to start but manager Pochettino could welcome Alderweireld back into the fold.

The last time the two sides met was in October, the Reds fell to a heavy 4-1 defeat. To be perfectly honest it was one of the worst games I’ve seen us play in a long time. Mo Salah managed to find the back of the net but the home side recorded a Harry Kane brace, a Son goal and a Delle Alli effort all within an hour.

At Anfield, Tottenham don’t have a fantastic record, in the last five meetings between the two sides in the league at L4 Liverpool have won on four occasions and there has been one draw. In fact, to find a win for Spurs we have to go back to 2011.

This will be the 150th meeting between the two sides and it is set to be a game filled with goals in my opinion. Liverpool play far better against teams who play openly and attack, Spurs are bound to find the net themselves but they will leave enough gaps and make enough mistakes for the likes of Salah and Firmino to punish.

Jurgen Klopp appeared ready for action in the pre-game presser he was reflecting on the Spurs performance against United in the week “You don’t often keep United as far away from your goal as Spurs did in that game.” but the boss also noted that “We have a few nice options where we could make changes or not.”

Enjoy the match folks, wherever you are watching!
