Liverpool didn’t particularly have an occasion to rejoice when they suffered a shambolic 4-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds, thus, will be hoping to seek a revenge on tomorrow evening against the same outfit in their reverse fixture at Anfield.
Although Nathaniel Clyne is close to returning to team training following his back surgery, the right-back is still weeks away to taste first-team football. Ragnar Klavan is likely to miss out with a thigh strain whereas despite being back in full training, Adam Lallana might not be risked this weekend against the North London heavyweights.
Spurs, on the other hand, have significant boost as Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, and Harry Winks – all three are likely to return from their injuries but the fans have to wait a little while to witness the new signing Lucas Moura who will miss the Anfield trip due to fitness concerns.
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Probable Lineups:
Subs: Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Danny Ings.
Subs: Michel Vorm, Toby Alderweireld, Serge Aurier, Fernando Llorente, Erik Lamela, Victor Wanyama, Moussa Sissoko.
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Last Meeting:
Their last Anfield meeting occurred almost a year back when a Sadio Mane brace in the first half sealed all three points for Liverpool.
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Key Players:
Although Mane is yet to rediscover his last season’s form, he, alongside Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino are set to test the visitors’ defensive resilience on repeated occasions.
Spurs, however, will mostly bank on hitman Harry Kane who is once again the front-runner to win the Premier League golden boot award with 21 league goals already in his name. The likes of Heung-min Son, Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen will be threats too and the Reds have to maintain their defensive composure against a very good attacking football side.
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Head-To-Head Stats:
Liverpool Win: 80
Spurs Win: 48
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Managers’ Speak:
“The gap is only two points. This is a six-point game. In the end, to fulfill our dreams at some point we have to overtake all of them. We cannot decide when or which (team). We have to be ready for achieving the biggest thing.” – Jurgen Klopp’
” I remember I won with Southampton there. Lovren scored and Southampton won 1-0. Of course, for every club and for the top six clubs it’s tough to play away from home. For all the clubs, not only Tottenham, always it’s so difficult to win away from home. I am focused on trying to prepare for the game and go there and try to win. That is not going to affect our performance or the result in the end.” – Mauricio Pochettino
