Three rotations Klopp has to make to beat Tottenham

Share

So, how will Spurs line-up this weekend?

Spurs have already earned a 1-1 draw at European champions Real Madrid in the Champions League this season.

An overwhelming 2-0 triumph over Manchester United on Wednesday underlined Spurs' arrival to frame and a win at Anfield would propel them of their hosts in the table.

Liverpool, you imagine, will be desperate to avenge that 4-1 defeat earlier in the season and have a fine home record against Tottenham: the last 23 meetings at Anfield have yielded 15 wins and just one defeat.

Murohy says that Pochettino should urge caution and advise his team to sit deep, or risk getting cut apart from Liverpool's attack - especially Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Further, the last time Liverpool had 50 points after 25 games in the Premier League was during the 2013-14 season. When he is not able to score from open play, he demands spot kicks and converts them. Since Pochettino joined Tottenham in 2014, their record away against the rest of the Big Six is played 18, won 1, drawn 6, lost 11.

A few weeks ago, Spurs appeared to have left themselves a mountain to climb to seal Champions League qualification but after Wednesday's impressive win over Man United, they are right back in contention.

Tottenham will look to pile on the pressure from the get-go, with Pochettino directing his players to press high up the field in order to force Liverpool's defenders into making mistakes. Against Tottenham, not only does he have a chance to redeem himself for playing a key role in their loss to Swansea but also to justify his arrival and price tag as well.

Seven of Liverpool's last eight games have ended with more than 2.5 goals. Add 7 assists to his goals tally and his total contribution comes to 32 goals in 29 appearances.

We strangely, tip a narrow win for Liverpool on Sunday. Harry Kane and his fellow attackers ran riot against the Reds that day, which will raise hopes that they can produce their second memorable victory in the space of five days here. But he is the one who brings a tremendous creative spark to this Spurs side. This means that Eriksen's build-up play could have contributed nearly 11 goals for Spurs this season.

Whether it is relevant that Man City's last win at Anfield in 2003 is debatable, since City has become such a well-heeled club in the years since. If one is going chalk with a City pick, then Raheem Sterling with his knack for late-game tallies is worth a side bet in goal scorer props.

"Before the game it makes it interesting".

Liverpool's Adam Lallana is a doubt to face Tottenham, with manager Jurgen Klopp not willing to risk aggravating a recent thigh injury.
