Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 4th February 2018

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

It is safe to say Liverpool have been playing like Liverpool should since the turn of the New Year.

They started with three consecutive wins against Burnley, Everton, and Manchester City only to follow that momentous win by losing at Swansea and then at home to West Brom.

However, they did win their last league game at Huddersfield to end a turbulent month in grand style and up to 3rd in the league table.

They no longer have any domestic Cup competition to distract them and Jurgen Klopp will be looking to get far in the Champions League and finish inside the top four.

They come into this game 3rd, just 3 points behind Manchester United who are 2nd and 2 more than Tottenham who are 5th.

Tottenham come into this game in buoyant mood after they secured an unlikely 2-0 home win over Manchester United in their last game.

That game saw Christian Eriksen score the 3rd fastest goal in the EPL history to rattle the Red Devils.

That win was a welcome boost after a rather poor showing in their previous game against Newport in the FA Cup.

They will be looking for a win when they visit Anfield here as they are currently unbeaten in their last 9 competitive games.

Tottenham have kept only 2 clean sheets in their 8 away games and coming up against a strong Liverpool team, they will be hoping to keep the number of goals the host can score to a minimum.
