Liverpool host Tottenham at Anfield Stadium on Sunday 16:30 GTM
Liverpool currently sit 3rd in the Premier League, three points adrift of Manchester United in 2nd but only above 5th placed Tottenham by two points. Arsenal are also in the running, so it could be a battle to qualify for the Champions League next season. So far this year they have beat Burnley and Everton, breaking the record of Manchester City’s unbeaten Premier League season in a thrilling 4-3 match at Anfield. They then quickly reverted to the other end of the scale, losing away to Swansea and then getting knocked out of the FA Cup by West Brom before beating Huddersfield on Tuesday to end a rather turbulent January. Liverpool have lost one of their last 23 home Premier League games against Spurs (W15 D7).
Tottenham are in high spirits as well. The visitors put on an excellent display at Wembley in midweek to beat Manchester United 2-0, with Christian Eriksen scoring the 3rd fastest goal in Premier League history to start the game off quickly. The 2-0 scoreline rather flattered Manchester United, and it could well have been a bigger margin of victory. Spurs have won seven points from their last nine available on the road in the Premier League wining 2 and drawing the other.
