Liverpool vs TottenhamAnfield7:45pm
This is arguably the game of the weekend, a game of huge significance for two related, yet unrelated reasons and you don’t want to blink. Antonio Conte knows what is at stake and so does Jurgen Klopp, where will this swing?
Liverpool are in the Champions League final for the third
time in four years, the hurts of 2018 evolved into joy the following season and
now they can take their pound of flesh from Real Madrid, the team that brought
them tears in 2018.
Tottenham wants to return to champions league football and
they will only be able to achieve this if they beat Arsenal to it. They
currently sit two points behind the Gunners, they can usurp Mikel Arteta’s side
with a win here, how easy will that be?
Quadruple is still a dream for Liverpool, they can win
everything there is to win and a win over Tottenham will be a bold step in that
direction. Manchester City only have one trophy to fight for this season, and
that is the premier league title, will Liverpool beat them to it?
Everyone at Arsenal would be rooting for Liverpool, everyone
at both ends of Manchester will be rooting for Tottenham as they don’t want
Liverpool to equal their league title hauls, it would be fun to see this one at
Liverpool can’t afford to rest players yet, there is a title
to win so expect Klopp to throw in his full strength, he also has a game in
midweek so he might rotate upfront but expect Mohammed Salah to start this one,
Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota could too but Firminho is out.
Spurs have everyone available except Sergio Reguilon, they
can throw everything at this game and earn something that will propel them to
success in the North London Derby against Arsenal on Wednesday, it’s a bumper
Liverpool have won four of the last five in the league
against Tottenham but the last fixture at the Tottenham Stadium ended in a 2-2
draw, a game that underlined Antonio Conte’s importance and style of play. This
would be fun to watch.
