What a way to end the day on Sunday with a potential top-four six-pointer on the cards at Liverpool’s noisy Anfield stadium!
Liverpool will host Tottenham on the back of a fine run of five games without a defeat.
The Kops will be making a late charge to finish in the top four, something they haven’t missed out on since Jurgen Klopp joined them in 2016.
Liverpool has won three games on the bounce, with the last coming in midweek against West Ham, and it was a comeback win after going one goal down.
Liverpool knows it’s not in their hands, but they have to do their part and hope United or Liverpool slip.
Tottenham halted a run of poor losses with a fine late show at home against Manchester United.
Ryan Mason took over from Christian Stellini, who was shown the exit door after a 6-1 drubbing at Newcastle last weekend, and his first game offered some promises.
Although the first half was not particularly impressive, Spurs rallied to a 2-2 draw in the second, thanks in large part to their dependable Harry Kane.
The striker weighed in with two assists for Pedro Porro and Heung Min Son.
Liverpool could have issues with Diogo Jota, but the return of Luis Dias will offer a replacement that is ready to go should the Portuguese be unavailable.
Darwin Nunez is another player who will be asking for opportunities upfront alongside Mohammed Salah and Cody Gakpo.
The midfield would be key, as both sides haven’t inspired confidence in that department recently.
Both sides are struggling in the middle of the park, and this is why they don’t control games.
How will they lineup for this game?
Liverpool’s inverted midfield triangle could well return with Henderson, Fabinho, and Tiago Alcantara, but how will Piere Emile Hoijberg and Oliver Skipp respond to them?
The game would offer end-to-end stuff, and we would love to see it.
Will Richarlison ever score for Tottenham in the league?
This question would be begging for answers when he files out against Liverpool, but with Son back among the goals, he will be the second name on the list after Kane.
