All you need to know ahead of Spurs vs Liverpool

All you need to know ahead of Spurs vs Liverpool

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the worldwide break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

Danny Higginbotham believes that Saturday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley will suit Liverpool FC.

"How should that work?"

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said, "Quarter-finals of the Champions League, let City win".

"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works".




He is now back in the Spurs squad and could be utilised from the start against Liverpool, although given his hectic schedule in recent times, and the form of Lucas Moura, the Spurs boss could settle for using him from the bench. After a big win over Manchester United, Tottenham's latest result was a 2-1 loss to Watford. His league leaders could put a real marker down if they can bag three points against Spurs. Liverpool, the unluckiest team in the league last season in ESPN's Luck Index , escaped but a draw would have been harsh as they dominated and looked more unsafe from the outset.

Next up is that meeting against PSG in the Champions League, where the trio will have to be at their best to outscore Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Liverpool spent heavily in the summer, bringing in four new faces for almost £180 million, but Tottenham failed to sign a single player. "You bring your kids in the Champions League?"

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he could make some changes to his line-up, having kept pretty much the same team all season, especially with a tough run of fixtures ahead.

Moussa Sissoko (hamstring) and Juan Foyth (thigh) are both back in training but this game has come too soon for them. They are different in the way that they play and how they act on the pitch.
