Premier League [Preview]: Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur entertain Liverpool at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Spurs ended their Wembley hoodoo last weekend with a 1-0 triumph over Bournemouth, and this sees them just five points adrift of Manchester City in third place. Meanwhile, Liverpool could not make the most of their flurry of chances against Manchester United last weekend, and they were eventually held to a 0-0 scoreline. As a result, Jurgen Klopp’s side are positioned eighth in the standings with 13 points, just goal difference separating them from fifth-place Chelsea.

Previous meeting:

The last outing between the clubs was at Anfield with Liverpool bagging a convincing 2-0 triumph. Sadio Mane scored a brace in the space of two first-half minutes, and it eventually proved sufficient for the Merseyside giants. The Reds could have easily added more goals to their overall tally, but Hugo Lloris pulled off a couple of vital saves to keep the scores respectable.

Players to watch for:

Harry Kane – Tottenham Hotspur: The England international has been in stunning touch for the north London outfit this term with 11 goals in all competitions. Barring his August blues, the 24-year-old has revived his league form with six goals in eight outings. Kane has already scored three braces in the top-flight, and he will fancy his chances against a fragile-looking Reds backline. The marksman currently averages more than two shots on target per game.

Mohamed Salah – Liverpool: Likewise Kane, Salah has been a revelation for the Reds with seven goals in all competitions. The Egypt international notched two goals and an assist in the midweek Champions League triumph over Maribor, and the fans will hope that the attacker has found his shooting range. Salah has four goals in his maiden league campaign, but he could have quite easily topped the scoring charts with better finishing.

Prediction:

Tottenham look to have overcome the early stumble on their home patch, and they are likely to make things difficult for Liverpool, who normally opt for an aggressive approach. Goals for both sides, but Spurs to prevail.
