Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to capitalise on their emphatic win over Red Star Belgrade this Sunday as they visit table-topping Liverpool in the Premier League. The 5-0 win in the Champions League over Serbian champions Red Star Belgrade was a welcome performance for Spurs and has alleviated a tiny bit of pressure on boss Mauricio Pochettino who recently revealed he was, in fact, feeling a little bit of pressure as Spurs boss.

It’s been a frustratingly inconsistent start to the season for Tottenham Hotspur, having played well at Manchester City and thumping Crystal Palace they’ve suffered heavy defeats against Brighton and Bayern Munich as Spurs have struggled to rediscover the form they showed towards the latter stages of the previous season. The last time Spurs played in the Premier League was against bottom of the table Watford where they were lucky to come away with a point as VAR to be proved to be Spurs’ get out of jail card once again – saving their blushes.

Liverpool have started the season in sublime fashion, losing only once to Napoli in the Champions League. The current Champions League Champions have a near-perfect record in the Premier League winning all their games apart from their last match away to Manchester United at Old Trafford which they drew. Liverpool’s last game was also in the Champions League against Genk where they ran out 4-1 winners in a comfortable routine Liverpool victory. It’s going to be a hell of a tough task for Spurs at Anfield which has become somewhat of a fortress the past few seasons. Tottenham haven’t won away from home this season and Liverpool have won eight out of nine, conceding just seven times.

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur is a 16:30 kick-off on Sunday 27th October.

Team News

Giovani Lo Celso’s cameo appearance on Tuesday night means he’s in contention to start against Liverpool as he returns to full fitness following the injury he picked up on international duty with Argentina a couple of months ago. Hugo Lloris will miss the game after sustaining a horrific injury against Brighton. Ryan Sessegnon is still struggling for fitness so he won’t play either.

Liverpool have had an injury boost as Trent Alexander Arnold and Joel Matip look fit to play on Sunday despite missing their Champions League game midweek.

Last Time They Met

We all know the last time that Liverpool played Tottenham Hotspur. The heartbreaking Champions League final in Madrid. Spurs were so close yet so far as Liverpool won their 6th Champions League title thanks to an early goal from Mo Salah and a sinking Divock Origi. Some say that Spurs still haven’t managed to get over that final and is a reason for their poor start to the season. Spurs’ record v Liverpool stands at 14 wins, 15 draws and 25 losses.

Juan Foyth after Red Star win

“The lads did a fantastic job, we controlled the game and we deserved the win so it was a good game to have my first minutes of the season. Of course, it helped me a lot playing for Argentina too. I’m very grateful for the chance as it’s always nice to play – and for your country as well, it’s something special.

“Now we hope to continue building results (with the Club). I think the team is the same as last week, it’s just games. We can improve all the things we need to because we have a lot of faith in this group. We are all going to continue to give everything.”

How We See It

Unfortunately, we can’t look past a Liverpool win here. We’re saying 3-0 Liverpool.
