We bring you the latest form and team news from Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur:
Liverpool Form and Team News
Klopp’s side are having a historic season, by their large standards, and have already claimed one trophy, qualified for two finals, and are one point behind Manchester City in the race for the EPL crown. The Reds, however, needed a strong second-half showing to go past Villarreal after falling two goals behind in the first half.
Playing at Anfield this season, they have won 14 matches and drawn thrice, keeping twelve clean sheets. Liverpool also have an excellent home record against Spurs, winning seven and drawing three of their last ten meetings. Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz have been particularly outstanding recently, chipping in with goals and performances that have lifted Jürgen Klopp’s team.
Roberto Firmino remains Liverpool’s only absentee with a foot injury that rules him out of the Tottenham match.
Tottenham Form and Team News
Antonio Conte and his charges have set their eyes on a Champions League berth ahead of next season, and a strong showing against Leicester put them back on track after dropping points against Brighton and Brentford. A win at Anfield will set up the perfect showdown against Arsenal next week, which the visitors will relish.
Spurs have been solid on the road in recent weeks, losing only once in their last five away matches, winning thrice, and drawing once. They have also won all 13 matches in which they led at half-time this season, and with the trio of Harry Kane, Dejan Kulusevski, and Heung Min Son in excellent form, Tottenham are a threat to Liverpool’s ambitions.
Conte will be unable to call on several of his players due to injuries. Japhet Tanganga, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon, and Oliver Skipp are on the sidelines and will not be on the bus to Liverpool.
