Liverpool are all set to host Tottenham Hotspur in their second Premier League meeting of the current season at Anfield tonight.
Will Liverpool get back on the top of the table after this game? Well, that looks possible because Spurs haven’t been in good form in their last few games.
Spurs have lost three out of their last four Premier League games. Moreover, all three losses came away from home, which increases the pressure on the away side for tonight’s fixture.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have won three games out of their last five Premier League games. In addition, the Reds are undefeated in their last 36 home games in the league.
The last time Liverpool faced Spurs in the Premier League was back in September. The Reds got better of the home side as they triumphed 2-1 in that fixture.
Hotspur are currently on the third position in the Premier League table with 61 points from 30 games. The fourth positioned Manchester United are on the same points from 31 games. While Arsenal are on 5th position with 60 points from 30 games.
A loss for Spurs against Liverpool and a win for Arsenal vs Newcastle United will push the Gunners to the third spot. While Hotspur will shift down to the fourth position having exactly the same points as fifth positioned Manchester United.
The Reds, on the other hand, are on the second position with just one point below the league leaders, Manchester City. A win against Spurs will take Liverpool on top with two points lead over the Citizens. However, a loss against the Hotspur might hinder their chances of winning the league this season.
Joe Gomez trained with Liverpool but won’t be featured in this crucial fixture tonight. Trent Alexander-Arnold is also under doubt for this meeting against Spurs.
As for Hotspur, Eric Dier, Serge Aurier and Harry Winks are going to miss this fixture due to injury issues.
