Liverpool will face Tottenham at Anfield Stadium, in Liverpool, at 32nd Round of English Premier League. Liverpool against Tottenham is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. This round is very important fighting for positions in the league. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Liverpool is still fighting for the first place in Premier League. Nearest chasers and main opponents Manchester City have 2 points less and 1 game in reserve, so now till the end of the season, every match is very important. The Reds are best defensive football showing team, moreover, they are second by the amount of scored goals. Until the seasons break Liverpool had almost 1 point difference with City. However, they have lost many points in 4 draws, while Manchester collected victories. Everton Liverpool is still unbeaten at home matches, so Tottenham will face strongest defense playing team in their Stadium.
In 15 home games, Liverpool won 13 and have drawn 2 matches against Leicester and Manchester City. They look very strong at Anfield with 44 goals scored and conceded only 9. M. Salah proves that he deserves the nomination of the best football player in Europe. In the Premier League, he is second in goals scoring 17 and has already made 7 assists. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have made one of the most dangerous attacking line-ups in Europe. In addition, Virgil Van Dijk is called greatest defenders of our time, however, he failed to help the national team playing against Germany in Euro 2020 qualification.
Liverpool this season looks very confident at finishing scoring chances, counter attacks, attacking and defending set pieces. Unfortunately, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri will miss the match against Spurs.
Tottenham plays a very strong season, however, they are facing the crisis in last matches. In last 5 matches, they won only once against Leicester and lost 3 games. In this very important seasons part, they lost last 3 away matches against Burnley, Chelsea, and Southampton. Although they are in 3rd place in the Premier League, their chances of saving place are very small if they continue to play poorly away. Moreover, Spurs will play against Manchester City in the quarter-final. Now they need to decide which championship is a priority for them because main players should be fully ready for most important matches.
In the last 15 away games Tottenham won 11 and lost 5. They like to play till the end in every match or taking win or losing. Such a decision was justified since they are in 2nd place for points earned on the road game. Dele Ali is finally back on track and feeling great before the game with Liverpool. All other main squad players are fit and ready to play, except Eric Dier who can miss the match due to injury.
We can call this season very successful, even knowing that they have lost 3 matches in the last games. Spurs are playing strong at counter attacks, attacking and defending set pieces, finishing scoring chances and shooting from direct free kicks. However, they are showing weaknesses at protecting the lead, aerial duels, avoiding individual errors and stopping opponents from creating chances.
In their last 5 matches, only one finished without scored goals at least from one team. Every match between them is very interesting and tough. Liverpool was more successful in 3 out of 5 matches. Only once in the 2017 year, Tottenham won at Wembley with 4:1 result.
