SUPER SUNDAY !! Tottenham vs Liverpool on Sunday, @4pm
Tottanham face Liverpool on Sunday looking for a first win over their title rivals in five years, the longest barren run against any of the Premier League’s top six.
Spurs beat Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City last season alone, but have not ended up on winning side against the Reds since November, 2012.
Much has changed in the interim, however, as Tuesday’s thoroughly deserved draw with Real Madrid proved, and with a first Wembley league win under their belts Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for more this weekend.
Liverpool’s record against the Premier League’s fellow big boys is impressive – that 5-0 thrashing by Manchester City aside – and they held to north London fresh off scoring seven in the Champions League.
Tottenham’s Ben Davies is still sidelined through illness and will have to be assessed before the weekend, while Mousa Dembele is in the same boat with his ankle injury.
Victor Wanyama and Erik Lamela remain a few weeks from a return
The good news for Liverpool is they have no fresh injury concerns, the big news is that two of those stricken are Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana.
Tottenham possible starting XI:
Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Alderweireld; Trippier, Sissoko, Winks, Eriksen, Vertonghen; Son, Dele; Kane
Liverpool possible starting XI:
Mignolet; Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno; Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can; Salah, Firmino, Coutinho
