Premier League Preview: Tottenham Vs. LiverpoolPublished January 28, 2021 by Sol FH
The Hot Spur and the Reds go head-to-head tonight at 20:00 GMT at Tottenham Stadium.
Quite a bit has changed since the last meeting between Tottenham and Liverpool at Anfield last month. At that time, the Reds were in first place in the league, while the Hot Spur was in second. Since then, both teams have moved into a slump, with Liverpool dropping to 5th, currently on a 5-game winless streak, while Tottenham has dropped to sixth place and sits just one point behind Liverpool. A lot of things could change after tonight and Tottenham will be looking to avenge their loss in the said previous match.
The situation is becoming dire for Jurgen Klopp's side, which has not scored a goal in the last four games. It's hard to imagine that this was the league winner last season, and led the table for most of this year.
With a win tonight, Liverpool and Tottenham would move into 4th place ahead of West Ham.
Liverpool got some good news on the injury front, as Jordan Henderson is expected to make his return to the starting XI, following a minor groin injury that sidelined him for two matches. Captain of the Reds, Henderson's return will be a blessing to the team and Klopp should be able to use him for much of the match.
Joel Matip may also return, but Klopp will be wary of using him too much.
For the Hot Spur, they will be missing Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli, while Matt Doherty is in doubt for the match.
