Tottenham vs Liverpool
Date: Sunday, 06 November 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Sunday’s Premier League matchup between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will take place in London.
The Reds will be seeking to capitalise on their Champions League victory against Napoli from midweek and restart their season.
In their final league game at Anfield, they were defeated by Leeds United.
It will be interesting to see if Jurgen Klopp’s team can deliver on his demands for a forceful response.
Tottenham, meantime, has performed admirably this year and is currently third in the Premier League standings.
They need to win matches like this to be competitive with Manchester City and Arsenal if they are to maintain a title bid this season.
In their last two games, Antonio Conte’s team defeated Bournemouth and Marseille in two dramatic victories, and they will be feeling confident going into this match.
Tottenham is the team in form in this match, and they ought to be able to battle to a victory in front of their home supporters.
Tottenham vs Liverpool Head to head :
- The last two consecutive head-to-head matches have ended in a stalemate.
- It has been over five years since the last time Spurs celebrated a victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against this team.
- The visitors have scored over two goals in their last two visits to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
- Both teams last met in May this year and the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
Tottenham vs Liverpool Prediction :
On paper, both teams appear to be very evenly matched, but the Reds are off of form and lacking in confidence. Spurs, on the other side, are gaining pace.
Despite the absence of Son and Romero, they have the ability to punish Liverpool in this match. In the end, the home team ought to win this one.
Tottenham vs Liverpool Team News :
Heung-min Son’s withdrawal from the game at Stade Velodrome in the first half due to a fractured eye socket sustained in a collision with Mbemba dealt a severe blow to Tottenham in midweek.
The South Korean forward is now seriously doubtful to represent his nation at the World Cup in Qatar later this month.
His personal setback exacerbates Spurs’ offensive problems as Richarlison is also out with a muscle injury and Dejan Kulusevski is unlikely to be able to start after only returning to light training a day or two ago.
Due to a muscle strain, Crristian Romero has missed his team’s last two games.
Given that the World Cup starts exactly two weeks after this game, he might not be risked, and Eric Dier could step in once more as a right-sided center-half to allow Lenglet and Davies to complete Conte’s back three.
The addition of Ibrahima Konate to Liverpool’s backline against Napoli was encouraging, and Joe Gomez is unlikely to start alongside van Dijk against Spurs in his place.
Long-term injuries have kept Joel Matip, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Arthur, Naby Keita, and other players out of action.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Dier, Lenglet, Davies; Emerson, Bissouma, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Perisic; Moura, Kane
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Nunez
