Liverpool vs Tottenham: Match Preview
There is a slim chance of Liverpool qualifying for the UEFA Champions League next season, but they will have to win their remaining games, including the one vs Tottenham Hotspur, and hope their rivals drop points.
This is a must-win game for Liverpool, and Jurgen Klopp will demand a strong performance from his players. The Reds are currently unbeaten in their last five league matches. So they will be full of confidence heading into this game as the battle for the top-four places heats up.
Tottenham Hotspur are coming into this match on the back of an impressive 2-2 draw against Manchester United. The north London giants have picked up just one win from their last six league matches. But they did well to come back from 2-0 down to secure a draw against the Red Devils.
The fightback against Manchester United will have given them some morale boost, and they will look to pull off an upset at Anfield now.
Jurgen Klopp was able to provide some promising injury updates at his press conference on Friday.
Ibrahima Konate should be fit in time to face Spurs, as should Diogo Jota after picking up a knock in the West Ham win.
Naby Keita returned to training this week but is unlikely to be risked. Roberto Firmino and Stefan Bajcetic remain out.
Mason revealed on Friday that Hugo Lloris is still out with a hip problem, so Fraser Forster will continue in goal for Spurs.
Yves Bissouma, Ryan Sessegnon, Emerson Royal and Rodrigo Bentancur remain on the treatment table for now.
