Tottenham vs Liverpool by Rahul

Tottenham
VS
Liverpool
Tottenham host Liverpool in this encounter knowing that Liverpool have won 5 out of their last 7 meetings so far. Tottenham will be relying a lot on their midfielders Lamela and Eriksen to create enough service for Harry Kane up front, who has yet to hit his stride after struggling to get enough service to put the ball in the back of the net. An interesting stat, Harry Kane has never scored a goal in August in the 3 Premier League seasons he's played so far. Tottenham will know that they take on a shaky Liverpool defence who shipped 2 goals last weekend to Burnley and 3 goals to Arsenal; and they are ripe of the taking. Lamela & Walker in particular should enjoy a good time with Milner playing at left back with Coutinho not offering much cover.

 

Liverpool looked a bit more like their offensive self after a strong 5-0 win against Burton in mid-week; but despite having 81% possession failed to find the back of the net against Burnley. Liverpool will take some confidence in this game knowing that they haven't lost to Tottenham in any of their last 7 games played with both fixtures being a draw last year. Klopp will potentially use this game as a yardstick to see how far his players have come along, and whether he needs to buy any players in the remaining days of the transfer window. Liverpool will rely a lot on Mane, Firmino, Coutinho and Origi up front to deliver much of the service. They will also feel that the Tottenham defence is up for the taking especially with Vorm in goal who can be susceptible to counter-attacking goals.

 

This game looks like the tie of the weekend, and I suspect both teams are going to be finding the back of the net, and we could be in for an exciting encounter.pin
