Tomorrow afternoon we face Liverpool at the lane in our third league game of the season, as we face a Liverpool side who we have had a poor record against over the past few seasons, having failed to beat the reds in our last seven meetings. However, Pochettino’s side will fancy their chances against Jurgen Klopp’s somewhat unpredictable side who were beaten by Burnley last Saturday at turf moor. The reds attack will cause our defence problems throughout tomorrow’s game with new signing Sadio Mane, Daniel Sturridge and forward Roberto Firmino all expected to play and pose a real threat up front. However, Liverpool’s influential forward Phillipe Coutinho is a doubt as to is Emre Can and Divock Origi. Tomorrows game is certainly hard to call, but we will have to start well as a team and get an early goal if we are to cement our authority on the game and cause Klopp’s side problems throughout. Mousa Dembele and Hugo Lloris are our only two absentees ahead of tomorrow’s big game at the lane, and I am confident that we can put our recent bad form against the Reds to rest with a win tomorrow.
